Rating with 5 out of 5 possible stars Eventura GbR for Möbel Auf- und Abbau

The most important thing in advance, the staff we had on the event was good to very good. And that's the most important thing. Furthermore, the communication with the office, whether in writing or by telephone, was very pleasing. The slightly higher prices than the competition were justified by the quality of the staff. As a conclusion: two thumbs up. (5 stars on 07.08.2018)

Simple & fair terms of payment

1) Invoice after service for all EU customers
For national customers: No upfront payment, instead we send you an invoice after your event that is due within 7 days.
For international customers: You pay upfront because an international dunning process would incur too much cost for us.

2) Further payment methods upon request
Upon request you can also pay with debit or credit card. We do not charge fees for this.

3) Exemption of VAT when possible
Foreign clients can be exempted from VAT if they declare their VAT-ID.

4) Fair cancellation conditions
After your booking, our employees receive a labor contract, which guarantees respective wages for a certain work period. In case you must cancel your request, we will strive to place the personnel with another client (e.g. on the same fair).

Cancellation fees are as follows:
80 % of the agreed upon price, if the hired personnel cannot be placed with another client.
30 % of the agreed upon price, if the hired personnel can be placed with another client.
