We gathered a list of the most frequently asked questions from our customers about folding tables. Hopefully, this information will help you make an informed purchase and select the best table for your needs.  

How much do folding tables cost?

Pricing will vary depending on the various features of the folding table, however; expect to spend between $65 and $400 for a 30-inch x 72-inch rectangular table and between $80 and $475 for a 60-inch round table. This does not include shipping. Volume discounts may be available on orders of 10 or more tables.

If you consider folding tables an investment and hope to purchase replacement tables less often, consider purchasing a higher-end table. You will spend more upfront, but you will likely spend less in the long run. Look for tables will a minimum 10-year warranty.

How do I know which table is the best fit for my property?

If your property hosts a lot of events and requires quick room turnover, durability is one of the most important considerations in a folding table. You want to make sure you have tables that can stand up to heavy use as well as being dropped and rolled over rough surfaces. The tabletop edge design and corner construction are also important. Look for an impact-resistant tabletop that won’t be damaged by accidental dropping.

In addition, look for longevity in the tabletop surface. Look for commercial-grade laminate that can withstand contact with hot objects as well as being scratch-resistant. More durable laminate means you will spend less on maintenance like refinishing and sanding.

Also, take table weight into consideration, especially for high-turn areas. Look for features such as a table leg locking mechanism which will make setup and takedown easier.

Which folding tables are the easiest to clean and disinfect?

Linenless tables are very easy to clean and disinfect using common wipes and sprays including Lysol. Plus, linen tablecloths are more likely to absorb germs and bacteria.

When purchasing plastic folding tables, look for ones with a smooth finish which is easier to sanitize.

What should I look for in folding table carts?

Look for durable carts that are easy to load, unload, and maneuver. Purchase table carts that are designed to avoid scratching tables during loading and unloading.

The dimensions of a cart when loaded is also important. You want to make sure it can fit through the doorways of your facility and that they will fit inside your storage area.

How do I choose between rectangular and round folding tables?

Both types of tables have benefits and it really depends on the size and capacity of your facility as well as what type of events you host most often.

Rectangular tables are often used for multi-purpose needs such as community events, food service, dining, and training. Round tables are most often used for banquets, weddings, and other formal dining occasions.
