Do you deliver?

No, this is a self pick up rental only. This allows us to focus on building unique items and keeps costs down so we can provide a budget friendly option. Most of our items fit in a pick up truck.

If an item is too large for a pick up truck this will be noted in the description.

To pick up large items such as backdrops, you will need straps to secure them and at least two people to load.

Our location is near 151st and Black Bob in Olathe, KS.

What is the booking period?

Your booking is for a weekend Friday-Monday.  Items can be picked up Friday.  Items need to be returned at the latest by Monday at 3 pm.

Pick ups can be between 9 AM and 3 PM on Friday (or Thursday if you selected early pick up $20 fee applies).

Return can be Saturday 8 AM-3 PM
Sunday – this is my day for worship and family. Drop off on this day can only be done rarely and when arranged previously.
Monday- 8 AM-3 PM

Do you load the items into our trucks?

No, this is SELF-pick up. Please ensure you have two capable lifters for all but small items.

Why can’t I select Saturday?

Yes, there is a $20 late return fee. You can add this option on at check out.

My event is a weekday, can I rent an item during the week?

We are a small business with just two of us and a limited inventory. We need time to be able to make sure all items are in good condition after each rental. Items can be picked up early (Thursday) or returned late (Tuesday) and this accommodates most weekday rentals. 

Can I see the items in Person?

Unfortunately, no. We are happy to provide more pictures of an item, and answer questions, but scheduling viewings is hard to do with items being rented out. Items will be in the same condition as shown in photos online.
