Areas of Expertise

Event Specialists

With nearly 30 years of industry experience, DC Rentals has the expertise to handle productions of any size and scope. We provide more than just two-way radios and we'll go to any lengths necessary to bring your vision to life and create a truly memorable event.

Marathons & Sporting Events

We have been working with DC Rentals for over 15 years now. In 2011, DC Rentals became the Commercial Communications Captains of the B.A.A. Boston Marathon. They took over all aspects with regards to commercial two-way communications from identifying need to training, distribution and collection.
DC Rentals is carefully moving us into newer technology. Their service is excellent. They are reliable and attend many meetings throughout the year in preparation of the events. DC Rentals has had no problem handling the size of our events or meeting any and all of our deadlines.
— Dave McGillivrary, DMSE, Inc.

From the Boston Marathon to the Special Olympics, DC Rentals handles a multitude of national large-scale sporting events.  With thousands of radios in our rental fleet, we are able to keep your team and vendors connected course-wide or venue-wide throughout the duration of your event.  For larger events, we recommend a Unified Command Center, a hub where personnel can monitor the event from a centralized location. 

Sporting Events:

  • Special Olympics

  • The 2016 NHL Winter Classic

  • World Team Tennis


  • The Boston Marathon

  • The New York Marathon

  • The New Jersey Marathon

DC Rentals provides communication support for the Special Olympics, Massachusetts Summer Games, our largest event, as well as our other statewide competitions. Their equipment is state-of-the-art with great ease of use. Since we rely primarily on volunteers to run our venues (close to 1500 at the 2001 Special Olympics Summer Games at Harvard, BU and MIT) we need to have communication equipment that is flawless. DC Rentals comes through every time!

DC Rentals has provided us state of the art communication equipment, which has resolved and eliminated problems in communications we were facing on a daily basis. Thanks to DC Rentals, we are no longer faced with the stress in locating and communicating with other members of the organization. Thank You DC Rentals!

Event Management

I’ve worked in the event industry for 10+ years and this was my first time using DC Rentals for communications for a somewhat complicated event with multiple locations spread out over a 50+ mile distance. Frank from DC Rentals took the time to discuss and understand what our needs were, within a very short turn around time, and helped us problem solve to create a solid communications plan. My experience with DC Rentals allowed me to go into my event feeling assured that my needs were covered and that, at any moment I had issues, they would be available to help problem solve and make sure we had the coverage we needed. Their customer service is excellent - Frank checked in with me on event day (a Sunday) to make sure things were working well. I would absolutely use them again!
