How do I rent items from Something Vintage Rentals?
It’s simple! First, email us using our contact form with the items and quantity that you want. We will then respond within 24-48 business hours so we can learn more about your upcoming event and check on item availability. Next, we will create a proposal for you. All items are rented on a first come/first serve basis. If you would like to reserve your items, you pay 50 percent non-refundable deposit to book the items. You will pay the remaining 50 percent 14 days prior to your event date. That’s it! You sign and pay all online using our secure payment system.
How does delivery work?
We currently service Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, and some parts of Pennsylvania. But we are always looking for a good excuse for an adventure, so let us know where you are and we will see if we can get to you!
We require a $700 rental minimum for all delivery orders under 150 miles away. All orders over 150 miles, we require a $5,000 rental minimum. Our delivery service starts at $249 and goes up based on mileage, items requested, and access to the venue. Our delivery service includes delivery, assembly, set-up, break-down, and pick-up. We require a 3-hour window for delivery and pick-up unless arranged in writing with us.
Once your order is confirmed by paying the 50% deposit, we will have you fill out a Delivery Details Form to make sure we have everything we need to make the delivery go smoothly. One week prior to your event, we will confirm your delivery details and provide you with our delivery team point of contact.
How long is the rental period?
The rental period for each item is 24-hours. Need it longer? We are happy to work with you and see if we can accommodate.
Am I able to change an order once I reserve items?
All one-of-a-kind and two-of-a-kind items such as upholstered pieces, bars, furniture, and decor are not removable from an order once they are reserved. Non-unique items like our farm tables, dining chairs, and china may be reduced by quantities of 10 percent up to 14 days before your event date.
What if I just want a few items, could I pick them up myself?
Yes! You can pick up small pieces and some furniture from our warehouse. We require a $300 rental minimum for all pick-up orders. Unfortunately, our Marseille: Louis Ivory Chairs, Peacock Chairs, Olivia Settee, and Payton wing-back chairs are not available for pick-up.
Do I need a special vehicle to pick-up items?
All furniture items must be picked up in a utility cargo van (with no seats) or a box truck. No SUVs, vans, or open pickup trucks will be accepted for pick-up. Furniture must be strapped down with ratchet straps to prevent it from falling over during transit.
China, props, and small items can be picked-up in any vehicle.
Is it possible to see the items in person before I place an order?
Of course! We have appointments for warehouse visits on Tuesday and Thursday’s from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a ring at 202.596.8445 to make an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate!
Where are you located?
Our warehouse is located at 4826 Stamp Road, Temple Hills, MD 20748. We are open by appointment only.
I know I want to rent an item from you but I don’t know what might look good with it. Can you help?
We are happy to help pick out items that will go with your event and within your budget.
I’m looking for a particular piece but you don’t have it. Can you help?
Yes! Our craftsman can build most anything and we love going on scavenger hunts to find that must-have item for your event. Please email us at email@example.com to discuss your project.
What if I stain or break it?
It happens to the best of us. We include an optional damage waiver on each to proposal for any normal wear and tear, stains, and rips. Our damage waiver does not include damage due to neglect such as water damage from rain. If the item breaks, we do charge a replacement cost of 5x the rental cost to replace the item.
Farmhouse Tables. Please tell me more.
We make our authentic farm tables from centuries-old salvaged wood. Each reclaimed wood farmhouse table has unique saw marks, nail holes, and time-worn impressions that tell the story of the barns and buildings from which they were salvaged.
All of our farmhouse tables are 96 inches by 42 inches and seat 8-10 people depending on layout.
How do I care for the vintage china rentals?
Our china is fragile and should not be placed in the dishwasher or heated. Before being returned to Something Vintage, the china must be rinsed free from any food particles and hand-dried or the client will have to pay a dish cleaning fee. All teacups must be thoroughly rinsed with no remaining tea or coffee remnants inside–this stains our valuable cups!
Do you have linens, tents, or string lights?
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not. We work with a lot of great vendors and would be happy to recommend someone in your area.
