- Tents & Canopies
The tent location must be prepared: grass cut, sprinkler system off, all lawn items removed. Trees adjacent to the tent installation area must have branches trimmed so that there is no interference with the tent. Tent installation will be as close as possible to the location that the customer desires. The tent must be installed on flat ground. (a slight slope is permissible) The tent must be installed on ground where rainwater will flow away from the tent, and where water will not collect under the tent. The tent installation area must be accessible to our trucks. Tents will not be installed or taken down during rainstorms. We can install a tent only once, so the customer must make sure of the desired location. If the customer wants the tent moved to a different location after installation, please call our office. Additional charges will apply. Fires of any kind are prohibited under tent. Do not staple, nail, or pin anything to the tent. Do not let bare light bulbs touch any part of the tent. A tent is a temporary structure, not meant to provide adequate protection from the elements. In the event of severe weather, people should leave the tent and take shelter in a building. Have an evacuation plan for your guests ahead of time.
