Furniture for Hire

Not only wedding reception ceremonies necessitate seating, you will also want to consider furniture for hire options when planning an expo or planning to exhibit at an expo. Apart from the normal plastic chairs used for large numbers of people at a presentation, you will also want to consider couches, tables, client seats, and showcases that are available through our furniture for hire division.

Why consider the furniture for hire option?

For one, it is quite expensive to purchase furniture for every exhibition and to transport the furniture from one place to another, not to mention the damage that may occur during transport and storage. It simply makes more sense to get furniture at an incredibly low price for an exhibition. The furniture can be delivered and picked up.

Just think of the time savings and you will already know that it is the best option for any exhibitor.

Considering the cost of furniture maintenance and the time involved in shopping for appropriate furniture, the idea of renting high quality furniture for an exhibit makes even more sense. Although clients often require customized stands and banners, they rather opt to rent furniture simply because of the logistics involved in keeping their own exhibition furniture.

We offer from tables and chairs to stands and you can thus setup an exhibition in Johannesburg while coming from another location at a cost effective price.

How to select a furniture hire company

Selecting the right furniture hire company is just as important as selecting the right furniture for the event. If you have a reliable furniture hire company on your side you will already be one up on the competitors as you will know that the furniture will be:

  • Appropriate for the particular event
  • Affordable
  • In good condition
  • Delivered
  • In the required quantity
  • Stylish
  • Fitting your exhibition theme
  • Delivered on time.

What you see on the Internet or in an ad is often not what you get at the end of the day. With an event coming up, it can be disastrous. As such you will want to go with a furniture hire company that has a track record of successful supply of the right furniture at the best possible price to the correct address and in perfect order. Finding such a supplier amongst the thousands out there, need not be a headache.

Make Functions A Pleasure With Furniture To Hire In Gauteng

When planning a large function there are a number of different requirements that have to be planned for and taken into account if the function is to be a success. The success of the function is especially important if it is related to the work environment. Often clients need to be entertained and representatives of partners and associates will be judging the professionalism of the organisation based on the planning and execution of the function. One way to ensure that any function runs smoothly is to look at furniture to hire. Gauteng is the epicentre of business in South Africa and as such plays host to a variety of different company functions on a daily basis.

furniture to hire Gauteng When looking at furniture to hire it is always a good idea to look at the track record of the company that will be supplying the furniture. The environment of a function is usually characterised by high levels of stress and the attention to detail that is required can make the preparation for the function extremely time consuming. It is therefore essential that the company in Gauteng that is to supply furniture hire services can be trusted to supply the required furniture both timeously and ensure that the furniture that is supplied is of exceptional quality.

The company supplying furniture hire services in Gauteng can also usually be relied upon to supply a number of other services relating to the hosting of a successful function. A furniture hire company will be able to supply such items as table and chair coverings, as well as centrepieces for the tables and other decoration. The sourcing of a variety of different goods for hire from a single supplier will usually result in a significant drop in stress levels that are related to the hosting of the function.

Professional Table and Chair Rentals

When planning for a business function it is always preferable to source a variety of hired goods from a single supplier. In this way both time and cost savings can be achieved. Chair and table rentals will usually be supplied by the same service provider. This ensures that the tables and chairs match and that both sets of items will be delivered at the same time, making the preparation of the room easier.

The company supplying chair rentals will also usually be able to supply covers for the chairs, ensuring that they fit and match the décor that has been chosen for the rest of the function decoration. In order to ensure that the chair covers match the rest of the décor the chair rentals company should be requested to supply chair covers in a neutral colour. Any organisation requesting chair rentals from a supplier should request extra chairs in order to make allowances for guests that unexpectedly arrive at the function.

Making the Correct Tables Rental Decision

When planning a business function the rental of tables should be planned far in advance of the day of the function, especially in business centres such as Johannesburg. The rental of tables should also take into account the added pressure that is placed on rentals companies during specific periods of the year such as Christmas and year end when demand can exceed supply.

The company supplying the tables for rental should be able to guarantee availability or face significant penalties. It’s always a good idea to take delivery of the tables a day prior to date of the function in order to ensure that the correct amount of tables is available for the planned seating arrangements.

Used Exhibits

These are existing exhibit or display stand properties, usually older and sometimes worn (though not necessarily), originally built for another purpose, available for rental or purchase. Many exhibit houses have a few of these lying about. Some exhibit houses have built their businesses on them. Just as there is nothing inherently wrong with a used car, there is nothing inherently wrong with a used exhibit. It depends upon the exhibit itself. Used exhibits may require the services of an on site labour source (show general contractor, or a labour contractor approved through show management) to set up, and often the rental exhibit provider can provided those services as part of the rental package to the exhibitor

Tabletop displays

Tabletop displays are usually comprised of a small metal frame work which can easily collapse (much like a backpacking tent frame) into a small carrying case, with graphic panels that attach to the frame work via mechanical fasteners, magnets, or Velcro. These displays are typically very easy to set up, and require little to no on site support labour. As the name implies, they are designed to be set on top of a table, one usually supplied by the show contractor. As with pipe and drape, this table is often provided as part of the price of renting the exhibit space. Contact Scan Display at +27 11 447 4777 for more information about our products and services.

The Editor’s Note

About 60% of South Africa’s Blue Crane population resides in the Western Cape. Here the birds favour farmlands, particularly pastures and wheat plantations, above the indigenous Fynbos habitat. But climate change threatens this unusual success story. The western parts of our country are expected to be most hard hit by the extreme weather conditions that climate change brings, and existing agricultural practices could become economically unviable, with detrimental effects for the cranes.

Kerryn Morrison manages the ICF/EWT Partnership for African Cranes and, together with her passionate team of crane conservationists, is carefully monitoring the Western Cape’s Blue Cranes so that we can react to the signs of climate change well in advance of it becoming an insurmountable problem.

When I asked Kerryn how she came to be so passionate about cranes, she said they are a perfect flagship species that can be used to highlight environmental issues to people and so change environmentally destructive behaviour. Kerryn was just four years old when her nursery school teacher predicted she would work with animals, and she has never wanted to be anything other than a conservationist. Her dedication is not without reward, and she has received broad acclaim for her exceptional dedication to crane conservation, and is recognised as being instrumental in combating the trade in cranes that takes place throughout Africa on a daily basis. We are extremely proud of being able to say that Kerryn has grown her career with the EWT since 1995.

We will be celebrating the success of our crane conservationists on World Environment Day, on 5 June, with this year’s theme being ‘Your Planet Needs You – Unite to Combat Climate Change’. Learn more about this day and other EWT climate change projects by entering our online competition , open only to our loyal supporters, and stand in line to win a fabulous getaway to a South African destination.
