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.


6m x 6m DIY Marquee up for viewing

6m x 6m DIY Marquee
Last week we put up a 6mx6m DIY Marquee for the pub at the back of our factory, it’s going to stay up all summer so if anyone wants to view a marquee feel free to go round any time with or without us. People who have visited our factory will know we don’t work in the lap of luxury here (our desks are fitted in around the stock not the other way round), we don’t have a nice showroom. So having a marquee at the back of us is very useful. Hopefully we’ll get time to fit a marquee lining but there never seems enough hours in the day.

Incidentally it took us 55 minutes to erect but we reckon if we weren’t explaining to the people watching and ran a bit we could get it down to 45mins.

Isn’t it sad I have to protect/ruin our photos by adding our website address? If you’ve got a website with lots of photos then I’m afraid you should do too. To give you an idea in the last 4 weeks I’ve been informed of:

  • four different people stealing our photos
  • two incidents of attempting to steal our marquee planning tool
  • one incident of a competitor copying our instructions!

Copying our designs I can understand, just because we were the first people to offer this style of marquee with 500gsm PVC, linings, groundbars included etc doesn’t mean no one else can do it.

It’s always flattering having people copying you but I (understandably) draw the line at stealing. Try and check out other marquee hire companies, especially local ones just to make sure no one is stealing your photos.

Thanks for reading
