Do you deliver?
      We do offer delivery and/or pickup services on most orders for an additional fee. Delivery
      is for drop-off service only. Setup is not included with delivery, but offered for additional cost. Rates depend on geographical location.
If rental items are to be delivered and/or pickup during non-business hours, including nights after 5:00pm,
      or Sunday, additional charges will apply.
Customer must be present for all deliveries.
      Please call the
 office for delivery rates.

Do you offer set-up and break down Services?
      We do offer Set-up and break down services on most of our rental items,
      please call the office for a quote. Table setup is $1.00each and Chair setup is .50 cents each.

Do I have to wash the dishes before I return them?
      Some-what.  All china, flatware, and glassware must be returned free of all food
      and/or liquid. We ask that all plates are scraped to remove as much as possible, or cleaning fees will be charged.

Do I need to wash linens before I return them?
      No.  When it comes to linens all we ask is that you shake linens free of all food and decor
      and we will take care of the rest.  We do
recommend that if the linens get wet, from
      water or spills, that
you hang them to dry and not ball or fold them up, until they
      are completely dry.  Balling up or folding wet linens will cause them to mildew.
      Damage such as mildew will require you to
replace the linen at full cost.

Will I be charged if the linens get stained?
      Most stains are common and are not a problem for us to get out.  The only stains
      you need to be aware of are stains
such as mildew, candle wax, ink, or damage such
      as burns or
tears.  These types of stains can not be removed therefore you would
      be responsible for replacing the linen at full cost.

Do you Price Match?

      We do!  If you find a lower price with another local rental company, bring us your quote. We will only price match for identical items. 

      Price matching is for rental items only ; cost such as special orders, delivery, pickup & setup are excluded.

What is your Policy for a Hurricane/Natural Disaster?

In the event of an extreme natural disaster or declared emergency such as hurricane, flood, ice, or snow Simply Elegant will allow customer to roll over all payments to a rescheduled date (subject to availability.)  If entire order is canceled and not rescheduled Simply Elegant will refund all payments up to 25% of the total, which is non-refundable.
