Pickups can range up to 60 mins after the desired pickup time. It is required to have at least a 60 min window before and after for delivery and pickup so drivers can make deliveries on time, otherwise, delivery and pickup times are NOT GUARANTEED. Latest pickup time is at 9pm. If the event goes late into the night it is recommended to choose the next day/overnight option (additional fee depending on quantity of product rented and distance), which we will than pickup the following morning between 5am – 12pm.
Delivery: Delivery service provides delivery of your item(s) up to 100 feet from address and/or parking lot curb. Delivery times should be arranged about 1-2 hours before the start of your event, however, if the event is on private/ personal property we may opt to deliver sooner or evening prior to event. The person who made the reservation or who made payment must be present during the time of delivery to sign for the rental. Customer is required to check the rented equipment for obvious damages and quantities as quoted.
Setup: It is the customer’s responsibility to make sure there is a large enough space for setup. Customer is responsible for measuring their setup area to make sure it will fit. If, upon delivery time, PICNIC CITY discovers there is not enough space for setup or is a hazardous condition, then a cancellation fee may be applied up to the full amount of the rental.
Pickup: Pickup’s will begin from your requested time, and not before, but can range up to 60 minutes after (since drivers have more than one order, they may be delayed). If you are finished before the pickup time, we ask that the items be prepared, free and clear for pickup. If the driver is running late or should anything happen you will be contacted immediately to be notified. Overnight pickups are done the next morning between 5am – 12pm, usually the majority of the pickups are before 12pm.

Collections: Any balance that is unpaid after 30 days of the event date will be sent to collections. We will make our best effort to contact you via phone and email to notify you of any unpaid balances. If after 30 days we still do not get a reply back or payment made for outstanding balances due, then we will have to send the invoice to collections for further processing.
Tax: The property is being leased (rented) in substantially the same form as acquired by the lessor (rentor) and the lessor (rentor) acquired the property in a transaction that was a retail sale with respect to which the retailer reported and paid sales tax or as to which the lessor (rentor) has paid use tax measured by the purchase price of the property. Therefore, there is no tax charged to our rental products.
Note: Customer must be present at the park at least 60 minutes before the time of delivery.
Permits: Customer should call the local city Park and Recreation Department to inquire about their rules and regulations prior to placing order. Park permits are required from the customer prior to event date by most parks, some don’t require it, so please check with park officials to make sure. If a permit is required but customer did not obtain it or falsified information, park officials may require picnic equipment to be picked up or moved during the event, in which case there will be no refund.

If site is not prepared driver might be forced to leave and reschedule your delivery at a later time, in which case a delivery fee might be applied. If when possible please reserve a two car length parking space in from of property to properly deliver equipment when alley way is impossible to pass.

Orders cancelled between 1 day and the close of business the business day prior to delivery are subject to a 75% cancellation charge. Cancellations after the close of business the business day prior to delivery are subject to a 100% cancellation charge. Other charges may be applicable if the Company has already incurred expenses pertaining to your order.
If the customer cannot get a hold of the company, or has called after business hours, it is still the customer’s responsibility to leave a message in the company’s messaging system about cancelling their reservation or sending an email to email@example.com regarding the cancellation.
RAIN POLICY: In case of rain or severe weather conditions (high winds exceeding 20mph) during your rental date, customer is allowed to cancel the same day before delivery without any cancellation fee. Customer MUST CALL and cancel before 8am on the day of the event. If customer cancels the order, it will be canceled for the rest of the rental period with no guarantee that PICNIC CITY can deliver if weather conditions get better. If customer decides to go ahead with the order even though the weather forecast says it will rain, but it is not actually raining at the time, then we will go ahead and deliver the order. However, if it does start to rain during the rental time, PICNIC CITY reserves the right to cancel the order, due to safety concerns, with NO refund provided.
During rain/inclement weather, it is unsafe, therefore we do cancel orders during raining/inclement weather days. However, since people do have events and parties that are usually planned out weeks/months before, we give customers the option to deliver the order or cancel it for days that are predicted to rain.
It is the customer’s responsibility to call PICNIC CITY to cancel their order or go through with it during these rain/inclement weather days before 8am. If customer decides to cancel order once PICNIC CITY driver has already arrived at their location, than PICNIC CITY reserves the right to charge customer a cancellation fee for not contacting before delivery and for making our driver do the labor work and drive out to your location.
