When you begin your search for locating the best rental company to fit your needs, keep these things in mind:
The first phone call is very important!
When you make that initial call to speak with a rental company, pay very close attention to what they are saying and offering.
Are they only concerned with taking your order? Do they only want to know how many forks, spoons, plates, chairs and linens you need?
Or, are they looking to guide you and offer some event inspiration?
This initial conversation will tell you a lot about the experience you will have with your rental company.
Do they ask you to come to visit their showroom?
It’s really important to check out a rental company’s showroom prior to hiring them for your event.
You will want to see the showroom to get a feel for the rental company’s style.
Is the showroom decorated? Does it offer a lot of ideas? Does it feel blah? The vibe you receive from the showroom will more than likely become the vibe of your event.
Is the rental company open to discussing the vendors they often work with on events?
If a rental company is open to this topic and provides you with information regarding the established vendors they work with, you will get an idea of how efficiently they collaborate with other vendors which is important for your event organization and coordination!
Don’t Be Turned Off By Upgrading Options:
It may seem like a sales pitch when a rental company offers you additional options or higher priced upgrades but don’t be turned off so quickly!
The rental company may be trying to provide you with various ways to enhance your event. It’s entirely likely that their ideas, which may or may not be higher in price, are simply expanding upon the ideas you had for your event, offering you options you didn’t realize existed.
