Yes, it occasionally happens and yes, you are responsible for all items from the time of delivery or will call pick-up until returned.

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 do charge for excessive 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 just need a few small items and want to pick them up?
Delivery is based on round trip mileage, the size of the delivery crew and the truck that’s needed. There is a $800 minimum rental order for deliveries requiring a truck.(not including tax and delivery fees) Deliveries requiring a truck generally begin at $150. (Late night retrievals incur additional charges)
If you do not need delivery you can pick up small items (no vintage games) at our East Dallas location by appointment. There is a $300 minimum for tabletop items and all other orders have a $300 minimum. All rental items must be transported inside an enclosed vehicle such as an SUV or box truck. Dixie Does Vintage reserves the right to decline pickup if the vehicle is deemed unsuitable for transportation and could possibly cause damage to our items.
Tabletop and China Rentals
Dixie Does Vintage is proud to offer our beautiful vintage and antique 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 will be assessed.
Does Dixie Does Vintage do styling and table scapes?
Dixie absolutely loves to style headtables and tabletops, décor, and other props.
We are also happy to work with your venue or day of coordinator, wedding planner, or you directly to bring your vision into reality by arranging all the small details that make a big difference for your big day. Just send us an email to discuss what you’re looking for.
