To help customers placing event hire orders with hire charges of more than £500 we offer a 25% deposit scheme to help spread the cost.
If you’re running a large event or occasion, then budgetary constraints and cashflow are going to be two things that are forefront in the mind. While it makes sense to book event hire early to ensure availability, if cashflow is tight it can prove to be difficult leading event organisers into making really difficult decisions.
At Expo Hire Solent, we work with large events held throughout Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire such as at The Mayflower, Winchester Cathedral and O2 Guildhall Southampton. We are well aware of how large orders can get and with this in mind we have in place a large order deposit scheme for those customers.
Our large order deposit scheme is simple; place an order more than four weeks in advance with over £500 in hire charges and only a non-refundable 25% holding deposit up front has to be paid to secure it, paying the remainder no later than 28 days before the date of delivery.
The best part about this scheme is there is no need to apply, and no need to await quotes. Our new and updated checkout has been configured to automatically offer the deposit scheme when conditions are met, allowing customers to book their order without an issue.
When the time approaches for the remainder to be paid we will send emails to confirm the value to be paid. In the unfortunate circumstance of an event being cancelled before the final payment is made only the deposit is forfeit.
For full details please consult our terms and conditions.
Please note that we do not charge by default a security deposit - please see our minor damage waiver scheme.
