What People are saying about McLean-Sherwood:

“Everything that I rented looked completely brand-new and my guests were so impressed with all of the products. I would not have been able to have this party without you!”

“McLean’s delivered the rentals with ease, in the exact place, tents erected perfectly and frankly, in record time given the time of day and spitting down with rain. The level of customer service and dedication to the task at hand was second to none.

Covid-19 Update May 25

Posted: May 25, 09:59 AM Permanent Link

We’re open again! The truth is, we were never really closed. We understand that many of the events that were planned in May and June have either been cancelled or postponed but we are hopeful that we can get this virus under control enough that we will be able to go ahead with many events beginning in July in some form or another. With this positive perspective, we have decided to open our showrooms for browsing and planning at selected times throughout the week. At both our Brampton and Orangeville locations, you may visit from 10am to 1pm Monday through Friday. Obviously, limitations on the number of people in the store will be in affect and we will be taking extra precautions to protect our clients and staff against Covid-19.

If you don’t feel the need (or want) to visit us in person, our staff is still available on the phone or via email to help plan your every event. Some things we’ve been helping out with during this pandemic include supplying extra cooking equipment and food warmers to long term care facilities, providing shelter for offsite kitchens and celebrating milestone birthdays with our flamingos on front lawns.
When you need us, we are here for you!
Stay Safe.

McLean Sherwood and Covid 19

Posted: Mar 16, 12:38 PM Permanent Link

There is a host of uncertainty around the world right now concerning Covid 19. The phrase “in an abundance of caution” has been heard over and over again. At McLean Sherwood we are taking a similar approach. Along with extra care measures being taken in the cleanliness and sanitation of our warehouse and equipment, we have also decided to close on Saturdays both our Brampton and Orangeville offices to allow our staff to be at home more during this outbreak. We don’t know how long this will last, but we hope to resume Saturday hours as soon as we can. We are still open Monday thru Friday from 9am until 5pm in Brampton and 10am until 5pm in Orangeville. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
We wish everyone good health and safety through these trying days.

Christmas is coming!

With the snow starting to fall, many people are already starting to think Christmas – and with Christmas, comes parties!
If you happen to be the lucky person that gets to plan your holiday gathering, either at home or within your company, consider taking some pressure off by renting our table packages. Our basic package includes a table, chairs, tablecloth, napkins and simple place setting for 10 people. It’s great for companies who are looking to be more environmentally friendly and wish to reduce the waste of paper and plastic. Everything comes clean and table ready. We can deliver and pick up and as always…. we do the dishes!!
Whether it’s a staff lunch for 200, traditional Christmas turkey dinner, international pot luck, or fully catered feast, we can take the worry out of seating everyone comfortably for the occasion!

Oh, and if you’re looking for food, we work with plenty of excellent caterers that would be happy to serve. Check out our Links & Resources tab under About Our Company.

Keeping Our Cool!

Keeping Our Cool!

Introducing our newest rental inventory item – the Evaporating Cooling System. It may be cold outside right now, but it gonna get hot! This unit is used to provide refreshingly cool air to tent functions or outdoor events. A 36” fan draws the hot air through a water soaked filter that cools it before circulating through the tent. So this summer, before it gets too hot, considering renting “cool”!

Christmas Is Coming!!

We’ve turned the corner on December 2018 and it’s time to start thinking about that turkey dinner! As with most Canadian Christmas traditions, we gather together with family around the table and enjoy a delicious meal to celebrate the holidays. Many times it’s turkey, but you may also see ham, chicken, pheasant and even salmon!

In all cases, you have many mouths to feed and the issues of where everyone will sit and “do we have enough place settings for each invited guest?”, will pop up. Here at McLean Sherwood we can help with that. Extra tables and chairs so everyone has a place to sit and matching china and silverware regardless of how many. We can even supply you with a beautiful Christmas tablecloth or runner to complete the table. Around here we say; “You bring the food and the people, and we can provide the rest!”

And the best part is always….We do the dishes! Just pack everything up in the containers they came in and we’ll pick it up dirty. No more spending extra time in the kitchen washing dishes. Go enjoy your guests knowing that it’s all looked after at our end. Give us a call to see all that we can do for you!
