If you’re planning an outdoor event, you’re likely to start booking (or at least inquiring about) rental companies. And one of the first things that you need to secure is the tent. However, you have to be aware of your needs before you rent one.
Here are some things you should consider when looking for a tent rental:
1. Space for Setup
Before you go book your tent supplier, first check out the venue and measure the space you’ll have. Bear in mind that you have to account space for every single thing including the number of guests you’ll be inviting. Note that frame tents consume less space while pole tents require an extra 5 feet on each side for staking allowance.
2. Number of Guests
The number of people you’d be inviting will play a big role in deciding what kind of tent you need. You should consider your budget as well. Usually, the cheaper option is a pole tent, but if space is going to be a problem, then choose frame tents
You also have to consider what kind of terrain you’ll have with your chosen venue. Will the tent be setup on grass or concrete? You have to note that when your venue has a concrete ground, it’s better to rent frame tents, but if it’s a flat grassy area, go for pole tents.
4. Canopy Style
There are different canopy styles and you have to consider what you need before you choose one.
Structured frame tents have no center (internal) poles so there isn’t an accident-prone pole hanging out. Rooftop tents, on the other hand, have a shorter installation time and better coverage. Festival frame tents have a high swooping peak and tensioned fabric which is perfect for uncomplicated installation, and wrinkle-free cross cable mast support system. A clear top frame tent is a vinyl canopy, providing natural lighting in the day and a perfect night for stargazing. Finally, sailcloth tents are waterproof and are translucent, so there is adequate natural lighting.
Choosing a tent to rent is a crucial part of planning for an outdoor event. It has to be the right fit for your needs. This guide will help you in finding the right one.
