Terms & Conditions for Hiring
These terms and conditions are a legal agreement between you and Loop Hires. By hiring with Loop Hires, you are agreeing to follow all the terms and conditions as stated.
Please only place a garment hire order if you are based in Australia.
Rental orders received from outside Australia cannot be fulfilled and will not be refunded. International customers are welcome to purchase from our resale brand intheloopvault.com
All postal hires must be posted back on the last day of your hire period or next business day after your event. If your event falls on a weekend, the hired garment must be posted back the following Monday before 2pm or 12pm in rural areas. Please only post the garment back OVER THE COUNTER at an Australia Post outlet (in the provided express satchel) and retain a copy of the lodgement receipt.
Do not post the garment back via a street post box. You will be liable if the garment's return is delayed or lost due to this.
If dropping off your return in person, please pop your hired item into the return box at our Toowong Brisbane location on/before the last day of your hire period by 4pm (Please see instructions included with your rental). Let us know if a later drop-off is required.
If you fail to return a bag/garment by the pre-agreed date, we reserve the right to charge you late fees of $20 per day delayed until the bag/garment is returned in accordance.
Failure to return the item altogether will be considered theft and you hereby authorise Loop Hires/LoopVault to charge your payment method 100% of the Replacement Cost/RRP or 150% of the Replacement Cost if the garment/bag is no longer available for replacement. This covers the loss of the item plus the expected loss of revenue from further rentals of that product.
Loop Hires reserves the right to charge your payment method for non-compliance of the terms and conditions under which you rent our products.
If damages/late fees are not paid within 7 days of being requested by Loop Hires, the matter will be taken up with a debt collecting agency and you will be liable for any additional charges and fees incurred.
CARE OF RENTAL GARMENTS
Please treat all items with utmost care, as if they were your own. If an item is returned damaged, the customer/hirer is required to pay for the cost of repair, or the full replacement cost (that is the Recommended Retail Price of the garment - RRP) in the event that the garment is damaged beyond repair.
Please do not attempt to clean/wash or iron the garment yourself as this could result in major damages in the case of delicate materials. Simply return your item as is and let us take care of all the cleaning for you.
Do note that you are hiring from a dress hire business where although our items are in good, worn condition, garments would have been worn more than once and some small general wear and tear or repairs may be present. We strive to ensure quality, however as expected, garments will not always be in a 100% brand new condition. Minor defects do not qualify for a refund unless otherwise decided by us.
In the unlikely event that you receive a badly damaged item from us, please contact us immediately and send a timestamped photograph of the noticeable damage. If you fail to let us know within 2 hours of local pick up or the same day your postal order is received, you lose the right to dispute this matter. We will work out the next steps and decide if it qualifies for a partial or full refund.
LATE ORDERS/SIZING ISSUES
For customers based outside of Brisbane and needing hires express posted to you, please ensure orders are placed by Tuesday 2pm (For weekend hires) or at least 4 business days before your event to allow ample time for your item to arrive.
We will not be liable for late deliveries that were placed outside of this timeframe and no refunds will be issued.
If your rental garment does not fit as desired, please reach out to us as soon as possible at email@example.com. Post your hire back within 24 hours of delivery and a credit note (less the cost of shipping to and from you) will be issued once we receive the hire back in its original, unworn condition.
If the prepaid post bag provided is lost by you, you are held responsible for returning the item at your own expense by the expected return date. The alternative return must be using EXPRESS Australia Post courier service. You must immediately notify us with an updated tracking number.
Once the item has arrived to you, you hold the responsibility to these items. When providing a shipping address, you confirm that this address is your physical address and you hold yourself accountable for the items when delivered. If you provide us an address where you do not physically reside, Loop Hires shall take no responsibility for non-delivery or any liability of what happens to the product after delivery.
You may cancel your rental order subject to the following cancellation fees and policies:
i. A cancellation request received fourteen (14) or more days in advance of your booking start date will incur no cancellation fees*. A full refund will be issued back to your original payment method.
ii. Cancellation requests received less than fourteen (14) days of your booking start date will incur no cancellation fees*. You will be entitled to store credits for the full amount paid, including postage (if any). The store credits can be used on a future hire with us.
Unless otherwise specified, if you are entitled to store credits for your cancellation, it will be issued with a 6 month expiry.
iii. If you cancel seven (7) or fewer days in advance of the delivery date, you will receive a credit note for the Hire Fee associated with the cancelled order, less a cancellation fee of $20.
*All orders placed using AfterPay or Paypal will incur a $10 cancellation fee to cover any platform processing costs. (This is on top of the cancellation fee in section iii, if applicable.)
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for any cancellation requests.
