A short post today as:
a. The factory’s closed and we’re not back at work until Monday 5th so this is eating into looking-after-baby-daughter time!
b. Our best friends wedding was last night and computer screens aren’t great with hangovers..
So thank you for reading over 2008, I realise I write a lot of gabble but hopefully there’s a few things somewhere in my posts that you find useful in running or starting up your marquee hire business.
Something I find myself repeating quite frequently over the phone is “what I’d do if I was starting up a marquee hire company again” so I’ll start writing posts covering that. If it goes down well I could bundle them up in one place for future readers.
For those who are already running their own hire businesses I’d appreciate any thoughts or ideas you have to include in this beginners guide. I’ve also got some ideas on offering some free (that’s f-r-e-e) promotional techniques or website features for you. Watch this space 🙂
For those of you who run temporary water supplies to marquees (mainly those who offer catering too) you should be aware that research is being done into providing a British Standard for water quality in temporary structures. No doubt the research will take a long time and may come to nothing but it’s something you should keep an eye on in case there are requirements you don’t satisfy.
As always thank you for reading, have a happy new year and let’s hope 2009 is the year of the marquee!
