The purpose of a site inspection is to ensure the renter that the tent ordered will fit the renter’s needs (and space) prior to arrival at the site. To ensure the safety of the tent erection crews and the tent renter, before a tent can be erected the following conditions must be determined.
1.) LOCATION – After the proper tent size and style have been determined, choose a desirable location for tent. a. The minimum area required for a pole tent is 8’ in length and width more than the actual tent size. This allows 6’ around all sides for stakes. (Example: A 20’ x 30’ POLE tent requires a minimum of 32’ x 42’)
2.) UNDERGROUND – It is the renter’s responsibility to locate all possible underground utilities that could be located in or around specified area: A. Utilities could include, but not limited to water, gas, electric, telephone, sewage, etc. B. If any utilities lay underground of the specified area, THEY MUST BE MARKED. C. If you have any doubts or questions about underground utilities, please contact your local utility companies, or call 811. Keep in mind they typically require at least 1 week advance notice to do a locate if necessary
3.) OVERHEAD – Visually check the specified area for any and all overhead obstructions that could possibly be in the area of the erected tent top. A. This includes tree limbs, branches, basketball rims, power lines, etc. B. Tent height information can be received from Scott’s Party Rental.
4.) SURFACE – Surface is also an important issue in determining the proper type of anchor.
PLEASE NOTE: All tents are meant as temporary shelter and must be evacuated under extreme weather conditions. Tents are NOT guaranteed, 100% waterproof.
Site Inspections will be performed by Scott’s Party Rental employees prior to the erection date at the renters request.
