Our Legacy

In the early 90’s, Joe Hand Sr. got his start in the rental business as Anthony Rentals in a small building with humble beginnings in Shirley, NY renting Vans and Trucks.  In 1994, his son Joe Jr. joined him and soon realized there was more to rentals than just the vans and trucks.  It grew out of a truck rental and shipping supply center into rentals for small parties and backyard events.

The first tent was acquired along with a small inventory of tables and chairs and over the course of a few years; they decided to start Camelot Party Rentals with intentions to focus on party rentals.  Their vision, along with strong family values and superior service and equipment became a part of their business strategy.

The great response we were getting from our customers right away was a sure sign we made the right decision!  Since then, we have lost Joe Sr. in 2002, but we carried on his legacy by having Lori, his daughter join his son Joe with the Camelot team in 2004 and since then, Lori has been an integral part of Camelot’s success and future.  It has been her vision and foresight that has made us one of the premier wedding, corporate event and personal party rental companies in the area.

We strive to make every event the best event and look forward to offering many more years of memorable rental services to the New York Metro area!  We hope we can make a magical event for you too!
