Terms and Conditions of Hire 
The hire period will be up to 72 hours, this being collection or delivery to your home or venue the day before and return or collection the day after the event, unless otherwise by prior arrangement. 
A deposit of 50% of the hire costs will be required to secure a booking, to be paid either by cash, cheque, Paypal or bank transfer direct to our account.  
The deposit will be returned in full for any cancellation made more than 90 days before event. For cancellations made less than 90 days before the event, the deposit will only be returned if we are able to re-book the date. 
Receipt of deposit by Magic Round About Vintage is taken as confirmation that the hirer has read, and accepts these terms and conditions. 
Full balance of payment is due 30 days before the event or at time of booking if this is less than 30 days.
Washing up is included in the price of all orders, the hirer is expected to remove food and liquid leftovers from china prior to re-packaging.
After use and prior to return or collection of the china, it must be re-packaged carefully by the hirer in packaging and boxes provided by Magic Round About Vintage.
If you have arranged for Magic Round About Vintage to collect the china it is essential that it is re-packaged ready for collection at the agreed time. We will make an additional charge to the hirer of £40 per hour or part of an hour for any time spent waiting, or for re-packaging ourselves if this becomes necessary. This fee would be deducted from the damage waiver (see below) along with any deductions for breakages or losses. 
China items will be, in our opinion, in good vintage condition.  However, due to the nature and age of the items, patterns and gilt can be expected to show signs of wear (but will not be chipped or cracked). Our table linen is mostly handmade and pre-loved may show slight signs of use or irregularities (but will not have holes or tears).
Our fine vintage English glassware and china is fragile. During the period of hire, the care of the china is the sole responsibility of the hirer.  All items are used at the hirer’s own risk and Magic Round About Vintage will accept no liability for injury to persons or damage to property caused during its use. 
Our vintage cutlery, glassware and china are not dishwasher or microwave safe.  If it is being re-used during the hire period, please wash it carefully by hand.
£100 returnable damage waiver to be paid as a separate cheque with the balance. This will be held by Magic Round About Vintage until the inventory has been checked after return of all items. A deduction of £5 will be made for any cup, saucer, tea plate, or bud vase broken, chipped or missing or for any missing item of cutlery. A deduction of £10 will be made for any serving plate, milk jug or sugar bowl broken, chipped or missing. A deduction of £30 will be made for any teapot, or cake stand broken or chipped or for any seriously damaged tablecloth. The balance will be returned to the hirer by post within 10 days of the end of the hire period.  If damage charges exceed £100, the hirer agrees to pay the excess.
All our china and linens are of genuine vintage and have been made and sourced in the United Kingdom.
Delivery and collection is available free of charge within a ten mile radius of Sutton Coldfield and at a charge of 50p per mile thereafter.
