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.


Ways to reduce stress

Marquee hire can (hopefully) be a busy business and during the summer you’re generally flat out. With that in mind you should try to reduce your stress whenever possible:

  • Have two mobile phones, a personal number for close family and friends that you rarely hand out and a business one that anyone and everyone can have. Turn the work phone off when you’re not working. Nothing breaks up your relaxing day off more than a work phone call that could have waited until the next work day. Incidentally turn your work phone off at night – the worst call we ever had was one at 4am asking if we hired napkins..
  • Buy a hands free kit – you will receive calls when you’re driving
  • Buy a live traffic sat-nav – it will save you travelling time and therefore improve your companies efficiency.
  • Have a pad of paper & pen with you everywhere

Customers like the idea of not being abandoned with their marquee, it gives great peace of mind if they have your mobile for any problems. On your side being able to turn the work phone off when you’re not working will help you relax away from the world of marquees.

Thanks for reading

Spencer
