Great service and equipment. The staff were great over the phone during planning, in person at their facility and when dropping off and picking up the equipment. An experienced company with great, straight forward policies and service.

We used Ocean Atlantic for our wedding this March. From out of state, we were able to quickly and easily communicate our needs, and all of our correspondence was prompt and professional. We rented tables, chairs, and even a punch bowl- everything was delivered and picked up on... Read More time and without incident. We would highly recommend them for your event needs!

I booked Ocean Atlantic Rentals for the beach ceremony chairs and reception chairs (with set-up and breakdown), as well as the place setting dishes and linens. Everything was seamless and super easy to book, thanks to the user-friendly website, and really friendly associates. I... Read More changed my mind a few times in the planning process and the associates were really easy to work with to make sure I was getting exactly what I'd hoped for in the end! The delivery and pickup processes were really easy too, and the delivery guys were really nice and friendly as well! The products looked great and I was so happy I picked Ocean Atlantic Rentals for our wedding! Thank you!!!

Samantha and Leah helped create an event of a lifetime! From day one of planning my wedding rentals with them, they both communicated information effortlessly, streamlined expectations clearly, and were infectiously courteous the entire time. Destination wedding planning can be... Read More challenging. Sam and Leah both articulated the importance of certain details about the specific venue chosen since it wasn't easily accessible to me, and also went above and beyond by enhancing the vision layout via a CAD drawing. The best part about that is I didn't even have to ask. They merely applied thoughtful customer service on their own and provided an impressive result in the end. Earlier in the planning process, they even sent samples of their linen choices available via mail with a fun card of congratulations attached! They both truly made me feel special and appreciated. Chad Miller and team were also incredibly helpful onsite during set-up and tear down days by smiling and providing cheerful energy amid the humid sun. Huge shout out to Chad and all the guys who physically labor over the inventory on a daily basis. Overall, OAER comes highly recommended as it's clear from my experience the entire team invests in you and your rental needs. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

We chose Ocean Atlantic based on their prices. We had a few price discrepancy issues along the way which were worked out but I did not like the fact that I could not change anything on my order 30 days out.

We rented chairs, glasses and table from these guys and everything was perfect! Great people to work with.

Headache and a half!

Be careful! I am an event planner for my job, but these people gave me more than my share of headaches. Thinking we were all squared away, then to find out just days before that things were misordered, wrong color, etc. "Too late to change, trucks loaded" was what I was told,... Read More when I said OK bring me the wrong stuff anyways, I was told no. Lots of running in circles, and lots of people - never worked with just 1 person.

We rented tables and chairs for the wedding and reception. They had the tables dropped off before 5pm the day before the wedding which made it nice to use for the rehearsal dinner too. Helped bring the tables in and set up instead of drop off and leave.

Horrible customer service!!

Rude, condescending, unhelpful office girls. Joe the guy that runs it is awesome but you only get him 10% of the time. They even charged my card for changes I told them not to make and argued to give me a refund.
