I have asked Spencer King from DIY Marquees to give consumers useful advice when purchasing a marquee.
Pop up Marquees are a very clever invention but although all of the different designs use a similar folding mechanism the quality of the structures vary greatly. The quality of any pop up marquee comes from the quality of the frame, the quality of the covers and the build quality. At DIY Marquees we only sell the heaviest duty design of pop up marquee. This is designed for marquee hire businesses or those wanting a more reliable and durable structure than available elsewhere.
When wishing to buy party tent also consider what accessories you may need – tie downs and flooring are often required but interior linings and marquee lighting turn the party tent in to a far more impressive venue.
Marquee lighting takes many forms but the most popular are festoon lighting or marquee chandeliers all operated on a dimmer system for ease of use. You may not require accessories when originally buying the party tent but knowing that a wide range of accessories and spare parts are available gives you greater future proofing on your investment.
