Select categories below to view answers to our most commonly asked questions:
Q: When should I consider making my tailgate party reservation?
A: We always suggest getting your tailgating reservations in as early as possible. All of our rentals are first come, first serve. Popular games, concerts or events often book out several months in advance and in some cases a whole year in advance. We will do our best to accomodate all rental requests when and where inventory is available.
Q: What is the process for booking a rental?
A: A signed rental agreement and 50% of the agreement total is required in the form of a non-refundable (see below for exceptions) deposit to secure your reservation. You can add or reduce your guest count up to 5 days prior to your event.
Q: How can I pay for my event?
A: Man Cave Events accepts all major credit cards via our secure online payment processing portal along with check payments. Cash is not an acceptable method of payment. Sales tax is required to be collected on all applicable transactions.
Q: Is my 50% deposit refundable?
A: All deposits for reserving tailgating rentals, transportation and/or catering are non-refundable. You may apply a deposit to a future event if you should need to cancel after submitting a deposit. (Restrictions may apply. Based on availability.) COVID-19 related cancellations will receive full refunds on payments made as long as the cancellation is made no later than 5 days before the scheduled event date.
Q: What is the cancellation policy?
A: A 50% non-refundable deposit is required to reserve a tailgating package. Should you need to cancel after submitting your deposit, you must notify us 30 days prior to your event or you will be responsible for the full amount. For cancellations due to acts of god or terrorism, deposits will be refunded in the form of a credit for an event in the next 12 months.
Q: When is my remaining balance payment due for my event?
A: Full payment for your event, with all options and adjustments accounted for, is due no later than 3 days prior to your event. This ensures the day of your event goes smoothly and there is less for you to worry about. Your remaining balance invoice will be sent to you at the time of booking and again 15 days prior to your event.
Q: Is my tailgate rain or shine?
A: Yes, all tailgate parties are rain or shine with the exception of baseball games. We supply tenting for your group, however it might not be enough for full coverage during inclement weather. If full coverage is required, please be sure to request that as part of your rental package as additional costs may apply for the additional tent coverage. If your tailgate party begins and the game is subsequently postponed/cancelled, the client is responsible for the full amount. If cancelled in advance, deposit can be applied to another future event with MCE availability.
