What restrictions are there on delivery days and times?
We have no delivery time restrictions: Hire Society can deliver 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. However, deliveries outside our core business hours are more expensive, and deliveries that need to bumped in or out at set times also have an additional surcharge.
Our standard delivery fees: These apply to deliveries and collections that occur between 8am and 5pm on Monday to Friday, and 8am until 1pm on Saturdays. It is possible to specify a 3-hour window for both delivery and collection within these hours with our standard delivery prices. If your event begins early or ends late, consider getting your goods delivered the day before, or collected the day after as this will save on delivery fees (the price of hire will not be affected).
Timed delivery fees: If products are required for a particular time (either delivery or collection) then we charge extra for this service. Timed deliveries and collections are considered to be any delivery or collection with less than a 3-hour window.
Out-of-hours fees: These are for deliveries and collections that occur on our regular business days, but earlier or later than our usual delivery times. The fee will depend on how much earlier or later than usual business hours your goods are required.
Late night / midnight delivery fees: Any deliveries or collections after 10 pm are more expensive than our out-of-hours fees.
Sunday delivery fees: These are for deliveries and collections on a Sunday, when we are not open. Sunday deliveries are more expensive than standard and out-of-hours deliveries.
Public holiday delivery fees: We can deliver on public holidays. Public holiday delivery fees are more expensive than Sunday delivery fees.
