How do you anchor tents?
What is tent staking? Will it damage my asphalt parking lot?
Tents can be installed nearly anywhere including concrete and asphalt. The most popular and economical option is drilling holes into the asphalt and repairing them after the tent is removed. This is done by drilling a hole that’s about one inch in diameter and driving a stake into the hole. Stake holes can be filled following the event by request.
Below are a picture of the 1 inch diameter hole that we create in the asphalt and a picture after the repair. Over time the patch becomes almost invisible.
When do you install and remove a tent for my party?
The installation of your tent will be based upon on routing schedule and availability of a tent crew scheduled to be in your area.

Do I need a permit for a tent?
Most residential properties do not require a tent permit. However, the State of Ohio requires anyone wishing to erect a tent greater than 400 sq. feet on public property to obtain a permit and fire safety inspection. Each tent erected requires a separate permit and inspection.
Every jurisdiction requires specific forms and fees to be completed prior to the tent installation.
The Prime Time Party Rental staff will facilitate the necessary paperwork and fees on your behalf to ensure proper permits are administered and inspections are completed to avoid any disruption with your event.
These fees will be added to your tent quote.

What other things do you need to consider when renting tents for your event?
When installing a pole tent, you need to allow an extra 5 feet around the perimeter of the tent for setup.
The stakes of the tent will extend this distance beyond the tent. This means a 20′ x 20’ tent requires a 30’ x 30’ area for installation.
In addition to allowing for area around the tent, you also need to consider things above the tent such as trees and utility lines.
What about rental item security?
Once the items are delivered, you are responsible for securing the area to prevent vandalism and theft to items. Customers will be charged for any items not returned.
