3 Points To Keep In Mind When Renting A Marquee

Know the head count

While marquees do give you the flexibility to host more quests that most hotel ballrooms will allow, it is still best to have a good idea how many people will be in attendance. This allows you to select the right tent size to accommodate your guests, equipment, vendors, staff, etc. If you overestimate you can end up with a marquee that’s enormous and empty or a small one with everyone tightly squeezed inside. Logistics are important.

Do not reserve at the last minute

This should be a no brainer. Under no circumstance should you hire a service at the very last minute. Working on the assumption that it is easy to find one is never a good idea especially during certain seasons when weddings and parties are abundant. To get the best marquee at the best rate, book one as early as you possibly can.

Supplier insurance

It is always good practice to check your Glasgow service provider’s insurance coverage. Overlooking this detail can turn any happy event from good to bad in a blink of an eye. The lack of public liability insurance could easily put you as the organiser or host at risk should any person be injured or could leave you liable for any repairs and damages that occur during the event.
