How do I order the candles? Please download the candle order from here. Simply fill in the quantities you require and email the form back to us at hire@thehireco.com.au. We will then send you an invoice.

Do I have to return all of the packaging? Yes, all packaging must be returned with the goods. The package has been especially made for the product itself and is the best way to keep it safe and free from damage. If the packaging is not returned with the product, new suitable packaging will need to be sourced which will result in some bond being held.

What happens if I break or loose something? In the event that an item is lost or broken please let us know as soon as possible. Depending on the situation some or all of the bond will be held to pay for the item to be replaced or fixed. A list of item replacement costs can be found here. If the replacement cost is greater than the bond you've paid then we will send you an "order" to pay the difference.

Can I pick up and drop off to you? Yes, absolutely! You can pick up and drop off to us in Coburg North. The address will be provided to you once the order is confirmed.

This courier service will need to take place during business hours and will be an additional charge. If delivering directly to a venue we will need to get in touch with the venue to discuss delivery and pick up times prior to providing you with a cost. Get in touch to obtain a delivery cost.

Can I come and view the products? We don't have a showroom setup but we do welcome you in to take a look at products upon request. Get in touch to make an appointment and let us know what you'd like to look at so we can get it ready for you.

Do you deliver interstate? No, unfortunately we haven't found a reliable interstate courier we trust with our products.

Can I buy your products?

We also turn our stock over regularly so if you're interested in purchasing any ex-hire product we may be able to help you out.

Does the damage waiver and bond get refunded? The damage waiver covers general wear and tear and cleaning of the items, it is not refunded. The bond is refunded once everything is returned providing there are no lost or damaged items.

When will my bond be refunded? Please allow up to 48 hours from the time the products are returned to The Hire Co. for them to be counted and checked. The bond refund will be processed once this has happened.
