Types of Plates

Plate rental companies typically offer a variety of plate types, including dinner plates, salad plates, dessert plates, and even specialty plates like charger plates or appetizer plates. Make sure to choose the appropriate plate sizes for your event and menu.

Plate Material

Plates can be made from various materials, including ceramic, glass, and plastic. Each material has its own advantages and disadvantages, so consider the aesthetics, durability, and functionality of each option. Think about whether you will be eating outside, if there will be kids there, and other factors that affect your choice of plate material.

Rental Duration

Rental companies may have minimum or maximum rental durations no matter what you are renting from them, so be sure to inquire about their policies. You’ll want to ensure that the rental period covers the entirety of your event, including setup and cleanup time.

Cleaning and maintenance

Plate rental companies may require that plates be returned cleaned or may offer cleaning services for an additional fee. Make sure to inquire about their cleaning policies to avoid any extra charges or fees.


Pricing may vary based on plate type, material, quantity, and rental duration. Make sure to compare pricing from multiple rental companies to ensure that you’re getting the best value for your budget. You should also ask about pickup and delivery fees so that you can accurately plan your budget.
