American Tent - 1909


Delivery charges are based on the mileage from our location on the near south side of downtown Indianapolis. This cost is contingent upon our crew being able to begin setup within 15 minutes of arrival at a pre-arranged location.
For example, parking lots must be free of all parked cars in the area that the work is to be done before the crew arrives.
A delay of crew charge will be assessed based on the labor cost per 15 minutes thereafter.
