Responsibility for equipment remains with the customer from the time of delivery to the time of return. Please be sure equipment is secured when not in use and protected from weather. Tables and chairs should be broken-down and stacked ready for pickup. All china, silver, glassware, etc. should be rinsed food-free and repacked in the same containers in which they were received. Linens should be refuse-free and dry to prevent staining and mildew. Laundry bags are provided with linen orders; please return them in those containers.

What happens if items are missing after the event?
The pickup staff will count the rental items on-site at your request to verify you are returning everything. We do charge for missing items not covered by the Equipment Protection Plan.
