If I reserve 20 tables, and then end up only needing 15, can I cancel those 5 tables and get a refund?

  • No.  According to our reservation policy, once an order is placed we do not accept cancellations, and we do not refund for unused items.  The reason behind this is, once you have this order placed we tell anyone else looking for those items they are not available.  If another customer wanted to use the same items on that date, they would not be able to because you have them held.  If you decide you don’t need the items, we would lose the rental on your item as well as the potential rental from the other customer who could have used it.
  • If you are between guest counts, or you just aren’t sure, start with the lower/definite number and then add to the order once your numbers firm up.  We can keep adding to your order as long as we have the items available.


Do your prices include set up of the tables and chairs?

  • No.  Prices for tables and chairs are for the item only.  Our delivery rates are only for dropping off items in an organized manner.  Most set up and break down is handled by the caterer.  If that is not an option for you, and you really need us to set up your items, we charge an additional fee.  Those fees are determined by the number of items, the time of year, and location.


I don’t know how many boxes of sugar I need for the cotton candy machine.  If I don’t use a box, can I return it?

  • Yes!  Any unopened or unused merchandise can be returned and refunded at full price.  This includes concession merchandise, like cotton candy, cones, popcorn, syrups, etc., as well as construction merchandise, like blades, buffing pads, sand paper, and nails.


Is there anyone there who can load this piece of equipment for me?

  • Yes!  We have lots of strong men and women to help load and unload party and construction equipment.  Meet our team!


I’ve broken one of my glasses, how much will that cost me?

  • Fees for breakages will vary depending on which item it is.  Most glasses will be between $3-6 to replace, plates between $10-15, and linens between $30-40.   Broken construction equipment will be charged based off the cost of parts.


What size tent do I need?

  • Click here!  We’ve broken down how we calculate tent sizes in this inspiration post.


I rented a floor buffer yesterday, but it’s really not what I need.  I didn’t use it, but I kept it for a day.  Can I get a refund?

  • No.  Once a piece of equipment has left our store, that piece of equipment is considered rented and used.  Also, that piece of equipment while it is rented to you is unavailable to anyone else who needed it.
  • We are charging for time out of the store, not the amount of time the machine is used.


I am sending someone to pick up the equipment for me, how does that work?

  • We will require identification on any person who physically takes the equipment, as well as the person who is financially responsible for the equipment.
    • The person financially responsible is also the one who is responsible for any damages or missing items.
  • Give us a call to reserve and prepay for the equipment, as well as let us know who will be stopping by to pick up.  Let the person picking up know they will need to provide us with an ID.


I have a construction business, can I open a line of credit with you?

  • Yes!  We have a credit application available for business who would like to open a line of credit with us.  Terms are Net 30, and we do require references as well as current credit information.
