Is it too late to book a postal rental?
Note: This is a guide only.
Please be mindful that courier delays can be caused by a multitude of reasons such as but not limited to Covid19, weather, or regional public holidays. Once we have dispatched your order it is out of our control, we cannot get CourierPost to rush or speed up your delivery. You will need to contact CourierPost directly with your tracking number to see whether any alternatives are possible such as arranging a pick up directly from their depot.
We created this guide to give a better idea for last minute orders but we highly recommend booking garments at least one week in advance.
We aim for our garments to arrive at the very latest on the receive date, usually it arrives earlier.
If you're booking last minute please note that orders made after 12pm will be dispatched the next business day at earliest. Last minute orders are at your own risk, we do not provide refunds if you make a last minute order that doesn't allow enough time for your order to arrive.
Please also make sure you are able to return the dress on the return date stated above. If you are worried about meeting the deadline for the return date, we recommend booking a longer rental duration. We charge a late fee of $30 per day for garments returned late.
For all bookings made between 20th December 2022 - 9th January 2023 these will be classed as Holiday Bookings. Due to restricted courier services over the holiday period, bookings made during this time will be extended by default and the return date will be 9th January 2023. These rentals will also be sent in advance where possible.
All orders for post return must be handed over the counter at latest on the January 9th, all drop offs in the drop off box at latest January 9th.
*Late returns and fees apply as normal from 09/01/23
Postal orders close: Friday 16th December 2022 at 10pm
Auckland Pick Ups:
Last Day To Pick Up: Friday 23rd December 2022 at 5pm
Our usual terms & conditions and rental agreement apply as normal to these bookings.
By entering or using any part of “www.rabbitborrows.com”, you agree to be bound by this Rental Agreement. If you do not agree to any or all of the agreement, our services will not be available to you (the renter).
This Rental Agreement is a legal agreement between you (the renter) and Rabbit Borrows. The agreement was established by us to ensure both you (the renter) and Rabbit Borrows are covered if anything were to go wrong.
1 GARMENT WEAR ;
Once you have hired your garment for hire from Rabbit Borrows you are agreeing to our terms & conditions. Please note the garment is for single use only; the customer who purchased this garment is the only one able to wear this garment. Your garment is for use ONLY on the day you selected to hire when making your purchase.
2 PICK UPS/ DROP OFFS;
Rabbit Borrows does offer to pick up and drop off. To arrange a pick up please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
3 DRESS HIRE ARRIVAL TIME;
Usually dresses are hired over a weekend (Friday-Sunday). They get couriered back to us on a Monday which is an overnight courier so we receive them back from the girls who wore them the weekend before, on the Tuesday. We then wash these dresses (whether it be dry-clean overnight or hand wash). You item will be shipping either Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday morning on an overnight courier for you to receive your item on Thursday. We contract a third party organisation (Courier Post NZ) to process all of our shipping requirements.We always aim to post dresses 1-3 days before the date of your event.
Please note that their overnight courier system is not a 100% guarantee for overnight service. From our experience, they almost always deliver our lovely garments on time, but there are very rare occasions where there are delays. This can be due to their internal sorting errors, courier transport incidents such as car/plane delays and/or crashes, congestion in both roads or sky paths and/or weather delays. By agreeing to our rental agreement you exempt us from any liabilities due to these delays. If you would like to pursue legal action for a compensation, please contact Courier Post with your postal details, we are more than happy to assist you by providing to you any supporting evidence where necessary for your claim. However, we as a company will not seek compensation on behalf of you as our contract with them can create a conflict of interest if we directly take legal action against our contractors.
As per our refund policy, if you think that we have not done our duty by sending out the garment in a reasonable time frame to ensure it's delivery to you. Please email us with supporting evidence and we will of course uphold our agreement to the Consumers Guarantee Act by providing a full refund.
4 EXTENDED RENTAL;
Rabbit Borrows offers extended hire if you would like to purchase this for your holiday away/overseas. The cost of an extended hire will be the original hire fee multiplied by the number of weeks. If you're interested in an extended hire on a garment simply book out the dress for the week/s you are wanting it for.
Please return your garment in the prepaid postage bag we provided, by the end of the following business day (2pm). All rentals MUST be handed over the counter at your nearest post shop for it to be scanned. DO NOT put the return bag in the postal boxes - this delays the return process. Rabbit Borrows holds the right to charge you a late fee of $30 per day as an agreement violation if you do not hand your garment in the return bag to a NZ Post before 3pm on the next business day following your rental day. At the point where a garment is handed to NZ Post, the staff will scan the item to show that it has been handed in, we use the tracking details online as proof of return. The garment MUST be returned even if it is damaged to the point where it cannot be rented anymore (damage/replacement fees will also occur in this case).
