(San Jose, CA) Renting a projection screen for your wedding is one of those things that you kinda don't think about until you're doing your inventory for all things you need about a week or two before the wedding and it hits you. The weekend rental policy was great. As our wedding was on a Saturday, we picked up the projection screen on Friday and were able to return it by Monday while only being charged for one day. Thanks, Avista!

(Colorado Springs, CO) Avista was very helpful for our U.S. Figure Skating event.  We came in from out of town for a fundraiser and Avista was able to set up and break down the AV equipment with no hassle on our side.  We were very pleased and will use them again for future events in the Bay Area.

(Pittsburg, CA) I rented equipment for an outdoor movie for my birthday. The instructions for the set up were very simple and they explained it all to me beforehand and tested out the equipment to make sure there were no issues. Plus you can text them any time if you have a problem. I didn't need it, but that's nice to have. The price was reasonable as well. I'd definitely rent from them again.
