Are the marquees safe?
All of our marquees are bought from reputable suppliers who comply to industry standards. We are members of MUTA, renowned as the Association for highly regarded marquee hire companies. We and our marquee teams get audited by MUTA annually to ensure we comply to their guidelines and requirements of membership including health & safety. Our installation teams are fully trained, with team leaders holding Temporary Structures NVQs.

Can I run an extension lead from my house to the marquee?
To power light usage items, such as lights, within a distance of 30m this is usually practical.

Can we have heating in winter?
Yes we can provide thermostatically controlled heaters and solid doors to help keep the heat in within marquees in colder weather.

Can you supply other things apart from the marquee?
We can supply everything apart from the food and music – although we can recommend suppliers who can help with this.

Do I need flooring in my marquee?
Not always, it depends on your requirements & site conditions - including if the event is daytime or evening or at what time of year.

How are the marquees in bad weather?
They are substantial structures with PVC covers as described above, they are wind loaded up to 70 mph in normal conditions and are able to be used in the snow, as long as the roof is kept clear of snow and the marquee is heated inside.

How long does it take to put up the marquee?
It depends on the size of the marquee. Most weddings are completed in a day, however more complicated events will take longer.

How many guests can I accommodate in a marquee?
This varies depending on the space you have available, whether your guests will be standing or seated, whether you require room for a reception area, seating area or dance floor, space for a buffet or bar? Talk to us to discuss what would best suit your needs.

How much does a marquee cost and what is included in that cost?
The size of the marquee determines the cost, the prices on the website show the charge for up to a 3 day event for a marquee erected on to grass in the south east of England, including erection and dismantling by our own staff. We can erect marquees on to other surfaces, which would be subject to a site survey and additional charges. Costs for events running for more than 3 days can be quoted individually.

What insurance cover do I need?
The hirer is responsible for any equipment which is lost, stolen or damaged whilst on site, therefore we would recommend that you insure the items to cover payment of the replacement costs if any of these eventualities were to happen. Household insurers may be able to add cover to your existing policy or there are insurers who provide insurance specifically for events or weddings. Alternatively, do ask us about Damage Waiver Cover for Events. Insurance for hired in plant for businesses should usually be able to provide cover for long term hires.
