FAQs

RESERVATIONS:

What should I know before contacting Tents R Us?
We are more than happy to walk you through the ordering process but be prepared to answer these questions in advance:

  • How big is the space do you want to put the tent.  We need actual measurements, not estimates.
  • Do you want to put the tent on grass or cement/asphalt?
  • How many guests do you plan on having at your event?
  • What is the zip code where you will be holding the event?

When is the best time to reserve equipment for my party or event?
You should plan on reserving the necessary equipment as early as possible before your event date. Without a reservation, we cannot guarantee that the items you want will be in stock. If you are unsure of the exact number of guests, we can always modify the reservation to suit your needs at no additional charge.

How do I make a reservation?

There are two ways to make a reservation.  You can text your full name, address for the event, event date, your email address and the equipment needed.  Text it to 773.779.8368 and you will receive a confirmation for your event within 12 hours.
