So you’re planning the perfect wedding, tradeshow, fundraising gala, festival, or corporate event, and need the assistance of a rental company. You’re not alone! Event planning is a tough job for even the most seasoned event planner, so why not take any extra help you can get? Hiring a party rental company to assist with the setup and takedown of your event, as well as source anything you may need for the event is a great way to remain stress free and put the responsibility in someone else’s hands so you can focus on everything you need to do leading up to the event. Here are some things to consider when looking for the perfect rental company to handle your event:
A rental company that fits within your budget is a must-have, but working with a rental company whose prices seem too good to be true might be because they are. Be sure to do your research before committing to a company for your event. Speak with former customers, read reviews and testimonials, and don’t hesitate to inquire about their pricing if it seems too low or high than other companies you’ve looked into.
Before committing to one event rental company, be sure to inquire about their experience. If you’re hosting a tradeshow but the event rental company you’re speaking with has no experience in trade shows or floor plans, you may want to consider working with a company that does. Be sure to read reviews, look for any negative comments, and review testimonials from customers. This is typically the best way to get an honest gauge of the quality of the company.
Does the company offer the kind of party rental equipment you’ll need for your event? If they have a variety of bouncy castles but you’re hosting an elegant wedding, you may want to keep looking for a company that offers equipment more in-line with your event. Many event companies offer procurement as a service, so even if you don’t see what you need initially, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they can find what you’re looking for. Which brings us to…
Is the rental company you’re speaking with well connected? If they don’t have something you’re looking for, make sure they know someone who does. For example, we offer procurement services so our clients don’t have to find several different companies to meet all of their needs. If they work with us and we don’t have something they’re looking for, we know someone who does, and we’ll take care of the coordination, delivery, and takedown of the product!
Was the company representative professional, respectful, and enthusiastic about your event? Did they talk about your event as if it was your own? Would you feel comfortable working with them on a long-term basis, addressing any questions or concerns? These are all important things to consider when making your decision, as you’ll be spending a lot of time working with this company and you want to ensure they have your best interest in mind!
