Totally Tents

Frequently Asked Questions


Why don’t you have any prices on your website?
We think it’s unfair to our clients if we list a price and then have to increase that price because of special circumstances involved in setting up the tent and/or delivery costs for your event.

Not every event is the same. We offer a free initial consultation at the site location to discuss your needs for your event, and then we can give you an accurate price for your event.

Should I use a Frame or a Pole tent?
This depends upon many factors; available space, preference, ground surface and cost. Read more information on our Frame or Pole? page

What size of tent do I need?
A good rule of thumb is to use 10’ x 10’ area, per table. The table will usually seat 8 people (depending on the size and shape table you use choose). Additional factors include; your preferred dining style, for instance a buffet dinner will take up more space than a stand up cocktail reception. Having a dance floor, stage, band, or a DJ will also take up extra space under your tent. Please keep in mind that everything that needs to go under the tent needs space. We will happily calculate all of this for you to make sure everything will fit properly.

How far in advance do I need to book?
Usually 6 months to 1 year ahead of your event is preferable. May, June, September, and October are our busiest months of the year and quickly get reserved.
