Why are your prices lower than other companies - is there a catch?
Our prices are lower because you are dealing direct with the source company. We don't deal with any third party or add any mark-ups. We also include GST in our pricing so there are no hidden costs for you to worry about.

I want one of your package deals but there's not enough chairs!
We can add extra chairs to any of our package deals for you.

Can we collect the chair covers rather than you delivering them to save money?
Yes. You can. We just require the name of the person collecting them and one form of ID for security.

Do you deliver and pick up and what do you charge?
Yes. Delivery is calculated based on location. Just ask.

I don't know the exact number of chair covers I require as my numbers may change. Do you allow changes?
Yes. You can make changes right up to 3 working days before your wedding or event.

How long does it take to put on chair covers?
It will take one person just over an hour to put on 50 chair covers. Make sure all tables are set and finished before dressing chairs. The quickest and easiest method is to first drape all chair covers over chairs. Then, go back and fit them. Then do the same with chair sashes.

My wedding reception is on a Saturday, when would you deliver and collect?
For weekend weddings or events we deliver on Friday or Saturday. We pick up linen on Sunday or Monday. You should have linen packed and ready for us to collect. We can be flexible on delivery and collection times to suit you.

Do I need to wash linen? What if one of my guests spills red wine?

We ask that you dry any wet linen. You do not have to wash it. Just hang it up to air dry. Damp linen produces mould very quicky which is impossible to remove. We will charge for any linen returned wet. We will remove any stains.

When am I required to pay the invoice in full?
We ask that you pay a 20% deposit on confirmation of booking and then the full amount of the invoice at least 3 working days before delivery or pick up.

How do we pay?
You can pay by credit card (over the phone) or by internet banking (direct bank details are on your invoice). For last minute bookings we only accept credit card or cash.

I'm not sure what chair covers I require, do you send out samples?
Yes. We do. You need to describe the chair to us and we will send you the appropriate chair cover and a sample sash or band. We require $10 for this service and you will find a stamped addressed envelope with your samples so you can return them. We ask that samples are returned within 7 days.

Can we visit your showroom?
Yes. We advise you phone us first as we may be with other clients. Our showroom is only open by appointment and is based in Glenfield, North Shore, Auckland. Just over the Auckland harbour bridge.


How do I check availability?
The easiest way is to ask us by email or phone. We will confirm back to you with the availability of the items required for your function date.

How far in advance do I need to book?
We can often help out at short notice. If you want to guarantee your chair covers for your event date it pays to book in advance though. As much warning as possible is always appreciated.

How can I be sure that the products I hire are in good condition?
All our chair covers are professionally cleaned after each hire and inspected. Anything that is not in excellent condition is removed from our hire pool. There is no point in hiring inferior products because our customers wouldn't use our service again. Our hire prices are the cheapest we can offer for the quality of service we provide. Please don't ask us to discount further.

What happens if I lose a chair cover?
It happens! We will charge replacement cost on all hire items, so if any item(s) are damaged or lost we will ask you to pay the replacement cost which is always stated on your hire agreement.

Replacement cost of a commecial chair cover: $35 each
Replacement cost of a chair sash or band: $5.50 each
Replacement cost of table runner: $10.00 each
Replacement cost of a tablecloth: $35.00 each
Replacement cost of a napkin: $3.50 each

How long is the hire period?
1 day. However, we have a 4 day hire which allows you time to pick up an return at no extra charge. Weekends are: pick up Friday, use Saturday and return Sunday or Monday. We can be flexible for Waiheke and remote location hires in New Zealand.

Can you help me save money on my wedding or event?
Yes! Of course! Tell us what you need and your budget and we'll put a chair cover package deal together for you. We also have general party hire items like centrepieces and helium balloons.

What size tablecloths do I need for my tables
If you are hiring trestle tables you will need a 2.4 metre (54" x 96") tablecloth to fit a standard 1.8 metre trestle table. If your trestle table is 2.4 metres you will need a 3 metre (50" x 120") tablecloth. For round tables linen usually comes in 2.3m, 2.7m, 3m and 3.3m.

How many people fit around a table?
1.8 trestle table = 6 people
2.4 trestle table = 8 people
Banquet topped trestle table = 10 people
1.2 round table = 4-6 people
1.5 round table = 6-10 people
