Helium Rental

IMPORTANT:  PLEASE NOT THAT WE DO NOT CURRENTLY HAVE A RETAIL STORE FOR WALK-INS.  HOWEVER WE HAVE DESIGNATED LOCATIONS IN FOSTER CITY/SAN MATEO FOR PICKUP OF HELIUM TANKS.   MEDIUM/LARGE TANKS CAN ALSO BE DELIVERED FROM DALY CITY TO MOUNTAIN VIEW FOR A NOMINAL CHARGE. 

Why avoid buying disposable helium tanks ?

1. Do you know that disposable helium tanks are way more expensive than our rental tanks?

Our smallest rental tank fills 75 balloons for $85 with tax (which also includes both latex and foil adapters). For a $58 disposable helium tank including tax, you only get 28 11inch latex balloons, or 21 12in latex balloons (Oh MY!) And many of our customers tell us many times they don't even get that. Because it is not filled correctly or you have no room for error when filling and cannot afford to overblow or leak during filling. So they end up sometimes getting 15 balloons!! And you pay almost $3 per balloon if you're lucky that is. Ours is barely $1.13! Why throw away your money?

2. Bad for the environment and cannot be recycled

Disposable tanks that you buy are one time use only and you have to dispose them. And they end up in landfills which is bad for the environment. In most cases you cannot even dispose them in regular garbage and they have to be recycled and you have to follow a whole lot of procedures to prepare the tank for recycle!

3. Air to Helium mix ratio is not good on disposable Tanks

Do you know that disposable tanks mix about 20-25% air to the helium , thus making your balloons last a lot lesser. Our rental tanks float your balloons longer.

4. Disposable helium tanks generally do not have foil adapters

Much harder to fill foil balloons with latex nozzles. Plus they are Our adapters are professional adapters and have both foil and latex nozzles.

5. You can keep our rental tank for up to 3 days

We don't charge you daily fee or extra rental. If we're not all out of tanks, you can keep your rental tank for up to 2-3 days. You can rent on a Friday and return Monday.
