At Something Vintage, we are working hard to keep our clients and employees safe during the COVID-19 crisis and limit their exposure to the disease. ⠀
To our clients with events, we are sanitizing all hard surfaces before they go to events with hydrogen peroxide and alcohol-based agents that have been shown to eliminate coronaviruses and spraying them down again when they return to our warehouse.⠀
For our Delivery Teams, we’re sanitizing the truck cabs after each use and our teams are using good hand-washing practices, hand sanitizer all the time, and gloves. We’ve also given them peroxide-based spray to bring with them on deliveries.⠀
To keep our clients and team safe, Something Vintage will be limiting non-essential warehouse and in-person office operations until March 31, including warehouse visits. We will all be posted up at home working remotely to serve you and spread rays of joy through our posts 🌟⠀
What if I need to reschedule my event due to COVID-19?
For those who have had to reschedule and postpone events, our heart goes out to you! We will do all we can to help you as we all navigate through these uncharted waters. It’s our mission to support and serve our clients at all times and remain a positive force in the events industry and this situation is definitely no exception! ⠀
Rescheduling Your Event:
To reschedule or postpone your event due to COVID-19, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. To make rescheduling events as seamless as possible, we are allowing clients to apply their payments to a future event date within two years. We will check the availability of items on your order to verify they are available for your new date. We kindly ask that you choose a new event date as soon as possible so we are best able to accommodate you, since we cannot guarantee the specific pieces on your order will be available for your rescheduled event date. But rest assured, we will work with you to find replacement items you love just as much, if that becomes necessary!
One thing to mention is that your delivery & labor charge will likely change, depending on your new date and delivery availability. The delivery charge on your order was calculated for your event date, the specific items on your order, and your venue. We’d need to recalculate delivery if everything is moved.
We understand that much has changed in your plans and that can become unnerving. Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to support you during this time! You can reach us by email email@example.com or giving us a call at (202) 596-8445.
When should I book?
Due to COVID-19, a lot of our clients that had events this spring are now rescheduling for summer and fall 2020. Since we specialize in vintage and custom pieces, this means a lot of our inventory that was available last week is now booking up fast and our delivery schedule is almost full. If you have had your heart set on certain pieces, and your event falls between August – November 2020, please book as soon as possible to ensure availability!

Where do you deliver to?
We deliver to Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New York City. But we are always looking for a good excuse for a road trip, so let us know where you are and we will see if we can help!
We require a $950 rental minimum for all delivery orders in the DMV area that are under 75 miles from us. The rental minimums increase depending on distance from DC: Philadelphia is a $3,000 minimum and New York City is $5,000.
How much does delivery cost and what is included?
We make delivery easy so you don’t have to worry on the day of your event! Our delivery service includes delivery, assembly, set-up, break-down, and pick-up. Basically, we are not just a hit it and quit it kind of team! Our crew will place each piece according to your specifications and make sure everything is FLAWLESS. And don’t worry, you’re not being too much, our crews are used to our very particular standards so they know the drill!
Our Standard Delivery service (M-F 9AM to 5PM) starts at $375 and weekend/after hours delivery starts at $475. Delivery charges are based on mileage, order size, and access to your event space. We require a 3-hour window for both deliveries and pick-ups but can accommodate smaller windows for an additional surcharge.
Once your order is confirmed by paying the 50% nonrefundable deposit and signing our rental terms and conditions, we will have you fill out a Delivery Details Form to make sure we have everything we need to make the delivery go smoothly! One week prior to your event, we will confirm your delivery details and provide you with our delivery team point of contact.
What if I just want a few items, could I pick them up myself?
Yes! You can pick up small pieces and some furniture from our warehouse. We require a $300 rental minimum for all pick-up orders. Unfortunately, all gold-framed upholstered furniture, rattan furniture, and any of our more delicate pieces are not available for pick-up.
Do I need a special vehicle to pick-up items?
All furniture items such as tables, chairs, sofas, and backdrops must be picked up in a utility cargo van (with no seats) or a box truck. No SUVs, vans, or open pickup trucks will be accepted for pick-up. Furniture must be strapped down with ratchet straps to prevent it from falling over during transit.
China, props, and small items can be picked-up in any vehicle.
How long is the rental period?
The rental period for each item is 24-hours. Need it longer? We are happy to work with you and see if we can accommodate!
Am I able to change an order once I reserve items?
All one-of-a-kind and two-of-a-kind items such as upholstered pieces, bars, furniture, and decor are not removable from an order once they are reserved. Non-unique items like our farm tables, dining chairs, and china may be reduced by quantities of 10 percent up to 14 days before your event date.
Is it possible to see the items in person before I place an order?
Of course! We have appointments for warehouse visits on Tuesday and Thursday’s from 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM. Please shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a ring at 202.596.8445 to make an appointment and we will do our best to accommodate!
Where are you located?
Our warehouse is located at 4828 Stamp Road, Temple Hills, MD 20748. When you see a fence of rainbow colored doors – you are in the right spot! We are open by appointment only.
I know I want to rent an item from you but I don’t know what might look good with it. Can you help?
We are happy to help pick out items that will go with your event and within your budget. For more in-depth styling and design services, please check out our Event Design Packages.
I’m looking for a particular piece but you don’t have it. Can you help?
Yes! Our craftsman can build most anything and we love going on scavenger hunts to find that must-have item for your event. Please email us at email@example.com to discuss your project.
What if I stain or break it?
We understand, it happens to the best of us! We include an optional damage waiver on each to proposal that covers any normal wear and tear, stains, and rips. Our damage waiver in non-refundable and does not cover damage due to neglect such as water damage from rain. If the item breaks, we do charge a replacement cost of 5x the rental cost to replace the item.
Farm Tables. Please tell me more!
We make our authentic farm tables from centuries-old salvaged wood. Each reclaimed wood farmhouse table has unique saw marks, nail holes, and time-worn impressions that tell the story of the barns and buildings from which they were salvaged.
All of our farmhouse tables are 96 inches by 42 inches and seat 8-10 people depending on layout and chair size.
How do I care for the vintage and handmade china rentals?
Our china is fragile and should not be placed in the dishwasher or heated. Before being returned to Something Vintage, the china must be rinsed free from any food particles and hand-dried or the client will have to pay a dish cleaning fee. All teacups must be thoroughly rinsed with no remaining tea or coffee remnants inside – this stains our valuable cups!
Do you have linens, tents, or string lights?
Unfortunately, at this time, we do not. We work with a lot of great vendors and would be happy to recommend someone in your area.
Did we miss something?
Something Vintage Rentals specializes in reclaimed, handmade and heirloom pieces for weddings and events large or small. Our handmade farm tables, upholstered furniture, vintage china and custom builds are perfect for creating bespoke displays. Contact us today to receive your custom proposal!
