Where do I go to pickup my tank rental?
If you've purchased your rental on our website - when you arrive at LA Balloons, please park in the rear of the building (near CVS). Call 818-246-9404 and give us your order number. Stay in your car and we'll bring the tank and inflator out to your car.
Can I go into the store to rent a tank or have my tank filled?
The store is currently closed for in-store browsing and customers are not able to come into LA Balloons to rent helium tanks. Please place your order via the options above on this page.
Do you explain how to use the tank and inflator
Yes. When you arrive we'll explain how to transport your tank safely, how to connect the inflator to the tank, and how to inflate your balloons.
What comes with my rental?
Each rental includes the tank size you rented, helium in the tank filled to 1800 PSI, and a basic latex inflator.
I want to inflate foil/ mylar balloons. Do I need another inflator than the one that comes provided?
Yes, the basic latex inflator that comes standard with all rentals are designed to inflate latex balloons. If you plan on inflating foil/ mylar balloons, you'll need to upgrade your inflator to a Dual Latex and Mylar Inflator.
Can I keep my rental longer than the 3-Day rental period.
Yes. If you need your take longer than the 3-day period let our staff know so we can create a custom quote for you. Any tanks not returned by the 3-Day period without a extended time frame agreement will be charged the applicable late fees.
My tank is due back on the weekend, but LA Balloons is closed. Will I be charged extra days?
If your 3-Day time period ends on a Saturday or Sunday, please return the tank on the following business day. You will not be charged for the extra weekend days.
How do you calculate the 3-Day time period?
The day you pick your tank up counts as day one. So if you pick you tank up on a Monday it will be due back on Wednesday.
What is the best way to transport cylinders?
Always transport your cylinders lying down unless you have a vehicle that you can secure the tanks to along the wall. IMPORTANT: Always remove your inflator from your tank prior to transporting it in a vehicle.
Do I need a cylinder safety stand for my tank?
For tank sizes starting at 110 cu. ft., you'll need to secure them when stationary. Even if they are not in use. We recommend renting a Tank Hand Truck. These Hand Trucks act as a cylinder safety stand and as an easy way to transport your tank.
Do I need to fill out the rental agreement before I arrive to pickup my tank?
We ask all customer to complete the Rental Agreement prior to picking up your tank. It helps expedite the process and allows us to get you on your way faster.
