Alias Costume Rental offers two rental periods: Weekly (7 Days) or Production (6 Weeks.) We also offer a Memo Rental (48 hours). The Memo Rental is for FITTING USE ONLY. If the costumes are used during your shoot, you will be required to pay the Weekly Rental price. The rental period begins the day the costumes leave the premises. Unless paying by purchase order, rental must be paid in full at the time of rental. Additionally, we require a credit card number on file for the duration of your rental regardless of payment method.
Costumes not returned within the 48 hour Memo period will be considered a Weekly Rental and charged accordingly. The rental start date will remain the same. Memos taken on approval Thursday must be returned on Friday. We do not allow memos over the weekend.
For Weekly and Production Rentals, late fees will be charged if the costumes are not returned by the due date at a rate of 25% of rental cost for each week the costume is overdue.
The replacement value for each item is 20 times the rental price. The replacement value is to be paid in full to the Alias Costume Rental in case of loss, theft or damage as determined by Alias Costume Rental.
Costumes must be returned in the condition they were rented in. Please examine your rentals before leaving. Any pre-existing damages or stains will be noted on your receipt.
The rental price includes basic laundering, but costumes with stains, spills, or excessive dirt must be cleaned before they are returned. Garments returned excessively soiled will be considered damaged and will be charged at the discretion of Alias Costume Rental. All items must be returned on hangers they were rented upon.
Minor alterations (hems, waists, cuffs) are acceptable as long as the alteration does not damage the costume. Any costume that has been altered must be restored to its original measurements before it is returned. Alias Costume Rental reserves the right to charge a tailoring fee if any costume is returned altered. Alterations requiring cutting and dying of costumes is never allowed without written permission from Alias Costume Rental.
All official uniform rentals, including police, postal, and fireman, require a letter of responsibility signed by the production company and a certificate of insurance. Memo rentals on Police and Fireman uniforms are not allowed.
