If you are to wash up yourself, please note the items are HAND WASH only due to the age and delicacy.

We are happy to for you to collect or we can deliver. We deliver usually up to two days before your event. We are happy to deliver within the Merseyside area free of charge.

When the goods are delivered to the customer, the customer shall inspect the goods and sign My Vintage Crockery’s delivery note. In the event of any shortage or damage, the customer shall note this on the delivery note at the time of collection or delivery. If the customer fails to do this, the goods will be deemed to have been collected/delivered in a clean and undamaged condition.

If there is no one available to check the items, again the items will be deemed to have been collected/ delivered in a clean and undamaged condition.

When My Vintage Crockery collects the crockery, it should be properly packed as found. If My Vintage Crockery feels the crockery is not safe for transit and has to re-pack the crockery, this will incur additional charges. This will be charged at 10% of the total cost of hire.
