What can I expect?

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.

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. ‘B’ represents used condition but too scratched to be used for a wedding or to pass as new looking. ‘C’ represents Festival quality. This means it goes out to public events and sits in the elements of the outdoors on a regular basis.

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. Ask for new-looking tables if you want 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 stars 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.  You can use folding tables for Chicago Weddings, Chicago Graduation parties, and School ceremonies at Chicago schools.
