Chicago Table Rental How to get the best deal on renting tables for your event in and around Chicago.

Any event needs tables and chairs to keep their guests comfortable. There's a lot of options to choose from, depending on what type of event you're planning, your budget, and your stylistic preferences.


Chicago Table Rental Tips

There are many different types of tables to choose from when you want to rent tables for your next event.  Here is a list of the types of tables:

Types of tables you can rent from a Chicago party rental company:

  • Rectangle tables / banquet tables – typically in 4, 6, and 8 foot lengths and 30 inches wide
  • Conference tables – typically 6 and 8 foot lengths and 18 inches wide
  • Round tables – typically 4, 6, and 8 foot diameters
  • High boy tables – typically 42 inches tall and 30 or 36 inches round.
  • Cocktail tables – typically 30 inches and 30 or 36 inches round.
  • Serpentine tables – typically 4 feet long and curved shape.

When you rent from a Party Rental Company, their largest selection of tables will be folding tables.  The reason rental companies specialize in folding tables is for storage and ease of delivery.  The goal for the rental company is to get as many tables in a single truck as possible.  If you select a table that is not folding, you will pay much more money for it due to the space it takes up in the warehouse and the difficulty in transporting it.  Wooden farm tables are a good example of tables which typically do not fold up.

If you are looking for tables to rent for your event you have come to the right place.  There is much to know prior to deciding what table and what company to place your order with.  Here we will give you all the information you need to know to rent the right tables for the right price and from the right company.

The most requested table rented is an 8 foot banquet table.  These are the standard for any rental company.  These tables are rented for festivals, company picnics, backyard parties and trade shows.  Most folding tables are made of wood tops with steel folding legs.

In the rental industry, the nomenclature for rating the quality of equipment in inventory is based on the first 3 letters of the alphabet.  The letter ‘A’ represents something that is new and would be considered wedding quality.  The letter ‘B’ represents used condition but too scratched to be used for a wedding or to pass as new looking.  The letter ‘C’ represents Festival quality.  This means it goes out to public events and sits in the elements of the outdoors on a regular bases.

If you are contacting a Party Rental Company to rent tables, you must realize the tables are used and will show some wear and tear.  If you require new looking tables, you must ask for them.  If you are not specific about the quality of the table you need, you will get the standard ‘B’ or ‘C’ table as the ‘A’ quality tables are saved for weddings and requests only.

Top things to ask for when renting folding tables:

  • Do you have any ‘A’ quality tables available?
  • Can you guarantee me there are no signs of rust on the chair?
  • Check online reviews prior to calling.  Look for complaints on the quality of tables and other rental equipment.
  • If their online reviews are not 4 star or higher, it is a clear indication they are not focused on customer satisfaction.
  • In the rental industry, you typically get what you pay for.  Beware of going with the lowest price company with few to no online reviews.

When you rent tables in Chicago or the suburbs, remember to ask these questions to get the best quality for the money spent.  Folding tables can be used for Chicago Weddings, Chicago Graduation parties, and School ceremonies at Chicago schools.
