Q: What is the delivery and setup fee?
A: Delivery fees are based on distance from our shop as well as other factors such as amount of items rented, distance items must be hand carried to setup location and availability of vendor parking. Fee includes delivery, setup, as well as breakdown and pickup of the rented items. We are pretty flexible with set-up either the afternoon before after 4:00 pm or the day of the event, if delivery schedule will allow. Please let us know what your needs are!
Q: How long does event set-up take?
A: Please be aware that our tables are heavy and we have to transport them with the legs detached and have to assemble them onsite. Depending upon how many tables you need, this time will vary and you will need to factor this into your plans to allow us enough time to set up for your event.
Q: Can I pick up the rented items and avoid the delivery fee?
A: No, all items are delivered by Penn Rustics Rentals to your event venue.
Q: Are there any other fees?
A: If your venue requires the use of an elevator, stairs, or we have to transport the items an excessive distance from our truck to the event location, there will be a fee to cover the additional time.
We ask that our items are left on site in the same place and condition as we originally delivered them. Please clear tables and benches by the scheduled pickup times. If the pick up crew must spend additional time prepping for removal, additional charges will apply.
Q: Can your tables, benches, etc. be used outdoors?

Q: What happens if items are missing or damaged after the event?
A: You are responsible for all items rented. We will bill you for any damages or missing items. We require a credit card on file with your signed contract to cover the cost of any lost or damaged items. We always alert clients prior to charging the credit card on file.
