 How far in advance should I reserve equipment for my event?

We recommend you reserve your items as soon as possible.  During our peak season certain dates will book out very quickly.  When you place your initial reservation we understand that your rental quantities are going to change.  We need your finalized reservation a week before the function.


Do you recommend tenting between November 1st and May 1st?

Definitely!  Heaters can be added to all tents to provide a comfortable atmosphere for your guests.  During the holiday season many clients will have tents installed on their deck or extended from their house.  This is a great way to add more space for guests to mingle.   Site inspections are required for these types of tent installations.


 Do your tents come with sidewalls?

Sidewalls are not included in the rental price of the tent although they can be added to your reservation.  Initially we recommend you reserving sidewalls for at least two sides of the tent.   A week before your function we need your final decision on the amount of sidewall you will need.  Sidewall can be pulled back  to create an entrance into the tent.  We offer three types of sidewall: clear, arched window and solid white.


When do I need a complimentary site inspection by Party Cape Cod?

We recommend scheduling a site inspection for all tents larger than a 20'x40'.  The purpose of a site inspection is to eliminate "surprises" on the day of installation.  Our representative will identify landscape obstacles (ie. trees/shrubs, uneven ground) and also work with you to develop  the best layout for your property.  Following the inspection they will create a quote based on your needs.  To schedule a site inspection contact our office to make an appointment.


Do I need a Dig Safe Inspection or building permit before my tent is installed?

Yes, in accordance with State law, Dig Safe inspections are required for all tented events.  Party Cape Cod will facilitate the inspection.  All we ask of our client is to accurately mark the area for inspection with white markers/stakes.  Party Cape Cod will call you two weeks before your function to ensure that your stakes are in place.  Our staff will then contact Dig Safe to schedule the DigSafe inspection.  Dig Safe requires 3 business days to notify all the utility companies to check your property.  Therefore, please leave the markers up for 3-5 days.

Obtaining a building permit is at the discretion of the client.  Massachusetts state code requires a permit for all tent installations.  We will provide a certificate of Flame Resistance but it is your responsibility to take it  to the local building department to obtain a permit. 

Party Cape Cod is aware that there are certain circumstances requiring special attention (such as rental property restrictions).  If you know that you will have trouble meeting the expectations stated above, it is your responsibility to call our office in advance to arrange an alternative plan.  If you do not notify Party Cape Cod and the inspection can not be completed, Party Cape Cod is not responsible for an repercussions.


Can you install a tent on a deck?

Our crews can cover most standard size decks with a tent.  Site inspections are required for all deck installations.  Additional installation fees may apply if the installation presents difficult challenges.  We will use caution to protect the deck but if staking is not possible the tent must be secured with eyebolts into the deck joints


 When will my items be delivered and picked up?

Typically your items will be delivered 1-2 days before your function and picked up 1-2 days after the function.  Although you may have the rental items for multiple days you will only be charged a one day rate.  Our company is "going green" so we will group deliveries together that are close in proximity.  Party Cape Cod will let you know that week of your function which day your delivery is scheduled for.  Clients are welcome to call the day of their delivery to narrow down approximate delivery time.


  How long will a tent heater run using a 40lb propane tank?

Tent heaters will typically run for about 3 hours per propane tank.  Certainly this is dependent upon the outside temperature and the size of the tent.
