Do I need to clean these items before they are returned from hire
We know that nobody likes cleaning up tableware after a big event or occasion. However, it's less well known that it's during cleaning when most pieces of tableware and serving hire go missing.
Because of this, we have made it compulsory for all tableware and serving items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All we ask is that before packing up items ready for collection, the customer ensures all food debris has been removed.
