Should the order date be less than 14 days prior to the delivery/collection date, the invoice will be payable in full upon confirmation of order. The goods will not be available for collection/delivery until the invoice has been paid in full.

Payment can be made by Bank Transfer, Paypal or debit/ credit card in person.

Delivery and Collection
Nitty-Gritty Events is based in Shoreham-by-Sea and we are pleased to offer a free delivery/collection service within a 20-mile radius.  A charge of 60p per mile will be incurred for anything further afield.  We do not charge anything if you would like to pick up and drop off the items yourself from our office.

Washing up Service
If hiring any of our glassware items we charge 20% of the hire cost.  This is waived if you have event management by Nitty-Gritty on the day.

Please note, due to the delicate nature of vintage glassware, the items in the collection are not dishwasher friendly.  So we kindly ask you to remove all food and liquid, repack the crockery in the packaging provided and we will do the washing-up for you.  If you are using an event manager other than Nitty-Gritty, we would also ask you to inform them of this information to ensure minimal breakages.

Loss and Damage
A refundable damage deposit of £100 or 10% of the hire cost (whichever is the greater) will be required for all hire items and will be returned once the hire items have been returned & checked for any damage or loss. You will be informed within 5 working days if there are any damaged or missing items to the order. We provide a checklist so that you/ your event manager or your venue can check off the items as you pack them away.

Any damages or shortages will incur a charge, calculated at cost price as opposed to the hire price and deducted from the damage deposit. If breaks or damages total than the damage deposit, you will be charged for any extra costs.

Damage deposits will be returned within 10 working days of the return of the order, either in full or less the amount of any breakages.

If for any reason you need to cancel your hire order, we ask that you inform Nitty Gritty as soon as possible, in writing.

If the cancellation is given with more than 30 days notice before the date of the event you will not be billed for the remaining cost of these items.

However if the order is cancelled with less than 30 days notice the following charges will apply;
Between 15-29 days                  50%
Under 14 days                         100%
