We only request a deposit when equipment is left overnight. If your event ends before 11pm, we can bring the sound system on the same day of the event and pick it up on that same day (cut off time for pick ups is 11pm). As long as your event ends before 11pm, you can enjoy the rental without a deposit.

Yes, we prefer to handle the equipment ourselves. This prevents damage to the equipment. Because of that, all our rentals are full service, that is a technician will bring the equipment to your event, set it up, test it and at the end of the event he will pick it up and bring it back to our location.
Cost of transportation and set up (anywhere in the tri-state area of NY, NJ & CT) is included in all packages. For locations outside a ratio of 100 miles of NYC , transportation is available at a flat fee of $150. Please email us to get invoice for that extra fee. If event ends between 11pm and 2am, we can pick it up for an extra fee of $150. Please contact us for extra invoice.
This policy give peace of mind to us and free you from having to physically transport and set up the equipment, plus it allows to offer our no deposit policy ( events ending before 11pm.)

No, we do not have a retail store. We keep our equipment in a storage facility. This allow us to save on overhead expenses. We pass this savings to our customers. Since we do not have a retail store, unfortunately, we cannot offer you the option to check the sound first.
