Although this is just our 2nd year doing professional decorating, Floating Phantoms has been in the Halloween business since 2002. (see Our Story for more information)
We are located in Carrollton Texas, but we will do installations anywhere in the Dallas area. For a full list of locations check out our city listing.
All Floating Phantoms installations are custom, so pricing is dependent on how large the graveyard is, what style of fencing you choose, and what extras you want. Please give us a call and we will be happy to schedule an appointment to discuss your needs.
Our installations are leased, for a fixed period of time. Decor packages include custom design, setup, all decorations and props, lighting, upkeep, take down, and cleanup. The clients do not own any of the items. This allows the client to change the decor each year. And each year we will be adding new scenes and products to our lineup, so you can have a completely different look year after year.
Absolutely NOT! Our fencing, tombstones and many of the props are either made by us, or custom crafted to our specifications. Floating Phantoms started business as a prop manufacture for the haunt industry, and we continue to make custom props for our decorating service.
We do use some retail products, but even those are modified to meet our specific needs. We really try to find very unique items that enhance our products.
In most cases no. However, we can discuss this with you during our design consultation.
Most likely no. We use commercial grade, low voltage, LED lighting that use very little current. As long as you have an electrical outlet outside, you are probably good to go.
No. We can do most installations without the need for you to be present. Once the installation is complete, we will schedule a time to meet with you and make sure everything meets your approval.
A typical installation will take 5-7 hours. Take down is usually 3-4 hours.
You will be dealing directly with the owner in most cases. We can be reached by calling: 214-432-6686.
We have a very limited number of installations that we can perform, and selection is based on first-come first-served basis. So the earlier you call the better your chances are of getting what you want. There will be a waiting list for any overflow, so if someone cancels, you could still have an opportunity to get an installation. But your best chance is to sign up NOW!
Currently, we are planning to do installations on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays, starting October 16th. This is on a first-come first-served basis.
Take downs will be on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and Mondays from November 6th through November 16th.
Not at this time.
25% down upon signing the agreement, 25% at the start of installation, and the remainder due within 3 days of installation completion. All down payments are 100% refundable before installation starts. However, once we start installation, all monies are forfeited if the client cancels. Any cancelation or incomplete installs due to fault of Floating Phantoms, will result in 100% refund.
A security deposit of $500 is also required before installation begins. This is to cover any damaged or stolen items, which are the responsibility of the client. If there is no damage, the security deposit will be 100% returned (or could be used to secure next year’s decorating).
Estimates are free.
Not at this time, but we are looking at adding that service, and possible party catering, in the years to come.
That is one of the many benefits of having Floating Phantoms do your Halloween decorating. Since you don’t own the props or décor, you don’t have to do the same thing year after year. You are free to choose any decorating package, and add any theme or extras you want. Keep the neighbors guessing as to want you are going to do for each Halloween!
Yes we do. Check out our Specials page for more information.
Floating Phantoms does everything for you, including coming over each night to turn the lights on . No, actually all of the lighting is setup on timers, so there is nothing you need to do.
