POSTAGE/SHIPPING

Our parcels are sent through NZ Post via overnight courier, which are trackable via the NZ Post website or app, (https://www.nzpost.co.nz or search NZPost on app store) until they reach their specified destination. This is a fast and secure postage system that we trust for the safe arrival and return of our garments.

After your item is fulfilled by us, and you receive the tracking number via email, it is your responsibility to ensure that the parcel arrives to you on time. We recommend tracking the package by turning on “delivery updates” on the parcel tracking page (https://www.nzpost.co.nz/tools/tracking/). You will then be emailed every time the parcel is scanned. If there are any delays in transit, we recommend calling Courier Post on 0800 268 743 or NZ Post on 0800 501 501. 

The Curvy Rental Boutique Ltd hereby reserves the right to deny refunds, or store credit, for items that have not arrived in time for your event. If your item has not arrived in time, we will investigate the tracking updates, and assess the situation in light of any unforeseeable events that could have delayed postage, or operational failures by NZ Post. Refunds and store credit are determined on a case-by-case basis, at the full discretion of The Curvy Rental Boutique.

If you place your order after 3PM Wednesday, we will not offer a refund for any items that have not arrived in time for your event. (Please do email us, and we can add a Saturday Courier ticket at your cost) 

In the rare scenario that the parcel has been lost by NZ Post we will do our best to send a replacement in time for your event, or offer a credit note or refund.

Please remember that postage is completely out of our control. As soon as it leaves our HQ, it is up to NZPost to get it to you on time and sometimes there are unfortunate delays but we do everything in our power to keep you updated on the situation. 

Please understand that due to Covid NZPost is still experiencing major delays. Postage can be extremely hit or miss so if you have the oppurtunity to pick up, please do.

 

PICK-UPS

We will send you a text as to when your order is ready to be picked up, Once you have received a message feel free to pop over anytime that day and grab your garment.  

Pick up orders are collected from:

228 West Tamaki Road

Glendowie, Auckland

1072

(Finished rentals are to be dropped back to this address also).

When returning your order you will need to ensure you drop it back to 

The Curvy Rental Boutique the next working day to your rental date. You will receive an info pamphlet with your order, indicating when your return date is.

If you don’t pick up/wear the rental you booked no refund nor store credit will be available.

 

 

RETURNING PRODUCT/GARMENT

After your event, all you need to do is return your item back to us. If it was a postal rental we require you to put the garment inside the provided pre-paid compostable courier bag addressed to us, and drop it over the counter (to activate tracking), at your nearest New Zealand Post Office by 4PM, the next business day to ensure it is received by the specified return date. You must make sure it is handed to a clerk and DO NOT PUT IN A POST BOX as this will not activate the tracking and can take up to 5 days to get back to me.  If it is put in a post box, you will be liable to pay a $30 fee. 

If you had a pickup rental please return it to the “drop off” slot along the white wall, next to the pick up cupboard by 6PM the following business day. It is absolutely crucial that the garment is returned on time, if not posted/returned the following business day a $25 late fee per day it is late will be charged. 

 

If it is returned late and forces us to cancel/refund another customers rental, you will be liable to pay for their refund. 

 

TRY-ONS – In store only!

Our in store try ons are by appointment only, we do not accept walk-ins. Try ons are based at our brand new beautiful store in the Eastern Bays of Auckland, Glendowie. The store address is accessible on both apple & google maps (simply search The Curvy Rental Boutique) and on the website. 

Try ons must be booked at least a few days in advance. Bookings are a duration of 45 mins and require a $15 non refundable booking fee. This fee is to prevent no shows, late cancellations and to compensate for our time and extra care put into every appointment. The $15 fee will go towards your rental if booked within 72 hours (3 days) after the appointment.  

Please read all of the try on info before booking. 

 

By booking a try on you are legally agreeing to our terms and conditions so they still 100% apply if you book/take away a garment from your appointment. 

 

We understand that at times you may need to bring your child however we are not child friendly/safe & would ask that children are kept in their pram to keep them safe and to avoid any damage to our garments or fixtures. Any damage done by a child will be charged to ‘you’ as the customer/renter.

If you have cancelled your appointment at least 3 days before your try then we are happy to organise a different dat/time or store credit.

 

OUR PREMISES/SHOP

We have created a beautiful space for you all to enjoy and utilise. Please be respectful of myself, the premises and the garments. 

Smoking/vaping anywhere on the premises is prohibited.

No dogs or pets allowed on the premises.

We have security cameras inside & outside for both you and The Curvy Rental Boutiques safety/security.

Any damage done by a ‘renter’ to our premises/building/fixtures will be liable to pay for the damages.

Any damage you make to your vehicle or person while on our property/ premises is not liable by The Curvy Rental Boutique Ltd

 

 

 

LATE OR NON-RETURNS

The Curvy Rental Boutique Ltd ensures the arrival of all rental garments to the customer, and this relies heavily on timely returns. Garments can be consistently booked out and by delaying the return of a garment it can potentially inconvenience the following rental customer.  No-one wants to be left without a gorgeous outfit for their event. If garments are not returned the following business day to their booking date, late fees will be charged at $25 a day for every day it is late, per garment  + the cost of any subsequent rentals that had to be canceled due to the late return.

