1. Products and Quality
Balloonbay only use the very best professional materials to ensure the best quality, we do not use decorations or balloons supplied by our clients.

11" latex helium balloons float for an average time of 12-18 hours (depending on environmental conditions and handling), should you require your latex balloons last longer please let us know, so we can pre-treat them with Hi-Float which will enable your balloons float for days instead of hours, small fee applicable.
Please be aware heat, cold and static could reduce float times or even burst your balloons.
All balloons supplied on "DATE OF EVENT" are intended to last for that event, unless otherwise agreed & clearly stated on your order form.
Client understands that some decor items may be affected by temperature and humidity and that Balloonbay cannot be held responsible for the decor in uncontrolled climate, such as rain or extreme heat and/or unforeseen acts of nature. In that case, Balloonbay has the option of making changes to the decor in the best interest of Client. We NEVER guarantee perfect results with balloon decor outdoors. However, we further state that we will do everything in our power to make sure the decor will hold up by using the BEST quality of balloons.

5. On the Day & Access to Your Venue
Balloon decorating is very time consuming, where possible we try to bring as much of the job already made up to save time at the venue, but larger orders, such as arches, etc require us to construct your balloon decor at the venue. It is essential that you've hired the venue for adequate time before your event to allow us to complete our work, this will be discussed with you at the time of booking. We also require a contact name and telephone number for the keyholder, should we need to make access arrangements with them. In the rare event of your venue not being accessible at the times pre arranged we will not be held responsible for any problems arising from this and will move onto our next booking.
Once displayed, we do not recommend relocating any displays we create. We will always state arrival time on your order form, it is the clients responsibility to ensure this is arranged. Where venue's are closed/not ready we are not responsible for any incomplete decor.
Once your booking is confirmed your order form will clearly state 'minimum time required on site', please ensure your venue staff are fully aware of this and do not put your event at risk of delay. In the unlikely event this happens, no refund will be available. For health & safety reasons it is important that the venue allows undisturbed working space and power supply for full working time on site. Please inform venue staff of our requirements.
6. Hire of Equipment
Some of our balloon displays require a hire of equipment. Hire these equipment require a safety deposit. 66% of the deposit is refunded to you on their safe return after inspection. Any lost or damaged equipment will be charged for and safety deposit will not be refunded. Unless specified in your booking agreement, it is the customer's responsibility to return all hire equipment to Balloonbay. All hired goods must be returned within 7 calendar days, should this not be met a daily charge will apply (a daily hire charge of £5 will be deducted from your security deposit up to a maximum of 14 days after your event). Where Hire equipment is not returned more than 14 days after your event, you will loose ALL of your security deposits from all services hired. Where hire equipment is left at the venue overnight, customer is still liable at all times. Collection may be possible, however, this must be booked in advance and will incur a charge depending on the mileage.
8. Health & Safety
