We love our rentals being used outdoors. However, we must have a plan in case of rain. The backup rain plan is because we do not EVER want to have to charge our clients for rain or water damage to our vintage rentals. A backup rain plan must be established prior to the date of the event, and a rain call must be made prior to LBL rentals & Designers’ scheduled arrival. Rentals may never be left outside overnight.
The Client assumes all responsibility for any damages that occur to rental items at their event and agrees to pay the pre-established replacement value in order to replace the damaged item. If a spill of any kind can be professionally cleaned, the client will only be charged the professional cleaning fee. Damages include, but are not limited to cigarette or cigar smell, spills, water damage, chips, cracks, and tears. La Bella Luce will send an invoice for any damage, cleaning, or repair fees within seven business days of the event. The client has the option to submit the balance of the invoice via the accepted method of choice. The credit card on file will be billed if no alternate method of payment is chosen.
STYLED SHOOTS & WEDDING SHOWS
We love participating in styled shoots & wedding shows. Due to the high demand for both, we do require a minimum fee.
