How To Find Cheap Party Rentals

When you decide to shop at a party rental company, one of the first things on your mind is no doubt the price. As the items add up and you keep finding new things to include as you tour the showroom, the price gets higher and higher, making your daughter’s wedding or son’s graduation party far more expensive than you had hoped. Thankfully, like all things, there are ways to get a good deal and find cheap party rental companies in your town.


Before you settle on any one company, you will want to do ample research. Remember: if you sacrifice price, you are most likely going to sacrifice quality. As such, the first thing you should do is search online reviews and word-of-mouth reviews of the various party rental companies in your town to weed out the good and the bad. Thanks to the many features of online review sites, you can get a good idea of just how expensive each company is and the types of services they are.

Once you have settled on a set of companies, you should give them all a call, explain what you’re looking for, then get a quote. As you go down the line and call each company, keep a list of all the services you’re looking to use and their individual prices. Once you’re done with that, the best thing to do is tally everything up and find the lowest price. But what if the lowest price option doesn’t have everything you want?

Say for example one company has something you want, but it’s higher priced than a comparable yet different service at another company. Although many people don’t feel comfortable doing this, one of the best things you can do to save a quick buck is to see if they will price match or, depending on what else you need done, work with you on pricing to reach your budget. Most of these companies are well aware that planning an event is expensive, especially if you’re a parent and not a huge company, so many of them are willing to work with to find the best possible prices that match your vision.

On rare occasions you can find deals and coupons, which will allow you to receive a slight discount on the items you’re looking for. For example, some places might offer a 10% off sale on party tents during the summer. In order to find these deals, your best bet is to call the company directly and simply ask if they have any specials going on. Alternatively, you can also look for information concerning specials and discounts - as well as plenty of photos - on their webpages.
