Party Rentals, Event Planning

Our Purpose is to provide stylish and innovative party rental equipment that supports our creative customers to design and experience the special events in their lives. Staying at the leading edge of the fast-paced special event industry demands that we continuously reinvent ourselves and our new product lines, which represent the single largest component of our company’s transformation. We are constantly seeking out the trends and patterns of this fast-paced market and have dramatically improved our inventory selection by adding more variety and increased quantity in each of the product categories, so much so that we have completely outgrown our facility and are “bursting at the seams”.

Our Mission is to provide superior customer service combined with the highest quality and broadest selection of party rental equipment and installation services in the industry.
Our Vision is of a company that enables our clients to create spectacular event experiences. We envision a company that provides innovative and quality party rental equipment combined with custom fabrication of woods, fabrics, steel and décor and all of this will be created, delivered and installed with pride and care.

Dolphin Party Rentals
1901 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, CA 91107
Party Equipment Rentals

Founded by Carl and Mary Ellen Dolphin in 1941 as a private ambulance service and medical equipment rental service, Dolphin Rents began its humble start in Pasadena, California. Dolphin Rents transported patients to and from local hospitals and nursing homes, and offered those in need of “sickroom supplies” rentals on a short or long term basis.

The company then contracted with Los Angeles County to provide for the emergent medical transportation needs of residents in unincorporated areas. Later, a contract with the City of Pasadena to back-up the local city ambulance service was signed, and the company had officially been accepted as a community based service.

Doctors and nursing homes became aware of the service and began ordering medical equipment along the lines of wheelchairs, hospital beds, walkers, etc. Physical therapists referred patients for orthopedic wheelchairs, crutches, walkers and rehabilitation equipment. Occupational therapists ordered bath safety equipment (grab bars, safety frames, toilet accessories, etc.), for patients who were anticipating their discharge from the hospital.

The company expanded to larger quarters twice over a twenty-year period, both times increasing inventories and territories. By the mid 60’s, the company was faced with some important decisions. The founders were retiring and their two sons were interested in taking over different parts of the business.

Joseph Dolphin, one brother, offered to run the ambulance service and train personnel to become paramedics. Once the paramedic program was introduced in Los Angeles County, the ambulance service took off. It quickly became the largest contract paramedic service in the country.

Patrick Dolphin took over the rental service and by the mid 70’s, introduced party and special event rentals. Aggressive marketing and Medicare billings grew the division to astronomical heights. As the event rentals business evolved in recent years, the company has emerged as a leader servicing California and Nevada with equipment for fairs, festivals, tournaments, ethnic celebrations, graduations and weddings.

Today, Dolphin Rents offers equipment rentals for any size special event. Everything from tables, chairs and umbrellas to dance floors, tents, canopies and concession machines. Non profit organizations, cities, colleges and universities, churches and schools have all become repeat customers who have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with the company.

Typically, our most common event is a wedding reception, banquet or, a country club or hotel renting tables and chairs, china, flatware, etc. Even caterers dial us for food warmers, commercial ranges, serving trays and gas grills, and consult with our event coordinators to determine dance floor sizes, tent locations and the like. As licensed contractors, we can secure city permits for corporate and non-profit events.

And with our new computer system, we have a distinct advantage over the competition. CAD drawings allow us to show clients the look of their event before it happens. We can even duplicate an event location, insert the requested rental equipment into the equation, and look at it in 3-D to offer the client a remarkable likeness of their event. CAD even allows us to present a clear and concise quotation detailing all the necessary rental equipment.

Dolphin Rents has successfully served the Southern California community over 70 years. As our inventory grows and our service territory expands, our goals remain the same: to provide clients with quality rental equipment at reasonable rates, and to offer a level of service that makes our clients overwhelmingly happy.
