Rent-All of Boston, Inc. was established in 1959 as a United Rent-All franchise by the late Bob Harris and his wife Stasia Harris with initial assistance from Bob’s father, Ben and his son Bob Jr. In the early days it was primarily a one and two man operation carrying a full line of rental inventory from party to light contractor and homeowner’s equipment. In 1964 the franchise relationship with United Rent-All ended and Rent-All of Boston was created.
The location of the business was at 578 River Street Mattapan on the first floor of a wooden four decker building, approximately 800 square feet. The tables and chairs were stored in the three car garage at the Harris’s home. Tandem Bicycles, camping trailers and camping tents were part of the initial inventory. The wash and storage area for the entire party equipment line was a 9’x14’ room. We used to bottle carpet shampoo from a 55 gallon drum and clean off equipment on the sidewalk.
On November 11, 1978 we relocated to 1161 Adams Street in Lower Mills, the present address of the corporate headquarters and tool rental. The building was 4800 square feet, with what seemed to be ample room for expansion. In the winter of 1982-1983 the idea of an expansion became a reality and a 4000 square foot addition was built totally 8800 square feet. In April of 1982 the business became incorporated, all the divisions of the company were rapidly expanding. In early 1986, the party and event division moved to 367 Neponset Avenue in Neponset Circle, Dorchester.
In January of 2014 we consolidated sales department for Boston Party Rental with the tool store at our Adams Street location and moved the warehouse and distribution to 40 Strafello Drive in Avon Massachusetts. February 1st 2017 Boston Party Rental was sold to B.C Tent & Awning
