There are a lot of events that take place on a daily basis. But having to go all extravagant on each one of them could definitely put a hole in your pocket. That’s why, sometimes, we can opt to be just a bit more creative and spend only on the important things. Let’s say, some clever decorations and of course, lights and sounds. Do you agree? Well I do. But I also know that lighting and sound rental can either save you or cost you money. So here are a few tips for you before you jump on a rental deal.
Remember that lighting and sound equipment needs power to run, and usually a lot of it. Unless your venue is a home that you own, you might need to check with the venue you are renting. Ask the venue manager if it’s okay for you to add some lights and sound equipment with no extra charge. Some venues may be very strict and could charge you extra for the additional power you’ll need to operate equipment.
One way that would make your money go to waste is by jumping the gun on just about any cheap lighting and sound equipment you find. You have to pick the lighting and sound equipment that would fit your event and stage well. There are a lot of effects and equipment to choose from to cater your venue. Having a concrete plan and vision will ensure that you get the right materials for your event.
If you already have an idea in mind on where to avail of lighting and sound rental, that is well and good. However, if you are totally clueless, one good way to find one near your area is through Google. Certainly, there would be endless results for your search. So be very inquisitive, try to contact each one that appeal to you and see what they have to say about prices and service inclusions, if any. Or, the best way to approach this would be to visit lighting and sound rental websites to canvas first.
So you’ve finally decided go ahead with a lighting and sound rental, hopefully, from a reputable company. Now another important thing for you to ask is if your rental comes with an insurance. We all know accidents can happen. And when an accident occurs involving expensive equipment, and a rental at that, you want to be assured that the rental company has got you covered.
Some lighting and sound rental companies may be able to provide assistance in setting up your equipment. At the very least, experts working for the company you’re renting from can provide you with tips in operating their machines. Putting their suggestions and tips to heart will definitely ensure your safety and provide you the best results in using the equipment you rented.
Always remember, safety first! It is a must to ensure the reputation of the company and the quality of the equipment you are paying for. Never settle. If you are willing to pay for something anyway, make sure you get nothing less than the best deal. Lastly, whether it’s a birthday, corporate event or just a spontaneous party, I hope you have a blast during your event!
There are no large trucks on site, or dozens of employees but rather a kindred group of people who understand the need to bring affordable and quality lighting and sound services to events.
