Water Barrel & Concrete Block Rentals

When hosting an outdoor gathering of any size in the Detroit area, you’ll need a tent and the ability to secure it with concrete blocks or water barrel rentals. Not all tent rentals can be staked securely into the ground. Depending on the location of your event, you may need to put your tent on a paved surface such as a parking lot or a patio. In this instance, you will need to weigh your tent down with our concrete block rentals or water barrel rentals.

Concrete Block Rentals

Anchoring a tent with concrete block rentals is your best bet for larger parties that require bigger tents. With our concrete block rentals - available in three different weights, 350 LB, 500 LB, and 750 LB - you can choose which option is best for you. Concrete block rentals are not top-heavy and provide you with more stability, so this option is great for larger parties and higher wind conditions. We know that giant slabs of concrete can be an eyesore to look at, so we offer white concrete block covers to go over your concrete block rentals for staking your tent. In order to maintain your ideal theme and decor for your party, we recommend dressing the concrete blocks with these covers and then decorating them with balloons, plants, or flowers. By dressing them up, you’ll camouflage the concrete block rentals, and they won’t be as prominent.

Water Barrel Rentals

For smaller tents, water barrel rentals will suffice and act as tent anchors when your tent cannot be staked into the ground. Each leg of the tent should have at least one water barrel rental secured to it. We have water barrels available that hold up to 75 gallons or 275 gallons of water. We always recommend setting your tent up near a water source where these water tote rentals can be easily filled up with a hose. Be aware that water barrel rentals are top-heavy, so it’s important to have an idea of the weather of the day of your event. If the forecast calls for a storm or high winds, you may want to choose our concrete block rentals, even for smaller tents, to ensure the safety of your guests.
