If product is available, we will accommodate requests for increased quantities. Please refer to our cancellation policy to avoid charges related to cancelling items.

Will Bright deliver my rental items?

Yes. We offer curbside delivery and pickup service for an additional fee. It is highly recommended someone is available on site to meet the truck and sign for the delivery. Standard delivery rates apply during business hours. Before or after-hour deliveries and pickups are available with prior arrangement for an additional fee. Please refer to our planning guide for more information. Please read about our truck sizes to make sure we can deliver to your venue.

Yes. Set up and take down services are available at an additional charge. These arrangements MUST be made in advance of delivery and pickup. Please refer to our planning guide or ask your event consultant for more details.

Do I need to return my items clean?

No. In general, we ask only that you return dishware and food service items lightly rinsed, debris-free, and replaced in the original cases provided. We ask you to shake out and air-dry linens. Barbeques and fire pits must be cool and empty of briquettes. We charge an additional cleaning fee for stoves and barbecues. For details, please refer to our planning guide or ask your event consultant for more details.

What is my responsibility for equipment return?

Responsibility for equipment remains with the customer from the time of delivery to the time of return. Please be sure equipment is secured when not in use and protected from weather.  Tables and chairs should be broken-down and stacked ready for pickup. All china, silver, glassware, etc. should be rinsed food-free and repacked in the same containers in which they were received. Linens should be refuse-free and dry to prevent staining and mildew. Laundry bags are provided with linen orders; please return them in those containers.

What happens if items are missing after the event?

The pickup staff will count the rental items on-site at your request to verify you are returning everything. We do charge for missing items not covered by the Equipment Protection Plan. If you find any rental items after the pickup is complete, please return them to our office and we will credit your account.
