Delivery, Set Up & Take Down Service

Don’t Fancy Doing it Yourself?

We offer a complete delivery, set up & take down service for an additional charge.  We can deliver all of your hire items directly to your venue for you to set out yourself, or we can set them out for you along with any items provided by yourself by pre-arrangement (we need to know exactly what you would like us to do in advance & all items need to be unwrapped, ready to put out & clearly labeled).  We charge by number of staff required & the time we expect it to take, this is a fixed cost so if it takes us longer than expected you will not be charged any extra.  The delivery charge is worked out on a per mile cost from our office based on a  return journey using a man with van service & is only a pick up / drop off service to a home or venue reception.

We are happy to dress the entire venue for you or only put out a few items, it is completely up to you.   We can also set up a ceremony at one location, wait until it is over & then move the items from that location to the reception venue.   Waiting time is chargeable & will be included in the fee.

 

Our staff can set up anything from ceiling decor & backdrops to aisle carpets, trees & centrepieces.  We are approved by English Heritage & are therefore able to work in stately homes & listed buildings.  We are always respectful of the venue we are working in & always leave the area as we found it (often better)!  The company also has Public Liability Insurance for £10 million which is required for some of the more grand venues in our area.  We have several extremely tall ladders so we can reach the ceiling in most venues / marquees.  We also have a pulley system to hoist large chandeliers.

 

We prepare most of the items at the warehouse during the week & transport them to the venue ready made. Some items however need to be made or constructed on site (especially fresh flowers) or large installations of lighting etc.  We will liase with your venue about the best day to set up, sometimes this is 3am on the day of the wedding  / event & sometimes a day or even two days before.  We also arrange a suitable take down time with them.  If this has to be middnight or 1am obviously the charge is more than if it is 9am the next day so we need to get in contact with your venue before we can quote you an accurate price.

If you would prefer to collect the hire items to set them up yourself please check with us the size of vehicle you require, please do not turn up in a small car to collect charger plates or blossom trees for example.  If you would like us to deliver the items to your home or venue this can be arranged however you will need to make sure that somebody (NOT THE VENUE) is there to meet the courier to ensure that everything arrives safely & on the return journey you will need to make sure that everything is packed back into its original boxes & is checked off & handed to the courier – again (NOT THE VENUE).  You will be charged for any missing or broken items & missing packaging so please make sure it is packaged as it was recieved.  The reason that we do not like the venue to receieve & return items is that they will not take responsibility for them on your behalf & expensive hire goods often go missing or are returned broken due to having been incorrectly handled.

 

We look forward to hearing from you about your event set up / delivery needs & we are happy to have a chat about it with you & decide together what the best way forward is. Remember Team Work Makes The Dream Work.   Sometimes we work together with the client to do the larger items whilst the client does the easier tasks , other times we do it all or just drop it off & collect it again.  Of course you are welcome to just collect it & do it yourself! We offer amazing flexibility to suit all kinds of events & budgets. We look forward to working with you soon xx
