Frequently asked questions
Here, you’ll find answers to common queries about marquee types, sizes, setup, and more. If you don’t find the answers you’re looking for in our FAQ section, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We’re always ready to assist you with any additional questions you have.
How will the site need to be prepared?
Irrespective of which style of floor you are using, the overall finish will benefit from being laid on the flattest surface possible. Therefore, please cut the grass as short as possible prior to our arrival. Any small dips in the ground should be filled with soil or sand. The flatter the site, the better the flooring will lie. Please also remove all garden items and foliage from the site and from our access points prior to our arrival.
What happens if we require any last-minute changes?
We will always endeavour to accommodate your changes subject to the items being in stock, and having sufficient time to arrange delivery. Please be aware that your confirmation document lists every item that is coming to the site. If you are unsure of any detail, please do not hesitate to check with us at any stage.
Are the marquees warm?
We use space heaters that sit outside the marquee and blow hot air in through the diffuser. They are thermostatically controlled so will maintain an ambient temperature throughout your hire.
What checks need to be done prior to the hire?
It is your responsibility to check that there are no services running beneath the marquee site. Please check for and clearly mark out any pipes/cables. Please also bear in mind that our Traditional Marquee is supported by guy ropes, so a 40ft x 50ft marquee actually uses around a 50ft x 60ft area.
