How long does it take to set up and take down the equipment and is that included in my hire time?

Depending on the type of items and quantity, this will vary as dressing 100 chairs in chair covers and sash will usually take an hour or less but more quantity will require more time allocated. Chairs and tables must be laid out in the desired formation before we arrive. Please contact us to discuss timing if the venue has allocated a set time for you.

For our chocolate fountain hire, we aim to arrive 30-40 minutes before the hire time to set this up so we do not take any time out of your hire time for set up.

Delivery / Collection

JDA Weddings reserves the right to deduct this amount from the refundable security deposit. At the point of booking or prior to the vehicle being dispatched it is the responsibility of the customer to Inform JDA Weddings of any additional requirements of a venue, such as providing driver names or vehicle details, and bringing personal protection equipment and vehicle passes. Any obstructions within the venue such as steps, doors, third-party staff or even long distances to the delivery/collection point.

  • JDA Weddings driver(s) will endeavour to call the provided contact number(s) 15-30 minutes prior to arrival. Although JDA Weddings will do all it can to ensure this call happens, this is an additional service and cannot be guaranteed. Nor can it be used as a reason for not being present at the arranged delivery/collection address at the time of the driver’s arrival.

  • It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure they or an authorised representative are present during both delivery and collection windows, failure to be present at the driver’s arrival time may incur redelivery, recollection or waiting charges.

  • Any discrepancies must be made in writing preferably on the delivery or collection note within 3 hours of delivery. If there is no authorised person(s) present to sign for receipt and or return of the goods JDA Weddings will choose at its discretion whether it will continue to deliver or collect the goods without a signature.

Upon collection, all hired goods must be ready for JDA Weddings staff to collect in one area. For instance, the hired goods should not be scattered around a venue in multiple rooms. Additional labour charges may apply for the additional time spent collecting in these or other similar instances.

  • During each collection, the driver will do a preliminary check and count the goods where possible. However, with some items, this count may not always be possible. For instance, catering equipment and linen may be too numerous and time-consuming for the driver to do while on site and although every effort will be made by JDA Weddings staff to document any potential discrepancies during delivery and collection, the driver may not notice potential damage, dirt or loss. However, all items will be thoroughly checked, counted and cleaned in a controlled environment. It is with these after these checks by a JDA Weddings staff that any stock-related charges due to damage, loss or dirt are reported.

  • JDA Weddings may refuse to collect any goods that are not ready for collection, any goods left behind are the responsibility of the paying customer to return to JDA Weddings or relevant additional hire or replacement costs will be passed on to the customer.

  • JDA Weddings may also refuse to deliver or collect in addition to charging, due to a breach of any of these guidelines.

If We Are Late

  • JDA Weddings will always endeavour to arrive as scheduled and has a strong track record for being on time. This may not always be possible due to traffic, weather conditions, issues with other jobs and any other delays. For this reason, JDA Weddings recommends scheduling delivery to a ‘safe’ time which allows for the worst to happen and your event to function with other arrangements. JDA Weddings can accept no responsibility for a customer’s failure to account for this matter and will not compensate beyond the value of any monies taken for any given job.

  • If JDA Weddings is at fault and in breach of its agreement with the customer, JDA Weddings may refund partial or whole delivery fees. This will be based on how late JDA Weddings are and whether the customer had allowed enough time as per JDA Weddings guidelines to account for this.
