So here’s the update.
I’m sorry to say that Emily from K&J Party Rentals didn’t step up from the Yelp reviews and warnings. We never did receive a quote (or a response), despite calling her and leaving a voicemail and emailing her (even though she was supposed to emailing me with the address we left her). So she’s out of the running, and unfortunately, I can’t recommend her — if we couldn’t even get a quote from her the next day, let alone a week, then forget it.
We’ve decided to happily proceed with Patty’s Linen Rentals over San Diego Party Rentals.
Although SD Party Rentals was less expensive and the woman there was sweet and helpful, the fact that they didn’t set up the tables fully was a deciding factor.
Also, Patty’s was familiar with the location already and we had a great feeling that they would be going above and beyond to make sure it all went well.
So with that, we are confirmed with Patty’s. We’ve made some adjustments to the original quote, so although the total is $1240, this will probably adjust a few times.
Expenses so far:
Almost halfway through our budget but a big part of the planning is knocked out!
Very glad we found Patty’s Linens Rentals in National City, CA. Ask for Patricia!
