PARTY RENTALS

Rentals for each machine range from $50 to $150 per event.  We do have a small, yet stunning selection of 1920’s and 1930’s non-working typewriters for display only for $35 each per event.  Every typewriter comes with a quick start user guide.  Renters are given three calendar days to pick up, use and return the typewriters per event.  For example if the event is on a Thursday, machine should be picked up on Wednesday and then returned on Friday. Pick up and delivery service is available for a small fee depending on quantity and location.

A deposit equal to ½ of our full, published retail price is required during the pick up of the typewriter.  The deposit will be returned to renter after the successful completion of rental agreement and return of the typewriter.
