Product


Does CORT only rent brand new furniture?

Most of CORT's rental inventory has been rented by other customers. CORT's quality control process ensures every piece of furniture we deliver to you has been thoroughly cleaned and is in great condition, or we won't rent it!

What are your safety and sanitation procedures?

CORT Events cares about your health and safety. We have enhanced the process and frequency used to clean and disinfect our products before and after each rental, and continuously update our protocols to match the most stringent of official guidelines. Certain products also feature an antimicrobial finish. For more information on our protocols for battling COVID-19, click here.

If I like the furniture, can I buy it?

We do not sell our current inventory, but when furniture has reached the end of its rental life cycle, we sell it at a CORT furniture outlet. Visit one of our furniture outlets to see what’s available in your area.

What type of power do I need for your powered products?

Client is responsible for providing labor and an electrical power source to the furniture with a surge protector. One 110V power source is required for every charging panel. CORT does not provide surge protectors or extension cords for plug in products. Please visit the product’s detail page for more information.

How does personalization work?

A number of CORT products can be personalized with the color, graphic, logo of your choice or it can be turned into a whiteboard surface. Client must have usage rights to the artwork (i.e., company-owned logo, license purchased for stock images, etc.) and associated product must be included on same order.

Ottoman slipcovers and pillows are considered a purchase and client can keep them post event. Ottoman slipcovers only fit CORT ottomans, which would need to be rented each time the slipcovers are used.

Do you provide CAD models for your furniture?

Yes, we provide 2D, 3D High Poly, 3D Low Poly and Sketchup files for all of our products. You can download these from the individual product pages or by category on our Model Library Page.

Does CORT provide space planning assistance?

Yes! Our account executives serve as your personal design consultants and can collaborate and help you plan your event using CORT Events’ space planning tool, powered by Social Tables, available for free here. Design in 2D and instantly see your vision come to life in 3D renderings.
