Four Tips For Renting Like A Pro During The Holidays
Happy Holidays! It’s the happiest time of year; Gatherings are being planned and cheer is in the air. Want to know how you can rent event furniture- like a pro? Keep reading, to see our top 4 tips for renting during the holidays!
A Home for the Holidays
One of the major benefits of renting event furniture for your holiday gathering, is that your abode will be styled to the nines without the added need of storage. Plus, you and your guests will be able to share a meal over a beautiful tablescape- one that’s sure to be brought up at next year’s gathering!
Some items to consider renting for your holiday shindig:
- Charger plates
- Vintage mismatched china
- Banquet tables and Linens
- Specialty seating
- Dessert Stands
Be proactive- don’t wait for the new year (like most of your resolutions).
It’s a busy time of year- not just for holiday parties, but weddings too! This means availability is going faster than you can say santa. Early bird gets the worm, so we suggest submitting your wishlist at least two weeks before your event. Remember, items such as tents will need to be given more advance notice! Also, since it is busy season: we might experience higher call volumes, therefore we recommend submitting your requests either via email or our website’s wishlist form!
Be flexible with the delivery / pick up / drop off date!
This tip is crucial! We love the holidays and our staff does too. In celebration, we close up shop on certain holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc). This may result in certain days leading up to your holiday event being unavailable for delivery or pick up. To secure your preferred delivery time/day (etc), try to book your items well in advance! We understand that last-minute parties happen (can we get an invite?), so we’ll work with you to schedule a drop off / pick up time that’s convenient for you and fits within our holiday delivery schedule.
Understand the pick-up procedures!
While we allow some items to be picked up from our warehouse, there are a few ground rules to follow. We know… sorry! Prior to your pick up date, our office staff will go over all the things you’ll need to know and do! One thing to plan for: is having a covered vehicle, such as a SUV or compact car. This allows for whatever you’re picking up to be secured and not in danger of falling out onto a roadway. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions regarding our pick up procedures!
