Urban Chic can only provide an estimated delivery window for installation and pick up.
We strongly advise against photography being booked same day as installation in case of delays. Delays occur from time to time due to a number of reasons and are sometimes unavoidable. If the Styling installation is delayed for any reason (including the fault of Urban Chic), Urban Chic will not provide compensation for the delay pay or reimburse photography fees for booked photography that is unable to go ahead or cannot be carried out due to the installation delay. This includes if items require replacing or swapping out.
If we arrive at the property and are unable to carry out the installation immediately due to access issues, a delay fee of $550 shall be payable immediately.
Hanging of Mirrors/Artworks
If art or mirrors are to be used for Styling, we will need to create/drill holes and insert hooks/fasteners in the internal walls of the property. These holes/hooks/fasteners shall be left in place by Urban Chic upon furniture removal.
It is the sole responsibility of the vendor to advise Urban Chic via phone or text to 0418 166 186 or email 3 business days prior if the Renter requires the furnishings to be collected at the expiration of the agreed rental period (typical hire period is 6 weeks from date of installation). If Urban Chic is not advised regarding collection on or before this date the owner hereby agrees to an automatic extension period being applied on a weekly basis with the extension ‘base rate’ being immediately due and payable. Extension base rates are calculated using a simple formula of the furniture rental component of the quote/invoice including GST divided by the 4 paid weeks of the original invoice. Extension periods shall be billed either weekly, fortnightly or otherwise at the discretion of Urban Chic. Discounts to this base rate may be applied at the sole discretion of Urban Chic and will depend on demand for stock at the time.
Extensions shall be applied and invoiced in blocks of 7 days and cannot be pro rata. i.e. if only 4 days are used, 7 days will be charged. Weekends are included as standard days.
