We also use Greyhound Package Express. If an item is small enough, we use Fedex, UPS or USPS. We will find the best shipping option for you. Let us figure out the shipping for you. 

Do you rent items for events, filming or photography?

Yes, contact with items you are interested in for pricing options and shipping. 

How do you clean the vintage furniture? 

Depending on the item will determine the cleaning method. However, everything we us is nontoxic. We start by using compressed air to blow out hard to reach area, then wipe everything down with a water cloth. We sometimes use a dry eraser for scuff marks. If a piece needs reconditioning, we use linseed oil. 

Can I use one of my shippers to pick up the item? 

Absolutely, we have worked with many clients and their shippers. Just let us know that's what you would prefer.
