When planning an event, everything has to work out perfectly. Aside from the venue and the food, you need to find the perfect equipment, furniture, as well as decor for your event. Needless to say, you have to be knowledgeable (and vigilant!) when searching for the best events rental company.
So here are a few tips:
1. Look into the rental company’s reputation.
Find reviews from real people. It’s easy to fake online reviews nowadays so you have to be careful when reading them. Take reviews with a grain of salt. Is the person just complaining about something the rental company doesn’t have any control over or was it a legitimate complaint? It may be better to look at sites where the identity of the reviewer is known or verified, like Facebook reviews. You can also ask for feedback and recommendations from your friends and relatives.
2. Evaluate their responses and customer service.
Great companies value their customers’ input. When looking for a rental company for your event, find one that replies promptly, and makes sure you are both on the same page. Open communication is the key to the success of the partnership.
3. Check out their products.
They should provide clean, quality products and/or services. It doesn’t have to be the most expensive or top of the line, as long as it is at par with what they promised and/or what you’ve agreed on.
Visit their office and check the furniture and equipment available on site. Evaluate the quality of their items on stock. Check if the tables are balanced. You should also make sure that the linens don’t have stains on them.
4. Know what’s included in the package.
When they say complete package, what does that exactly include? Will the tables and chairs include the linen and chair covers? Ask for detailed descriptions. Read the fine print before signing any contract.
5. Assess their rates.
Just because it seems to be a good deal, doesn’t mean you should get it right away. If it looks too good to be true, most likely it really is.
Their rates should be competitive and should be at par with the quality of their products and services. However, don’t be afraid to check for deals either. Just be cautious because it’s better to be safe than sorry.
