Need a better idea of what to expect? Read on. Once you determine to invest in marketing the space, think Relics first, contact us, and we'll create a proposal with pricing for you.
Don't have a stager? Although we work directly with homeowners and real estate professionals, we highly recommend hiring a stager. Why? Think of the stager as your consultant and/or general contractor for your staging project. The stager not only advises on cosmetic changes to the home, but also may do any of the following: procure subcontractors (i.e. electrician &/or plumber for any lighting &/or cosmetic plumbing updates, painters &/or carpenters &/or landscapers for any interior &/or exterior updates, etc), handle the contracts and appointments, coordination, details, and scheduling for the entire staging project and ensure everything runs smoothly from start to finish, while our rentals & decor make things picture perfect.
In a hurry?! We've got this! Contact us ASAP.
Base Rental Rates & Reservations:
Pricing structure with a two-month staging minimum:
1st month = base rental rate + installation
2nd month = 1/2 base rental rate
3+ months = base rental rate per month
Installation includes delivery, unpacking, setup, and styling/placement of all the furniture and details, plus dismantling & retrieval at the end of the rental period.
Daily prorated rates can be applied.
For the trade, please contact us to learn about our exclusive benefits for approved trade professionals. For a purely RVR-curated and installed staging project, the total amount for the staging order, excluding mileage fees and broker open services, will not exceed 1% of listing price, and also includes professional detailed images of the final look and marketing through our online channels and site visit required.
Pricing is for rentals to be used for staging purposes only. See extended rental/leasing rates for rentals to be used for

Broker Open Services:
Kick your open house up several notches with curated food and beverage service and decor to make the best first impression. Whether you just need a few things or need our full services of installation, hosting, and clean-up for your open house, contact us to get started or check out our Pricing Guide for Events. Please note that our full services (with hosting and clean-up) are only available to our professional staging clients.
We charge a mandatory non-refundable 10% Limited Damage Waiver for delivery orders and 15% Limited Damage Waiver for will-call orders to cover use & lovin' (aka normal wear & tear: small nicks, small spots, small scratches, etc.). However, accidents happen. Things get misplaced. Dishes get dropped. It rains. The client is responsible for gross mishandling or negligence of our rentals, including careless packing for transport, damage from inclement weather, or rentals & equipment not returned. Insert frowny face emoji.
Any irreparable or unreturned tabletop items will be five times the rental fee. Unless covered by the Limited Damage Waiver, all other items' repair & replacement costs will be determined by an RVR-chosen repairer/appraiser. See FAQ #23 for more info.
Installation/Dismantling vs Will-Call:
With their attention to detail, our logistics team is THE BEST! Whether you need us to just deliver and pick up or you need complete installation & dismantling of your order, the prices vary based on distance, physical size of order, level of service needed, and scheduled times. See FAQs #6, 9-12, & 17 and here for more info.
Base service rates per load are as follows:
Chicago: $395 (inc. tolls)
Door County: $545
Accommodations may be required for long distance staging locations. Please ring us or write us to inquire about our rentals and services for Wisconsin, out of state, and abroad.
Will-call is NO CHARGE during normal business hours for orders with base rental rates over $250. For orders with base rental rates under $250 in rentals and for after hours will-call appointments, additional fees apply. See FAQ #14 for more info.
We gotta do it. Unless you're tax-exempt so send over your tax-exempt certificate prior to reserving your order and we'll take it off.
