Do you own all the equipment on your website?

We are proud to say that we own and operate everything you see on our website; we even design and manufacture a lot of it ourselves!

Can we see the equipment before we book?

A picture speaks a thousand words, and you can see everything we have to offer on our website; however, if you really want to see our equipment before you book, you can make an appointment to see us. Our smaller items are nice and easy, but our inflatables take lots of time to set up, so there may be a small charge for this.

Will the equipment fit at my event?

There is always a solution! The measurements of each item are displayed readily on our website, but if you are unsure, just contact us, and we can give you more advice over the phone or complete a site visit.

Will you make regular contact once I have booked?

You can be assured that once you receive your confirmation email, your booking is safe! Our Bookings & Events team will reach out to you a couple of weeks before, a week in advance, and in the morning of your event to run through the final details and ensure there are no changes. Other than that, you will meet us at your delivery time, where your event will be filled with FUN. If you need to talk to us before your booking, we are here and ready to help.

When will you arrive at the event?

Every item takes different amounts of time to set up, but we always arrive with plenty of time ensuring that the equipment is ready to go ahead of your events start time. Our Logistics team will confirm these times with you prior to the event but we ask that you allow enough time for this prior to your event starting when booking.

What happens if it rains?

Sometimes the weather is not ready for your event. Cancellations made because of the weather are the Customer's responsibility and are only accepted when made within 24 hours before the booking start time, but no later than 2 hours before the booking start time. Any cancellations made outside this period are subject to the standard cancellation policy, all payments made in advance are subject to our standard cancellation and refund policy. but you can read our terms and conditions for more information.

Can I make a last-minute booking?

It is never too late to book with Kapiti Castles, our vast range of equipment allows us to provide entertainment for last minute events... even if that is only the day before. However during our peak season (October to March) we recommend bookings 3 months in advance.

Can I cancel my booking?

When you book with us, we allocate equipment and recourses to ensure that your event is Stress-Free, and our team work really hard behind the scenes to ensure this. Depending on when you cancel your event, they may be cancellation charges to cover our costs already laid out for your event. You can view our cancellation policy by visiting Terms & Conditions.

Can you set up on concrete, driveways, gravel or decking?

Most of the equipment is designed to be set up on a grassed area or indoors, but we understand that this may not always be possible. We recommend contacting us before you book to talk through your options and create the best solution.

Can I have the equipment for more than 24 hours?

We have standard pricing for 4, 6 and 24 hours available on our website, but you can have the equipment for as long as you want if it is a safe and secure area – We offer a long term hire price from just $12 per day.

What is the Kapiti Castles Damage Waiver, and why should I consider it?

The Kapiti Castles Damage Waiver is an optional service that provides coverage for accidental damage to rented equipment during your rental period. It offers peace of mind and helps protect you from unexpected costs. The waiver covers accidental damage incurred during normal use, excluding deliberate misuse, negligence, or theft. The cost is 5% of the total rental cost. While the Damage Waiver is optional, it is designed to provide added security and convenience for our customers. If you choose not to purchase it, you will be responsible for any damages to the rented equipment. In the event of accidental damage, you should promptly notify us, and we will assess the damage to determine if it qualifies for coverage under the waiver. The maximum coverage is capped at the repair or replacement cost of the damaged equipment, and it does not cover consequential damages, loss of use, or additional rental days. You can acknowledge your understanding of the waiver's terms during the booking process.
