Buy or Rent: Which Way Do You Go When You Need Audio Visual Equipment?

So you are organizing a conference, a birthday party or a wedding and you need some audio-visual equipment, right? Well, I sure you do because whether you need to play music or show some pictures, it is important to do it the right way. You need to plan every bit of your event well and there are several things to consider when getting the audiovisual equipment. The most important consideration though is whether to buy the equipment or rent it. Ultimately, the answer to this depends on some factors which shall be discussed below.

I bet that most people don't use audiovisual equipment very often unless they are in the event planning business. As such, the bottom line is to rent the equipment. There is a wide range of audio-visual equipment used in events including projectors, sound systems, microphones, screens, computers and many others. Some of these equipment may not used on a regular basis so buying them for your event may not make much economic sense. However, if you intend to buy them and rent them out later, it could probably work out for you.

Even when you are in the events planning business, buying your own audiovisual equipment from can be a bummer especially if you do not know how to maintain them. Some AV equipment need special care to ensure that they don't break and become useless. If you choose to hire, you can leave it to the experts to install them, and your only role would be to use them, and they will collect them when the event is over. Hiring audiovisual equipment is also a good idea because it allows you to have a backup plan when one of the equipment fails. Most companies that rent out their equipment have some backup and will be able to save the situation when something goes wrong. This ensures that your event goes on well without any mishaps.

Finally, if you are thinking of buying audiovisual equipment at Music On Stage, you need to consider the total cost of ownership. Besides the cost of buying the equipment, may also need technicians to run or fix them. You also have to figure out how to transport the equipment as well as the storage arrangements. Storing screens and projectors and wireless audio systems can take up a lot of room, and there is no guarantee that this equipment will be safe. So without a doubt, renting this type of equipment is the best option.
