In the UK we tend to hire party tents but customers are starting to realise you can buy and keep a high quality marquee for the same price!
Some people have reservations when buying a marquee and think hiring is a better option. Below we have listed the most common reasons and explained how UK Tents have completely changed the game:
- Limited storage – Our marquees have been designed to be as compact as possible making storage less of an issue.
- Difficult to build – The UK Tents brand of party tents are by far the easiest to build on the market. We have the perfect blend of high quality materials, strong structures and all marquees are easy to assemble.
- Only needed for one day – UK Tents are so competitively priced just one use is commonly the same price as hiring a marquee for one day. The resale price is also very high as many people are looking for used marquees to buy (We are asked daily if we sell second hand marquees)
- No building experience – Our marquees all come with easy to follow manuals so no experience is needed. We also have a team of building experts willing to help you can contact them on: firstname.lastname@example.org or 01234 233 234.
Get Creative With Your Party Tent
The great thing about building a marquee is the fact you can have it exactly your way. From where you place the entrance to the decoration, our marquees are so customizable the possibilities are endless. We have been sent some great party pictures over the years and here are some of our favourites:
Benefits To Buying a Marquee
The obvious benefit in buying a marquee is you get to keep and reuse it. Our party tents are all designed for regular short term use and some of our customers have had the same marquee for many years. Our PE range is a fantastic option for a few days use at any one time and all of our PVC ranges can last forever! Another benefit in buying a UK Tent marquee is the no limited time restriction. If you was to hire a marquee it’s common to be charged by the month, week or even day so it could work our much more cost effective to own a marquee.
Many marquee hire companies use our marquees – One company called Marquee World provide party tents for short and long term hire. They only use UK Tents products and the feedback they receive from customers is extremely positive. I asked for a quote from The Real Marquee Company who also use our marquees…
UK Tents have provided us with top quality marquee products for a just over year now and we haven’t got a single complaint. The PE tents are cheap and they do a great job if we need cover in a hurry, the Economy range is ideal when we have a 1-2 week hire, we use the premium range for a 2-3 week hire job and the professional range is perfect for anything longer than that. The team also get back to us promptly (which isn’t common in this industry) and the stock levels are second to none.
Make it a Permanent Structure
If you secure your marquee properly there’s no reason why it shouldn’t last a very long time. We have reports from some of our customers that they have built a UK Tent marquee and left it erected for years! This has been for multiple uses such us: Swimming pool cover, storage, adding capacity for restaurants/bars, personal training and much more. If you are looking to use any of our marquees for long term use we recommend the following products to make sure it doesn’t go anywhere:
