What are the items that get rented the most?

If you’re an event rental company or venue, your inventory of rental items has to be used again and again to make a profit. But how do you know what items you should invest in? With all of the different chairs and tables to choose from, it can be hard to know when to balance cost with demand.

Don’t sweat trying to figure out what people want — let the experts do that for you. From event chairs to the most in demand tents for outdoor events, here’s what the industry has shown that people want at their events.


Chairs

Chiavari chairs are far and away the most popular chairs in the rental industry — and they have been for years. With such a long history of demand, they are unlikely to get shifted from the top spot anytime soon. If you want to make the most bang for your buck while maximizing your ROI, you simply can’t go wrong with a good supply of Chiavari chairs.

Runner up: A supply of rectangular plastic folding tables is another solid choice for party rental companies. They are lightweight and inexpensive, although they tend to be used in more informal events or as buffet-style tables.

Tables

Since tables are much larger rental items, you always need to consider your space (if you have a permanent venue) as well as your storage capabilities. However, when it comes to the overall industry, we have found that the 60” round wood folding table continues to fit most people’s event needs. It’s sturdy, it fits a lot of people around it, and it’s classic. With a few of these in your inventory, you’ll be set up for success.

Tents

Every good party rental company will have at least one or two tents in their inventory. You simply never know when the weather will shift and coverage will be needed! For just such a situation, most people rely on the 15’ x 20’ pole tent to get the job done. It’s big without being cumbersome and is sturdier than a standard pop-up. Guests are certain to leave satisfied when the tent has done its job.

Runner up: The square version of the best-rented tent continues to be a wonderful alternative as well. A 15’ x 15’ pole tent gives you all the same benefits with a slightly lower cost up front, making it easy to make up the difference in rental fees.

Portable Dance Floors

What’s a wedding without a dance floor? With people spending more and more money on weddings nowadays, you definitely don’t want to miss any opportunities to rent out portable dance floors. The New England plank complete dance floor comes in a few different sizes, but never fails to make an impression.

Runner up: It’s a tie between the black and white dance floor and the Windsor Oak portable dance floor! Both of these options provide a classic aesthetic with the same high-quality material that can withstand night after night of parties, making them great long-lasting additions to your inventory.
