Event decor rentals


Waikato, New Zealand

Planning a wedding is a challenging experience that can be exacerbated when you can’t find what you want. Many couples would compromise in this situation, but Abbey and Rich Boobyer took the opportunity to start their event decor rental business. Since starting Love Club Hire in 2017, they have gradually grown their inventory and used Booqable to accept online bookings and manage equipment.

Love Club Hire

Abbey and Rich became engaged in late 2017 and started planning their dream wedding day. They both have a passion for style matched with quality and affordability. When they began looking for event decor to rent for their big day, they found unique products almost impossible to come by. So, they decided it would be awesome if they could fill the gap and started Love Club Hire.

They started with a beautiful clear marquee that can be set up in a 10x10 or 10x25 configuration. From there, they expanded into handmade furniture made from locally sourced materials and assembled in their hometown of Waikato. Finally, they began offering a collection of lighting, lounging, and barware. This helps them to accommodate a wide range of visions and preferences from the couples that reach out for their services.

Over the past few years, they have built a reputation for offering genuinely high-quality event decor and equipment at an affordable price. They have rapidly grown their inventory and will continue in the coming years. In addition, they have helped over 500 couples to create their perfect wedding day with their beautiful products. They hope to help many, many more as they continue to grow.

Knowing what’s available

Like many rental start-ups, Abbey and Rich faced challenges after the first year. At this point, they found that keeping up with availability was becoming challenging. This led to some cases where items were double-booked, and it began to impact the day-to-day running of the business. So, they started looking for a software solution that would help them track availability and prevent overbooking.

Their search led them to Booqable, which immediately began to solve their problems. The inventory management and availability tracking in Booqable mean that they no longer double-book any equipment and always have a bird’s-eye view of what is available. This is particularly helpful when it comes to building quotes for clients. They can quickly see what the availability looks like at a glance.

In addition, they have integrated Booqable with their Squarespace website. This has enabled them to accept online quote requests through their website. Potential clients can browse inventory, see what is available, and quickly build a quote without human interaction. This has reduced the back and forth about availability they used to experience.

Doubling inventory

Since implementing Booqable, Abbey and Rich have gained confidence in keeping track of everything. This has led to quick growth in their inventory, which is set to continue in the coming years. They hope to add more marquees, tables, and furniture to virtually double their available inventory and help even more couples. In addition, it will allow them to take on a full-time staff member rather than using temporary workers.
