Within the Bassingham showroom, Nicola has a beautiful collection of hats and fascinators in a wide range of colours and styles. Hiring a hat for a special occasion such as a wedding, garden party or the races is a popular choice for those who may not often have the opportunity to wear the hat again. Prices for hiring may be found by clicking onto the images shown in the Occasions collection. The couture ranges may also be available for hire by special arrangement.
A delivery & collection service is available for 'Special Race Days', please contact Nicola for further information.
Returning customers receive a 10% discount on the standard hire charge.
Terms & Conditions
Price for hire range starts at £20 plus a returnable deposit. The full deposit will be the purchase price of the hat minus the hire charge. Hire duration is for five days (unless otherwise agreed). If the hat is not returned within the agreed period, an extra charge will be incurred as stated on the agreement. It may be possible to post hats for hire after receiving payment and signing of the contract by next day delivery. Postage is added to the hire charge. The hirer will be asked to pay a 20% deposit at the time of booking and the full deposit must be paid prior to collection or postage. If the hat is lost or damaged then the amount payable is the purchase price of the hat. The agreement states the value to replace the particular item if it is lost, stolen or damaged (including any dents, loss of decoration or water damage) which is the purchase price of the hat. The value must be paid to Nicola Sandys Millinery by the customer should this happen. Cancellation of the hire of the hat must be made no less than one week before the event in order for a refund to be issued. All hat boxes must be returned.
Whilst English weather is inevitable, care should be taken when wearing a hat/headpiece in the rain and should be kept under an umbrella at all times. All hats/headpieces are very vulnerable if subjected to rain.
Payments may be made using a debit & credit card in store and on line or by Paypal invoice
