A propane tank, like a helium balloon, is full of gas, often present at backyard barbecues, and will fly away if not anchored properly. Fire up earthbound grills with today's Groupon: for $7, you get a 5-gallon propane-tank refill from Aurora Rents (a $15 value). This Groupon is valid at three locations in Shoreline and Seattle.
Aurora Rents has equipped do-it-yourselfers with tool rentals and home-improvement supplies for nearly 50 years. With today’s deal, Groupon holders can bring in a 20-pound canister and get it filled with 5 gallons of propane. After fuel-ups, full-bellied cisterns can be returned to grill-side seats, where they can fuel a packed calendar of summer cookouts.
Countless do-it-yourself projects would never have seen the light of day were it not for Aurora Rents—gardens would remain untended, furniture unsanded, bedrooms unpainted. Luckily, the locally owned and operated business has rented tools and equipment—all properly cared for—to northwestern craftspeople for 50 years. Equally as vital, each employee carries industry expertise around in his or her tool belt, and delights in providing insights, safety tips, and techniques for refinishing floors or shellacking homemade Trojan horses.
