DJ Party Rentals – Columbia & Franklin, TN – Established 1986
Con: They do not have a website (they do plan on getting one soon).
Pro: According to Manager Tiffany Woods “Friendly service, great rates”. My experience would back that up, as she was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their services, and their party service rates begin at $50. Also, 22 years in business, they are locally owned and operated with 3 locations, and they offer a wide variety of services: audio equipment, bakeware, candelabras, chafing dishes, champagne fountains & punch bowls, china glassware silverware, concession equipment, costume rental & sales, dance floor & staging, delivery & set-up, dunk tanks, heaters & fans, Helium tanks & balloons, lighting, linens, moonwalks & slides, gifts, party & wedding supplies, tables & chairs, tents
Best for you if: Friendly staff is as important to you as price and selection; you are in located Columbia; you have a venue for your party; your party is geared toward adults; your event is very large.
Fun & Party Zone – Spring Hill, TN –
Con: Website is not very user-friendly at the moment (in the process of being updated to include stream-lined ordering)
