Last Minute Apparel now offers an Insurance Option to protect you from financial loss in the event of accidental damage.

A minimum seamstress fee can cost anywhere between $15 - $100.

Our $10 Insurance Option covers you for most potential damages that occur on a night out. Simply select 'yes' to the Insurance Option on a product's listing.

Our Insurance Option covers damages such as:

  • Broken zips
  • Minor material splits
  • Small holes
  • Broken straps
  • Loose/lost buttons, jewels
  • Soft stains

It's important to note that the Insurance Option does not cover damages that ruin a garment. If a garment is beyond repair, the full RRP will be charged. The Insurance Option is strictly available to clients upon booking a garment prior to the event date.

Please do not alter our hire garments in any way. Alterations may include safety pins, stitching, or applying heavy holly wood tape. By self-altering a hire garment, the Insurance Option is voided, and you may be charged the RRP if a replacement garment is needed.

By selecting 'no' to the Insurance Option, you will be held liable for all damage fees that occur during the hire period, including but not limited to:

  • Any mending fees
  • Any dry cleaning costs
  • Missed hire bookings

If any damages occur, it is your responsibility to contact Last Minute Apparel immediately. Take images of the damage and include a brief description. The garment must still be returned on time. Last Minute Apparel will then assess the damages and charge appropriately.

Please be mindful of stamp ink, flicking back dirt, sitting on a dirty chair/floor, lipstick smears, red wine spillages, oil from food, and heaters.

Minor faults are nonrefundable.

Fake Tan

Do not apply fake tan while wearing a hire garment.

Last Minute Apparel recommends applying fake tan at least 1 night before an event and showering. This is due to the potential permanent stains fake tans can leave on the material. We can easily detect if a client has applied tan while wearing a hire garment, and this may result in multiple dry cleaning fees or the RRP.

Thank you for your understanding.
