How much do you charge for delivery is one of the most common questions we receive. Every event is unique and therefore our service fees vary per order. Let us explain why;
Event uniqueness includes the items selected, their quantities, the event location/s, available access options, bump in & out timeframes and / or venue restrictions and installation of products where applicable. In summary, the labour, time, vehicle and fuel requirements will vary.
In calculating our fees for delivery & retrieval services we consider all of the above elements, which also includes the time needed for prepping, loading, travelling to your event, unloading (possible wait times) and again in reverse. We find most events we service range anywhere from 4 to 30 hours. Our average hire is between 16-20 hours of service time (calculated with 2 people). The majority of our event deliveries and retrievals take place between Friday & Monday.
Whilst we calculate the individual requirements per order, please see below for our base level (minimum starting) fees per listed area;
Central Coast $100
Newcastle & Lower Hunter Valley $200
Here at BTS we endeavour to keep our service fees as minimal as possible and do not aim to generate profit. Our fees are calculated using a cost recovery model and we are proud of the quality products we have within our hire range and the services we offer.
* The prices of our hire items do not include delivery and retrieval fees or fees involved with styling your event. The exception is our Ceremony Packages which is inclusive of delivery, setup and pack-down (Central Coast only).
