Home / Terms and Conditions

In these terms and conditions, PartyIgloos, their sub-contractors and agents are referred to as the Company. The signatory to the contract of hire is the Hirer. The following terms and conditions apply to the hire of any item including domes and any other piece of equipment. By booking our services you are in agreement and understand our terms and conditions.

1. CONTRACT OF HIRE

These terms form part of the hirer’s “contract of hire” with the Company. By signing the “contract of hire” the Hirer agrees to be bound by these terms.

2. BOOKING

Your booking is confirmed once you have submitted your booking form, your deposit has been received and we have issued you with a written acknowledgment of your booking.

3. PERIOD OF HIRE

The period of hire is the period which the dome or equipment is required to be ready and available for use. This is detailed in your booking form.

Set-up and set-down times will be confirmed with you the week prior to your booking via email and will be between 07:00-11:00am. Should you have a specific request for a time outside of this slot you must make this clear at the point of booking. We will do our best to accommodate requests but can not guarantee them due to multiple bookings in a day.

4. SITE

All bookings are subject to an agreement that the site is, a minimum of 3.7m in diameter, sufficiently level, and is reasonably firm ground, with access for set-up and that no drainage, electric cables or other services are buried beneath the surface or overhead. The hire charges do not include any making good or repairing of damage to site. The Hirer or a representative is requested to attend site to confirm the position in which the dome(s) or equipment are to be erected. Otherwise, the contract shall be deemed to have been completed once the Company has positioned the dome(s) or equipment as it sees fit.

5. ELECTRICITY

It is the Hirers responsibility to ensure there is a safe electric supply to the dome(s). PartyIgloos will take no responsibility with the delivery and distribution of power to the dome(s).

The dome(s) must be within 30m of the electric supply for the extension cable provided.

6. WIFI

For the Cinema option package Wi-Fi is required to connect the TV to streaming services such as Amazon Prime and Netflix. It is the Hirers responsibility to provide Wi-Fi within range of the dome(s).

7. PAYMENT

A deposit of £75.00 is payable on booking and the balance is due no later than 14 days before the period of hire commences. Payments can be made by BACS.
