hints on hiring

structures anywhere
How do you know that a marquee is right for your event?

Don’t settle for a venue you don’t love

if you have found your dream location but don’t like the building, or perhaps it won’t be suitable for all of your guests it’s time to think about Marquees.

A Barlens marquee can be set up just about anywhere and act as a blank canvas for your interior, you can decide between a white or clear structure and fill it with all of the trimmings to suit your theme.

weather preparation
Preparing for the unpredictable weather in order to keep your guests comfortable.

Some things are just out of our control

Unfortunately this includes the weather.

Fortunately, we have all of the equipment to prepare for the unpredictable. In the instance of higher than average UV rays, we have umbrellas and fans to provide your guests a break from the sun. or maybe you’re dealing with all the winter elements at once (wind, rain, cold, snow?), don’t stress, we have a variety of heaters, and roofing/structure products available to protect your guest from the elements.

glassware & catering
You have enough to do so skip the washing up and leave it to us.

We get it, planning an event can be hard enough

Let alone having to think about the clean-up

That’s why we don’t want you to wash up any of the catering gear (including your glassware) before returning it. Simply rinse any remaining food/dinks and stack your gear in the box and we’ll take care of the rest.

fitting into a marquee
Fitting everyone in comfortably based on your number of guests.

First you need to decide what kind of event you are looking to host

Would you like a formal sit down, or stand-up cocktail?

if you’re looking for a formal sit-down event, we recommend 1.5 square meters per guest and 1 square per meter for a stand up cocktail event. If you’re also looking for room for the band, DJ, dancefloor, bar and catering kitchen you will need to allow more room. If you let us know what exactly you are looking for and how many guests you have our sales team will be able to provide a recommended marquee size.

delivery & collection
Save yourself the hassle and organise delivery and collection with us.

Preparing for any event is often busy work

Beforehand you’re running around to make sure that everything is ready and afterwards you’re often so exhausted you just need a rest. This is why we offer delivery, collection and setup all at additional costs to reduce your to-do list as much as possible. Contact our sales team today to enquire.

storage space
Here is why hiring is the perfect solution to limited storage space.

Are you currently short on storage space?

Is the garage already so crammed that you have to sideways step up the ever shrinking walkway to get from your car to the house? Perhaps you don’t even have a garage and your already creatively searching for more places to store belongings around your home.

If this is the case, than hiring is for you. We take care of all the storage, cleaning and maintenance and you can change your style of chairs, tables and other products for every event. Take the hassle out of events and hire what you need, when you need it.

last minute changes
Don’t stress, call our awesome sales team and we’ll help you sort it out.

We’ve been doing events since 1965 and know how to accommodate last minute changes such as location, additions to the guests list, weather and so much more. We understand that these things happen which is why our experienced sales team are on call 24/7 and always ready to help work through a solution with you.

who loves a saving?
The perks of hiring and not buying also include a saving.

When hiring items you have the luxury of changing the products for every event, to match the theme and keep the styling fresh every time. Along with this, the storage is our problem, you don’t have to waste time trying to cram everything onto an already overflowing shelf.

And the icing on the cake? When you hire items with Barlens, you’re saving massive percentages off what it would have cost to purchase the products yourself and the cleaning and maintenance is left to us.
