Tents provide shelter from the elements and create a cozy, inviting atmosphere for your guests.

Keep reading to explore the key elements to consider that will make your tent rental experience a breeze.

How Many Guests Will You Have?

The most important question to address when you rent a tent is the number of guests you expect at your event. The size of your outdoor tent rental must comfortably accommodate all your attendees, providing enough space for seating, dining, dancing, and any other activities you have in mind. Overcrowding can make your guests uncomfortable, so be sure to have an estimate of your guest count before selecting a tent size.

What Are You Planning When You Rent a Tent?

Consider the purpose of your event and what will be happening beneath the party tent rental. Are you planning a sit-down dinner, a cocktail party, or a casual gathering? The type of activities and the seating arrangement needed will dictate the tent’s layout and accessories you may need, such as tables, chairs, a dance floor, or a stage. Plan accordingly to determine the right size tent and ensure a seamless flow.

Where Is Your Tent Going?

Location matters when you rent a tent. You will need to determine the precise location on your property or event venue where the tent will be set up. Considering any nearby obstacles like trees, utility lines, or uneven terrain that might affect the tent’s placement. Additionally, consider factors like accessibility for your guests and the ease of transporting and installing a large event tent.

What Type of Ground Will the Tent Be On?

Understanding the ground beneath your tent is crucial for the stability of the tent and the safety of your guests. Different tent types require specific ground conditions. For instance, pole tents typically need staked anchoring. Meanwhile, frame tents can be set up on various surfaces, including asphalt or concrete. Communicate with your tent rental company about the ground conditions so they can recommend the appropriate anchoring methods and ensure a secure setup.

What Experience and Qualifications Does the Tent Company Have?

Selecting the right tent rental company to work with shouldn’t be overlooked when you intend to rent a tent. Research and vet potential companies by reviewing their experience, qualifications, and customer feedback.

I rented a tent, tables and chairs from Peak Party Rentals for the second time recently. They are great! Kieran is easy to work with, communicates well, and set up and took down the tent when expected. Fair pricing and excellent customer service. I highly recommend!
