Frequently Asked Questions

How long is the standard hire period?

We like to give you as much value as possible and are happy to include up to 7 days hire from the set up day, at no addition cost.
Just talk to our team about this when making the booking as the standard hire period is 3 days.

How much space do I need for the marquee?

As a rule of thumb, our team will require a 1m working area around the outside of the marquee. If you are hiring a 8x20m marquee, we would require a 10x22m space.

Does my space need to be level?

In most cases no. If your site slopes or dips in any way, please talk to our team about this before accepting our quote.

What is considered “good truck access”?

Our marquees all arrive on flat deck trucks. They are 2.4m wide and 8m long. During the quoting process we will ask you if you have good truck access at the site. We consider this to mean getting the nose of the truck within 10m of the marquee site. If you are unsure, please talk to our team.

Are you available 24/7 during the time my marquee is erected?

Yes we are. You will have at least two cell phone number to call if you need anything during the hire period and we are happy to come out if need be.

What if the weather turns bad?

Our deluxe pavilion marquees will stand up to any weather conditions but if the weather is practically bad we may need to return to your site and put addition weights down to hold it down.

Can I assemble the deluxe marquees myself?

No. This is a specialised job done by trained professionals. We do offer a range of party tents that we allow clients to self install.

What are my choices of side walls?

We offer three choices. Solid white walls, church windows and completely clear walls that allow your guests to enjoy the view while protected from the elements.

Do you marquees require guy ropes?

NO. With our deluxe range of marquees we do not require guys ropes unless we are expecting over 100kmph winds where we would storm last the tent to additional security.

How long would a typical wedding take to install?

We aim to be in and out on the same day. This usually means arriving on site at the crack of dawn and working into the night. The average time would be around 14 hours.
