Sourcing rentals for your wedding or event can be a total headache for a few reasons. Once you get over the shock of the cost of renting a single chair, you’ll ask yourself – does everyone in this area charge XX for a chair? Do I really have to go search each, individual rental companies’ websites to see offerings & pricing? Man, it’d be easier to just search one place to get a list of all the rental items (with price comparison) I might need, AND be able to book the rentals right then and there – a one-stop-shop, that lets you actually “add to cart” and schedule your delivery for your rentals.
Well you’re in luck because someone created Goodshuffle for this exact reason. Goodshuffle (made in DC!) was started with the sole purpose of simplifying the event rentals business. Their online marketplace makes it so much easier to find the most affordable prices for whatever your event rental needs might be, and saves you time by centralizing the rentals shopping & scheduling process (More time? Surely something every couple planning a wedding needs).
Goodshuffle has a good deal of tools on their website as well, all with the purpose of HELPING you! You can search through collections to use as an inspiration (what all might I need for a romantic, winery wedding?).
Planners or DIYers can use the tent calculator and tablecloth calculator to help make decisions. Never rented a tent for an event before? The tent calculator helps you to decide the type & size of tent you might need.
Likewise, the tablecloth calculator helps you to decide the size of a linen you will need based on your table sizes. (Side note: this tablecloth calculator tool is almost FUN to play with, but also SUPER useful. I’ve personally worked weddings where the couple opted to buy or rent their own linens and as I dressed the tables, the linens didn’t quite meet the floor so you could still see some not-so-event-ready table legs. Don’t make this mistake!)
You can compare prices, create different carts for your different events, and even schedule deliveries, all through the website.
Goodshuffle isn’t staying put either – they’re planning on adding more tools and products in the near future – including a software for event rental companies to use this month! Stay tuned and check out their site for more information on what’s coming next. I’m gonna go head back over to that tablecloth calculator ;)
