DIY Marquees are so passionate about the Marquees they sell and the additional services they offer. With so with the many years’ experience in event planning they offer some professional sound advice on all aspects of purchasing a marquee and starting your own marquee company.
When wanting to start my own marquee hire business they were by far the most experienced company we dealt with and after we decided to go with their large product range and brilliant after sales service I am pleased to say we now have a successful marquee hire business. If it wasn’t for their assistance from start to finish we would not have exceeded.
Many people assume it’s easy to start a marquee company with the misconception it’s a simple to go and choose the marquees they want to use for hiring out. It’s not as simple as that. There are hundreds of different options and things to think about for example: weather, durability, marquee designs, what size marquee do I need? Etc. etc.
DIY Marquees have a fantastic blog whereby they share ideas and marquee planning advice.
I found this informative article on Marquee Heating, these are all things to think about and DIY Marquee will make sure they are covered.
During Spring and summer months heating is generally only required to take the chill off later in the evening. During autumn and especially winter you should heat the marquee for a reasonable time before guests arrive to ensure a successful event.
Use a heater with a powerful fan
Test the heating several days before the event (at the same time of day) to make sure it works and is sufficient for the space
In the winter have the heating on for at least an hour before people arrive. On arrival guests should walk in to a wall of warmth, if they walk in to a cold marquee they will not warm up for the whole function
If possible use several smaller heaters rather than one large one to create a consistent temperature in your marquee
Aim one heater towards the entrance, think of a high street shop – they have a heater above the door to ensure the temperature inside stays at a constant level
Use a halogen heater, cabinet heater or any other kind of infra-red heater without a fan. They are not powerful enough for larger marquees
Have anything close to or touching a heater (sounds obvious but still worth mentioning)
DIY Marquees not only sell marquees they also provide lighting, heating and flooring options.
