“Excellent service from a company that was responsive and helpful from the off. They stand out compared to so many other companies in that they seem to really enjoy what they do and care about the customer. They have a wealth of knowledge and experience with events. They steered us away from inappropriate ideas and towards sensible solutions that made our party a success. Will definitely use them again.”

Leeanne Shine

“We hired Abacus Marquee’s to create a football colour theme for my little boys holly communion. I can’t stress enough how good these guys are from the 1st phone call to the dismantling and the end everything run as smooth as clock work.

They go above and beyond to make it happen even last minute “oopsss” I think I need second marquee phone call the week before the event they pulled it off. the whole team have been a pleasure to deal with and work with.

And the event itself is one that will be remembered for years to come. I actually can’t wait to get the chance to use these guys again the bar a fridge wear a top hit with our guest along with the paper lanterns that just set the right theme and the colour uplighter’s which you can change to suit your mood, no damage to our grass either which is a bonus considering it was up for 6 nights.

I honestly can’t thank use enough well done Mark & well done to the guys in pink hope to come across use all again in future service excellent.”

“Used Abacus for some pre Wedding events at home, and went for a 6m x 9m marquee with roof lining and LED uplighters. Fantastic service from start to finish! Mark and Adam were very helpful with suggestions when quoting and the setup/take-down team were excellent. Marquee looked awesome!

Would highly recommend these guys!

“I hired a marquee from Abacus for my birthday party. Mark really helped me out of a tight spot – sorted a marquee in record time, and his team who put up and took down the tent were first class. Super helpful, nothing was too much trouble, so polite, on time and really tidy.

Great value for money – would highly recommend. A1 Service”  (April 2018)

We hired a marquee for my daughter’s 16th birthday. Mark arranged everything and the marquee was put up and taken down as agreed all for a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

18th Birthday in London (March 2018)

Jason Frankl

“Planning an event is never without its stresses and when getting our house setup for our daughter’s bat mitzvah we were going to use the same ‘summer’ grade marquee we used for our first daughter. The winter storms a coupe of weeks ago had other ideas and it started to collapse so with less than 1 week to go I called Mark to see if he could help us in our emergency for a 3x6m marquee.

Amazingly he had one exactly the size we needed and two days later it was all setup. Everything was simple and straightforward. The crew to put up and take down the marquee were fast, friendly, turned up when they said they would and cleaned up after themselves.

The party was a great success and we certainly didn’t stress about whether or not the marquee would stay up for another week.

Thank you to all the team at Abacus and we would definitely recommend you to anyone looking for marquee hire.”

Stacey Brand

” We would highly recommend the company, very helpful and professional.  Everyone we dealt with was fantastic.

The biggest thanks need to go to the boys who done a fantastic job putting up the marquee whilst battling against the snow, wind and freezing temperatures ensuring we were still able to go ahead with our sons 18th party.  
Thanks again and we will definitely recommend Abacus.”

Juli Scott

“We were thrilled with our recent Abacus marquee hire. Mark, Adam & the construction team couldn’t have been more friendly, helpful & professional. The whole process, from booking to taking down, went very smoothly.

The Abacus team were committed to the success of the party and I was reassured throughout that, despite it being February, I wouldn’t regret hiring a marquee!!! 

Thanks Abacus! Keep up the great work.”
