What You Need to Know About Tent Rentals

When considering a tent rental , it’s important to consider how the specifications of the tent might meet the needs of your special occasion, wedding, or corporate event. Choose the size and accessories that will make your tent rental as comfortable as possible for your guests, and be sure to use a company that offers professional setup.

Different Tent Sizes and Shapes Serve Different Purposes

Differently-sized tents accommodate different numbers of guests and party functions. For cocktail parties and receptions with standing room only, plan on providing eight sq. feet per person. For cocktail parties with partial seating, plan on a tent that accommodates 10 sq. feet per person. If you’re planning to have dinner or banquet seating, eight foot rectangular tables require 12 sq. ft per person and 72” round tables call for 15 sq. ft per person of tent space.

Accessories Can Help Make Your Tent More Comfortable

When deciding if you need to add accessories to your tent rental, consider the season, time of day, and activities that will be happening inside. Rent tent heaters if the weather forecast is on the cooler side, or if the day looks like it will be hot, consider renting a pedestal fan for powerful air circulation. A Port-A-Cool system is capable of cooling a 30’ x 30’ area 30 degrees. For maximum heating and cooling efficiency, you’ll want to rent tent sidewalls, which come with or without windows depending on whether you want more sunlight inside. A Port-A-Floor tent-flooring accessory is great for adding stability to a tent that’s located on grass or natural surfaces.

Professional Setup Is a Safer Option

Most large tents require installation by properly trained staff. A professional can ensure that your tent is set up safely for a variety of outdoor activities, and knows the steps to take in locating and avoiding any underground or overhead utilities.
