Prepping for Memorial Day & Other Outdoor Event Rentals
Memorial Day is a hugely popular weekend for weddings, graduations, and other get-togethers that require outdoor event rentals. Are you prepared to meet the holiday demand?
If you aren’t sure, there are a few items that you can easily go through to get your venue or rental business up and running during this busy season. No matter where you are in the country, right now is prime time for outdoor events, so ensuring that your outdoor event rentals (like market umbrellas) are ready-to-go is a crucial step.
As things start to heat up, you’ll want to take weather into consideration. Stay cool with our pro tips and make sure that your venue provides plenty of shady options like party tents and canopies for clients to rent. These “extra” options can be hugely lucrative by adding profitable line items to event invoices.
Next, it’s important to run through your current inventory of rental furniture like Chiavari chairs and folding banquet tables. Do you have enough? Are they clean? Does anything need to be repaired or replaced? It’s best to do this sooner rather than later in case you do need to order some additional items.
When inspecting your existing inventory of rental tables and chairs, you’ll want to look for a few things.
Appearance - is the powder coat chipping? Are there any scratches that need to be buffed out?
Sturdiness - do any joints need to be tightened? Are any support areas bent?
Miscellaneous - does everything still stack properly? Do you have enough to meet your anticipated demand?
For sturdiness, most of the time screws can be tightened and joints can be bolstered in just a few minutes to make everything as good as new. However, if you have any doubts about the durability of particularly old items, be sure to replace them right away. Check out our YouTube channel for tips on caring for your rental items.
