We thought you might like to see a better video of how our setup team works when you rent party tents in the Hudson Valley from American Tent and Party Rentals.

No, we don’t actually move as fast in the video and yes, it does take longer than 23 seconds to get 2 party tents set up. However, our team knows what it’s doing when it comes to setting up party tents so it’s completely painless and stress free for you.

Here are some answers to Frequently Asked Questions:

Q. How much space do you need to set up the tent?
A. We need at least 3 feet along the perimeter of the tent to safely secure the stakes in the ground and you’ll want even more grassy space beyond that so guests don’t trip on the stakes.

Q: Does my outdoor space need to be level to install a tent?
A: Yes, as level as possible. Pole and frame tents have solid, one piece poles so they are best installed on level, or close to level ground, since the poles are not adjustable. Installing on a hill will not only look awkward but it lends itself to falling over if it gets windy.

Q: I’m expecting 50 people at my party. How many chairs should I rent?
A: Generally, you can rent fewer than 50 chairs because not everyone will sit at the same time. I would recommend 40 chairs in this instance as outdoor parties are usually more casual, with people coming and going throughout the day. However, if you’re planning an outdoor wedding with a sit down meal, consider renting enough chairs to accommodate every guest during the ceremony and dinnertime.
