(San Diego, CA) We rented a bunch of equipment from Avista to do an outdoor karaoke/movie event for a summer camp. The process for extremely easy and the staff was very helpful in explaining all the equipment we had and how to set it up and run it. Checking in and out were quick and easy and the price was very reasonable for everything we got. It couldn't have been easier to run the event with how Avista set us up. I will return to Avista for all my future needs.

(Los Angeles, CA) rented one of their packages for a 75 person, indoor movie screening. The total was just above $200 with taxes. Since I opted to pick up the equipment over having it delivered, I saved a few hundred dollars. When I arrived I met a young lady, who showed me step by step how to assemble and disassemble the equipment. She was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the set up. She even helped me take the equipment to my car! I returned the equipment Monday and she again helped me carry items in! This entire experience was easy and painless.

(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.
