Please be mindful of vehicle size prior to collecting your hire, e.g. our 2.4m trestle does not fit the boot of most cars and therefore requires a trailer, van, SUV or roof racks.
Overdue returns incur a daily 10% charge of the total invoice amount - please refer to our Terms and Conditions.
Delivery and Collection
We offer a delivery and collection service at a cost which is based on location and the amount of hire.
Our crew install all marquee structures which means you will be charged a delivery and collection cost. Delivery for structures can be as early as Wednesday or Thursday preceding your function. This gives you time to set up, decorate and let wet surfaces dry etc. These timelines are flexible to meet your requirements.
When measuring your free space you will need to allow an additional metre around the perimeter of the marquee for installation purposes i.e. a 6mx3m marquee requires a free space of 8mx5m. Free space includes no over-arching barriers such as gutters or branches.
Consider the surface - if soft e.g. grass we can peg (provided there is no irrigation or pipes) or if it's a hard surface, weights are required which incur additional costs. Sloped surfaces are generally not suitable for marquees.
We do offer site visits if you are not sure on marquee size or whether it will fit in your free space.
Our marquees are engineered structures which require installation and dismantling by our qualified crew only.
A delivery and collection fee applies to all marquee bookings.
