I was referred to them from my caterer. My visit to them to pick out the specific colors went great. The prices were fair and the staff was friendly and accommodating since i wanted to set up a mock table to be sure things were exact. I left there thinking .. "Awesome!"

the week before the wedding we were confirming the time of delivery, But they couldnt tell me when they would be delivered. I was told by ARD( A Rental Depot) that they would be there before the wedding started :/, this was concerning seeing that i was setting up my own tables.

Day of the wedding: Around 8 am i show up and happily i was told they delivered the linens around 4:30 the day of YAY!.... i look at them and there are THREE different colors of purples for my dinner tables!!!! .....I immediately call and they answer saying oh we knew you would be calling.... I was floored, because they knew that i would be upset, but they didnt bother calling me the day before, when they knew they didnt have the number of tablecloths in the color i ordered. they just dropped them off.... so I asked if they had anything to fix the problem, that is when the Owner came on the phone and proceeded to act like she didnt understand why i was upset, (that my reception looked like a circus, and that the colors werent right. they sent a blue/royal purple). eventually she brought out overlays to try and cover them up, which was terrible, and i asked if she may just have ivory or white, and she said she refused to drive 30 minutes back to her shop, and 30 minutes back to the venue to bring the table cloths. I had her take her tablecloths and leave, CONNIE DUGGLIN Rentals came to our rescue and had all of them in stock and we were able to pick them up and and they saved our day, for cheaper of a price than ARD offered!

Although it could've been a rare mistake, they way she conducted business and got an attitude was unreal. Never will I do business with her again.

I will start with the positives. They provided quality chairs, tables, linens and the like for our wedding. They arrived on time for delivery and pick-up. Upon first meeting Remy, he was very laid back and helpful. He was overall a really nice guy. The poor customer service experience began when Anita called me the Friday before my wedding, while I was working, and asked that I call her back to set up payment. The following day, I get a voicemail (not even 24 hours later) that was snarky in tone saying my account was now past due and I need to call asap to set up payment, again while I was at work. Really? There are many reasons why this was rude and unprofessional. I live in Indiana and was getting married in Florida. Needless to say, a week before my wedding, wrapping up work, packing, etc - A Rental Depot was not my top priority but Anita sure seemed to think she should be. Remy was rude when we meet them at the residence for delivery and set up to find them already setting up tables in a part of the yard where they are not to be set up. He says something smart about dog poop in the yard when the guys start to move the chairs to the correct spot but in the wrong way. I tell them that isn't the way they are supposed to be set up to which Remy comes over to me and says, "If you ask us to move anything again, I'm going to charge you". I was already being charged for set up but there was some miscommunication on their end. No one consulted me on set up which is a service we paid for. I mentioned this and he said well someone should have asked you. Well, no one did. He knew he upset me and I will say he knew he was wrong and apologized to my now husband many times. I'm assuming they had a busy day but I'm pulling the bride card and don't need the added stress of grumpy vendors. Between the last two interactions with Remy and Anita, I did not have a great taste in my mouth with this company and would have a hard time recommending them to a friend of mine.

We were very impressed from the first moment that we met with Remy and the staff at Rental Depot in Sarasota. We were getting married at a home on Anna Maria, Fl. and it was a rental. All we had were some pictures of the property to show them, and they were able to give us some ideas of a set up that turned out beautifully. The delivery was early the day before the wedding, giving us plenty of time to figure out where everything needed to be placed. They were very flexible and professional! We realized that some of the items we had rented were not going to be usable, and Rental Depot graciously gave us a full refund. I can't express how helpful, and courteous everyone was in helping us plan this event.

The Rental Depot was wonderful to work with. They set up a tent, tables, chairs and wireless lanterns with LED lights for our welcome dinner. They know the AMI area so that helped a ton. They were set up on time and coordinated with the venue to leave some of the tables/chairs there overnight. They made changes to our requests at the drop of a hat and were very professional. I would highly recommend the Rental Depot for tent rental along with tables, chairs and working with you to figure out a lighting option.

I cannot express to anyone who reads this how amazing this company is! The areas that wedding wire asks me to respond to including quality of service, value, flexibility, professionalism, and responsiveness we all 5's for this company. It was just a try pleasure working with them. I met with them in person on a couple different occasions, and when I could not make it into the store the emails I would get responses the next day!

They really know what they are doing when it comes to lighting as well. My venue was all outside on a lawn and I was so nervous that there was not going to be enough light. They told me exactly what I needed and did not try to sell me more than necessary.

These people are truly amazing to work with and just such genuine caring individuals! Thank you to all who helped in my special day! Big shout out to Claudette and Remmy for all your hard work!

We rented various odds and ends from Rental Depot such as our wedding arch, vases, cake stand, aisle runner, some fans, and a few other things. They were so nice, professional and flexible. In fact, we were doing DIY stuff with the arch and vases and they let us take everything earlier than the day before, for free, so we could have time set them up with our DIY trimmings. I mean, how awesome and trusting is that?? I feel like customer service like that is so rare these days, but so important. Also one of the fans didn't work and they comped it immediately from our bill, no problem. I would 100% recommend them for your future events.
