Chairs are essential in the event rental world, after all, it’s hard to have an event without anywhere to sit down.
If you’re planning on renting chairs out for events, it’s important to know what kind of events and venues you will be accomodating.
Some quick research about local venues and event spaces can give you key information on how many chairs to purchase.
If you notice that the venues in your local vicinity tend to be small wineries and hotels, you may not need to buy hundreds of chairs. Look into the event space capacities, and work from there.
Another way you can research your local events, is trying to get in contact with some local event or wedding planners.
Sending a quick email to a few planners letting them know you’re a new company hoping for local advice, and asking the average event size in the area might yield some responses.
You never know, you might get ignored, but you could also gain valuable information and even make connections with some of the planning companies you might see or even work with in the future.
Once you’ve gathered enough information about the events and venues in your area, you may feel more ready to make an informed decision on the quantity of chairs for your purchase.
Keep in mind that the larger quantity chairs you have, the wider range of events you can accommodate. However, like previously mentioned- if your local spots only hold 75, you might not need 400 white plastic folding chairs.
Lastly, when purchasing a bulk amount of folding chairs, it’s always a good idea to have a few extras on hand just in case you get a few chairs back broken after an event.
This way, you’re never short for events waiting for new chairs to ship out. We suggest having between 1-2 chairs for every 50 you have on hand, for those quick exchanges.
