Choosing The Right Tent To Rent

Banquet Tent

If you are planning an event and looking at event tent rentals you might be overwhelmed with all the options available. It is important that you know how to choose the right tent and when you should look at renting it. All of these factors could impact the event you are planning and how smoothly it all goes.

When You Should Rent The Tent

A lot of people make the mistake of leaving the tent rental too late. It is important that you look into this fairly early in the planning process. The fact that renting a tent can also be expensive is why you have to factor it in as soon as possible. In fact, it is recommended that you look at booking the tent at the same time as the venue to ensure that everything is in place.

The Size Of The Tent

Before you can rent the tent you need to know how big it needs to be. The problem is that you may not have the exact numbers for your event by the time you are booking the rental. However, at this point, you will generally have a rough estimate of home many people will be attending. Once you have an estimate you can use the tent sizing charts that most rental companies will have on their website to determine the size of the tent.

As a rule of thumb, you should be looking for the largest square tent that your venue will be able to handle. Square tents are recommended because they have a higher ceiling. This will help to keep the tent cool so that your guests are not uncomfortable. It is also easier to keep all of your guests included in the event by having them seating in a square tent.

The Type Of Tent

Once you know the size of the tent you have to consider which type of tent you are getting. There are 2 commonly used event tent styles and they are pole tents and frame tents. Each of these tent types has their benefits and drawbacks that you need to consider.

The pole then is more aesthetically pleasing and less expecting. You will not have to cover the frame and they are easily and quicker to set up. However, they could have center poles to ensure they stay up and they will need to be staked into the ground. Another problem is that these tents require clearance on all sides which is not always possible.

The frame tent can be placed on any surface such as asphalt and rooftops. It can also be attached together giving you more options with the setup and there will be no central poles. However, they will always cost more than pole tents and the frame will be visible from inside the tent. Frame tents also take longer to set up, but they can stand for much longer.
