Some companies even have a ‘get a quote’ tab on their website to make it easy and convenient for their visitors to contact them about the quote.
How big a tent should I get?
This depends on a lot of things: number of guests you expect to have, specific things you need to be inside your tent (dance floor, number of tables, lighting, sound equipment, and extra space for everyone to walk around, etc.). Of course, you need to consider the size of your space/garden where you want to setup the tent.
How does the marquee hiring work?
Getting the services of a marquee hire company makes things simple. Of course, it goes without saying that you should do business with reputable companies.
Most marquee Perth companies will provide a free and no-obligation site visit, where a representative from their company will inspect and visit your area.

Will they make a mess in my garden/site?
Reputable companies will take pride on its promise to take care of your space.
