entertainment marqueeHOW WE WORK

Carter Marquees is a manufacturer as well as hirer of marquees. We specialise in providing traditional pole marquees but also stock aluminium frame tents. We are able to manufacture bespoke items if needed to make a marquee fit into the space available. Any bespoke items are priced separately.After establishing the size, date and other general details of the event we can produce an initial proposal. This is normally in the format of a quotation.If our proposal is of interest we would normally expect to visit the site. The purpose of a site visit is to assess the site and design the best layout for the marquee. During the site visit emphasis is placed on understanding your requirements and exploring all of the viable options available. Following our visit a fully itemised quotation is submitted for consideration.When an order is placed we set out to provide the following level of service delivery:  
  • A Senior member of management team involved throughout event.
  • When an order is placed we send a fully itemised confirmation.
  • We agree in advance the delivery and collection schedule.
  • If there have to be any changes we agree in advance a mutually convenient schedule.
  • Our marquees are delivered by an experienced crew providing a flexible service.
To try and ensure we offer the best service to you we have the following health and safety systems in place:
  • We are members of the Performance Textiles Association – Mutamarq. We meet the standards as set by this organisation with reference to marquee safety, structural stability, flame retardancy and other associated standards.
  • All our personnel receive continuous training.
  • Our marquees are modular by design. The modular system helps to minimise the risks associated with running any event.
  • Method statements can be provided on request.
  • We allow for adequate fire exits, fire fighting equipment and good access to a site when preparing for any event.
  • The fabrics used in making our marquees have been treated for flame retardancy to the current British Standards.
