Party In A Box
Who are Tailgate Cruiser's partner caterers?
We deliver and set up the equipment and our partner caterers
deliver their delicious food.
- Party In A Box brings everything to you in
one convenient package.
- You tell us what you need and we take it from
- All you need to do is show up.
We have catering partners throughout Washington, DC and Northern Virginia with enough variety to satisfy just about every palate. You tell us your budget and the type of food you would like and we take it from there. We make our best effort to provide you with at least three options to choose from.
How much does
Party In A Box cost?
It comes down to
what you decide to order. We'll take your order and develop a per head pricing
schedule that includes the catered food and the rental equipment delivery and

How does group
funding work and how do we split the bill online?
By far it's the
easiest way for friends to pool money together online and split the bill.
We have partnered with Crowdtilt to provide the platform in which to
group fund your rental order. You don't need a PayPal account and we
don't ask for any financial information. You can use just a regular ol'
credit card to make it happen.
We set up
everything and just need some preliminary information:
- First, determine the
rental equipment you need for your party.
- Next, decide which
catering company you would like to use and how much food you want.
With those two
pieces of information we will set up a website specifically for your party with
a dollar goal for your group to reach - it looks something like this. You
and your friends start chipping in to reach that goal and you are only charged
if the goal is met. Nobody's credit card is charged if the group does not
meet the goal.

What are your Reservation, Cancellation and Deposit
Your equipment reservation will be held once you submit your
order. We have a 24 Hour Cancellation Policy meaning you will get a full
refund if you decide to cancel your order more than 24 hours in advance of the
scheduled delivery date. Cancellations inside 24 hours are subject to a
$25 cancellation fee. We will hold a $50 deposit for all rental orders.
The deposit will promptly be refunded once equipment is returned in
undamaged, good working order.
Which dates are you available?
Any time that you need the equipment. Our service is
ideally suited for those occasions where you just need the equipment for
an event and it doesn't necessarily have to involve tailgating - things like
backyard barbecues, lacrosse tournaments, soccer games, or family outings.
You name the place and we'll make sure you get the equipment.
Will the equipment fit into my car?
Obviously that depends on the amount of equipment you rent. To get a general idea of the space requirements, watch this video of us loading the equipment into a Toyota Prius.
What time will my equipment be ready?
We will have your equipment ready for delivery the day prior to
you needing it. Tailgate Cruiser comes to you! We deliver to your
home, hotel, work or other designated location. During the checkout
process you'll be asked to enter the date, time, and location for equipment
delivery and pick up. Pick up times are usually scheduled for the day
after the event.
Is food included or available for purchase?
Tailgate Cruiser does not sell food but we will help get it for
you. We focus on delivering the tailgating hardware to you so you don't
have to buy or clean it. We have partnerships with catering services that
will deliver the food and beverages to your doorstep.
Do I have to clean the equipment before I return it?
No. Have a great time tailgating and simply return the
equipment to us at the scheduled pickup time. We appreciate your courtesy
in taking care of the equipment.
What if it rains?
The tailgate rental agreement is in effect even if your event is
cancelled for weather. For weather cancellations, we will make our best
effort to grant customers full or partial credit to be used at a future date of
their choice (depending on the availability of rental equipment).
Unfortunately, we cannot refund the $25 delivery/pick up fee for parties
that are cancelled due to weather.
