FAQ
HOW DOES IT WORK?

Hiring from Seed1 is really simple. Fill out out our booking form to let us know which pieces of equipment you would like to hire. We will then send you an invoice. Once payment is received, your booking will be confirmed. You then just need to collect the items from Seed1 in Dean Street within the agreed time frame and then return it to us when you are finished.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

It depends on how much you would like to hire. Our prices are set to be as accessible and affordable as possible. If you download our booking form, you can play around with quantities to see what it would cost you. If you have any concerns about the cost, please email us at partyhire@seed1.co.uk and we'll do our best to help you.

HOW LONG CAN I HIRE FOR?

Our standard rates are for a 24-hour period (10am to 10am). If you need to hire a kit for longer than this, please let us know when emailing over your booking form and we will try to accommodate you.

WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PLACE SETTINGs I CAN HIRE?

We have around 30 of each of our themed sets and 60 in our Ikea range. You can of course also mix and match sets - Under The Sea & Narwhals go pretty well together, as do Princesses and Mermaids, although it's totally up to you and any combination is possible so if you wanted to mix Dinosaurs with The Circus, that's totally fine too!

HOW DO I PAY?

Once we have received your booking form and confirmed availability for the requested items, we will send you an invoice with details of how to pay us via PayPal.

WHY IS THERE AN ADDITIONAL DEPOSIT?

In order to keep costs low, we need to make sure any additional costs to us are covered. We ask hirers to hand-wash and dry all the plates, cups, bowls and cutlery hired from us but sometimes it gets forgotten. The deposit helps us to cover the additional cost of the kit being properly cleaned and dried by our staff. It also allows for any missing or damaged items that aren't returned. In the event we do need to retain some or all of your deposit, we will of course discuss this with you in the first instance.

HOW DO I GET MY DEPOSIT BACK?

Once your kit has been returned and checked, and providing nothing is missing or damaged, we will refund your deposit in full via Paypal.

WHY SHOULD I HIRE FROM YOU?

Plastic pollution is a huge issue right now and we want to make sustainable choices more accessible for everyone.

By hiring our partyware and decorations, you are reducing the amount of waste created and helping to protect our environment.

WHAT IS IT MADE OF?

We have two kinds of partyware available for hire. The themed kits are made of bamboo and the plain ones are plastic.

This kind of plastic isn't bad - these kits will be used hundreds of times and save lots of single-use plastic from ending up in landfill or our waterways.

IS IT HYGIENIC?

Yes! We ask hirers to hand-wash and thoroughly dry all the tableware that is hired. We then sanitise this when it is returned and before it goes out to the next hirer. All the linen and bunting is also washed between hires to ensure you are receiving our items in the best possible condition.
