Questions? Not sure where to start?
We are happy to consult with you, either by email or phone, to answer initial questions to your needs, your budget, and the theme of and date of your event. Following this conversation we can determine if we are able to provide what your are looking for and schedule a visit to view our inventory. Our warehouse is open by appointment only.
Installation and Retrieval
Elements Preserved offers delivery service, with much more than a typical ‘drop-off’ and ‘pickup’ service. Rates are calculated based upon the location of the event, size of the order, specific items selected, and your specific needs for the timing of our arrival. Services begin at $150 and include the following:
- Transportation of your Elements Preserved rentals to your event location
- Unpacking and placement of Elements Preserved rentals (or set up of large pieces according to the layout of your event)
- Retrieval and removal of all Elements Preserved rentals
We give you two options for your Installation and Retrieval services:
Traditional Installation and Retrieval
Your Elements Preserved Rentals will be installed within a specific 4-hour window on your event date, and/or retrieved within a 4-hour window following your event. This is the ideal option for clients who wish to confirm their installation and retrieval time windows at the time of their booking. This is also the best option if your venue requires same day installation and retrieval.
Personalized Installation and Retrieval
Your Elements Preserved rentals will be installed and/or retrieved at a requested time. This is the ideal option if we need to arrive at a specified time to meet the complexity of your set-up, and we are hired for styling services, or if your venue requires immediate load-in/load-out times.
We’ll work with you to determine your needs, whether it be a traditional or personalized installations and retrievals.
