Awesome Service
They are amazing! We deal with them several times a month and they are always prompt and the products clean and well maintained.
Terry is excellent!!

Excellent service from beginning to end
Darek gave us excellent advice about the tents and heaters for a garden party in November. The guys who put up and took down the tents, as well as delivered the extra walls, were all highly professional. Equipment was clean and in good shape, and the service was excellent.
Would use Gervais again in a minute, and would highly recommend them to anyone planning an event.

Thank you
George,

OK – based on the email below I’d marry you if I wasn’t already! ;) Basically have my head on my desk with a tent floorplan underneath.

THANKS SO MUCH for the breathing room – could really use it tonight.

Will review with a clear head and get it over asap.

Phil was kind of expecting to work – so I told him he could go by and see how things are going. Think he was happy to be a part of it. His health has been really poor so he can’t currently do the onsite events – but this keeps him in the game a little. (I know you’d be fine without him but never hurts to have some extra support onsite if they need anything.)

As usual – Gervais is our favourite event partner! (Seriously – never any drama with you guys – service is unmatched against any of our partners - amazing! A GIANT THANK YOU TO YOU AND YOUR TEAM AS WE TRULY COULDN’T DO IT WITHOUT YOU. I STAND ON THE SITES WHEN THE TENTS ARE IN AND LOOK AROUND AND GO – WOW, WITHOUT GEORGE & GERVAIS I TRULY DON’T KNOW WHAT WE’D DO. I KNOW THIS WAS A CRAZY BUSY TIME FOR YOU AND YOU DIDN’T HAVE TO TAKE OUR JOBS. APPRECIATE THAT YOU NOT ONLY TOOK THEM – BUT GAVE US THE USUAL STELLAR SERVICE ALWAYS MAKING US FEEL LIKE WE WERE A PRIORITY. AND YOU’RE A GRACIOUS RESOURCE (EVEN IN A TIME CRUNCH) WHEN WE NEED INSIGHTS OR INFORMATION OR JUST SOMEONE TO RANT TO…BECAUSE YOU GET IT. ;) WHEN I RETIRE IM COMING TO WORK AT GERVAIS!!

Hope you know that we always unreservedly recommend friends and colleagues to Gervais…and I’ll get you an amazing Google review.) 

Have a GREAT weekend!

Great rental company
Darek from Gervais took exceptional care to make our outdoor event extremely well executed. The rentals and service were excellent. Darek also provided very useful guidance and advice to ensure that our event was a success.

Thank you
Hi Harrison,
Just wanted to extend a big thank you for making my first rental with you so easy. It was such a great experience from beginning to end!
I'm assuming your guys will pick up the items on Monday sometime between 9am and 1pm, correct?
Also, wanted to let you know that one of the champagne glasses went missing. I believe someone threw it in the garbage stupidly but we couldn't find it anywhere. Please let me know how much I owe you for the glass. Sorry about that.
Thanks again!
Andrea

Talent and Skills Summit 2016 - Thank you!
Hello all,
I am about a week late with this note, but wanted to ensure that I sent along a huge thank you to each and every one of you for your varying contributions to the Talent and Skills Summit that took place in the CRWC last Wednesday, January 20.

Over 300 guests came together to discuss education, training and skills development in our current economy, and I believe we were able to showcase and celebrate many aspects of our amazing university and college to some influential leaders.

Planning an event of this size and scope is never easy, but with the willingness and expertise that each of you offered to Samantha, Pamela and I, we were able to meet and exceed the MTCU and other key stakeholders expectations. This makes me extremely grateful, and proud to work for an institution that can so easily bring together students, faculty, and department representatives to showcase the talent and skills we have right here on campus!

Thank you is just not enough for the efforts put forth, but THANK YOU anyways!
And please, extend our appreciation to any individuals I may have missed as I am sure many more were involved along the way.

Amy

Hi Cleveland
Comments:

- Having you take my call on a Sunday for a Monday event was amazing! I can tell you one of your competitors did not offer that service and because of that you will always be my first call in the future.
- The cart that the rental supplies came in made moving it to our location really easy.
- My only issue was when I called to confirm pick up time and location the after-hours emergency number was my only option. When that person called me back it did not seem that they had my rental information and frankly did not understand why I was calling.
- Seeing you confirm my email made me feel confident that the rental goods would be picked up an not lost. Thanks for that.

Working in News I’m never given the opportunity to really plan events in advance. I am mostly reacting to things. When the PMO’s office called us with their request it gave me very little time to pull things together. With your help it was possible. Thanks for answering the phone on a Sunday afternoon and making it work.

Thank you
Hi Darek,

Thanks so much for asking. The tent worked really well. I had my contractor build a wooden vestibule that went right up to the edge of the tent which made it all very cosy.

Your installer indicated that, as a result, we did not need the need and he indicated that it would be a waste and that he would have you delete that from the bill.

The heaters just cranked out the heat beautifully and there was plenty light with the lights that went up. Your fellows worked efficiently in getting it up and in retrieving everything on Monday.

Should I ever decide to have another blowout of a party, I promise I will call you first. I will also ensure that friends and my event planning, daughter in law, give you a call. Your assistance and honesty were invaluable.

Rental THANK YOU
Hi Laurie – just wanted to let you know how well it all went with our rental order.

This was my first time using Gervais and I must say that it was a very simple, seamless process. From ordering, pickup and drop off, everyone was very helpful and pleasant.
Thanks so much – I am sure we will be using your services again.

Regards.

Hey Harrison,

I just wanted to thank you again for your support and help in providing our event with CoatCheck. It made a huge difference to the experience of the attendees. We've released our "thank you sponsors" poster to our social media. Attached is a copy.

Thank you again and I hope we can collaborate again in the future.

Sincerely,

Trade Show Booths
I've been renting from Gervais for the past 5 years for a charity event I help organize. Their staff is amazing -- very flexible and always on time. Their setups are precise and professional; I would recommend you giving them a call to get a quote for your next trade show / vendor show.

Hi Darek
We would have no hesitation what- so -ever to recommend Gervais party Rentals for any formal function and certainly if someone wanted a tented venue!! (As a matter of fact, we had a guest ask us if we would consider letting them use our yard next summer for their wedding ) ?

It was amazing to watch your highly skilled crew install the deck over the pool and erect that giant tent!! Your team has obviously worked together very well for some time. The crew knew each other’s needs as the installation process progressed. For every obstacle or challenge they met, they found a solution. They started 8:10 am and by 7:30 pm, the entire process was finished and we were ready to party! Simply amazing!

The dishes, glasses, chairs, tables and table cloths were perfectly packed and the caterer and bar tender were delighted.

And, I cannot forget to thank you personally for the great assistance you were (and the rest of the admin team too) from the first time you came to the house in early January! You certainly know your business well.

The deck/dancefloor and tent over the pool were overwhelming to our guests! The bride’s eyes popped when she saw the tent going up! Here first words were: “Classy”!!

Thanks again very much. I will give you lots of notice if we do it again sometime! Take care!!
Please, feel free to use us as a reference if required. 

Best regards,
Katie Kortekaas
