Send it Back Dirty

Send it Back Dirty

Planning an event or celebration can be stressful and time consuming. Once it’s all over, the last thing you want to worry about really is dealing with a ton of dirty plates, glasses and cutlery. With our “send it back dirty” option, you don’t have to.

How does it work?

When you place your order, you can tick a box to say that you would like to send your items back dirty. There is a cost – 25% of the hire price for those items – but what price not having to do the washing up in the morning?

When your event is over, all you need to do then is to scrape plates and bowls clean, empty liquids from glasses and place them all in the packing crates they were supplied in. We then collect the items, and our warehouse lads will finish the job by cleaning them professionally once they are back on site.

Is it just for crockery and cutlery?

You can request this service on other kinds of hire such as barbecue and chafing dish hire. Barbecues can be a nightmare to clean after a big event and paying for us to do it will make your life much easier. Likewise, catering equipment like gastro pans and chafing dishes can get very dirty from use.

The only product we do not charge send it back dirty on is for linen, as all linen has to be professionally cleaned once it’s returned anyway.

What happens if I don’t select “send it back dirty”?

If you choose not to use the “send it back dirty” service, that is fine. However, we expect all hire equipment without this service to be sent back in the same condition it was delivered in. There are some products like glasses that break easily when being cleaned so we would warn anyone to take extra precautions in doing that as breakages have to paid for at 10 x hire price.
