For one person, we recommend the 4′ x 6′ booth because it is just small enough to not take too much space on your property, and just large enough to fit one person comfortably. If the booth will not be used consistently throughout the day, and only periodically for someone to stop by and sit down for a few minutes, you can probably get away with a 4′ x 4′. For two people, however, the recommended size is a 6′ x 6′. This is the smallest booth that will allow two people to sit next to each other and still have a comfortable space between them. A booth of 6′ x 8′ or larger is recommended to accommodate three people.

Rental cost will depend on the size of the booth and duration of the rental period. Our standard rental sizes are 4′ x 4′ and 4′ x 6′ booths. Here is an example price, as of this posting: On long-term rentals of at least 3 months, the 4′ x 4′ is available at $354.99 per month and the 4′ x 6′ at $369.99.

Our standard rental rate depends upon a variety of factors including booth size and location. We usually rent on a monthly basis and do not generally offer different rates for long-term rentals. If you planned to rent a booth for an extended period of time (such as the 3 years asked about), it would probably make more financial sense to simply purchase the booth. However, if your circumstances do not allow you to make such a purchase, please give us a call to discuss your individual situation and we will offer a rental quote accordingly. While our website lists some general prices to help you plan, prices can change at any time so please write us for a quote.
