2. Ask if they have insurance coverage.
Be sure that the party rental company you are considering is insured. This indicates that they are responsible and very serious about their business. Although insurance is not always required, you shouldn’t take it step for granted. A lot of party venues require rental companies to be insured, and even demand that they be listed as additional insured on the certificate.
3. Look for signs of professionalism.
You can tell so much about a party rental company by what you find on their website. Is it professionally designed? Are there pictures of their products, and are they of premium quality? Do they display their company policies clearly? If it’s obvious that they have not spent enough time on their website, which is basically their online storefront, don’t think they will spend enough time to impress you as a customer.
4. See if they provide payment options.
Does the party rental company accept take credit cards or only cash? For a lot of people, this is an important factor. Definitely, credit cards offer great convenience that many consumers appreciate.
5. Inspect their equipment.
Of course, cleanliness of equipment is an absolute must. Ask them whether or not they sanitize their equipment and using what methods. If they give you a detailed answer, most probably, they’re telling you the truth.
6. Look for a license.
The party rental company you choose must be licensed to do business in the state where your event will be held.
7. Know the rules for delivery.
Finally, ask the company if they are going to deliver to your site or if you must pick up the equipment yourself. This is all about personal preference. If they won’t deliver and you are not happy with that, just look for another company.
8. Inquire about rates.
Prices should not make or break your decision to hire a party rental company, unless you can’t afford them, of course. Otherwise, always go with the best choice that suits your budget. This is one industry where you will actually get what you have paid for. There’s no need to overspend, but don’t skimp either.
