Most of our tents are canopy tents. They require a clear, flat grassy area. Our tents need to be staked down at least three feet outside of the perimeter of the tent.

The 20x20 frame tents can can go on grass or pavement. 

Because deliveries, set-ups, and pick-ups are dependent on the weather, we try to schedule them a couple days before the event date. Typically, if your event is on a Saturday, we will contact you on the Wednesday before the event to schedule the delivery.
No. As long you pay in advance and mark out where you want the tent/rental equipment, you do not need to be home for deliveries. As long as we have access to the rental equipment, you do not need to be home for the pick-up.
Your rental is for the event date. Although you may have the rental equipment for several days, you will only be charged for one date. Please note: We may need to come out early on the day after your event date to pick up the rental equipment.

The remaining balance of your order is due at delivery.

We suggest that you mark out where the sprinkler system runs (including sprinkler heads). This will decrease the chances of sprinkler system damage.
