Marquee Hire Questions

This depends on a number of factors e.g. you will need a larger marquee if your guests are to be seated as opposed to standing. If you call our office we’ll be happy to advise you as to what size marquee you’ll require.

Most small events don’t require a site visit. However if the event venue has complications that can’t be resolved in our booking process, or it’s a larger more complex event, then we would usually provide a site visit. All site visits would be at the earliest convenience after we receive event and venue information. Site visits are subject to a small fee which will be added to the deposit once the order is confirmed with us.

Our marquees can serve as an ‘extension’ or awning to a building if the space is suitable. Covered walkways are also possible. We always do our best to gutter our marquees to buildings if requested by the client.

Although it’s easier when marquees are erected on level ground, marquees can be erected on uneven ground.
