I had been renting from Almar for years and recently needed some linens for a last minute event so I figured I would just stop by and pick them up from their store. Sadly, the store location was beyond disgusting. For starters, the building is in a creepy, remote location. There is a note on the office door that says "BEWARE OF DOG" which is not the most inviting thing to see. The office itself was this small, depressing room with very dim lighting. There were a few desks all covered with tons of papers and trash. They also had what looked like a dog's food bowl in the middle of the floor when you first walk in. This place really needs some fixing up. Sorry Almar, I will be going elsewhere from now on.
Let me start off by saying, I rented with Almar one time and that will be the last time I work with them. I rented the pretty gold ballroom chairs for my brother's engagement party. Placing the order was the easy part, getting the chairs was a whole other story. First, we specified a delivery by 1pm and the chairs came a little after 3pm. I asked the driver why the chairs had arrived so late and he simply answered "we have other orders ma'am" abd then continued having the guys bring in the chairs. More than half of them came chipped and some even had legs that were a bit shaky. On top of that, more than half of the cushions were completely dirty and wrinkled. NEVER AGAIN, not worth your time. Go to Hodges, they are literally 20 mins away and their rental equipment is in far better condition than Almar's.
This is the third time I have used Almar and I have to say, I would never use anyone else. They are fabulous. We rented a huge tent and the men who erected it were very considerate of the surroundings, we had a party and used the dishes and glasses and they delivered exactly when they said they would and told us to put the things outside for the next day and they spirited them away. Now, I needed a Red Carpet for an event and the owner himself delivered it. It was great. Clean, exactly the size and we were all thrilled. Thanks so much for all your help in making my events just so wonderful
