If the item is not listed, give us a call anyway. New equipment is continuously being added to our range. We can always obtain equipment from our other branches or find it for you from our contacts in the hire industry. Prior notice is essential for special items.


What sized marquee do I need?

Event Rentals has marquees to suit just about any event with any number of guests. The size marquee you will need for your event will vary depending on many factors. Before talking to one of our event consultants its best to have a good idea of:

  • Your style of event: sit down meals, cocktail party, trade show.
  • What you would like to put under the marquee: tables and chairs, dancefloor, band or entertainment, bar space
  • How many people will be at your event
  • How large is the space where the marquee will be installed (measurements are always handy)

How many toilets do I need for my event?

Local councils provide comprehensive guidelines regarding the number of toilet stations that are required for public events.  These guidelines can be found here.  Our event consultants can guide you on your toilet needs for smaller and private events.
