Why hire when you can buy for less? Lot's of people now choose to purchase a marquee rather than hire, this is because of the competitive prices we can offer. Often people hire a marquee, they have to pay for it to be set up, taken down and transported to and from the site, it can cost a lot! However when you buy a Gala Tent marquee you get a next day delivery and the marquee is yours to keep forever.

Why is it sometimes cheaper to buy than hire? When hiring a marquee people often overlook the costs involved, this can mean that they grossly underestimate the cost of hiring a structure. You should consider the cost of the company bringing the marquee to you, setting it up for you, taking it down, insurance, fuel, admin fees, it can quickly start adding up.

There will always be business for marquee hire companies and this is a growing market for garden parties and the larger events such as weddings, but if your event requires anything from 3m x 3m to 6m x 24m to our large modular 9m x 9m to 9m x 30m then buying maybe the best option. The advantage here is that you now have a marquee available on hand for any future events such as birthdays, anniversaries, new year celebrations - the possibilities are endless.
