for rental on an 8 tier acrylic cupcake stand (cost over $300)?

I also feel I should charge a deposit but I am not sure of the amount, do you charge the full amount 300 ? or less

I am new to this and would love any input.

Thank you

I am not sure on how much to ask. However, you need to ask yourself, if they damage the piece and I can not use it again, can I recoup my costs with their rental fees and deposit?

Personally I would ask for half the cost as a deposit. and then have a contract, that if damaged you will keep the deposit and they will need to pay the remainder of the fees, plus rental.

Or you can have them pay the whole deposit and take off the cost of the rental after it is returned....

I know someone will have some excellent advice for you!
