Frequently asked Questions:

When can I pick up the items I am renting?
We are open Mon - Fri 9-3.  Please call and confirm pick up time at 613 332 8014.  We are very flexible and when it involves decorating items allow pickup a few days before your event.

Can I have times delivered?

We can arrange for delivery of your rental items if you are unable to pick up.  The delivery crew charges $100 for delivery and $100 for pickup and return. So basically they bring a large trailer ...load everything up at the warehouse and unload at your house.  They do not set up items such as tables and chairs.

What if I can't bring something back by the 11am deadline?
Please understand that we have additional people working on the Monday's to accept the returns and to start working on the cleaning process. If your items are not in by 11am on the scheduled day you will be charged a late fee unless you have specific permission from All Occasion Event Rentals.
