Frequently Asked Questions
We deliver and set your tent up one or more days prior to your event, which allows you time to prepare for your event. Take down will occur one or more days following your event to allow time for cleanup.
We neatly stack tables and chairs in the center of the tent so you can organize your seating as you see fit. We request tables and chairs be neatly restacked after the event.
Also, please remove all party streamers, garbage, coolers, and other personal items in advance of tent take down.
We will need unobstructed access to the site for carrying tents, tables, chairs, and any other equipment. Walking distance for setup should be kept to a minimum. Drive up access with a pick-up truck is preferred.
When considering if a given tent will fit a tight space, use the following dimensions. Add 8 feet to the length of the tent you are considering and 8 feet to the width. For example, a 20×40 tent will require a 28×48 footprint. This allows adequate space for the guy wires, which extend 4 feet out from the tent. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with the certain size tent fitting your preferred site, please contact us. We are happy to do a free site visit and help you with the measurements.
What landscape or underground utilities should I consider when choosing a tent location on the property?
Flat and fairly level works best. Our tent stakes are 2 to 3 feet long. Be aware of underground utilities such as electric, gas, water, or septic.
Our tent center poles are 12’6 or 14′ at their highest point. Please consider overhead obstructions, such as powerlines or tree branches. Our perimeter side poles are 7′ in height.
