How far in advance should I place my order?
Please order early to ensure availability as all rentals are provided on a first come, first serve basis. We recommend you book your message at least 2 weeks in advance to allow us to schedule appropriately. We highly recommend advance ordering for popular times of year such as graduation. We typically limit our bookings 2 per evening.
I just placed my order. What happens now?
Once you’ve ordered your yard greeting, you’ll receive a confirmation via email. Please double check the address, delivery date and time to ensure we have everything correct. All greetings must be paid for in advance. We will make every effort to contact you if a problem arises as your satisfaction is very important to us.
When can I expect delivery?
Messages are set up by us the night prior to a desired date (usually between 6-9 p.m.) We will try our best to accommodate for special delivery times if requested. Simply contact us! Our yard sign rentals are typically for 24 hours; however, extra time can be available for an additional cost.
What is included in my order?
Yard Party Rental will deliver and setup your message with our large 18” letters, numbers and specialty signs to celebrate the occasion in any outdoor space. We will pick up the yard greeting (usually between 6-9 p.m.) the following evening. If you would like to setup for an extra day, it is available for an additional cost.
Can I order something I don’t see on your site?
We will absolutely do our best to provide! Please allow us approximately 3 weeks to get you what you would like to see. Don’t hesitate to ask!
Where do you deliver?
We are excited to serve the neighborhoods, schools and businesses in Howard County, Baltimore County and the surrounding areas within a 15-mile radius from zip code 21045 for no additional delivery charge. However, if your Yard Party rental request is beyond 15 miles, an additional delivery charge will be applied to the order. Click here to check mileage.
Do you fill same day orders?
We sure do! This is based on availability and is subject to a $25 rush fee if booked after 7 pm the evening before set up and $50 after 12 pm the day of. Don’t hesitate to ask!
Do you do Holiday deliveries?
Yes, we do! There will be an additional $50 setup charge on New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Easter, Christmas Eve, and Christmas day. On these holidays, our setup times will vary so we can get home in time to celebrate with family!
If the sign is a gift, how will the recipient know who sent it?
When a yard decoration display is rented as a gift, a hang tag card will be left on the front door for the recipient that lets them know who sent it and how the rental works.
Where will the signs be placed in the yard?
We will use our best judgment regarding sign placement to ensure optimal visibility and a pleasing backdrop for photographs. If there is a specific spot you would like for the signs to be placed, (i.e. the backyard or side-yard) please notify us when you place your order and we will do our best to accommodate your request. We cannot guarantee exact placement if you are not at home when we deliver the signs, and/or if you have not marked the location in the yard with a clearly visible marker.
Will the signs damage my yard?
The signs should not damage your yard. The yard card signs are displayed on very small wire stakes which barely make a mark in your yard. We will respect your yard and work hard to make sure your lawn or flower beds will not be damaged.
We want to make this a fun experience for you and us! We ask a few things…
We will do our very best to set up in all weather conditions. Normal rain or light snow is not a cause for a cancellation. However, in the event of inclement weather or if it is unsafe, we will not be able to set up any yard displays. If this occurs, we will promptly contact you to discuss set up options. If weather prevents us from being able to set up, a full refund will be provided. Inclement weather includes lightning, thunderstorms, flooding, heavy snow, ice storm or extremely frozen yard, tornado, high wind and any other Act of God that would put us or our yard displays in danger. Wind must be severe enough to impact the stability of the signs to cause a cancellation. If weather prevents normal pick up time (24 hours), we will pick up the following day when conditions are safer. Thank you for understanding.
