The headpiece(s) will always remain the property of Lulu Bloom Millinery.
Headpieces can be hired for more than one occasion; however, a hire fee is applicable to each specific wear date. Headpieces must be returned in between hire dates unless otherwise agreed with Lulu Bloom Millinery.
Headpieces will be sent to clients at least 2 days before their hire date via special delivery.
There will be no refund given for headpieces not worn when hired out unless otherwise agreed by Lulu Bloom Millinery.
Headpieces must be returned by the client in the same condition as received and in the original packaging provided - any concerns please get in touch. Items must be posted back to Lulu Bloom Millinery the next working day after the date a piece is hired for. Damaged or missing hat boxes will incur a charge at the discretion of Lulu Bloom Millinery.
In the event of damage or lost items the full sales price will be charged to the client unless otherwise agreed at the discretion of Lulu Bloom Millinery.
Payment is due on reservation of the headpiece for a specific date. This will be confirmed via invoice.
Clients are responsible for delivery costs which will be invoiced at the same time as the hire fee invoice – this serves as the contract to confirm hire dates and client details, including address and contact information. If a client needs to make contact information alterations or delivery changes, this must be done so in writing for the avoidance of doubt and miscommunication as to where a hire piece will be sent.
Lulu Bloom Millinery will not take responsibility for issues arising with delivery that our deemed out of their control.
Clients are liable for any hired headpiece to them after it leaves the premises at Lulu Bloom Millinery, until it’s return (for the avoidance of doubt this includes the delivery services used).
In person collection is available via prior arrangement of a time and date.
Hired headpieces will be subject to a cancellation fee payable to Lulu Bloom Millinery if cancelled within 14 days of the event date – the full hire fee will be retained. If prior to the 14 days of the agreed hire date, a full refund will be given.
If headpieces are returned to Lulu Bloom Millinery damaged, clients will be responsible to pay the full cost price as advertised on the website. It is at the sole discretion of Lulu Bloom Millinery as to what constitutes normal wear and tear and irreversible damage or significant workmanship to repair an item. This will be discussed in full with the client.
Clients must check their headpiece on receipt of it thoroughly and contact Lulu Bloom Millinery immediately if they have any concerns regarding its condition.
Wherever possible Lulu Bloom Millinery asks all hire clients to keep any headwear hired from Lulu Bloom Millinery out of the rain. Headpieces are made with natural fibres and delicate materials which do not cope well with wet weather. Please use an umbrella and treat the piece with respect as if it was your own. This will help avoid any damage fees from stains, marks, indentations (not an exhaustive list). If there is damage to a headpiece, please contact Lulu Bloom Millinery and do not attempt repairs yourself.
Clients are responsible for the full purchase fee if a headpiece is lost or stolen - please inform Lulu Bloom Millinery immediately of any such occurrence.
If Lulu Bloom Millinery is unable to provide the headpiece agreed for hire, every effort will be made to find a suitable replacement. If this is not possible or the client does not agree to the replacement, a refund of the hire cost will be given in full.
