No matter what event you’re planning, choosing to hire (rather than buying) your event needs is definitely the way to go. Need some convincing? Here are five great reasons why event hire is a smart option.
- Sustainable thinking
Now, more than ever before, we’re all seeking ways to lessen our environmental impact. An obvious step in the right direction here is to seek out what already exists, rather than buying new. ‘Reduce, reuse, recycle’ is the perfect mantra when thinking about hiring for your event. You’ll feel much better, and the planet will thank you too. On top of this, not many people have storage facilities for the 100 chairs they bought for a wedding, and the likelihood of needing that many chairs again in a hurry is next to zero for most of us!
This is a no-brainer – no-one likes wasting money! Generally, choosing to hire rather than buy for event needs will deliver around a 90% saving compared with you making an outright purchase of the same items. On top of this, event hire companies have done all of the hard work (and borne the expense) of sourcing incredible event hire options from all over the world. Ask yourself – ‘am I going to be able to reuse this item in the near future?’ If the answer is ‘no’, then you’re wasting precious money.
- The sky’s the limit
There are so many options available when it comes to event hire. A quick scroll of Instagram or Pinterest can easily become an extended exercise as you’re inspired by the array of amazing event hire options featured. From incredible marquees, to furniture, bars, lighting, décor, tabletop items and backdrops, you’re sure to find what it is you’re dreaming of (and there’s a good chance you’ll discover items you didn’t even know existed to fall in love with too). Each event hire company will offer their own unique collection of items, so that you can transform your venue into a memorable event space to ‘wow’ your guests.
- Access to expert advice from experienced professionals who live and breathe event hire
Most of us don’t plan events every day of the week, so the process can become a little overwhelming. Event hire professionals are able to offer all kinds of super-helpful tips to assist with decision-making questions. Simple, yet amazing solutions around how many chairs you should have, what lighting is right, the perfect marquee size for your event numbers, complementary styles and colour combinations can be delivered by these professionals, all in the space of a five minute phone call.
- Reduce time and stress
Hiring your event needs is guaranteed to save you time and, as a consequence, reduce stress levels in the lead-up to your event. You’ll have enough to consider without worrying about counting out (often mismatched wine glasses), working up a sweat rearranging household furniture or wondering whether Uncle Gary has remembered you’re borrowing his garden chairs. Event hire businesses will take care of delivery and set-up/pack-up, so that you can focus on what matters – looking forward to the big event!
