Little Prop Shop Rental Policy

Once your project and paperwork is set up with our accounting department, you may finalize your rental. We rent most props and apparel on a weekly basis. A one-week rental period is seven calendar days. For example, you can rent on Wednesday and return on the following Wednesday. Click here to download Prop Rental form.

RATES

Rental rates are calculated on a weekly basis, as follows:

  • First Week - Full Price*
  • Second Week - Half Price*
  • Third Week - Half Price* 
  • Fourth Week - Free*

Rental prices are 25% of our valuation of the item. We also offer a discounted 3-day rental at 20% off of the regular weekly rental rate. Any rentals over 3 days are charged the weekly rate. *Valuation of any items are non-negotiable.

RENTAL EXAMPLE 
Chair - $175
Gossip Bench - $49
Vases - $395 

Total Weekly Rental = $154.75
Total 3 Day Rental (20% off the Weekly Rental) = $123.80

PAYMENT/SECURITY DEPOSIT

We accept payment for rentals in cash, company checks, VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express. A required deposit (for customers with accounts) is the amount of your production's insurance deductible (see below) or the full value of the rented props, whichever is less.

If you do not have an account with us, you'll need to leave a security deposit in the amount of the full valuation of the props rented, which we will keep if the props are damaged, lost, or destroyed. This can be your choice of a credit card authorization, a check which we will cash (along with secondary cc authorization), or cash. Security deposits are fully refundable when the props come back on time, undamaged, and otherwise in the same condition as when they left.

PICK UP/DELIVERY/SHIPPING

Rented props and apparel may be picked up and returned during normal business hours, Wednesday - Saturday 12 p.m - 7 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m. - 6 p.m. Delivery is available for an additional fee. We ship nationwide, via USPS or UPS. Shipping incurs extra charges unless billed directly to your carrier account. Please plan to blanket wrap any furniture items that you are transporting. We will wrap and box any smaller items.
