Policy, Safety & Tips

Helium tanks may be rented with a driver's license and a cash or credit card deposit of $200.00(U.S.) per tank. The rental fee may be paid in advance with a credit card, check, or cash. Reservations are recommended at least one week in advance.  Customer's may rent helium tanks up to 3 days at no additional charge, and $2 per day thereafter. Helium accounts are also welcome.

Whether you have your own balloons and only need to rent a tank and nozzle. Or if you need the works. We have all that you need to make your inflation experience simple and fun.


There is a $35.00 delivery & $35.00 pick-up charge plus a $8.00 hazmat fee for all local deliveries. Tanks are delivered and picked up within 3 days at no extra charge). Additional charges apply to out of area deliveries and locations that do not meet our delivery criteria, i.e. steps, secured buildings, etc. Please call for an accurate quote.

We do supply security stands for an additional charge. Tanks should be secured during use. Tanks may be secured to posts with duct tape or rope as an alternative.

While helium is not a toxic gas, certain helium tank precautions should be followed. Be forewarned that it is dangerous to breathe helium directly from a tank - the high pressure can cause severe lung damage.

When scheduling a crew to inflate your balloons, keep in mind that 11-inch balloons will float for 12 to 24 hours, depending on how well they are sealed. Tying Clips are easier than hand-tying for the novice, but they are less likely to properly seal the balloon than a good old-fashioned hand-tied knot. Plan your inflation time accordingly.

Prices do not include tax. Other prices furnished upon request. Other charges may apply. Prices subject to change without notice.
