Four Things To Consider Before Renting Equipment For Retail Displays

Posted by on 2/22/2018 to General

Renting equipment is a quality alternative to buying. It enables you to get the things you need without a high cost, long commitment, and other things that buying something outright entail. Joslin Displays is happy to offer rental service for equipment you can use in retail displays. While it’s a relatively straightforward process, there are always things you can consider beforehand to make the process much more convenient. 


1.) Budget 

How much can you spend on the items you want to rent? Assessing your budget before you make a purchase ensures that you have enough money to make that move and helps you narrow down which brands or pieces of equipment are affordable - and which are simply off the table for the time being. With a prepared budget, you can shop safely and effectively. 

2.) Every part you need

Some items are uncomplicated and don’t need extra accessories, but others require some additional hardware or pieces. So, you have to account for them in your budget and make room for those expectations. You’ll need to assess every single item you need to rent. Otherwise, you may come up short and not have everything you need to make retail displays efficiently work. 

3.) Use 

Rental is best for items that you need for a  short time, not for something you want to make a mainstay in your display(s). Before you call someone to set up a rental, consider how long you’ll need the item. If you’re going to keep it around for a long time, it may be more advantageous to buy it outright. If what you plan to rent will only last a season or comparable time, rental is a smart alternative. 

4.) Decor 

A cohesive theme is crucial to all businesses. They will look a bit disjointed otherwise. Before you plan on renting something, take the time to look around your store and get a feel for its decor. That way, you know that way you buy is going to match it and contribute to the overall look and feel of the business. 


Rental is useful, fun, and simple, and can be an even better experience with some planning beforehand. We highly encourage contacting us for quality equipment you can use in retail displays. For more information about what we have to offer, please give us a call at 1-(800)-325-1030!
