Why is the pricing listing "from" ? 

Prices are listed "from" until an event is created. When an event is created, the site is set to list the pricing specific to your event length. Creating an event will also display product availability and allow you to add products to your cart for a complete costing including delivery and collection.

Marquees and Structures

How can I request a marquee quote or place a booking?

Getting a quote or placing a marquee order is very easy, but marquees require some specialist experience from our staff to prepare an accurate quote before a marquee event can be confirmed and booked. To begin, you can either fill out one of our simple online marquee quote request forms, or if you prefer, you can give our friendly staff a call on 1300 472 793 and have a chat about what you would like. Once we have all the information we need, we'll prepare you an accurate quote within 24 hours and 'share' it with you via email for you to review.

How do I determine what size marquee I will require?

Making sure you have the right-sized marquee is important. It’s also easy. Simply find the style marquee you would like, fill out a ‘marquee quote request’ form and our specialist marquee staff will promptly advise you on the appropriate size for your event. As a general rule though, for a cocktail event you would need to allow appromiately 1-1.5m² per person, and for a sit-down event, about 2-2.5m² - all dependent on what other items (ie. band, dance-floor, bar, etc) you would like to add to the space.

How do I know if my site if suitable for installing a marquee?

We are more than happy to measure the space you have available. Simply find the style marquee you would like, fill out a ‘marquee quote request’ form and note on it that you would like a site inspection, and we’ll be happy to arrange a visit.

When will my marquee be erected?

It’s most likely that your marquee will be erected several days before the event, giving you plenty of time for decorating. At the very minimum, your marquee will be in place the day before your event

Can I have my furniture added to my marquee event?

In most cases, combining your furniture and marquee order is possible. Once you have received your 'shared' event from us that includes all your marquee needs you are more than welcome to 'add' any products listed on our website.
