Reservations/Payment Policy

Under The Tent Party Rentals requires a 50% non-refundable deposit to reserve any equipment for your event. This deposit will be applied towards the final balance. The remaining balance must be paid in full 10 days prior to the event setup date, as determined by Under The Tent Party Rentals LLC. In the case of reservations made within 10 days of the event date, full payment is required at the time of booking. For reservations under $250, full payment is required at the time of booking.

 

Please note, failure to pay the final balance on time will result in the termination of your scheduled event and the loss of your 50% deposit. Final balances must be received by Under The Tent Party Rentals LLC no later than 5 pm EST on the start of the 8th day out from your setup day.

 

Please be aware that weather can be unpredictable, and unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds due to weather cancellations. Inclement weather is a risk that comes with having an outdoor event. However, we will do our best to work with you and offer alternative options if your event is cancelled by us due to inclement weather.

Set Up Date Change

Please ensure that you mark the location for your tent layout at least two days before the scheduled delivery date. In certain circumstances, such as unfavorable weather or other uncontrollable factors, we may need to deliver your rentals earlier than anticipated. Having your tent location marked in advance will assist us, even if you are not present at the time of delivery. 

 

Just to clarify, your booking start date is simply an indication of when your event is scheduled to begin. It's important to note that this date is not a guarantee for us to set up your rentals. We always try our best to set up all events the day before, but occasionally, we may need to set up a day or two in advance. However, we do offer a premium service for an additional cost that ensures your rentals are set up on the date and time of your choosing.

Hanging Decorations On Tents, Chairs and Tables

Tape, glue, pins, nails, or staples shall not be used to hang items or decorations on our tent material or any other rental items. Any plans to hang decorations using our rentals have to be approved by Under The Tent Party Rentals management. Any evidence of these items used on our tent will result in a $250 charge per occurrence.

Animal Droppings / Yard Trash

Please ensure that the rental area for your tent is free of animal droppings and trash. We may charge $25 for each animal dropping we have to pick up and dispose of to set up our tents and equipment.

Clean Return Of Rentals

Please ensure that all rentals are returned in the same condition they were received. This includes being clean and stored properly. Chairs should be neatly stacked on the dollies that were provided during delivery. Failure to return the rentals in a clean and proper manner may result in the loss of your security deposit.  

Pick Ups / Drop Off Hours

Customers who wish to pick up and return their items must first obtain approval from our staff. Our staff will set up a specific time window for each customer to pick up and drop off their items. It is important to return the items within this time window, as failure to do so will result in a 100% rebooking fee per day until the issue is resolved with Under The Party Rentals LLC management. If the items are not returned even after the deadline, Under The Tent Party Rentals LLC reserves the right to charge the full price for the unreturned items.

 

Delivery, Acceptance, and Return of Equipment

Under The Tent Party Rentals will install equipment within our work schedule in consideration of your event start time. Under The Tent Party Rentals will provide a tentative delivery time the week before and/or the week of your event and the schedule adjustments may be made at the discretion of the Under The Tent Party Rentals management team. Tents will not be set up or taken down in adverse weather conditions i.e. heavy rain, hail, lightning, snow, high winds, etc.

Call 811 Before Your Event

To securely anchor our tents, we use stakes that are 36-40 inches long. To avoid any underground hazards, we urge our customers to call 811 and have them come out to mark underground utilities. In case any customer fails to do so, there is a risk of us hitting something we weren't aware of. Therefore, the customer is solely responsible for any damage caused to underground objects, and we are not liable for any such incidents.

 

Bad Weather Set up/removal

Under The Tent Party Rentals reserves the right to determine whether weather conditions are suitable for tent setup and removal. In certain situations, tent installation may be delayed due to imminent weather that poses a significant risk to the product.

Site prep of event location

Property of tent installation must be prepared before the arrival of Under The Tent Party Rentals; including lawn preparation, tree trimming, pets, animal feces removal, and road clearance to the construction site.

Stacked Folding Chair Policy

Please ensure that if Under The Tent Party Rentals provides you with chairs stacked on a rolling dolly, you restack the chairs on the same dolly in the same way when returning them. Failure to do so will result in a service fee of $50 per dolly stacked. 

Completion Of Setup

After the equipment setup is complete, it is the client's responsibility to inspect the equipment for any defects. If the client finds any defect, they must notify Under The Tent Party Rentals in writing within the same time. Otherwise, the client will be considered to have accepted the equipment in its received condition. The client is also responsible for returning the equipment in good condition without any damage. If any equipment is lost, damaged or stolen, the client must pay for it based on the equipment's value at the time of loss.

Multiple Requests to Move Tents By Customer

Please ensure that the Client or an authorized representative of the client is present to authorize the placement of the tent. Once set up, tents will not be moved unless our team deems it necessary. If a tent is moved, additional labor charges will be assessed, which will be equal to 100% of the contracted Tent Rental/Installation price agreement.

 

Please note that we do not set up or remove tents in adverse weather conditions, and we also do not place them within 20 feet of underground or above-ground power lines.

 

Please be aware that some tents, such as structure tents, large frame tents, or pole tents 40’ wide or greater, may require heavy equipment such as semi-trailers or forklifts to construct. When flooring and tents are installed, it is considered a construction site, and on some occasions, heavy equipment may be used, such as forklifts.

 

Please note that all damage, including dirt, grass, sod, grounds, and plant life due to rental equipment, heavy equipment, and/or labor for the requirement of setup and teardown is not the responsibility of Under The Tent Party Rentals. To protect grounds from damage due to construction, preventive measures must be taken by the client before setup and disclosed to Under The Tent Party Rentals.

However, tents will not be set up or taken down in adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain, hail, lightning, snow, high winds, etc. It is at the discretion of Under The Tent Party Rentals to determine if weather conditions are ideal for set up and removal.

 

Additionally, Under The Tent Party Rentals reserves the right to remove or pick up any rental items before the contracted removal date, but only after the conclusion of your event.

Please note that there is an additional fee for long-distance manual hauling of the flooring to the event site (see cartage). It is important to keep in mind that flooring will not be installed or removed in adverse weather conditions, such as heavy rain, hail, lightning, snow, or high winds. Under The Tent Party Rentals reserves the right to determine whether weather conditions are suitable for set up and removal.

 

It is important to note that Under The Tent Party Rentals will not be held responsible for any damage done to the grass or lawn area, or underground utility/sprinkler lines under the flooring. The client will be responsible for any replacement grass, sod, or seed required.
