Oftentimes, we hear people say they found a cheaper service elsewhere. And as consumers, we can understand the impulse to save money. But when our clients say this to us, it’s our responsibility to explain what ‘cheaper’ really means when it comes to party equipment rental. Working with an inferior company could mean sacrificing professionalism, timeliness, cleanliness, insurance coverage… The list goes on and on.   In this post, we will discuss the truth of getting cheap party equipment rentals, why some companies can offer lower prices, why it is never a good idea, and what you should look for when considering working with a new party rental company. Stay tuned!

Inventory Quality and Safety

First, you must understand that not all party rental companies are created equal. Some companies may be able to offer lower prices because they do not carry the same type or quality of inventory as other companies.   It is not uncommon for cheap party rental companies to offer broken or malfunctioning equipment to their clients. Sometimes, this can be a hassle and inconvenience for the party host or guest. In other cases, it can be downright dangerous.

Customer Service Quality

Low-pricing event rental companies also may not have the same level of customer service or experience in the industry. When working with a new party rental company, be sure to ask about their experience, and make sure they are courteous, easy to get ahold of, and respond promptly.


Another reason some companies may be able to offer lower prices is that they are not adequately insured or licensed. This is a huge red flag and something you should consider when choosing a party rental company.

Equipment Cleanliness and Safety Procedures

Finally, some companies may be able to offer lower prices because they cut corners in other areas. For example, they may not clean their equipment properly, or they may not secure their equipment properly. This could lead to damage or injury at your event.


When doing your event or party planning, and before selecting a company, do your research and read reviews from previous customers. In addition, be sure to ask the company questions about their policies and procedures to ensure that you are comfortable with them. Most importantly, ensure that the company is adequately insured and licensed to protect you in case of any accidents or damages.   This will help you get a better sense of what to expect from the business and if it is one that you feel comfortable working with and can provide you with the level of service you are looking for.
