    As a business owner planning events, I work only with A-1 for any rental needs I have. I find their staff to be courteous, knowledgeable, patient as I decide on what's needed and helpful.

    Anything I rent is impeccably clean, and ready to go -- and as often I use their pick up and delivery service -- reliable and timely are always what comes to mind.

    You get the consistent value you pay for and that is priceless when you consider the other things on your "to do" list as you plan out events!

    Highly, highly recommend!

    A1 Party & Event Rental company did an Amazing job for my wedding this past weekend. We hired them to Deliver about 40 miles away, Set Up, Tear Down and Take Back (approx. 40 more miles). I was in constant communication with Darrick Farr about when they would be delivering and when they would be picking up. I even added to my order on Friday and it was absolutely no problem for them to fulfill. He was Super Great to work with and I would recommend the company and the individual to anyone who is needing a rental of any type!
