Details – When you are close to signing a rental agreement, you want to make sure everything is clear about the timing, the price and the expected amenities. Take the opportunity to do a reference check to verify the company’s reputation and insurance, and ask to see the party bus in advance. If there is a possibility you might want to extend the time of the party, you have that discussion prior to signing the agreement in order to avoid any misunderstandings.
