Buying Vs. Renting Helium Tanks: 3 Reasons Renting Rules


helium tank rental

You have everything planned for your next event. You have the reservations set up, the invitations set out, and the decorations prepared. Now you just need a helium tank to fill up the balloons and fill the room.

But before you decide to budget for buying a helium tank for your event, it's worth considering renting a helium tank instead.

Is renting a helium tank the better option?

A helium tank rental provides an economical way for you to bring the joy of balloons to your next major event without worrying about your balloons sinking to the floor. Here are three reasons why renting a helium tank is more beneficial than buying one:

  1. Helium tank rentals keep things simple. When you buy a helium tank for an event, there's a lot you need to consider. For instance, you need to think about where you'll buy the tank from, how large the tank needs to be, and how you'll transport the tank to the event. You don't need to worry about that with a helium tank rental. Rental helium tanks are easy to operate, easy to transport, and they come in several different sizes to meet your needs.

  2. There's no need for storage. You need to consider where you're going to store your helium tank after you buy it and how you'll dispose of it when it's no longer safe to use. But you don't need to worry about how you're going to store your helium tank when you choose a helium tank rental. Simply return the tank to your supplier.

  3. You save money. Unless you have multiple special events lined up back to back, you don't need to spend the extra money to buy a helium tank when you can rent one for a lower price. What's more, you can save money by filling the balloons with your helium tank rental rather than paying for them to be prefilled.
