Mahaffey and their team are great! They have a very nice showroom, plenty of helpful salespeople on hand, and they have a wide selection of rentals available (tents, tables and chairs, linens, dishes, furniture, etc.). They had reasonable pricing and they were pretty flexible with my venue's time frame for set-up and pick-up. Their rentals were in good condition--wear-and-tear was not very noticeable (other companies in the city didn't seem to take care of their products as well and it showed)--and they got everything set up the way we wanted. Responses to my calls and emails were always quick and friendly. It's important to make sure you know up front how fees work for set up (e.g. there's a fee to have them set up chairs) and after-hours pick ups (e.g. Saturday night vs. Monday daytime), but these are are reasonable and understandable. Overall, they're professional, friendly, and have great products and I would certainly work with them again in the future.

I used this company through my venue and they were awesome. I went on a Saturday morning with my venue wedding planner to pick out my linens and chairs and we had the best time. Never once did I feel like I was being rushed to make a selection (even though it was a Saturday and they close early) and Haley was extra helpful in making suggestions that we had not even thought about. My mom and I both left feeling like we were the only customer she had that day. Once I got to my reception and saw all of the beautiful rentals, I knew that my wedding planner had picked the right vendor for all of my rental needs. I will be using Mahaffey for my personal rentals now!

Thanks to Jason Bernard for working with my husband and I in renting a tent plus several additional items including tables, chairs, a dance floor and more for our outdoor wedding at our family lake house. A special thanks to the crew that set everything up while there was a down pour of rain - Oscar and his guys (plus Susan). Everything looked beautiful and the sun showed up just in time and was in full affect on the day of our wedding. The 40x60 tent was a perfect size for our family and friends of 130, plus a dance floor and DJ table. Several neighbors and guest inquired about who provided the tent services, and we were glad to note that it was Mahaffey Tent and Event Rentals. Thanks again.

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!

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 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 & Event 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

Planning a wedding is a much larger undertaking than most can really understand before they sit down and begin the planning process. As someone is the Hotel, Restaurant, Tourism industry not only did I have an understanding of EXACTLY how much work goes into pulling off these kinds of events and how CRUCIAL an AMAZING rentals/events team is for making the magic of a wedding day come together without the fuss, but I have EXTREMELY high expectations as well.

Angela and Mahaffey Tent were the perfect wedding soldiers! Angela and her sweet team not only listened intently to craft the look that I wanted without busting our budget, but every single person you speak to in the office or warehouse is always professional with that personal touch!

Thanks to Mahaffey Tent our special day was PERFECT, from start to finish!

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.
