When it comes to hosting an event, many people worry about making sure they have the right equipment to make it happen. Sometimes people will use what they have, or create makeshift parts as a substitute for pieces that they don’t have. This is where the big question comes in: Should I buy or rent audio-visual equipment?
From our experience, renting proves to be far more beneficial to an average consumer or event coordinator. Renting audio-visual equipment opens you to a world of options. You should never be limited to the equipment you use to make your event come alive which is why renting proves to be more reliable.
1) Save Some Money!
In terms of spending, purchasing lighting, audio and visual equipment can come at a high cost. This is why renting proves to be the best decision when it comes down to acquiring equipment. Rental equipment allows you to use high-end gear of all sizes for a limited-time low cost. Essentially, you get to use the industry’s best equipment while spending a fraction of the price of their original costs. We see this as one of the more critical factors due to the fact that it enables you to spend money on other areas of the event.
Having the proper equipment is just the first step in hosting a successful event. What comes next is making sure your equipment arrives at your destination on time and in one-piece. Transporting your equipment should be marked high on your priority list. Late arriving or damaged equipment can result in a delay or even cancelation of the event. Rental equipment typically comes with the proper transportation equipment and is always ready for pick-up; crossing off 2 worries that may come up during the setup of your event.
3) No Maintenance, No Problem
One of the golden perks of renting equipment is being worry-free in terms of the maintenance of the equipment. Maintenance of expensive equipment pieces can run you up a couple hundred or even thousands of dollars in additional fees. When renting, the lending company handles all the maintenance of their equipment which ensures top-notch quality. Overall, renting equipment simply eliminates any inconveniences that may come your way when hosting an event.
