  15. Free Standing Tent Rentals

    How are they held down?

    All of our tents must be anchored securely in the ground or, in the case of some of our smaller tents, when “in-ground” anchoring isn’t possible, using our larger cement weights for larger tents and water barrells for smaller tents. PLEASE NOTE: to maintain the safety and structural integrity of the tent, when installed using weights or water barrells, sidewalls cannot be used.

    How much space is needed around perimeter of tent for ropes?

    An additional 1-3’ of space around the perimeter of the tent is required for the ropes to be securely anchored.

    How do I know what size tent will fit in my yard?

    If you are unsure of the tent size that will fit best, we offer site visits absolutely FREE! Frank will come to the location and measure the space to confirm what tent size will work for you and offer you a on site quotation immediately.
