Yes, we will take care of the set up and organizing of the rentals, the service period & a
full break down of the venue including trash removal, cleaning & repacking rental items.
What other expenses should I expect?
Our invoices will have the food expenses as well as labor, linens, state taxes, service
charge and any incidentals (bagged ice, etc...).
Is my party too small or too large cater?
No, we work with groups of all sizes and have experience with the coordination of large
groups. We can also recommend menus for delivery that can work well for the smaller
gatherings if labor isn’t needed.

Yes, if you are looking for just an estimate we recommend talking with the tent company
directly. Upon hire we will have the necessary details required to place an order for you.
An account will be started in your (company’s) name and VT Tent will bill you directly.

payment of 50% is required two weeks prior to your event and a final billing is done after
the event reflecting your final numbers and labor.
Do you offer free consultations?
Yes. The free consultation could simply be a "meet & greet" time period to answer some basic questions. It could also be more of a working meeting to fine tune an estimate. By completing the short Request For Estimate form, it enables us to be better prepared for your consultation. To schedule, simply call 802-651-1081 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with a few dates that work for you and we'll coordinate from there.
