If you are planning to have a party and considering the hire of a marquee then please read this article as we look at a case study of a marquee we provided in Cobham, Surrey at the end of January.
The client contacted us approximately 3 months in advance of her 40th birthday party to discuss her potential requirements. In order to provide an accurate quotation and plan of the layout of the marquee we arranged a free, no obligation site visit.
The brief was for a marquee hire attached to the house off the lounge and kitchen which would accommodate 100 guests on an informal basis with room for a band, DJ, bar, soft seating and poseur tables. The hire of a luxury toilet unit was also required.
At the site visit performed by the owner of Crystal Marquees, Richard, the site was measured accurately, a scaled drawing of the layout of the marquee provided and an explanation of how this would work with the anticipated number of guests.
The client was then taken through our extensive portfolio of equipment we have to offer using an ipad to show photos.
A list of the equipment the client wished to hire was then made. A quotation and plan of the layout of the marquee was then emailed to the client within 24 hours.
The professional plan can be seen below:
This plan was created using our professional software package but if you wish to have a go at designing your own marquee then please try our marquee planner.
The client decided to accept our quotation and made a payment of 25% as a deposit to secure the marquee.
The client was then given a build and dismantle date 4 weeks in advance of the party.
One of the items of equipment the client chose were our new LED poseur tables and they were delighted with these when we delivered the marquee.
The client had a fantastic 40th birthday party and this was the review written by the client of our services.
Just wanted to say a BIG ‘Thank You’ to you and all your team for providing the marquee for my 40th birthday party.
So happy that everything went smoothly, from the setting up, to the taking down again today. You and your team are extremely professional and we won’t hesitate to recommend you.
– Best wishes – Karen Singh & Jason Cahalane – Cobham, Surrey
