FAQ

We try to answer most of your questions in advance. However, if a question remains unanswered, please don’t hesitate to give us a call or send an e-mail.

Who do you rent out to?

We rent out to companies and individuals, for weddings, picnics, tea parties, dinners, trade fairs, events, film and photo shoots.

Which locations do you serve?

gotvintage is located in Berlin and rents out all over Germany and Europe. You can pick up most of our inventory in Berlin but we can also deliver it to you. Transportation costs are calculated on an individual basis, depending on volume and distance from Berlin. Please contact us for more information.

How long can I rent the items for?

Our prices include a rental period of three days: the day the items are delivered or picked up, the day of your event and the day of return. Of course, the term of lease can be extended, so please contact us for pricing on longer rental periods.

Can I hand-select every single piece in my desired collection?

Unfortunately, due to the size and scale of our collection, we are unable to allow clients to hand select each item. You can, however, tell us which styles or colours you prefer for your event and our experts will ensure you receive a suitable selection.

Do we have to clean the crockery/cutlery/glasses ourselves?

No. Given the age and delicate nature of the articles we will clean the crockery for you and this service is included in the rental price. Simply and carefully scrape off any food before packing the items. Ensure textiles are dry before packing.

Is cleaning of furniture/decoration/textiles included in the rental price?

No. We expect you to redeliver our furniture and decorative articles in clean condition. Candleholders have to be free of wax, do not use sharp objects for cleaning. In case of heavy soiling, as well as wax residues we will charge an additional cleaning fee.

What happens if I break or lose an item?

If you break or lose an item, we will deduct the replacement value (stated on the quote) from your refundable damage deposit. Please check the articles on receipt for completeness and damage.

Is there a minimum order quantity?

The minimum order quantity for private individuals is 150 Euro gross, excluding packing, delivery and shipping.

Can I make a reservation for the articles?

Due to high levels of demand we cannot offer reservations. Our principle is: First come, first served.

Do you deliver and collect the items directly to and from my venue?
