Monahan Party Rentals

Our Team

In 1976 Dick and Joan Monahan opened Taylor Rental Center providing small equipment rentals to the Twin Tiers. At the time the business offered a small variety of party rental items. In 1993 the Monahan family changed the name of the business to Monahan Party and Equipment Rentals and began to offer a larger selection of party rental items. As the years went by the demand for equipment rentals began to decrease and the family found themselves more involved in the party rental industry. In 1997 the family made the decision to become strictly a party rental business altering the name of the business to Monahan Party Rentals. Today Monahan Party Rentals specialize in providing the highest quality party rental supplies. They own the largest selection of linens, china and silverware in the area and are frequently referred to as the premier party rental center in the Finger Lakes region. .
