How does the pricing work? How long do I get the items for?
Our rental rates are based on a 3 day or 72 hour period – from the day before your event to the day after. Extended rental rates are available; feel free to call us for pricing.

It is the client’s responsibility to inspect all rental items upon receiving them. Any missing or damaged items need to be reported immediately, before the event, to avoid any replacement fees. Notifying us at the time of return may result in replacement charges.

Payments: When do I pay?

What is your tent policy?
A nonrefundable 25% deposit on all tent and dance floors is required at the time of confirmation. An additional 25% cancellation fee will be applied to all tent and dance floors cancelled less than 3 days prior to the delivery date.

Make sure the property has a good spot to set the tent. Here are some questions we will need answered when booking a tent. Is it going on concrete or grass? Can we stake the tent? Is the ground even? What size tent do I need?

How do I light and decorate my tent?
If your event runs into the evening, you will want to make sure there is proper lighting in your tent. Options include: paper lanterns, café perimeter lighting, and chandeliers. We offer tent leg drapes, fabric liners and side walls for most of our tents.

Keep in mind, you will need to make sure you can get power to your tent. Either with a generator or you need to make sure the property has enough power for your event.

Can I cook in a tent?
While our tents are flameproof, they are not suitable for grilling or other forms of cooking. Licensed caterers can use equipment to keep food warm inside a tent. Any grilling or other cooking must be done outside the tent area.

What if my event ends after your working hours? Do you pick up at midnight?
Ideally, we would want to pick up the following day, but if you are in a venue or public place that requires your rentals to be picked up that night, we can make that happen. We charge an after hours fee. Please don’t hesitate to get a quote on that when placing your order.We also provide an after hours phone number for your event emergencies.

How do I set a table?

Is set up included in the rental rate?
Listed prices are rental only. All items come prepared and ready for your use, but it is your responsibility to arrange for set up. You can hire us to provide this extra service for you and we are happy to calculate a fee based on your needs.
