Strong Durable Marquees for Sale

Have you ever considered how much owning a marquee could benefit any business, be they small, medium or large? Business owners around the country buy industrial marquees as the perfect addition for their multiple business, storage and event needs. Any business which experiences seasonal selling would highly benefit from buying a marquee as a temporary or permanent option to their storage needs.

When business is booming and products are piling up around and outside the store room, employees are squeezing themselves in and out of passages and corridors lined with boxes, its time to consider buying an industrial marquee. Using a marquee as an alternative to building a storage area is a resourceful way of avoiding high costs of building, not to mention the stress and strain involved with dealing with architects, building contractors, electricians and the like, in the process. No permission is required to erect a marquee which means no building inspectors on site slowing the process down. And in slow seasons, you save money by not having to sit with a half empty storage room. Simply take your marquee down and stow away for the next influx of business. And should there be an unexpected increase in production during non-peak times, simply erect the marquee in a few hours and start saving space in your warehouse for easy collection and distribution of your goods.

Wondering where you can purchase a pop-up marquee for sale?

What better way to introduce new clients to your new product release or re-branding than with the event of the season to show case all your innovative business ideas by hosting networking event?

Commercial Marquees for Sale from DIY Marquees

How 4m Commercial DIY Marquees are so strong
Our industrial marquee for sale are considerably stronger than the industry standard and indeed our own party tent and classic ranges. This is due to sharing many of the features used in 6m wide structures:

Vertical and horizontal roof braces. This gives the roof considerable added strength.
Intermediate purlins along each side – half way down each side of the roof is another purlin support – this strengthens the marquee and gives additional support to the roof
The wind resistant 2m end panels are covered in a separate article
As is the envelope style roof
Groundbars are included automatically
A gable upright at each end allows for interchangeable side panels
All roofs and sides are made from a reliable quality 500gsm rip-stop PVC
The strongest shape in construction is a triangle – the additional roof braces make a strong triangular structure giving the marquee frame considerable strength.
We believe all of these features make our 4m commercial marquees the most durable and heavy duty structure of their class in the world.

We are always happy to offer more customised advice for your event, please contact us giving a few details of the event you are planning (type of event, space available, number of guests and diagrams/photographs of the site if possible) and we will be more than happy to advise on your options.

All Purpose, All Weather Marquees from DIY Marquees

DIY Marquees make things simple for marquee business owners, with useful, practical marquee accessories and amazing marquee lighting packages simplicity is key, simply connect the leads together plug in to the house/extension lead and you’re done. If your customer needs another power supply, then an additional extension lead would usually do the job.

This simple system is perfect when you’re starting up a marquee hire business but after a while the jobs will become more intricate and so do the electrics. At this point you need to consider attending training courses from our friends at Essential Supplies who are running electrical courses aimed at the marquee hire industry:

Event Lighting Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working within the events industry. We shall cover methods and types of lighting and how to install your system. This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to help candidates with lighting. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.

Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

Marquee flooring packages are designed to be easy to lay whilst giving one of the best finishes available in a marquee using new carpet, available in red, green or honeybeige.

Included in each package is a non-breathable underlay, this is placed underneath the carpet when laying to prevent the build-up of condensation during your event (grass gives off a lot of water vapour if not covered). Grass is very tough so covering for a week or so will not generally cause any harm.

The marquee flooring is simply nailed in place -hammer, nails, cutting knife and a tool belt are included in the package. Watch our marquee flooring video to see how easy it is to lay.

This is the flooring and method of laying used by most of the marquee hire industry.

If you have been in the hire industry for a few years and look to be taking the next step up in complexity of marquee bookings then I would recommend attending the Event Electrics Course first with the Event Lighting Course later.

All of your electrics require regular PAT testing, rather than paying an electrician to come in and test them it’s likely a wise investment to train you or a reliable member of staff up as a PAT tester.

At DIY Marquees we always try to promote best practice, we offer help and advice throughout the life of our marquees and in doing so try to ensure our marquee hirers can maintain good standards.

High Quality, Durable Marquees for Sale

DIY Marquees offer the largest range of commercial marquees for sale in the UK. 24 different sizes across various ranges means there is the ideal marquee for you – whether you are looking for some temporary party tents to put up at home or a heavy duty marquee for commercial hiring.

the diy party tent range

When looking for heavy duty party tents or industrial marquee for sale it is important to look at many factors. Many suppliers will list the thickness of covers used as a sign of quality when in fact quality of build is far more important and even the weight of material is misleading as there are a wide range of qualities within the same weight category of PVC and PE covers used in party tents and marquees to buy.

the deluxe diy marquee range

Have a careful look at the features of the structures in question and this will also give an indication to the build quality – a marquee that includes additional bracing (eave braces, gable uprights etc) will not cut corners elsewhere in the build quality. A marquee or heavy duty party tent that has cut corners by having the Georgian window printed on rather than the more time-consuming rounded cut may well have cut corners elsewhere that will only come to light when the marquees or party tents for sale are in use.
