Have you ever considered how much owning a marquee could benefit any business, be they small, medium or large? Business owners around the country buy industrial marquees as the perfect addition for their multiple business, storage and event needs. Any business which experiences seasonal selling would highly benefit from buying a marquee as a temporary or permanent option to their storage needs.

When business is booming and products are piling up around and outside the store room, employees are squeezing themselves in and out of passages and corridors lined with boxes, its time to consider buying an industrial marquee. Using a marquee as an alternative to building a storage area is a resourceful way of avoiding high costs of building, not to mention the stress and strain involved with dealing with architects, building contractors, electricians and the like, in the process. No permission is required to erect a marquee which means no building inspectors on site slowing the process down. And in slow seasons, you save money by not having to sit with a half empty storage room. Simply take your marquee down and stow away for the next influx of business.

Marquee Electrical Courses

We have designed our marquee lighting packages to be as simple as possible, simply connect the leads together plug in to the house/extension lead and you’re done. If your customer needs another power supply then an additional extension lead would usually do the job.

This simple system is perfect when you’re starting up a marquee hire business but after a while the jobs will become more intricate and so do the electrics. At this point you need to consider attending training courses.

Our friends at Essential Supplies are running electrical courses aimed at the marquee hire industry:

Event Electrics Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working in the Marquee
& Events industry. We will cover all aspects of the design, installation and testing of temporary electrical systems for events. The course is aimed at those who specify and install such systems but have no formal electrical qualification. We will guide candidates through best practises in installing electrical and lighting systems in temporary structures for events, including how to avoid some common pitfalls and some not so obvious. There will also be plenty of opportunities to get up close and personal with some of our latest products specifically designs for our industry.
This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to provide candidates with an awareness of the issues surrounding electrical systems for temporary events. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion and a set of course notes.
Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

Event Lighting Course:

Our one day workshop is specifically aimed at those working within the events industry. We shall cover methods and types of lighting and how to install your system. This is a non examined course and provides no formal qualification; it is de-signed to help candidates with lighting. Candidates will receive a certificate of attendance upon completion.
Price: £180 + VAT per candidate

PAT Testing Course:

The aim of our one day ‘practical’ workshop is to obtain an understanding of why
PAT Testing is necessary and be able to demonstrate safely and accurately all aspects of electrical testing necessary to perform PAT tests on your own or other peoples electrical equipment.

The course is specially designed for those within the events industry, looking at key
Products, unique to the Events World. The testing techniques learnt can be used in any industry. You will be shown how to PAT test a wide range of our products from extension leads to metal light fittings and from simple distribution boards to power tools. To ensure you get the most out of the course we aim to have a maximum of 6 Candidates on each course.
Price: £220 + VAT per candidate

If you have been in the hire industry for a few years and look to be taking the next step up in complexity of marquee bookings then I would recommend attending the Event Electrics Course first with the Event Lighting Course later.

All of your electrics require regular PAT testing, rather than paying an electrician to come in and test them it’s likely a wise investment to train you or a reliable member of staff up as a PAT tester.

At DIY Marquees we always try to promote best practice, we offer help and advice throughout the life of our marquees and in doing so try to ensure our marquee hirers can maintain good standards. Attending training courses like these that are specifically designed towards marquee hirers is good practice for everyone in the industry.
