HOW LONG IS A STANDARD RENTAL?
Most events take place on the weekend. In this instance, your rental supplies will be delivered/ picked up on Friday and returned that Monday.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A POLE TENT
AND A FRAME TENT?
Pole tents have center poles that hold up the canopy and are always staked into grass for tension and security. Frame tents do not have a center pole because their canopy is supported by a structured frame. Frame tents can be staked into the ground or weighted down with water barrels for additional price.

Please call our office to talk to our dedicated sales team, they will be able to assist you in finding the right solution. CAD designs are available after deposit for customers seeking more tailored solutions.
HOW MUCH SPACE WILL I NEED FOR THE TENT?
You will want to measure your area where the tent will go. You must add 5’ around the perimeter of the tent to allow for ropes and stakes. For example, if you need a 20’ x 40’ tent, you will need a minimum area of 25’ x 45’.
IS SIDEWALL INCLUDED IN A TENT RENTAL?
No. Sidewall is available for an additional charge and can be customized to suit your needs. Rent sidewall to block an unwanted view of a neighbor or enough to completely enclose your event.
