Finding the Best Birthday Party Rentals

if you have a young child, throwing him or her a birthday party to remember at least once is every parent’s duty. Sure, it may be expensive, and you may become so stressed your hair starts to fall out, but the look on your kid’s face as he or she bounces up and down in a bounce castle or eats handfuls of cotton candy from a vendor is one of the great things about being a parent. But how do you find the best birthday party rental companies in your town?


If you want a truly amazing and stress-free experience, you will want to look up as many reviews as you can. All too often people pick the first company they see (often because they waited until the last minute), resulting in a bad experience because they didn’t properly research their track record. Word-of-mouth, online review sites, and the tried and true practice of asking questions is the best way to ensure that your birthday party rental goes off without a hitch.

When you’ve narrowed down a few places, you should visit each one to take a tour of their showroom and to inspect the quality of the items you intend to rent. If you’re hiring actors who intend to dress up as various characters, then you should request to meet with each one to ensure that all of them are courteous and professional. Nothing says “bad day” like finding out the clown you hired is really a drunk. As such, you should always rent an actor from a reputable company, as opposed to an independent contractor.

If it’s not a surprise party, you should speak with your child about what he or she specifically wants at their party. Not only will this help you narrow down which company to rent from, it lessens the risk of a disappointed child - and stressed out parent - when the big day finally arrives.
