So what happens in case of damage or loss?
Yes, it occasionally happens and yes, you are responsible for all items from the time of delivery or will call pick-up until returned. A 10% damage waiver is included in each invoice to protect against missing flatware, chipped china and glassware, and expected wear and tear on our rentals. If the furniture is maliciously damaged and in need of professional restoration, you will be billed for the repair or replacement of the furniture.
Texas weather can be unpredictable and Dixie Does Vintage rentals are not weather-proofed, therefore, we require clients to provide a back-up plan for any outdoor events. We want to ensure that our rental items are taken care of, secure, and protected from weather at all times.
We charge for broken, damaged, and unreturned items including missing equipment such as containers, totes, packing and moving supplies. If the item is fixable, you are liable for the repair cost. If the item is beyond repair and needs to be removed from inventory, we will assess the value at three to five times the rental rate or replacement cost. Dixie Does Vintage requires a credit card on file. Fee’s for non-repairable or unreturned items will be accessed on a case by case basis and charged to the credit card on file. Replacement fees vary according to each item and may be obtained prior to renting.
Tell me about delivery? What if I want to pick up?
Delivery is based on mileage, size of the delivery crew and vehicle needed. There is a minimum rental order for deliveries (not including tax and delivery fees) (Late night retrievals incur additional charges)
If you do not need delivery you can pick up small items (no vintage games, furniture, or china) at our East Dallas location by appointment. Will call pick up has a $100 minimum (China has a $200 minimum).
Tabletop and China Rentals
Dixie Does Vintage is proud to offer our beautiful vintage china for your event. Our vintage china collection is more delicate than commercial catering china and never should be washed in a dishwasher. China must never be subjected to extreme heat such as a microwave, stovetop, oven, or broiler. It is your responsibility to inform your wedding planner or caterer of this to ensure the china is properly handled and repackaged.
All china, glassware, and flatware is given to you clean, sterilized and ready to use. Please keep in mind the vintage silver plate flatware has a patina that comes from age, is mismatched, and sometimes has an occasional bit of tarnish.
After use please instruct your caterer to scrape, empty glassware of liquids, and rinse all china, glassware, and flatware before returning in crates and totes or an additional cleaning fee of $200 will be assessed.
