Top Tampa Tent Rental Tips

If you’re planning an outdoor event in Tampa or Clearwater, Florida, you’ll need a tent to provide the perfect setting for your party and shelter from either sun or rain for your guests. At Shore Tents and Events, we have everything you need, including tents, tables, chairs, tableware, lighting, dance floors and more.

We recognize that renting a tent can be confusing and even stressful if you’ve never done it before. We have 17 years of experience in the tent and party rental business. Here are our 5 top Tampa tent rental tips to help you through the process.

#1: Estimate the Size of Your Party

The first step is to estimate the size of your guest look. There’s an art to choosing a tent that’s the right size to accommodate your guests in comfort and style while allowing you to create the atmosphere you want with food and decorations.

We have tents that accommodate parties with as few as 50 guests up to hundreds of guests. Available in both elegant sailcloth and pole tent options, we can find the perfect tent to suit your needs.

#2: Choose the Right Tent Style

The next step is to choose a tent style for your event. We have elegant sailcloth tents that provide the dramatic peaks and valleys most associated with a party tent. Our sailcloth tents look wonderful when light up at night and are very popular for weddings, birthday parties, and anniversary parties.

You may opt for a pole tent instead. Pole tents are sturdy, and that makes them ideal for corporate functions and kids’ parties.

You should think about the overall feeling of the event you’re planning as well as considering how your theme and decorations will look when partnered with the tent style you choose.

#3: Get Quotes from Multiple Rental Companies

Not all Tampa tent rental companies are created equal. Some have more affordable prices than ever. If budget is a concern for you, you should get multiple quotes, so you can compare prices and get the most bang for your buck.

Keep in mind that the price for a tent may be mitigated if it’s part of a package deal. For example, we offer package deals that include tables and chairs, dance floors, and other accessories. It’s less expensive to buy a package than it is to rent items individually.

#4: Partner with an Experienced Tent Rental Company

As your big day approaches, you want to be sure that the company you choose will be able to deliver on their promises. For that reason, it’s important to choose a company with plenty of experience and a great reputation.

We have 17 years of experience in the tent and party rental industry. You can be sure that if you work with us, your items will be delivered as promised, so you can sit back and enjoy your event.

#5: Choose Tent Accessories

The final step is to choose accessories to go with your tent. After all, without someplace for your guests to sit and eat – and some fun add-ons – all you have is a tent.

In addition to the basics like tables, chairs, china, glassware, and linens, you may want to consider extras like a dance floor, lighting, a wedding arch, or even a popcorn machine. We offer all of these things and more at Shore Tents and Events.

Your Tampa event will be perfect if you follow these five tips when you rent your tent. To learn more about Shore Tents and Events products, or to schedule a free consultation, please click here.
