Example:

Lender has agreed to receive 40% of the hire price.

RRP: $899

Hire price: $189

Dry cleaning: $18

$189 - $18 = $171

$171 - 40 % = $68.40

Lender receives $68.40 each time their garment is hired

The Lender is required to pay for any alternations Goldie’s sees fit for their garment/s to ensure it meets the Goldie’s - Designer Dress Hire standard before it is accepted into the Lenders program.

Once the exchange has been made, Goldie’s will cover any future costs of garment/s to be dry cleaned or altered. 

The Lender is able to borrow their garment/s whenever they please (granted the garment isn’t already hired by another customer). The Lender agrees to have the garment dry cleaned or pay Goldie's the dry cleaning bill when returning the dress.

Should the Lender require their garment to be shipped, the Lender must pay for shipping costs. Lenders are able to pickup/drop off their garment to borrow from Goldie’s store free of charge.
