Rent a Helium Tank to Give Event Decorating a Lift
Balloons filled with lighter-than-air helium stay afloat, never failing to mesmerize onlookers. Renting a helium tank provides an economical way for you to bring the joy of helium balloons to your next event. Here are some of the advantages of renting a helium tank to fill balloons yourself.
  • Fits all occasions. No matter what occasion you celebrate, helium-filled balloons can add a special element to it. People often rent helium tanks to fill balloons for birthday parties, graduation celebrations, wedding or anniversary receptions, baby showers, school dances, church gatherings, corporate events including grand openings and other occasions.
  • Decorative. Nothing says, “Let’s celebrate,” more than decorative balloons inflated using rented helium tanks. You can use balloons to create centerpieces, bouquets, arches and sculptures. Since balloons come in all shapes and patterns, they also can help carry a theme. For example, use “Smiley face” balloons for a 70’s party, jukebox balloons for a 50’s party or balloons shaped like baby bottles for a baby shower. Only your imagination limits the possibilities of decorating with balloons.
  • Safe. Helium is a non-explosive, non-toxic and inert gas. When handled properly, rental helium tanks, although pressurized, can fill balloons safely.
  • Easy. Many rental helium tanks today contain features that make them easy to operate. You also can transport small and light helium tanks easily, especially those that offer carrying handles. Some rental stores offer delivery of larger helium tanks.
  • Economical. When you need numerous helium-filled balloons, renting a helium tank to fill the balloons yourself can cost less than buying balloons pre-filled with helium. In addition, if you do not need helium on a regular basis, renting a refillable helium tank instead of buying a disposable one can save you the trouble of storing and disposing of the disposable tank. Disposable tanks also tend to be smaller than rental ones, so cannot fill as many balloons.
  • Profitable. You can rent a helium tank for filling balloons to sell for profit at a fundraising event, such as a carnival or festival.
