Will you do a site visit before we book, what does it involve?

If you are holding your wedding or event on a private property or a venue that we have
not set up at before then, yes we will visit and complete a no-obligation site visit.
We will check the land size and ensure that it is flat ground since our tents peg and pole
tents can only be set up on grass or sand. Our team will also look at the access for our
trucks and make sure that there are no overhead poles or interfering trees, hard
structures etc.

How do Sperry Tents stand up to wind and rain?

This is one of the best features of the Sperry Tents. They are totally waterproof. If winds
are forecast we will lower the side walls of the tent towards the prevailing winds.
Contact our sales team for specific wind ratings for each tent.

Do you provide power for the tents?

We do not provide power however most venues will have the mains that we can plug
our lighting into or, alternatively, we can provide you with local providers for generator
hire. The size of generator required will depend on your overall power requirements
but our team can provide advice on our items which require power. You will need to
check with all vendors to create a complete list. Having a power source within 20m of
the tent is always a good guide.
