• Comparing Our Small and Large Carpet Rollers

    If you are planning to install some new flooring, a carpet roller is the perfect equipment rental to help. Carpet rollers can be used for both carpet and linoleum. Using rollers helps you avoid the appearance of seams on the floor and allow the final result to look smooth and clean, without any bumps, lumps, or uneven edges.

    Both our small and large carpet rollers have detachable wheel assembly kits, so you can transport it easily. They also both have upright support and segmented, chrome rollers that apply even pressure. The axels are inset to prevent wall scuffs. The small roller can support 75 pounds of carpet of linoleum, while the large one can support 100 pounds.

    A-1 Rental Center has everything you need to complete both large and small flooring projects, including rollers, steamers, and strippers. Our huge collection of equipment rentals in Redwood City also includes drills, generators, and moving equipment to shift furniture during your flooring work. To reserve your tools, call (650) 369-2992.

  • Setting Up an Outdoor Quinceanera Celebration

    When you’re planning a quinceanera, or quince, think outside the box when it comes to your venue. Instead of going for a traditional quince in a restaurant or event venue, hold your celebration outdoors. With a tent and table and chair rentals, you can create an upscale party that is fitting for the celebration. Here are some ideas for setting up your outdoor quince.

    Make Your Event Rental Reservations Early

    Event rentals, like tents, tables, and chairs, can go quickly. That’s why it is smart to make your rental reservation as soon as you know your party date. This will help to ensure that you get exactly what you want. Your rental list depends on the style of your event and the size of your guest list, but tents, chairs, tables, linens, and other party supplies should be on your list. Choosing your color theme before you make your reservations will also help you determine exactly what you need for your event.

    Choose the Best Party Tent for Your Needs

    The most common kinds of party tents are pole tents and frame tents. Pole tents are supported by poles that come up at different points from the floor. This creates peaks along the top for a dramatic look, but it also means that there are poles in the center of your party space. Frame tents are supported by metal frames, so there are no center poles, but they don’t have the same kind of dramatic look on top. These are pros and cons to both kind of tents, so choose the one that fits your quince vision the best.

    Use Lighting to Set the Scene

    If your quince will go into the evening, lighting can be a beautiful part of your design. Dangling strings of light, colored lights, and fairy lights are just some of the ideas for using lights as part of your design. Don’t forget to include functional lighting inside your tent for dancing, eating, and more.
