Step 8

Return the costumes

After your fabulous performance, it’s time to return the costumes.

Please return all garments without laundering or pressing. Some of our costumes are very delicate and as such require special treatment when being laundered, ironed or pressed. If a costume needs laundering or pressing whilst on hire please contact us for written approval.

It is the responsibility of the Hirer to check and carefully pack the goods for return. Costumes and accessories must be neatly packed and returned in the same packaging it arrived in. Hats and props are to be packed separately from other clothing to avoid damage. Damage to hire equipment may result in additional charges.
