If you are planning of having a party you should go for a portable dance floor. The portable dance floor is preferred by many people due to the benefits that it comes with.

Benefits of portable dance floors

Easy to assemble: the dance floor is made from interlocking portable flooring that you can easily open and close. The interlocking flooring also makes it easy for you to customize the shape and size of the floor so that it’s able to accommodate as many people as possible. You are also able to manipulate it to fit any place that you want.

Easy to decorate: to give your party a great look you should decorate your dance floor. Party rental companies supply portable dance floors that come with a wide range of graphics and colour patterns that match the theme of the party.

There are other dance floors that come with detachable features thus allowing you to customize the decorations.

Tough: most of the portable dance floors are made from hardwood. In addition to being elegant, the floors are tough thus you don’t have to worry of dents or scratches. This ensures that you have as much fun as possible without worrying of the party rental withholding your deposit.

Lighting: to create a great appeal you should have enough lighting on the dance floor. The cool thing is that most portable dance floors come with lighting features where you can easily attach the lights and give your guests the experience that they always wanted.

Renting a portable dance floor

As mentioned you should rent the dance floor from a rental company. When renting, it’s good to note that no two companies are equal. You should do your research and settle on the most reputable company renting the dance floor.

Many rental companies offer discounts when you rent more items from them. To get these discounts and save money you should consider renting more items from the same company. For example, you should get rental chairs or even rental tents from the same company.

You should note that the companies will charge you if the rental items get damaged; therefore, you should take good care of them. It’s also good to note that some companies will require you to wash the items before returning them. To avoid confusion you should always read through the return policy before you sign a contract with the company.

Understanding Party Rental Tents

Since parties vary in size, you need different sizes of party tents. Here are the different sizes of party tents that you can go with:

  • 16 X 16: can hold 24-32 people
  • 20 X 20: holds 20-50 people
  • 20 X 30: holds about 64 people
  • 30 X 30: holds a maximum of 90 people
  • 30 X 60: up to 180 people can sit in it

Types of party tents

There are many types of party tents that you can go with. Some of the most common ones are:

Canopy: they are light and used in covering prize areas, guests and food stations. Since they are light, they aren’t ideal for long term installation. You should also avoid installing them in high winds and heavy rain situations. They are usually secured by rope.

Pole tents: they are supported by a number of perimeter and centre poles. They come in different sizes and colours and are ideal when you install them on flat grass or gravel.

Frame tents: they are ideal for both indoor and outdoor installations. They are made of a thick vinyl stretched over an aluminium frame in order to create a tenting arrangement that doesn’t obstruct the middle poles for support. Depending on the situation, they are either staked or weighted down. Many people prefer stacking them as they look great when staked.

Tent rental tips

Before you contact a tent rental company you should do your research and ensure that the company is reputable. You should also know the style of seating, activities that will take place during the party and the size of the party area. You also need to know the grade or slope of installation. The cool thing is that many reputable companies will visit the site and inspect it.

Many people tend to make mistakes when renting party tents and you shouldn’t be one of the people. You shouldn’t make assumptions on the size of party tent that you need. As rule of thumb you should consult a party tent professional who will advise you on the right size to go with.

Proper installation of party tents takes time; therefore, you should always contact the tent company a few days before the party in order to leave enough time for proper installation.

Conclusion

This is what you need to know about party tents. For ideal results always work with a reputable party rental company.
