When you have a private dinner party, you can usually cobble together enough chairs by looking around your home. Sure, if the party is larger than expected, someone may be sitting in an office roller chair, while a kid is sitting on a footstool, but everyone will have a place to sit.
What if your party is larger than that though? A milestone birthday, retirement party, or business event can quickly use up all available chairs while still leaving people standing. If you don’t have enough tables to go with it, this can make the problem even more awkward.
Of course, you could spend thousands of dollars purchasing chairs for the event, even more, money storing them until the event, and then sell them afterward, but this has problems of it’s own. Besides being inconvenient, there is no guarantee anyone will want to purchase them once you have finished using them, and storing them can be extremely expensive.
A different option is to rent your chairs. Renting chairs allows you to order as many as you need for your guests, without having to go through the hassle of purchasing them or storing them. As an added benefit, you can often choose from a variety of styles, whether you need plain folding chairs or a fancier look for a wedding.
Even if your get together is fairly small, many rental companies allow you to make smaller orders. It makes sense to use a rental company even if your event is as small as a baby shower.
Choosing to rent over purchasing isn’t just a convenient and price effective, it’s also good for the environment. If you purchase a significant number of chairs and store them, telling yourself you will use them 2-3 times a year to justify it, you are potentially wasting a significant amount of materials for something that won’t be used very often.
Rental chairs, on the other hand, are reused over and over again, on an almost daily basis. Renting chairs is the environmentally sound thing to do, keeping a glut of chairs from being created in the first place, saving fossil fuels and materials from being used on an unnecessary item.
We all know that we need to do more recycling, reducing, and reusing. Chair rentals NY are a great way to help reduce the amount we purchase and helping at least one of the items for our parties to be reused. Many chair rental locations also rent tables, tablecloths, and even decorations, keeping the cycle going.
No matter what your goals are for a party, choosing to rent your chairs over purchasing them is one of the smartest things you can do. Chair rentals will give you the opportunity to match all of your chairs, make sure your guests are comfortable, save money, save time, and yes, save the environment too. If you’re planning on putting together an event, whether it is for friends and family or business, renting the chairs is a smart option to go with.
