Renting vs. Buying: 6 Reasons its Better to Rent for your Event
Updated: Mar 21
What's Better for your event?Renting or Buying? A great question anyone planning an event should ask themselves,
In this article, I will provide you with 6 reasons why, in my opinion, Renting is the Much SMARTER choice over Buying/Purchasing your item, when putting on any event.
1. No NEED to Worry about the available Storage Space.
REALLY Think about it, Any item purchased has to be able to be stored somewhere, right? How much space you think you'll need available while also being accessible/convenient? Chairs, Tables, Linens, etc., they ALL can take up quite a large amount of space. Space most people do not have a whole lot extra of. do you really want to have to pay to store these items. Items you most likely won't even use more than once or twice? Basically? storage is definitely is a big factor to take into consideration.
Even if you buy the cheapest chairs and tables you can find, Costs are going to add up when trying to accommodate 50-200 people. Plus think of all that time spent on trying to find such a "deal". And yes, you could try and just sell them after you use them, but finding a buyer is not definite and takes a lot of time and effort to do so. With rentals, you only pay a small fee for the one-time use for your event, which is a fraction of the price it would be to purchase.
3. Easy Delivery & Pickup.
The time and energy it takes to set up tables and chairs can be stressful and take away from where you need to be on a special day. Fortunately, Bryant’s Rent-All offers assistance with transportation and set-up if you choose them for table and chair rentals.
4. Don't have to Wash or Clean ANYTHING.
After a Huge event, the last thing anyone wants to do is clean up. Renting means, for once, you don’t have to. From pre-set up to time for clean-up, the rental company will take care of washing/cleaning everything you rent for you. From dishes to linens (and trust me laundering linens is a battle all its own). this will Give you a whole lot more free time to enjoy with your guests.
With renting you are basically recycling by using an item, returning it, then it goes out again else where leaving less need for making more of these items from wood and other materials that economically we should reserve.
6. Everything's Available ALL in one Place.
Here at Southwest Hospitality, You can get everything you NEED in one place. No more shopping all over to find just a little here and a little there and multiple different online orders. Save yourself the stress & RENT.
Just Remember to also ask yourself One Important Question:
Will I NEED it again??
