Terms and Conditions


Quotations are subject to the equipment being available when the booking confirmation and deposit is received. Forest Marquees known hereafter as FM will write confirming the booking, and this is when the contract commences.

Quotations assume that the site is reasonably level, firm, grassed, free from flooding with easy access for commercial vehicles and that no cables, drains, pipes or other services are concealed beneath the surface and there are no overhead obstructions to impede erection. If the site does not comply with these assumptions additional charges may have to be made. The hirer will be responsible for any liability arising from damage to any buried services or pipes.


The hire period is from the time of arrival of staff to commence erection until the equipment bas been dismantled and removed from the site. If lack of access to the site delays FM's work, FM shall be entitled to recover the cost of the delay from the hirer.

At least two days before erection, the hirer must supply FM with detailed information and/or drawing of the site and the position required for the Marquee. In the absence of this information FM will carry out the work as it thinks fit and any subsequent alteration required by the hirer may attract additional charges. The hire charges do not include making good unavoidable damage to the site incurred during erection or dismantling operations, and while every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum, some damage is inevitable.
