5 key questions to ask your Outdoor Seating Hire company

Whether you are hosting an open-air concert, theatrical performance or a sporting contest, providing high quality seating will be key to the success of your outdoor event.

So to help you find the best possible solution, we’ve listed five important questions to ask the hire company providing outdoor seating for your event:


Can you meet our specifications?

Can you meet our specifications?

There will probably be a number of different requirements for your event seating, from colour and size to other key elements such as tiered viewing and protective covering. So it’s important to make sure that your outdoor seating provider uses a system that can meet each of the core needs of your event.


Will the seating be safe?

However big or small your event, there is nothing more important than the safety of the spectators in attendance. To make sure that the seating at your event is fully compliant, ask your supplier to provide documentation confirming that they adhere to the safety regulations set by the industry.


How quick can seating be installed?

How quick can seating be installed?

Whether your event requires a last-minute seating solution or has to be cleared away quickly, installation time can play a key factor in the planning of an event. To avoid any surprises, ask your supplier for an estimated time frame for erecting and taking down the outdoor seating systems you require.


Have you taken on similar projects before?

Have you taken on similar projects before?

A hire company that has experience of offering outdoor seating for an event similar to yours is always a good choice. Find out what projects the suppliers has undertaken in the past and see if they can offer any advice on how they would supply seating for a similar event.


How much will it cost?

Remember that there are plenty of high-quality seating systems available that can offer a cost effective solution for your outdoor event. Suppliers will be only too happy to discuss costings, so you’ll be able to form a reasonable idea of which hire companies are offering value for money.
