How do I get started?
You can browse our website and fill out the Contact form, email or call us on 0478 288 454 any time from 9am to 5pm Monday-Friday to discuss your requirements.
How long is the hire period?
Most customers want to hire equipment for a weekend event, so the prices quoted on this website are for two or three days over the weekend. We usually deliver at the end of the week, and pick up at the start of the following week. If you hire for a mid week function, we usually drop off the day before, and pick up the day after.
How far in advance do I need to book?
The earlier the better to ensure we have exactly what you need available on the date of your party. Generally, we need at least two weeks notice but call us and we’ll do everything possible to help.
What happens if something gets broken?
The hire cost is based on everything being safely returned to us, so all breakages and losses are the responsibility of the hirer. Prices for replacements are different for all items. Please contact us for a quote.
Can I pick them up in my ute or trailer?
In order to make sure our goods are transported safely, we deliver everything for you.
Do you require a deposit?
We require at least 20% deposit to secure the order within a week of booking, and final payment 4 days prior to delivery. The deposit is not refundable.
How do I know if my site is suitable for installing a marquee?
At Happy Marquee Hire, we use pegs driven into grass surfaces or natural ground that bury approximately 50cm deep. It is the hirees responsibility to contact 'dial before you dig' to ensure the site is suitable. On surfaces where marquees cannot be pegged into the ground (such as on paving, concrete or asphalt) steel or concrete weights must be used. Unfortunately we do not supply theses weights and therefore can only service grassed events. Please contact us to request a site inspection.
What size marquee will I need?
There are many factors to consider when determining the size of the marquee required for your event. Some factors that need to be considered include:
Available space to fit the marquee
The type of event, e.g. wedding, birthday party etc.
The number of expected guests
Whether the guests be seated at tables, round or rectangular.
A rough layout
Whether you require a stage, dance floor, buffet tables or other furniture in the marquee
