Hiring vs buying a marquee or gazebo/h2>

We will take you through the pro’s and con’s of hiring vs buying an instant marquee or pop up gazebo. This is mainly in relation to hiring for the purpose of an event such as an outdoor expo, trade exhibition, Fieldays, corporate function, ceremony, motorsports, fairs and construction sites.




✅ The hire company may send someone to set up the marquee/gazebo for you

✅ You may be able to get a special deal on extra equipment hire

✅ You can hire a different size according to each event you attend

✅ If something breaks due to hiring an inferior product, you don’t need to order a replacement part

Hiring vs buying a marquee or gazebo


✅ Once the event is over you get to keep the marquee/gazebo for next time

✅ You may not have to pay much more to own your own marquee/gazebo

✅ The marquee/gazebo will not have wear and tear from others hiring it

✅ You can custom print the tent canopy and sides for added brand exposure

✅ You can re-purpose the marquee/gazebo and use for a family camping trip

✅ If custom branded you can lend the marquee/gazebo out for a school or community event and get brand exposure


❌ If there is set up required you need to trust the hire company will be there on time or not have accidentally hired it out already!

❌ It may cost more to hire in the long run, especially if you need to hire more than once


❌ You have to store the marquee or gazebo

❌ You will have to eventually replace it (although this may be 10+ years down the track)


4 reasons to invest in a custom printed marquee:

  • Printed marquees provide shade and shelter from the elements as well as brand exposure
  • Your branded tent or pop up gazebo will make you stand out from the crowd at expos and events
  • You can sink endless money into marquee hire and gazebo hire when you can purchase your own which will quickly pay off in the long run
  • DURAMARQ marquees are so easy to transport and quick to erect means you can locate your branded marquee almost anywhere around Australia or New Zealand for immediate promotional or advertising exposure
