Marquee & bedouin tent hire

Dougs Hiring in Nelspruit, Mpumalanga, specialise in white peg and pole, aluminium frame or free standing marquee hire, as well as stretch tent or bedouin tent hire. We also provide draping where required.

Tent hire tip:

When selecting a marquee or tent for hire, factors such as the environment, type of function, number of guests and seasonal weather should always be taken into account. Sometimes, the exact tent that you might see in a magazine isn’t necessarily suitable for your purposes – however, we are usually able to deliver the same “look and feel” that you are after. Speak to one of our consultants to find out which tent is best suited to your specific needs.

Marquee Tent Hire - Peg and Pole

Traditional Pole Marquees consist of PVC, under tension by means of centre poles, side poles and guy ropes, which are attached to ground pegs that have been hammered into soft surfaces such as lawn or field. With sides that extend to the ground, these tents offer a great deal of protection from the elements. Clients can however decide how open they would like the tent to be, by leaving off the sides in certain areas.

Aluminium Frame Tent Hire

Aluminium Frame tents (also known as clear span tents) require no centre poles, thereby providing uninterrupted internal space. The highly stable ballasting system allows for the tent to be secured without the use of guy ropes or pegs and it can therefore be erected anywhere - and close to buildings or other tents. Clients can choose between PVC panels and glass panels, where glass panels allow guests to enjoy beautiful natural surrounds.

Bedouin Tent and Aladdin Stretch Tent Hire

Stretch tents are highly versatile and, with their aesthetic appeal, require minimal décor.  Available in various heights, sizes and colours, there are many different options to suit any event and environment.   They are quick and easy to set up and remove, providing shelter from the sun and rain, while maintaining a lovely, open-air feel. From beach weddings to garden tea parties, a Bedouin or stretch tent might just be the perfect solution for you.
