Our Services

Renting has never been easier

At Topside Tent & Party Rentals, we’ll bring your order right to your event location and return the following day to take it away. Or you can pick up your order at our clean, conveniently located showroom in Petersburg, Va.  Not only do we rent top-of-the-line equipment, but we also carry all the extra accessories to complete the job from start to finish.

We set up and take down all of our tents and canopies, so all you have to do is show us where it goes. With the weather as unpredictable as Virginia’s, don’t take a chance with your special event. Let us deliver a tent or canopy to keep your guests dry when it rains or cool and shaded from the heat.
