Optional Site Inspections may be performed by Peak of Perfection Tent Rentals employees prior to the erection date.
The purpose of a site inspection is to ensure the renter that the tent ordered will fit the renters’ 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 5’ in length and width more than the actual tent size. This allows 2.5’ around all sides for stakes. (Example: A 20’ x 30’ POLE tent requires a minimum of 25’ x 35’)
b. The minimum area required for a FRAME tent is approximately 1’ around the perimeter when staking and 6’ around the perimeter when using water barrels. (Example: A 20’ x 30’ FRAME tent requires a minimum of 24’ x 34’)
