Thank you for considering the use of our services! Outlined below are useful things that you will need to know prior to booking our services. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to get in touch!

Outline of our Fees

  • Booking Deposit: A payment of 20% of the total booking cost (not including bond) is required within 3 days from issue date on the booking invoice. This will secure the items requested for exclusive use on the date requested
  • Cancellations with less than 10 days notice will forfeit their booking deposit.
  • If a cancellation occurs for any reason, we will retain a $30 booking fee. This fee covers the administration requirements for every booking, specifically the time taken to process bookings, payments, quotes, all correspondence, as well as the reservation of requested items and loss of potential business.
  • Refundable bond: This is additional to the cost of the hire item/s. Bookings up to $100 will require a bond of $75, bookings up to $200 will require a bond of $100, bookings up to $300 will require a bond of $125.For large community/public events or bookings exceeding $300 bonds will be quoted at the time of booking. Bonds are refunded within 1-3 workings days following the booking date. This is subject to all hire items being returned in their entirety and in the same clean and functional condition as they were provided by Happy Days Party Hire. We clean and check every item before it is released for hire use. If equipment is lost, broken, not working, or inconsiderately dirty the hire bond will be withheld.
  • Hire item cost: We take great pride in keeping our equipment in great condition, as well as providing a high standard of service. Therefore the cost to hire out equipment covers everything required for us to ensure clean and safe equipment arrives (and is collected from) your events on time. Items are stored off site so they have to be packed the day before, set up, wiped with sanitising solution before use, then collected, thoroughly cleaned, and then taken back to be unpacked and returned to storage - it's quite a process!

*We require full payment to be made no less than 4 days prior to the booking date.

If bookings are cancelled with more than 10 days’ notice, we refund (but retain the $30 booking fee). Cancellations with less than 10 days’ notice will forfeit the full booking deposit.

Delivery/Collection Service

We are a husband - wife team managing all bookings through the weekends. Due to worsening Auckland traffic we are finding it increasingly difficult to reach distances further than 30km away from our base in East Tamaki. For this reason we have set our delivery radius limit to 30km.

It takes 4 trips to deliver and collect to/from an event. Delivery charges are calculated on a per/km basis. You can do a quick check by using Google Maps to look up the distance of your delivery address from East Tamaki. Costs are outlined below.

  • Delivery is free within 15km, thereafter:
  • 15-20km distance is $30
  • 20-25km distance is $40
  • 25-30km distance is $50

*these costs include set up and pack down of hire equipment if time allows on the day.
