Weather and Cancellation Policy

WET WEATHER & HIGH WINDS POLICY

1. Scattered showers are fine, but if the weather forecasts 60% chance of heavy rain throughout the whole day, winds exceeding 30km per hour or temperatures over 38 degrees we may have to cancel the delivery for safety reasons. If you would like to make changes, there is no fee to cancel as long as you inform us before 12 NOON, two (2) days before the event.

2. Once we have confirmation to proceed with the booking, we have to pay our team for their hard work and therefore we require full payment regardless of use.  Our main safety concern is wind.  When winds go higher than approx. 30km per hour, inflatables become unsafe regardless of our tie-down methods.  If you are concerned, please call our office.

3. In the event of bad weather occurring during your booking, it will be at the company’s discretion to pack away the equipment. The full invoiced amount will be payable to the company.

4. In the event of forecasted bad weather, it is the customer’s responsibility to organise suitable shelter or provisions for the equipment. It suitable provisions are not made and the equipment can’t be used, the customer is liable for full payment.

HOW TO CANCEL

1. Cancellation must be done via email, except if your event is scheduled the next day, we only accept cancellations via SMS.

2. Any weather cancellations or change of time to your delivery MUST be made by 12 Noon, two (2) days before your event date . If no cancellations or change of date/time are made then we will proceed with the booking. Once the decision has been made to proceed with the booking, we will not be able to issue any refunds regardless of use. If you would like to change the date/times or cancel the booking, please reply to this email or call the office on 0406 161 959 before 12 noon, two (2) days before your event date.
