Please read these terms and conditions carefully before placing an order.

General – Rental Agreement

The agreement you have with Courtney’s Closet is a rental agreement. This means that your right to the products on our page are subject to the rental agreement which are specified in your order including the dates for the rental, the price and the date by which the goods are due to be returned.

Upon processing an order we will require a credit or debit card charge of the rental fee immediately. The rental fee does not include postage costs, these will be found on the checkout page ($15 including return courier bag).  

A refund may occur on the obligations that the dress you had booked becomes damaged from a previous customer, meaning your rental will no longer go ahead. I will offer you another garment as a replacement or a refund if preferred. If a refund occurs you will lose your postal cost as this covers the refund fee on my end.

Courtney’s Closet has a strict no cancellations policy so please ensure you are certain about your order. Should there be an issue or error in your order it is your obligation to contact myself (Shawna) immediately to change any details. We are sorry but we do not refund or credit if an item does not fit you. We allow try on's for our Local customers. Postal try ons are available on occasions and can be arranged through Shawna directly. If you are unsure if an item will fit you we suggest you go on the brands website to see the size guide for measurements or contact Shawna for help and guidance. Courtney's Closet is happy to send a ‘Backup’ outfit on request if there is time.

If you have an item booked and decide to cancel the order at any time a store credit is applicable. Store credits are valid for 6 months. 


If your event is cancelled, postponed or unable to be picked up from the Matamata HQ due to a change in COVID alert levels your rental will be credited to you under the booking system. To use the credit please contact Shawna directly to arrange. The store credit will need to be used within 6 months. No refunds will be given over this period. 

Your obligations

If you require the garment to be posted you must provide a physical address where you are able to physically accept the parcel.

Upon confirmation of the products you agree to treat the garment with care so that there is no damage to the product.

Please do not wash any of our garments as most of them require dry-cleaning.

You are hereby financially liable for loss, destruction or damage to the goods due to theft, disappearance, fire, major stains, rips or any other cause in which the goods are rendered unusable for further hireage.

Last minute orders placed on Friday for Saturday are an exception to this. If you are planning on picking up an item you may book it on the same day you wish to wear the item, however it is helpful to message Shawna prior to booking to eliminate any delays.

If we have not received the products back two working days after the rental date we reserve the right to charge a late fee of $25.
