Renting An Event Tent

When you are hosting an event, it can be necessary to provide those attending it with effective shelter from the elements. An event tent can be an excellent choice in this regard as it can be affordable, quick to set up, and versatile.

Carefully Estimate The Square Footage That You Will Need

Before you can choose an event tent to rent, it is important to have a fairly accurate estimate for the amount of square footage that will be required. This can be a complex estimate to make as you will need to consider all of the seats, tables, and other equipment that may be needed for the event. Throughout the process of making this estimate, you should round up the space that you will need up as it will typically be better to have a little too much space than not enough.

Pay Extra For A Tent With A Frame

Another choice that you will have to make is whether to get a framed tent. These rentals will be more expensive, but they can also be a much more durable option. This is due to the fact that the frame will be able to reinforce the tent against strong winds, heavy rain, and other weather that could ruin the event for those under the tent. In addition to being a more durable option, a framed tent may also be made to be much larger due to the ability of the frame to support the weight of the tent's material. A frame can also allow for a more complex tent design, which may include multiple individual partitions.

Ensure The Tent Is Properly Set Up And Anchored

An improperly set up event tent can be at great risk of collapsing. This could ruin the event and result in much of the equipment that you are using potentially being ruined. Unfortunately, setting up these tents can be a complicated process, but you will not have to do this on your own. Many event tent rental services will be able to offer setup for their clients. As a result, you can reduce the risk of the tent being damaged during the setup as well as making sure that it will be stable for the entire event. You will want to allow the service enough time to set up the tent before the event, which may take up to a couple of hours if the tent that you have rented is particularly large or complex.
