This article will explore helium tank hire in Sydney as well as some tips to get the best hire possible.

Where to find: Gas tanks are usually available to hire at party stores. Heading to a physical store is a great option because staff can show purchasers how to use the tank. Party companies will also have the balloons, so everything can be obtained at the same place.

Googling local stores is a quick and easy way to establish what options are in the area. Great businesses will usually offer to beat any cheaper prices found, so it is wise to price shop when searching for a party store. For customers that cannot visit in-person, party companies often have the option to place phone or online orders.  

In-store inflation: Another great option is to head in-store to use an inflation machine. This saves from having a transport a tank to and from home, and can save on hire costs. The back of an average family sedan can fit approximately 50 balloons contained in a safety net or travel bag.

Many companies are also happy for customers to bring inflatables that they have purchased from a different company; they just cannot guarantee their quality.

What to buy: the helium tank hire in Sydney usually have a few options of what to buy. For example, a customer may have the option of buying a kit which includes the tank, balloons in a variety of colours, ribbons and clips.

Alternatively, there is often the option to buy the tank on its own for those who already have their supplies. Establishing if a standalone option or a full-kit option is wanted is a great way to figure out which company is the best suited based on what they offer.

Businesses usually require some sort of deposit when hiring, so it is important to factor that into the budget.

Safety tips: When using helium is it important to know how to have fun safely. It is vital to understand that helium balloons cannot be released into the air as this can cause environmental and wildlife damage. In NSW it is even illegal to release 20 or more.

Furthermore, good companies will educate their purchasers on the dangers of inhaling helium. Although it can be a funny experience as the inhalers voice gets squeaky, it can lead to the restriction of oxygen and have very dangerous consequences.

When hosting a party, it is imperative to only use the gas for its intended purpose and to educate guests on how to use it safely (especially children).

In conclusion, helium tank hire is the perfect way to make a celebration vibrant, fun and happening. Tanks can usually be found at local party stores, and some companies may even have an in-store inflation option.

To get the best hire possible it is perfectly okay to do some research and price shop. Establishing what sort of purchase is required is the key to finding the perfect company, and it is important to use safety measures as well as supervise children at all times around any inflatables.