In the case that a garment is not returned at all, due to it being stolen, lost or kept by the renter, the full Original Retail Value will be charged on top of the rental price that was paid and the total late fees. We will take strong legal action against you if this occurs. 

When you hire from The Curvy Rental Boutique Ltd, you are purchasing the right to wear one of our gorgeous garments during your agreed rental period, stated on your confirmation email and in our system. Only you, the renter, is able to wear the rented item and therefore it is not to be shared around to others while in your possession.

In the event that theft or malicious behaviour occurs and or late fees & damage fees are not paid we will use the services of baycorp, disputes tribunal or small claims court to recover any debts incurred by you the customer/renter. 

Any fees from retrieval services will be charged to you.

 

 

DAMAGED/SPOILED/REPLACEMENT GARMENT REQUIRED

Our biggest piece of advice, when wearing one of our garments, is to treat it as if it were your own. In the situation, a garment is damaged while in your care, the best thing to do is to not stress and notify us as soon as possible so we can come up with a quick solution. The matter must be emailed through to ella@thecurvyrentalboutique.co.nz or text me on 0274729843. We must be notified the day of or after your event,  not upon the return of the garment. 

If the garment arrives with damage you must let us know the day it arrived. 

If any damage occurs while the garment is in your care (as soon as it has been picked up or arrived to your address) even if you directly didn’t cause the damage, or are unsure how the damage occurred, you are still 100% to pay for any costs. It is your responsibility!! 

 

The following rules apply to damaged garments

  • If the garment requires excessive cleaning, extra cleaning products, scrubbing, soaking, more than 1 machine wash + extra drying time then an extra fee will be charged accordingly. We base this fee on time and product used. 
  • If the garment needs a minor repair, (e.g. zipper needs fixing, strap replacement or hem taken up as a result of damage), a fee will be charged at cost + 50% to cover my time and costs. 
  • If damage inflected by a renter affects another customer then the renter will be liable to pay any necessary costs to compensate. 
  • If the garment has been damaged to the point where we need to lower the rental price then the renter must pay the difference in price x6 to compensate as well as the repair cost.
  • If the damage to the garment means it cannot be used again for rent, 100% of the “Original Retail Value” (ORV) “Recommended Retail Price” (RRP) will be charged to you.  Discussions regarding the repayment of the garment can be sorted out in various ways so it is important to email or text to make the appropriate arrangements.  Once the garments RRP is paid for you will have the option to keep it, if the full RRP isn’t paid then you won’t have the option to keep it.  Note the ORV/RRP is found in the production description of each garment. You will receive an invoice for the replacement price of the garment or the cost of damages as determined by The Curvy Rental Boutique Limited. If you, the renter fails to pay these charges you authorise The Curvy Rental Boutique Limited to seek full compensation for the full RRP of the garment, the cost of any rentals we need to cancel, late fees of $25 per day that the garment is still not returned past its rental period end date. Methods can include but are not limited to debt collection agencies. Renters must themselves cover recoverable collection costs should we need to use debt collection.
  • The Curvy Rental Boutique Limited also reserves the legal right to take all steps necessary to receive the required compensation or fees required by breaking these terms & conditions. Such as legal action and debt collection.

We will only charge your payment method when you have not upheld your commitment to us as set forth in the Terms & Conditions/Rental Agreement.

 

 

 

WEAR AND CLEANING

Once you have worn your rental you are not required to clean it.  Just place into the prepared prepaid courier bag and return via NZ Post shop.  Please hand over the counter – DO NOT PLACE IN A POST BOX.  It must have the tracking code scanned. We take care of the cleaning and inspect the garment before it is ready for the next customer.  It is so important that you inform us of any damage or stain so we can deal with it correctly. 

 

If the garment requires more than just a wash – ie excessive cleaning product, soaking/scrubbing then an extra cleaning fee will be charged at our discretion. We base the fee around how much extra product was used, the time it took to clean etc. 

 

 

We want you to enjoy the garment but we also want the next customer to enjoy it as well so we therefore would hope you treat the garment with the utmost care.

Although you may not be the first to wear the garment we do everything we can to keep it in the most pristine condition. Please be mindful of embellished clutches or jewellery that may snag the material, and avoid spray perfumes or beauty sprays directly onto the material. Please do not attempt to fit into a dress that is not the right size for you and force zippers etc. We will always endeavour to mention dresses that are an ‘in between size’ or a smaller fit than what their label suggests.  

If a garment comes back extra dirty but does not require professional cleaning a cleaning fee of $20 will be charged for time, usage of cleaning supplies and inconvenience. 

 

CANCELLATION POLICY

Rental fees are non-refundable.

The following does not apply if your rental has already been sent or picked up. In this case, no credit or refunds are available. 

If you need to cancel your rental and you give us one week or more notice from your booking date, then we can happily issue you full store credit to be used within 6 months from date of cancellation. 

If you need to cancel your rental and you give us 2-6 days notice from your booking date, then we can happily issue you 50% store credit to be used within 6 months from date of cancellation.
