Event Rental FAQ’s

Rental Policies

Cancellation Policy/Deposit
To reserve a rental date or dates, a non-refundable deposit and signed rental agreement is required. Client understands and agrees that Sugar Space will not book other clients during clients reserved time once deposit is received by Sugar Space. In the event that Client cancels the rental time slot(s) or fails to attend show up on rental date, for any reason, Sugar Space suffers losses that are difficult to ascertain. As such, Client agrees that, in the event of cancelation by Client, such deposit shall be forfeited by Client and paid to Sugar Space as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. Client and Sugar Space agree that deposit amount is reasonable. The paid deposit will be applied towards your final bill.

Renters who fail to show up for their reserved time will be charged for the full rental. All clients must make note of the date, time, and with whom they cancelled in order to receive credit.

30 days cancellation required when booking more than 6 total dates or 6+ weeks in advance. If renter fails to notify or cancel before that, they will be charged for the full scheduled rental time.
