Hiring props from One Curious Dream – FAQ’s
Where are you based?
The One Curious Dream prop hire studio is based in the city centre of Norwich, Norfolk – there are several car parks within walking distance with St Andrews being the closest.
Can I view your prop hire collection?
Once you have decided on which props and pretties you are interested in hiring, please let us know and we can arrange a viewing appointment. Please note that we only hold a small selection of our collection in the studio, and therefore we will need confirmation from you when booking your appointment of which items you would like to view so we can ensure they are on site. Appointments are available Monday-Friday between 8am and 6.30pm and we also hold a viewing weekend each month. We work on an appointment only basis so get in touch to check availability.
If you feel you need some support with designing your wedding decor scheme, we offer a design and styling service, more details of which can be found here: Wedding design and styling
How do I make a booking?
Let us know which props you are interested in hiring along with the date and venue for your wedding. We will check availability for you and get the booking paperwork and deposit invoice organised from there. Payment is made by BACS transfer into our business bank account.
In order to secure your booking, our payment terms are as follows:
Bookings under £50: Full payment (which is non-refundable) for bookings up to the value of £50.
Bookings over £50 – Non-refundable deposit of 50% of total booking amount or £50 (whichever is greater) with the balance payable 30 days prior to your wedding.
Once your deposit payment has been received, these props will not be available for other couples to hire on your date. Therefore, we are unable to remove of props from your booking once a deposit payment has been made but are happy for you to add additional items (subject to availability) if required.
Damage Deposit and Handover Appointments
A £100 cash Damage Deposit is payable at the check-out handover appointment.
A 15 minute check out / check in appointment will be organised with one of our team either at our studio or your venue. All hired goods will be inspected on the check out (when we hand the props over to you) and you will be asked to sign a document confirming the satisfactory condition and quantity of each item. On the check in appointment (where we receive the props back into our care) each item will be inspected for damage and in cases where this is found (or loss occurs) the replacement cost outlined on your Engagement Letter will be deducted from your damage deposit. Any damage or loss that exceeds the replacement cost outlined in your Engagement Letter will be invoiced and becomes payable within 7 days of issue.
Please note that the replacement fee is payable even in cases where individual parts or pieces of our garden games are lost or damaged as these will no longer be hireable to another party as a complete set. Therefore, we recommend you nominate a designated person to make a final check that all pieces (including counters, blocks, dice etc) are present before your check in handover appointment.
Delivery & collection
We offer a delivery and collection service for bookings over £100. All mileage is charged from/to our hire studio (NR3 2AD) and your venue at 50p per mile and is invoiced as per the google maps calculation. We happily accept bookings under £100, however, we are unable to offer delivery /collection and therefore these will need to be collected and returned to our prop hire studio.
If we are making a collection from your venue, all items must be packed in the One Curious Dream packaging provided and ready for collection at the agreed time. We reserve the right to deduct a fee from your damage deposit in the event that our props are not packaged appropriately and ready for collection at the agreed time.
How long is the hire period for?
In most cases, this is 72 hours allowing a day for drop off / set up (if appropriate), the hire day itself, followed by the collection day.
