CONDITIONS OF HIRE
Equipment hiring is done on a first to book basis and is subject to availability. To secure the Equipment for your booking, a 25% deposit needs to be paid by the due date given. Should this not occur by the due date, the Company has the right to hire any Equipment to another Customer. This is a hiring agreement only and does not constitute or give rise to any sale of the Equipment to the Customer. Pink Caviar Events is the sole exclusive owner of the Equipment.
Unless otherwise stated in writing, the Company’s quotation will be valid for a period of fourteen (14) days from the date of issue. Booking requests made within fourteen (14) days of the hire date are subject to written confirmation and availability and require immediate full payment by credit card or cash.
On payment of the Hire without the Customer’s written confirmation, it shall be deemed that the Customer agrees to and accepts these Terms and Conditions of Hire. The Hire Period will begin from the commencement date specified by the Company and shall be collected by the date specified by the Company. Any extension of the hire period needs to be agreed to by the Company and may incur additional fees.
DEPOSIT AND PAYMENT TERMS
The Customer will pay the Hire Fee to the Company on the Payment Date as stated in the agreement. In addition, a non-refundable deposit of 25% (of the total booking amount including GST, delivery fees and/or required setup and collection) is required at the time of the booking. The balance payment shall be paid fourteen (14) days before the Hire Date.
Payments can be made in cash, direct deposit into the company’s bank account (BSB 302-973 / Acc 0288485 / Name Pink Caviar Projects Pty Ltd) or by Credit Card via our secure online portal by the due date specified. Please note that all credit cards will incur a 1.85% surcharge (Visa and Mastercard only). Please advise us if you wish to pay by credit card, and we will send it through as a secure link. Should the final payment not be made fourteen (14) days before the Hire Date, the company reserves the right to cancel the booking and no longer supply any Equipment to the Customer. The deposit will not be returned should this occur.
MINIMUM HIRE FEE
The minimum hire fee for any event is $500, excluding any delivery, pick-up and GST fee. Unfortunately, we do not offer a DIY option.
The Customer may cancel an order at any time by giving the company written notice to firstname.lastname@example.org. No cancellation by the Customer is valid unless it has been acknowledged in writing by the Company. Please note that the following cancellations fee will occur:
- Cancellation more than 30 days prior to the event – Loss of deposit (+ any personalised products ordered)

Cancellations of bookings/events due to weather shall still be subject to the cancellation policy above. The Company is in no way responsible for inclement weather that may cause the Customer to cancel their hire booking.
Pink Caviar Events carry public liability insurance to the value of $20,000,000. However, we recommend that separate “event” insurance be considered to cover such eventualities as inclement weather, theft, equipment failure and any other unforeseen incidents.
Pending on your event, a cash bond may be required as a security bond. It is held in the case of any damages, breakages, theft or missing Equipment. Any damaged, missing and/or very unclean items will be charged at full replacement cost and/or cleaning cost will be deducted from the Customer’s bond. General linen dry cleaning is included in the Hire Fee paid by the Customer. The company reserves the right to request an additional security bond to cover any high-value Equipment. Individual booking requirements will determine the amount. If a pre-paid Bond is required, the Company will return this to the Customer within seven (7) days of the Hire Period ends by EFT.
USE OF EQUIPMENT
All Equipment supplied on hire is the property of the Company and remains so until it is returned to the Company. The Customer will be responsible for the Equipment until it is collected by the Company and warrants that the Equipment will be returned in good working order. The Company makes no representation as to the suitability of the Equipment for a need or event, and it is the Customer’s responsibility to make that judgment on their behalf.
SITE APPROVAL AND ACCESS
The Customer shall be responsible for giving any local or other authorities any necessary notice of their intention to erect the Equipment or to have Equipment erected and shall pay all fees in connection in addition to that. All permits will be the responsibility of the Customer.
The Customer shall solely be responsible for ensuring that the site is cleared and ready for the delivery and set up of the Hire Equipment. The Customer must also consider access to the site to suitable access, and egress from the site is adequate to suit the mode of delivery or pick up. The Company must be notified in advance if the Site has difficult access like stairs, steep driveways, parking problems or height restrictions. The Customer will be liable for any fees that will apply for additional crew or time taken in delivering and setting up of Hire Equipment.
Parking arrangements must be made to allow our vehicle and team to set up and pack down your event. Should parking fees be incurred by our staff, these charges will be passed onto the Customer.
DELIVERY, SET-UP & COLLECTION
There must be a site contact available during the delivery time frame to receive the delivery of the Hire Equipment. A fee will be charged to the Customer for the delivery and set up of Hire Equipment. This fee will vary depending upon the distance travelled, the amount of Equipment hired, the setup/ installation time required. The Customer will be advised of the fee at the time of quotation once all Equipment has been decided upon. This fee may be subject to change should the Customer then change the amount of Equipment hired. Delivery will be made to the Ground level unless organised prior with the Company.
A fee will be charged to the Customer to allow the Company to return to the Site to collect the Equipment pending when the collection is required (same night or next day).
Should Pink Caviar staff be made to wait more than 15 minutes at the time of delivery or pick up, waiting, time charges will commence. Time will be charged at $50+GST per 1/2 hour, in 15-minute increments.
SECURITY AND SAFETY
In the event of the Equipment being stolen from the Site, the Customer shall notify the Company in writing stating the full circumstances of the theft and the time the police were notified. A copy of the police report must be included for insurance purposes. Until the Company receives such notification, the hiring charges will continue. The Customer shall also indemnify the Company for any such loss of the Equipment at the current replacement cost of the Equipment and must pay that cost to the Company on demand. In addition, the Customer must ensure adequate lighting, waterproofing, safe power supply, public protection, covering of power lines and such facilities as might be considered necessary for the facility or in the interests of safety.
If, after the commencement of hire by the Company, any specification changes are requested, the cost of such changes will be borne by the Customer.
MISUSE OF EQUIPMENT
The Company shall not be liable for any loss or damages arising out of the overloading, exceeding rated capacity, misuse, or abuse of the Equipment by the Customer. The Customer agrees to keep the Company indemnified in respect thereof. Any Equipment used outside is done so entirely at the Customer’s risk. In no case should the Equipment be used or left outside in the rain or other damaging weather.

DAMAGE, LOST, STOLEN OR UNCLEAN EQUIPMENT
Upon delivery and set up of the Equipment and until the collection of the Equipment, the Customer has full responsibility for all Equipment hired. The Customer will pay either the repair or the full replacement cost of any Equipment badly damaged, lost or stolen. The Company will decide if any damaged/lost/stolen equipment can be repaired or require replacement.

Any Equipment damaged from the weather is the Customer’s full responsibility and shall be paid at full replacement cost to the Company.
The Company’s Equipment shall be delivered and set up in a clean and well-maintained condition.

- The Company will have no liability to the Customer if it is the Customer’s responsibility to prepare the Site for the delivery and installation of the Equipment or where it is the responsibility of the Customer to provide the facilities. For example, at the time of delivery of the Equipment to the Site, the Site is not prepared, or the facilities are not available.
