FAQsKnowing where to start when hiring a marquee can be a daunting experience. At Tents N Events we pride ourselves on our friendly approach and proven track record for outstanding customer service.
We have often thought of some of the concerns that our customers might consider before contacting us directly, outlining some of the more common ones below.
‘How much does it cost to hire a marquee?’Most of our marquees are modular in design. This means that, depending on the style, they can be used in various lengths to fit/suit the desired venue. As such, the price can be outlined to the customer on a ‘bay-by-bay’ basis. On our ‘Clear-span’ marquees this is in 10 foot (3m) lengths and on our ‘Pole tents’ it is in 15 foot (4.5m) increments. So depending on the amount of people that you need to entertain or seat, we can let you know the minimum and maximum size of tent that would be needed to accommodate your event.
So the next question is likely to be ‘How big a marquee do I need?‘That depends on what kind of event you are catering for and what budget you have allocated to ‘The Big Day’. With the vagaries of the British climate we can never be too sure what the weather will have in store for us on any given day. We recommend always catering for the worst, as this way the special event will always be carried off with aplomb and our clients high expectations met. So imagine that in the worst-case scenario, all guests will have to shelter under the marquee and the festivities can go ahead as planned under this cover, with disruption kept to a minimum. With our industry experience, we will advise you as to the specific size of marquee that will accommodate your required guests, should adverse weather be an issue.
‘What sort of marquee do I need?’This does obviously depend on the individual event and venue location, something which we would advise on our site visits. These are free (no obligation) consultations to help you best plan for your individual needs and expectations. For those who have not finalised a venue as of yet, we can still meet to discuss options prior to this, as well as recommend one of our many partnered sites.
‘So how does the marquee hire process work?’Having conducted our site visit and satisfied that all eventualities are covered, we would only confirm your booking once a 20$ deposit was paid. Until this time we reserve the right not to obligate quotes (as we often receive enquiries one or two years in advance) and it is only upon satisfactory clearance of funds, that our commitment to you is secured.
We would ensure that the discussions held during our site visit were documented in the form of a site plan and that the quote would become a firm order. Again, please see the page of our proud testimonials as well as our T&C’s.
