You are free to select all additional vendors; they must be insured and licensed in the State of Tennessee to do the job that you hire them for and must abide by all of the rules outlined in the Rental Agreement. We are happy to make recommendations based on your event type.

Q. What’s the deal with the event insurance policy?
A. Our insurance and the vendor’s insurance policies protect The Mill & Mine and the vendors, but not you. To protect you in the same way on your event day, we require that you purchase “Day of Event” liability insurance. The insurance is available from your insurance agent, or on the web for a nominal fee. Your certificate is required by 21 days before your event. Exact requirements can be found in the Rental Agreement.

Q. How early can we arrive?
A. We require you to submit your day-of timeline 21 days in advance of your event for approval. Doors will open at 8AM on the day of your event unless we’ve made other arrangements. If additional days are needed for set-up or break-down, they may be purchased at a reduced rate based on availability. A prior request and approval must be given for any items from an event, including rentals, to remain in the building beyond the day of your rental.

Q. Can I swing by, pop over, drop in?
A. Unfortunately, no. The building is locked when not in use, and we cannot guarantee that there will always be someone on site.
