Roads closed in downtown Iowa City, that is when Big Ten Rentals swoops into action. We dropped off a 45-foot bleacher with plastic stanchions for the judges of the parade and several bike barricades for crowd control. You may think that is all, but there was more. Several individuals rented flatbed trailers from us to serve as the bases of the floats in the parade. Plus don’t forget “GO HAWKS” written on the back of our electric vehicle.

Big Ten Rentals delivered and installed two of our 45′ long by 10-Row hydraulic bleachers to the brand new athletics/football field at the Mediapolis high school in Iowa. The hydraulic folding mechanism powered by a 12-volt on-board battery makes it so a single person can set these up in 10 minutes. They will be there for four weeks for the four home football games right in a row. This can be a busy time for bleacher rental here at Big Ten Rentals.
