What to Consider When Choosing a Tent Rental Company

DSCN1876Planning an event, no matter what size can be a big undertaking. In order for your event to be successful, there are many things to consider. The best way to ensure you will get a high quality tent, delivered on-time, professionally installed and exactly as you envisioned, is to select the right tent rental company.

 

Here are a few things to consider when choosing a Tent Rental Company:

REPUTATION
Choose an established company that specializes in tenting and can assist you with all options from selection through installation. Find a company that has been in business for many years and understands the unique requirements of working in all types of venues, backyards, parks, private estates, streets, parking lots and more. Not all tent rental companies offer the same quality of tents, selection or (most importantly) expertise.  A lightweight frame or lightweight top may not protect your guests properly.  Following proper safety standards is very important. Some companies may not follow the installation procedures recommended by the tent manufacturer or may take other short cuts to save money.  Make sure the company is fully insured. Find a company that will contact the underground Utility Location Service prior to tent installation. In short, select a reputable company with a proven track record that will work hard to earn your long-term loyalty. The last thing you need are surprises or mistakes on the day of your big event.

30' x 60' Backyard Party TentQUALITY OF EQUIPMENT & SERVICE
Choose a company that has a wide selection of durable, high quality, clean tents and party equipment. There are various types of tents that serve distinct needs for specific kinds of events and situations. Your tent rental partner will help you choose the tent that meets your requirements.  Look for a full service rental company that provides a broad range of high quality rental equipment to meet your event needs. Planning your event will be easier if you work with fewer vendors.  In addition to high quality equipment, friendly and knowledgeable customer service, the company should provide prompt delivery and professional setup of equipment.

SHOWROOM & WEBSITE
A company with a showroom allows you to meet your rental partner and browse the types of equipment available. A visit to a showroom may also give you more insight about the company and provide some ideas that you might not have considered. It is always best to call for an appointment.  A company’s website may provide some insight into what the company is all about. Is the website well organized and informative? Are there photos of the types of events they have worked in the past? Does it reflect a reliable, experienced company that provides products and services for a wide range of clients? A company’s website can be a good reflection of the company philosophy.

DSCN1846PRICE
Prior to making contact, you should have a date, location, a good idea of your space and a vision. The available space and the type of surface help determine the type of tent. Your guest list and types of activities under the tent help determine the size. Pricing is typically based on the type of tent and the square footage of the tented area. Your tent rental partner can help with the rest of the equipment you will need along with the delivery and setup details. Be sure to get everything in writing and know what is included in the price. Make sure you discuss delivery dates and time. You don’t want someone showing up a day early for a surprise birthday.  Price will be a factor in your decision, but try not to hire someone based on price alone. One of the major differences between rental companies isn’t price, but the quality of equipment and customer service. Consider the kind of tent, equipment and the services offered. It might cost a bit extra to get the quality and service that you expect. It may be worth it to ensure your event is as stress free and successful as possible.

DSCN4721The most important thing is to find a reputable rental company that offers both quality and reasonable pricing and is willing to work with you to achieve your vision.
Considering this should help you make an informed decision and find the best tent rental company for your event.
