What information does Twelve Tables need from you for a quote?
When requesting a quote, please mention the amount of guests you are expecting, the style of you event including table requirements and whether you require space for a dance floor, bar or any other items.
What size are your tables and bench seats and how many can they sit?
Our most popular table is .74m wide and 2.4m long and will sit 4 guests either side on our bench seats, you can also enquire about our single chairs to go at the ends.
Where is your furniture made?
We have hand crafted all our furniture in the Bay of Plenty from local materials and recycled NZ timber wherever possible.
Do you do custom orders?
Yes! We love making furniture and already some of our tables and bar leaners can be found in the BOP and Waikato area.
Do you only hire tables?
Although our name is “Twelve tables” and we do hire beautifully handmade solid wooden tables, we also have a range of other furniture items for hire including bench seats suitable for ceremony and reception seating, customizable bars, bar leaners and new clear marquees.
What type of marquees do you have?
All our marquees are clear span and freestanding meaning there are no ropes or additional poles inside or outside of the marquee so you can use all of the internal space as you wish and no one will be tripping over guide ropes or pegs outside as the night unfolds.
Does your marquee quote include set up & dismantling?
Yes our marquees are erected by professionals who handle all the set up and dismantling. This is a must for liability and quality control purposes. All you have to do is show them where you want it assembled and enjoy the event!
What is the typical hire period?
Hire prices are based on a standard hire period of three days, though this can be a little flexible. We would typically setup and dismantle one day either side of the event. If you require items for a longer period please ask us about our extended rates.
What is your delivery cost?
This is calculated by the distance traveled from our depot and the vehicles and staff required. Feel free to contact us with the venue address and we will give you an accurate quote.
What size marquee do we need?
We can recommend the best size marquee to suit your event based on the number of guests you have, your seating arrangements and what you plan to fit under the roof; such as bars, buffet serving and staging. Each event is very unique, so get in contact with us for personalised advice.
Can I have clear or white roof covers and walls?
Our main focus is on clear marquees. We currently offer 100% clear, or clear walls and a choice of clear and white roofing. If you have other requirements please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes.
What size space do I need for the marquee?
Typically our team needs at least 1.5m working area around the outside of the marquee. Please consider overhanging branches. If you are hiring a 10x15m marquee, we would require a 13x18m space. If it is a tight space we may need to do a site inspection.
Does the space need to be level?
If you could play a game of cricket or kick a ball around without too much trouble it should be no problem. If your site slopes or dips in any way, please mention this to our team before accepting our quote.
What kind of vehicle access do you need?
Our marquees and hire furniture arrive on a flat deck truck or twin axle trailer. They are 2.4m wide and up to 8m long. If this sized vehicle can get within 10m of the marquee site that would be perfect, if not please let us know before accepting our quote.
Are you contactable 24/7 while my marquee is erected?
Yes. You will have at least two numbers to call if you need anything during the hire period and we are always happy to help.
Will your marquee withstand bad weather such as a storm?
OFCOURSE! If we are expecting particularly bad weather at your venue with winds exceeding 100kmph then we may be required to install guide ropes to secure the tent and provide additional security.
Can the marquee be used on concrete?
Most venues are on grass which means we can use pegs which are very discrete, if your desired location is on concrete there will be weights required, which will be an additional cost.
How do I heat/cool a marquee?
There are a number of company's we can recommend that hire heaters and air conditioning units so just ask and we can put you in contact. Usually though, due to our mild climate here in the north island we can moderate the temperature just by sliding open or closing the marquees side walls.
Do you offer event/wedding styling?
We specialise in event equipment hire but we can put you in contact with some fantastic stylists that we work with.
