Do you charge more for hire on a New Year's Eve wedding?

Is there a surcharge to hire marquees/furniture etc when our wedding is on nye?

The hire price of our items never change. We do however have different labour charges if your items need to be delivered or picked up on a public holiday.

If you are able to organise pick up and drop off yourself for the items being hired, then there is no additional surchage. If we need to drop off and collect on either NYE or New Years Day then a surchage will be applied. Hope your day goes to plan!

We do not charge more for new years eve, however we do not deliver, setup or packdown on public holidays due to ;about costs. Also fees may vary depending on loaction and hired products.

Hi there!

There is no surcharge for hiring our equipment over the NYE period, however we don't set up or pack down New Years day (or any other public holiday) due to staffing availability and labour hire costs.

Kind regards

No we do not charge more if you wish to hire on NYE. Our prices remain the same when hiring candelabras. However, I am unable to speak for other services you hire from (e.g marquees, floral, venues).

No. There will only be a surcharge if the delivery or pickup date is a public holiday as we will pay our delivery staff the public holiday rate.
