If that sounds interesting, and it should, below you can read more about what we do and how it can benefit you!

Why Smart Businesses Rent Technology

Some of the most common reasons our customers rent technology are conventions, conferences, trade shows, event registration, data collection, seasonal business, and short term jobs, classroom training, travel, disaster recovery, and proof of concept projects. Some industries acquire server rentals to use as a stand-in while their hardware is being upgraded or moved. Others, like CPAs, get printer rentals and copier rentals for their busy tax season. But in every scenario, the short-term rental, delivery, setup, and pickup, saves businesses the time and labor of transporting and setting up their own hardware while greatly reducing the expense as compared to the cost of purchasing.

Short Term Rentals For Short Term Needs

While there are a plethora of different reasons for our customers to rent technology all of their needs have one thing in common: They’re short-term needs. Renting technology should be like renting a car. You only rent a car for a short time, like a week or so, and renting a computer or AV equipment should be the same way. If you think you may need your technology for a few months or you are trying to finance a purchase then a rental is NOT what you want. You may be interested in leasing the technology, which is something different entirely.

How To Get The Best Rental Possible

There are a lot of factors that go into getting the best rental experience for your business event. First, you should make a plan. Know what you are renting your equipment for, know when you will need it, and for how long. Is it for a convention? Trade show? Conference? Business Meeting? New employee training? Whatever your need you must make sure that you have a clear idea of what it is, pass along as much information as possible to your technology rental agent, and start that process as far in advance as possible to ensure the best rate and equipment availability.

The next step is knowing what rental period will provide the best value while making sure the equipment is delivered in plenty of time for you to be ready for your event.  Standard rental periods range from a day, a weekend, a week, or a month.

Flexibility is another important factor in getting the best rental possible. If your project required ten laptops, do you need ten Dell laptop rentals, if so do they need to be an exact model? Would it be OK if you had five Dell Precision laptops and five Lenovo ThinkPad laptops? Having this discussion ahead of time can save you some money, and is crucial to having a smooth, successful event.

As you can see, knowing what you need, when you need it, and how long you need it for are all factors in getting the best rental possible and if you don’t know the answers to these questions our experienced rental agents can take you through every step of the process to ensure that you are getting the absolute best rental possible for your needs and your budget.

Virtual Reality is quickly becoming a staple of experimental marketing by enabling brands to connect directly with customers and provide them with unforgettable experiences. VR headset rentals can transform your product from an idea into a solid concept. If your developing a mobile game or event selling MOPs, VR allows you to turn a seemingly mundane task into something more through gamification. And don’t forget to show off to the audience, video wall and television rentals allow those not wearing a headset to see what’s going on inside the simulation.

Speaking of gamification, hands-on experience can help set your product apart from your competition. With a smartphone rental, you can help your customers build a genuine connection with your product that lasts far beyond the gaming experience.

Our iPhone and Android rentals can be pre-configured with applications that will seamlessly connect with displays, share with other event-goers, or collaborate with co-workers later. Much of this can also be done with our tablet and iPad rentals.

With our charging stations and kiosks, attendees can charge any type of smartphone or tablet with ease.
