Can I change my order after I’ve made my deposit?

We all change our minds. You can remove items from your order up to eight days prior to your event and add items up to 48 hours before your scheduled pickup or delivery.

When is the final payment due?

The remainder of your payment is due one week before your delivery and will be charged automatically to the card you used for your deposit unless otherwise noted.

How long can I keep the items?

  • Prices in the rental catalog are for a 24-hour period; <price> is charged for <additional time details>

Do you offer delivery?

Delivery from NYC is $250 one way and a three-hour time window is assigned so you know when to expect our arrival. There is a $1,500 rental minimum for NYC deliveries and <price> for deliveries outside of the NYC area. We deliver items to the Hamptons, Montauk, Hudson Valley, Connecticut and even as far as Morocco.

When is the delivery scheduled?

Deliveries are scheduled a week before your event and after your deposit has been received. We’ll reach out 48 hours before your delivery to let you know your three-hour time window and to confirm your address and order. If you’d like to schedule your delivery for a specific time, a $<price> fee applies.

What is included with delivery?

Full-service deliveries include delivery, set-up, breakdown and pickup.

Can I pick up items myself?

Pickups are recommended for smaller items only. Some items may not be available for pickup or require a certificate of insurance. Items can be picked up from our Brooklyn showroom Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, and an hour’s notice is required so we can have everything ready for your arrival. Be sure to come with helping hands and blankets to ensure items travel safely.

What happens on the day of my event?

If you’ve chosen to have your items delivered, our team will arrive within the pre-arranged time window for delivery and pickup.

What happens if I break or damage an item?

A replacement fee is charged for broken items; the cost is usually three times the rental price but depends on the piece. For stains and tears, you’ll be charged the cost of the cleaning or repair.

What if I need to cancel?

Orders can be cancelled up to 21 days prior to the event. After this time, a 50% fee is charged. Orders cancelled within seven days of the event incur the full charge.
