What Kind of Tent is Right for Your Upcoming Event?
Choosing Which Party Tent Rentals Are Best for Your Event
If you want your next event to go as smoothly as possible, then party tent rentals are definitely something you should consider. The problem is that many people who organize such events don’t really know what kind of tent is right for them.
To give you an idea, let’s take a brief look at the three main types of party tent rentals that you can choose from:
A frame tent has poles around its perimeter but doesn’t have a center pole. These are perfect for areas where space is limited or a center pole would disrupt what’s going on inside the tent. This type of tent allows for sidewalls for added comfort and can easily be equipped with lighting fixtures, fans, and lightweight decorations.
A pole tent will have poles around the perimeter and in the center. This type of tent must be either staked into the ground or anchored to concrete. In addition to sidewalls, you can easily mount lights and fans to any of the poles. Also, these tents have elegant curves, which makes them attractive for fancy gatherings such as weddings and corporate parties.
A structure tent also doesn’t have center poles, but it does have a high-peaked ceiling. This tent can be staked into the ground, anchored into concrete, or held down by concrete blocks. As you might understand from its name, a structure tent is able to support more weight than frame tents and pole tents. Structured tents also have the highest wind and storm rating, which makes them more secure in bad weather.
Benefits of Party Tent Rentals
Renting a tent for an event in Florida is always the best plan. Here are some of the benefits that you’ll enjoy by adding tents to your checklist:
Protect Your Guests
Florida’s summers are hot. Like, really hot… This can make your guests uncomfortable if you’re holding an event outdoors during the day. No matter what kind of tent you decide to use, it’ll be effective in protecting them from the sun and other weather elements. This will also keep them safe from sunburns, dehydration, and heat exhaustion.
Save Lots of Money
The biggest benefit that most people notice from party tent rentals is the amount of money they save. Tents are quite expensive. Plus, you need to deal with storing them for long periods of time. Unless you have weekly events, it’s simply not cost-effective for you to purchase a tent instead of renting one. By renting, you’ll free up a large portion of your budget to be used on other things.
No one likes to attend an event and deal with prying eyes. A tent will provide your guests with privacy even if other people are in close proximity. This will also prevent gatecrashers because you can easily set up a security person at the entrance. Even if you’ve never attended an event where people in the area could just stroll by and look in on the festivities, it’s very easy to imagine how annoying this can become.
Each type of tent has a variety of accessories that you can rent as well. If you want additional privacy, certain tents can be equipped with a door and/or sidewalls. You can also improve the comfort level by renting cooling or heating equipment, as needed. This includes clip-on fans, AC units, heaters, and more.
Many people don’t even consider the fact that a tent can help you keep your event more organized. One way you can do this is to section off different areas of a large tent for certain activities. The other technique is to rent more than one tent and designate each one to serve a certain function. For example, one tent could be for eating, and a second tent could have a dance floor and audio equipment.
Set-Up and Take-Down
Many people who set out to rent a tent are concerned that they have no idea how to put one up. This isn’t something you have to worry about when you go through a professional party rental company. The cost of renting a tent will include set-up at an agreed-upon time and take-down once your event has concluded. This will save you time and a whole lot of hassle.
