The Mini Express specializes in trackless train rentals in the Los Angeles county area. All of our units are 100% electrical uniquely handcrafted and are second to none in detail and craftsmanship. Many of our trains have operated in major shopping malls across California and Arizona. If you want entertainment for a birthday party, festival, private event or work gathering, our trackless train rentals are perfect for all crowds.
We’ve been in business for over 10 years. Our first business started as a general party rental company, catering to the Los Angeles metropolitan areas. After designing and building our first mini electric train, we started renting it to private parties, corporate events, church events, and city parades.
While working at a private event in Los Angeles, we were approached by a high executive of a national mall company. They mentioned to us the possibility of opening one of our units in one of their shopping malls. And then, the rest was history! During the next several years, our presence in major shopping mall chains in the United States increased steadily. We’ve operated in the Los Angeles, San Francisco, and the Phoenix metropolitan areas with tremendous success.
We know that we’re not your only option when it comes to trackless train rentals. With The Mini Express, our experience and knowledge will provide the perfect entertainment for your next party or event. Let us show you why you should choose us for your next trackless train rental!
We use 100% electric units.
99% of our competitors use gasoline-powered lawn mower tractors to pull their trains.
We use a top of the line sound system with all your favorite children’s songs.
All you will hear with our competitors is a noisy lawn mower tractor that will produce and share gas fumes with your family and friends.
Our units were designed exclusively for The Mini Express by professional mechanical engineers. No other company has the same design.
Their trains are not as appealing and many of them are built in someone’s garage or backyard.
You can be sure that we will show up on time with a professional, clean, and well-dressed train conductor.
Chances are that you will get a guy wearing jeans and a T-shirt.
When you choose us, you are choosing a professional company that only does trackless train rentals on a full time basis.
The majority of them are “weekend/part-time” companies. They hardly answer their phone lines and their customer service is insufficient.
We NEVER outsource our reservations.
Many of them subcontract their reservations. Our competitors are just companies providing the reservation service and then outsourcing their services.
We are one of very few national companies that meet all of the strict requirements set by national mall companies to operate in shopping malls.
You simply cannot have a lawn mower tractor operate inside a shopping mall.
All of our units are sparkling and clean. We service our units weekly and immediately take care of any cosmetic and mechanical needs.
Many carry old and overused units.
We carry $2 million liability insurance.
Most of them carry a one million dollar liability insurance, and some of them don’t carry anything at all.
