The Event Essentials Story

Event Essentials is the event division of A to Z RentAll, which began in 1954. Our founders, Rex and Enid Hoffman, started their new general rental business on Atwood Avenue as a franchisee of United Rent-Alls. After a short time, they changed the name and became A to Z RentAll. By 1965, they had outgrown their original location and moved the business to East Washington Avenue, near Union Corners.

Rex and Enid worked to see A to Z RentAll grow and expand both tool and event rentals. When the East Washington location was heavily damaged by a fire in 1979, the company moved to a new facility at 2209 South Stoughton Road, where the current tool rental division is still located.

Event Essentials is the event division of A to Z RentAll. The event portion of the business started with tables and chairs, party equipment and audiovisual equipment. Over time, it became apparent that event rental was a growing business of its own. To better focus on the needs of weddings, event planners, corporate events, community events, galas, graduations, and other celebrations Event Essentials became A to Z RentAll's specialized event division with its own location in Windsor, Wisconsin, just north of Madison, Wisconsin.

We pride ourselves on our dedicated service, dependability, and quality rental products. Whatever your event, we have the inventory and experienced professionals you need to suit your vision and your budget.
