For every wedding, corporate evening or large business event, there are many, many factors that come into play to make sure that the event is perfect, from the event venue through to the supplied food, drink and entertainment, and of course, everything in between.
One of the key factors of any successful big day or evening is the furniture, as you can have the best of everything but if you have shabby, old and worn furniture, it can really let your event down, no matter how much you cover with fabric, bows and fancy items. Indeed, not having nice furniture is one thing, but not having enough furniture is another, with having enough chairs and tables often very important when it comes to making sure everything goes to plan.
With this in mind, we take a look at the advantages of hiring furniture, rather than storing it, as there are some key reasons why hiring really can be much more effective than owning your own furniture for your event(s).
No Need To Store
Having to pay storage fees for furniture you own is just another cost that you can avoid when you hire, as the furniture hire company take care of all the storage and you only order form them the amount of furniture you need for your event. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about storing 40 tables and 120 chairs all year around, as this is a big consideration, not only in terms of cost, but also in terms of protecting your furniture and the location in which you choose to store it.
More Cost Effective
Investing in a wide selection of furniture, especially in large volumes is going to set you back a lot of money, and money that you might really struggle to quantify in terms of return on investment. But when you hire, you pay for what you need for the event and then it all goes back to the furniture hire firm after everything is said and done, which means you literally pay as you go, rather than having to find a load of upfront money to buy tons of furniture you might only use once or twice.
When you invest in your own furniture, you are stuck with what you have, unless you end up renewing or replacing your stock frequently, which of course works out very costly. When you hire, you are in control of what you want and the type of furniture you are looking for, which means if you want square tables instead of round ones, you can choose exactly what you need. Choice is important as every event is different and every event usually needs something extra, but when you hire, this is simple, as you just pick and choose what you need and everything gets delivered as you specified.
A nice element of hiring your furniture is the flexibility of what you can hire, where you can hire it and when you can hire it, as if you run many national events then you can pick and choose a company in the local area and hire accordingly. No need to transport your own furniture from your head office or storage facility and you can pretty much just hire what you need, which is ideal if your numbers are varying per event.
