Event rental questions
How far in advance should I reserve party rentals?
We will accept reservations for wedding receptions one year prior to your big day. For other large events, it’s a good idea to reserve approximately three to six months in advance.
How do I make a reservation?
Call our office at 617-980-6400 . One of our Event Consultants will verify availability, pricing, and delivery instructions.
Is a deposit required?
Yes. A 50% deposit is required and a credit card to have on file.
Can I make changes to my order without being penalized?
Of course! We recognize that guest counts are likely to fluctuate as the event date approaches. We encourage you to make a “best guess” estimate when placing your original reservation and make adjustments as you become aware. Final changes should be made a minimum of 14 business days prior to the delivery date. Within one business day of the delivery date, additions are subject to a 15% surcharge, and deletions or cancellations will be charged at full price.
Do you offer customer pick up?
Yes. Customer pick-up is only available on certain items. All orders must meet a $ 300.00 minimum (not including delivery fee).
What is the delivery charge?
Delivery fees start at $100 and are based on distance from our warehouse and difficulty of delivery (multiple levels, elevator access, distance from truck parking to event location, etc.)
What time will my deliveries arrive?
Delivery schedules are not completed until one business day prior to the delivery date. Unfortunately, late changes to existing orders and other unexpected events such as traffic and bad weather can cause delays or a shuffling of the delivery schedule. You may call our store at any time on the day of delivery and we will make a sincere effort to estimate the time of our arrival.
Does your delivery fee include set up?
No. Set Up is an additional fee.
What happens if we damage a piece of rental equipment while it is in our possession?
Do I get my money back if I do not use the rental items?
Unfortunately, no. Once our equipment leaves the warehouse we are not able to rent the items to other customers. Therefore, once the items are in your possession, you must pay for them.
Can I make payment plans on my account for event rentals?
Your rentals must exceed $ 1000.00 for the payment plan option.
What information do I need to rent items?
License and payment information.
