Making things simple
Plan your special event with Fairbairn Marquees
There’s a lot to take care of when you’re planning an event, and the team at Fairbairn Marquees considers it their job to make things as simple as possible for you. Our marquee hire is ideal for weddings, sporting events, parties, agricultural shows, corporate events, charity events, shows and exhibitions, festivals and country fayres. Whatever the event, we offer a full-service package across the north of England, working with you throughout the process to make sure things run smoothly. We’ve outlined the steps involved on this page.
We want you to understand that your event matters to us, right from your very first point of contact. We’ll take some time to listen to what you need, discussing your event plans and getting the information we need to provide you with an initial quote, indicating the likely costs for your marquee hire.
When you’ve had time to look at the quote we provided, it’s time for the site visit. This is a free visit where we survey the event location and go over your requirements in more detail. Using the information we gather during the visit we will send you a bespoke quotation together with a CAD drawing showing the proposed marquee layout.
When organising your event, no matter how carefully you’ve planned, there are always some changes to be made, sometimes at the last minute. Don’t worry! We will always work with you to accommodate any changes where possible. All we require is that any changes are made at least two weeks prior to your event.
Booking your marquee:
When you are ready to book your marquee with us, we will send you our booking form for completion along with our terms and conditions of hire. At this point a £250 deposit is payable to secure your date and equipment as quoted. On receipt of the completed booking form and deposit we will confirm your booking with you.
Final requirements and payment:
We will send you a full breakdown of all the equipment booked two weeks before your event. Please check this carefully to make sure that you have ordered everything you need. We will then send you our final invoice to be paid prior to the delivery of your marquee.
Erection and dismantling:
We will arrange with you and your venue the best day to set up your marquee. As a guide, for a Saturday event we will erect the marquee on Wednesday, Thursday or Friday, and dismantle it on Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. If your venue has time restrictions, we will work with you both to arrange suitable times for erection and dismantling. Please speak to the team if you require long-term hire – we will be happy to arrange this.
