    “Hi Mark. Just wanted to thank you and let you know that your Marquee helped us have the perfect Christmas we were hoping for.  Your informative web site meant that we were able to decide on the right Marquee for our needs before we made contact  and once we had spoken to you and booked our Marquee everything went so smoothly.

    Your lovely chaps turned up on the day agreed  a little later than planned but I’ll forgive them as the weather was so awful) and then set everything up perfectly. Lights, floor, lining, carpet and heating. Yes you were right, we didn’t need another heater  Thanks again to all concerned.”

    “Hi Mark

    Sorry for the delay I’ve been a bit busy.

    First of all we had a great time at Christmas made even more special because we were all able to eat in one place…your marquee.  20 people ranging in age from 83 to 6 months.

    Your team arrived exactly on time on the agreed date. 

    Worked really hard erecting the Marquee informed us of everything we needed to know and went on their way leaving us with a fully functioning Marquee.  And even though we had some very strong gales nothing moved!

    I am so glad that I took your advice and had the marquee liner, it made everything look so much better.  The heaters were amazing, we actually had to turn two of them off as it was so hot!”

    “Hi Mark

    Just wanted to say a big thank you for the marquee this weekend, from the initial query, the installation all the way through to dismantling.  Your boys are a credit to you, efficient, polite – even love their pink T-Shirts!!  We couldn’t have picked a worse weekend for a garden party weather wise but the marquee ensured our guests stayed dry.  We will send you some pictures once I’ve collated them.  Your prompt replies to queries and response times has given me the confidence to use your services again and we will happily recommend you to friends and families.  Many thanks again and kind regards.”

    “Hi Mark

    Thank you firstly for such a professional experience with you and your team,

    From the first call to you, the whole booking process was streamlined and so efficient.

    Adam was a fantastic person to deal with.  He saw us at the site visit and recommended what he believed would work.  Our garden has two patios at different levels and then the garden so we had 3 marquees linked with one another.  The whole communication process was easy and extremely impressed with the whole team.  The marquee turned out better than expected – we have had marquees before from other companies and this far outshone the others.

    The lighting and dance floor were perfect- very important as it was my son Rishil’s engagement party so they wanted lighting and dancing late into the night and it worked a treat.

    The take down service was as smooth as expected with no problems at all.

    We will definitely be recommending you to friends and as we have other parties coming up over the next 2 years i am so pleased that our marquee needs have been ticked off.

    Thanks once again.

    A company is only as good as its last contract and if that’s the case, you will go far.

    100/100 easy.

    “I cannot fault the way in which you kept in contact from my initial enquiry to taking the marquee down. I must admit I was nervous about having a marquee but it worked out much better than I could ever have expected.  I couldn’t have the marquee positioned where I originally intended it to be but it turned out to be much better in the position it was placed anyway . In hindsight perhaps it would have been better if I had asked you to come to have a look first but then again I booked late.

    The marquee looked lovely and the lining really did finish it off –  I’m glad I took your advice and included this as I don’t think it would have looked anywhere near as impressive, especially for a party for older people, not including me obviously!

    The party was brilliant and everyone commented on how good the marquee looked and what a good idea it was to have one.

    I would definitely recommend you to anyone wanting to book a marquee as you do genuinely seem interested in your customers and doing the best for them.

    Thank you to you and your team for providing an excellent service.”

This is aimed primarily more at the small garden marquee hire market who are looking to give their house some more space for a party they’re planning.  Most likely to extend their home by “attaching” the marquee over […]
