I would like to thank Mahaffey Tent and Party Rentals for their expertise, precision, and customer service. As a wedding planner I cannot tell you how many times they have saved the day with their over the top customer service. They make my job a ton easier by being available even down to the last minute of the event. I was over a wedding at a Memphis location when the bride decided she wanted more bistro tables, that the facility already had, but they didn't have linens. Mahaffey was setting up and offered to drive back to the warehouse, pick up tablecloths and bring them back to the facility. It is things like this that make them my number one rental company, by making every bride's dream come true. Thank you Mahaffey Employees!!!!

We loved using Mahaffey Rentals for a recent high school graduation party that we coordinated. When arriving at the venue, all table and chairs were in excellent working condition and everything was great! All table linens were exactly what we had wanted and expected for this party. After the party was over, the tables were picked up on time and the staff was very easy to work with! We really couldn't ask for a better event rental company to work with. Very respectful and professional. Thanks so much Mahaffey!

As a wedding venue, I have been using Mahaffey for my rental needs for over two years. They never fail to exceed my expectations! I have had event several event "crises" and had to call at the last minute and Carol, Angela and Taylor are always accommodating and helpful. It definitely puts my planner mind to ease to know that they are all in my corner and willing to go the extra mile for me!

Mark & his crew with Mahaffey Tent Company are great to work with - professional, friendly, efficient. Our venue is for outdoor weddings, so we frequently have tents brought in. The bride's wedding coordinator brought in Mahaffey for their tent, flooring and stairs. The quality was top-notch. They did everything - didn't require anything from us except welcome input on where to put the catering tent/how to make it work for us - and made it so beautiful and natural that it blended perfectly with the setting. Would definitely work with them again and recommend them to anyone.

It was a pleasure working with Mark Hules and Mahaffey Tent and Party Rentals. Mark and his staff were very accommodating and flexible when changes were suggested, and believe me, there were a lot of changes. The on site crew was one of the most polite, courteous and considerate bunch of guys I have worked with in a long time. Thanks Mark for making my job and my life easier in this month long production.

Great party rentals. I ordered the 20 by 60 tent with bandstand dance floor and tables/chairs for my wedding.
Everything arrived when promised. The installation was great and the tent quality was excellent.
My only grip was with the bandstand. They charge extra for a step to get on the bandstand and for carpeting for the top of the bandstand. If the wood had been in better shape, the carpeting wouldn't have been necessary. I think they charge too much for the bandstand overall. My suggestion is to build your own bandstand, or use a deck for your musicians. Otherwise very satisfied.

We were excited to use Mahaffey rentals after a bad experience with their top competitor, and had requested tables and chairs to use in our venue. The chairs they delivered, for the most part, were appealing, but they warned us that some of the chairs were broken and delivered 30 excess chairs to compensate. This led us to having to try every chair to ensure its stability, and we had some thirty extra chairs that couldn't be used at the event stacked in a corner.

The tables looked as through they were on their last leg, and had to be cleaned before putting any linens on top, given that they were very dirty. Additionally, a number varied widely in height, which posed a problem for the style of table arrangement. We called and complained, and, to their credit, the manager was pleasant and offered either delivery of alternative tables OR refund no less than a stated amount. We were short on time and opted for the refund. After the wedding, however, we were told that we would not be receiving the full refund, being that we "had not agreed on that amount." We had to call multiple times and complain emphatically to get our agreed upon refund.

All in all, however, Kristy, our consultant, was a phenomenal help in the preparation and planning. If we had not had issues with the tables and the refund, we would have given five stars across the board.

Mahaffey Tent and Party Rentals responded with the following comments:

We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed working with Kristy in the planning and preparing side of your event. Our tables have been purchased from several leading vendors, and the height can vary a fraction of an inch from one vendor to another. For most occasions this isn’t noticeable, but your table arrangement was affected and we refunded your money in the hopes of making things right. The delivery of extra chairs is our deeply embarrassing mistake. Our new driver was trained to deliver exact chair quantities in good working order. We shipped extras so the driver could swap any substandard chairs during his final quality control check. The driver has been re-trained to inspect our products without inconveniencing our customers. We expect these steps will prevent any future occurrences.

With respect,
Carol Gilleran – General Manager

Terrible. I was told they were the cheapest in town, however they do not have their stuff together over there at all. I would gladly pay a premium to not have to deal with the headache we had using Mahaffey. Multiple revised quotes because of mistakes or them not paying attention to what we wanted, unable to provide specific information when requested, awful job of putting up tent (things hanging down, chandeliers not put up properly, poles exposed), and very poor communication. I would never use this company again.

Our average Crew Supervisor has over 11 years experience. It is their practice to get the customer’s approval once a delivery is complete and each will gladly answer questions or correct any shortcomings before leaving your venue. We are sorry that you were unhappy and we did not have an opportunity to address your concerns.
