Our Nordic Pine tables are 200cm long and 70cm wide, and benches are 200cm long 20cm wide.
As with any marquee hire, the client is held responsible for all accidental loss and damage to the hire equipment during the hire period. With the value of our equipment on most jobs extending to many tens of thousands of dollars it is of course important that the equipment is properly insured. You are welcome to arrange your own insurance but it is not always easy or cost effective to do so. Because of this we offer a Damage Waiver in exchange for a fee (5% of the equipment hire charge). With this option all responsibility for accidental loss or damage is covered by Peninsula Tipi Cos own insurance. Please contact us for a copy of our Terms & Conditions.
We recommend that tipis be erected within 20 metres of a power source for lights, AV and catering equipment. This power source can be direct from mains power, or you can hire a generator.
All is not lost! Our tipis are weatherproof and can withstand up to 70km/hr winds. Rain is never an issue unless your site is at risk of flooding. If strong winds are forecast this will determine the direction the tipis face and how the sides are configured, which is something we are highly experienced with. This will all be discussed with you as we plan your event. In rare cases, set up times and days might be affected in extreme weather conditions.
Absolutely! With our indoor fireplace and gas heaters you really can create a cosy winter wonderland. The tipis are inspired by the Kata tipis of Lapland — the northernmost part of Finland — and are designed to endure the harshest of climates.
That really depends on your vision and whether you are having a cocktail or sit-down event. Each tipi can hold 100 people at absolute capacity. Check our tipi section for ideas on floor plans.
The space needed varies based on which tipi configuration you choose. Please check the section of our website for specific dimensions for different tipi configurations.
In general for a weekend event our preferred set up day is Thursday, and preferred pack down day is Monday. However, we can work with you and your venue to ensure everybody is happy with times and will always endeavour to meet specific venue requirements. If you have a triple tipi an additional day might be needed for set up.
We are primarily based on the Mornington Peninsula and delivery and set up is FREE, anywhere on the Peninsula. We do travel further afield but there will be a delivery charge. Get in touch for a delivery quote.
The tipi configurations allow us to set up in a variety of outdoor locations. But there are a number of important things to consider when choosing your venue and tipi site, including:
If you do have any questions about the suitability of your prospective event site then please get in touch. Additionally, if the site is nearby we are always happy to carry out a free, no obligation site visit. And we can of course, always recommend great outdoor locations we have used in the past!
