Event Rental FAQ’s
Can I see the items before booking?
Absolutely! Contact us using our form or email and we will be happy to schedule a visit. We are located three miles north of Uptown Charlotte.
Do you require a deposit?
We require a 25% non-refundable deposit to hold your event date when you decide to book with us. Full payment is due 14 days before your event date along with any order revisions.
Do you have an order minimum?
All orders within 25 miles of our warehouse are subject to a $250 minimum before fees and taxes. For orders under this amount, full payment is due at the time of booking and all payments are non-refundable. For longer distance events (more than 90 miles from our location) our order minimum begins around $2,000.
Can we pick up the items to avoid delivery charges?
Yes but it will be determined on a case-by-case basis (order size dependant). Items you are picking up must fit safely inside your vehicle. You are responsible for loading, unloading and securing the load in your vehicle; however, at your request, we can assist you.
NewSouth staff will exercise care when assisting you but cannot be responsible for damage to the vehicle or personal property that may occur during loading, unloading, or transport.
Customers may pick up and return orders during business hours (9:00am to 4:00pm Monday through Friday by appointment only).
Can you deliver to...?
We are located near uptown Charlotte and can deliver to surrounding areas such as: Cornelius, Mooresville, Concord, Rock Hill, Gastonia, Matthews, Pineville, Fort Mill, and Monroe.
If your event is a bit further away, no problem. We do deliver to cities as far as Asheville, Raleigh, Columbia, Charleston or Atlanta. However, we do ask that your order start at $2,000 before delivery costs. We are flexible with delivery options so if your venue location is not listed here please contact us for more details.
How much to deliver and how does it work?
