A Short Bit About me

I'm Spencer King, an ex-marquee erector. This blog is designed to help those running a hire business or thinking of starting. I don't claim to know everything, I'm just trying to help people avoid the mistakes I made! Check out our event planning section for advice on planning your own marquee event. Please contact us if we can help or offer advice in any way.


What to name your marquee hire business?

First off if you’ve got marquees up at the moment -make sure you fire up heaters to get the snow off the roof! We’ve got a pub next door (I know, it’s surprising we get any work done!) and their lightweight gazebo is now flatpacked having collapsed under the weight of 8″ of snow -why they took their DIY Marquee down but left that up I don’t know.

If you’re starting up a hire company one of the first things to think about is what are you going to call yourselves?

Something funny? There’s lots of play on words available in the marquee industry – too intents, pleasing people with your erections (suprisingly under-used double entendre!), able to cover everything etc etc.

Funny names make you memorable but you might be cringing in a few years time and it doesn’t actually tell customers anything about you.

Personally I think the best name is descriptive. So calling yourself Bradford marquees or Yorkshire marquees etc – that way customers know where you’re from or the area you cover. It also means you’ll appear higher in google for those search terms. The only downside is if in years to come you want to expand to a new area.

Sorry for the short blog, it’s taken me nearly two hours to get in this morning (5 mile journey) and I’m giving blood this afternoon so I should probably get some work done 😉

Thanks for reading.

Spencer.
