Rentals at L.M. Townsend Catering in Cooperstown NY


Rental companies offer a wide variety of services and equipment from the simple to the extravagant. Company brochures list supplies and policies. All accept credit cards and will ask for a deposit. Once contracted to cater your event, we are happy to provide you with a list of your needs. You may choose to send it on to several rental companies for competitive bids. However, although some companies are more expensive than others, their prices reflect a higher quality of services. We recommend that you visit the company to review photos of tents, lighting options, and to choose specific patterns of china and silverware.

For off-premise events, our events planner will provide you with a complete list of rentals required for your party. Our planner is also available (on an hourly basis) to handle all aspects of rentals including collecting estimates, revising as necessary, creating a floor plan and a computer animated drawing of your event, and checking in the rentals when they arrive at the chosen location.

Rental costs may be paid directly to the provider, and they most often do require credit card information to secure the reservation. There will be an additional fee charged for rental items delivered and returned by Townsend Catering. Paper and plastic products in any color are also available for your party at a nominal charge. The Caterer includes all buffet and stations equipment and décor including candles, plus platters, chafing dishes, serving utensils, trays, baskets, cooking pots and pans, charcoal for grills, service trays, water pitchers, coffee carafes and bar equipment.

Rental of some equipment including stoves, grills, propane burners, rolling racks, convection ovens and warming ovens may be necessary according to menu choices, with those charges billed to the Host. The Host is responsible for any loss, breakage, or destruction of rental properties caused by the Host, guests, facility employees, service personnel or any unknown person.
