Consult – Site Visit – Delivery – Take Down – Pick-Up
Our website is a great place to see many of the items we have to rent here at Chairs for Affairs and we hope you will take advantage of the many tools we have built into our website to begin the planning process. Be sure to use the checklist we have provided to ensure you have considered everything you will need to make your vision a reality. From beginning to end we are dedicated to making the planning, set-up and tear-down of your event as easy and stress-free as possible.
If you have determined your needs and would like to reserve the items for your event, simply call our office (925-370-1300) during normal business hours and one of our friendly rental specialists will be happy to help you. Phones are staffed Monday thru Friday from 9 am – 5 pm. We are currently closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
Coming into the showroom allows you the opportunity to review linen samples and to see how actual items will complement each other to make your event a unique and individual experience. If you’re looking for help putting together a rental order and want advice on the items that would best fit for your event, drop by our showroom and one of our rental specialists would be happy to help! Until further notice, appointments are limited to specific hours and are by appointment only.
If you think you need a bit more help putting all your ideas into a plan that will work, need advice on décor or vendors, need a timeline, or just need more support, we offer private event consultations with our professional event planners. These meetings are by appointment only and the fee is $50 per hour.
Most of the time, we can answer all your questions with just pictures and measurements you provide so we’ll ask for those first. If we are unable to sufficiently help you based on that information, we are happy to arrange a day and time for one of our professional team members to meet you at your venue to help you consider seating arrangements, tent configurations, etc. Fees start at $50 and increase based on city.
Delivery and Pickup
Round trip delivery and pickup is available for a flat rate. Delivery windows are typically 8am-4:30pm however premium smaller delivery windows are also available. Additional charges may apply for service outside our normal delivery windows. We do offer Sunday delivery and pickup at a small additional charge, although we have fewer vehicles in service so early booking is advised.
Curbside Service: Upon delivery, items (including umbrellas and pop up canopies) will be stacked neatly on your curb. Setup and teardown of tables and chairs is available for an additional charge. Our crews will carry in, and set up, larger items such as frame tents, staging, bars, heavy umbrella bases, and dance floors. Upon pickup, the items must be returned to the delivery location. Dishes and glassware must be free of debris and liquid, and returned to the correct crate/rack. Chairs must be stacked on the provided carts.
Most items are also available for will-call at our showroom during normal business hours. For quickest service, please reserve your items a minimum of 5 days in advance (we recommend booking earlier to ensure we have your items available). Due to the impact of Covid on our business, our will-call hours are currently reduced and hours may change based on the time of year or currently circumstances.
