Top Tips to Consider when Choosing your Marquee Manufacturer

We appreciate the importance of thinking strategically when choosing suppliers and manufacturers for your business. Choosing the right supplier involves much more than checking a price list. Your choice should depend on a range of factors such as; price, quality, reliability and service. How you consider these factors depend on your business priorities.

J & J Carter have created our top areas to consider when choosing a marquee manufacturer to help you make the right choice. 

 1. British Made

J & J Carter are proud to make their products in Britain and we are compliant with all UK regulations and standards. Foreign imports have become the norm for many of us Brits, and British made products are often considered a high-priced luxury. We are here to show that you can purchase British made quality event structures at affordable prices. Also, because our products are made in the UK the availability of spare and additional parts is much more easily obtained. In need of a last-minute order? We have you covered with our large stock availability! 

Furthermore, using a UK marquee manufacturer means we have stable prices as we are not subject to foreign exchange fluctuations. Over the last 5 years, the pound to euro conversion has seen a variation of 33%.  With the uncertainty of Brexit, choose J & J Carter for a safe bet!

3. Experience

J & J Carter is a family run business, founded in 1988 by John Carter. Today, his sons Rob and Charlie run the business and continue to be committed to serving clients worldwide. Rob and Charlie are 5th generation tensile tent engineers, it doesn’t get much more experienced than that!

Using special fabrics, state of the art computerised design and manufacturing methods, we can design and manufacture almost any style and size of structure in our 25,000 sq. ft. tent factory.

 4. Service

We have all had experiences working with suppliers and manufacturers that leaves a sour taste in our mouths. Maybe they didn’t deliver in time, perhaps they weren’t friendly or weren’t easy to talk to, maybe they even overquoted you! With J & J Carter you will never have these experiences. We know our service is paramount to creating lasting relationships and that’s why we are dedicated to providing not just friendly service, but fast, flexible and fair service.

Even in the height of peak season, we are always trying to accommodate our customer’s last-minute requests. And if that means we work overtime to achieve our goals, then that’s what we do. We believe in honest and consistent pricing, year-round. We don’t inflate prices in peak season, just ask our customers! This was one of the most important qualities according to them in our latest customer survey. Also, we aren’t a standard marquee manufacturer, we don’t have a catalogue that you can pick from, instead we work with you to create something that’s not just amazing, but more importantly meets your requirements, and exceeds your expectations.
