You’ve collected your quotes and had a site visit from your short list to ensure that your property is suitable but before you make the final decision on your marquee supplier what are the important questions to tie down?

  1. What exactly is included in the package?

You don’t want to agree for a price for marquee hire only to then discover that flooring, lighting, heating, covers, call out charges and other necessary elements are charged additionally. Carron Marquees list items individually on your quotation so you know exactly what is being supplied.  Items can be added/deleted as necessary to meet your requirements.

  1. Do you have appropriate insurance?

All Carron Marquees equipment is insured against loss during the period of hire and includes Public Liability of £10m which is one of the highest possible in the industry.   Carron Marquees insurance is included in your package price and not added as a percentage of your equipment costs.

  1. How long will I have the marquee for?

Some marquee companies may provide and set-up your marquee a day or two in advance of your event as part of your package. Others may not allow for the marquee to be set-up until the day of the event itself. Tie down your erection and strike dates as early as possible and remember that if your marquee is at a venue they may also have restrictions which need to be communicated to your Marquee supplier.  Carron Marquees can be flexible on dates providing we have adequate notice.

  1. What do I do about power for lighting, caterer etc?

Power requirements are largely dependent on your caterer. Carron Marquees has its own generators and will liaise directly with your caterer and any other suppliers to ensure that you have adequate provision.

  1. What happens on the day of our wedding/event.

Carron Marquees will visit on the morning of your event to check that all is in order, lighting, generators, etc. You will also be given an emergency contact number – for your peace of mind!
