We offer site checks in southern New England. Most site checks are free if scheduled when
we have a representative in your area.
You can check your own site effectively! Below, is a list or what we check for.
Site entry- We have to get the equipment in and out of your site. To get our trucks and
trailers into your site, we need all entries to be at least 9 feet wide. Sharp corners must be
much wider. If we have to carry equipment in and out of you site, there are additional
Site Dimensions- Tents don't bend around obstructions! The clear area you have is from
obstruction to obstruction. Obstruction are any structures that are more than a few feet
high or any area that could be damaged by laying out a tent for setup. (use measuring
Under Ground Utilities- Any lines or buried equipment that could be damaged by driving
stakes. A misnomer is that dig safe will mark any lines that you have. This is far from the
truth, dig safe only notifies the utilities to mark the utilities lines that the utilities own. Any line
they don't own, they are not obligated to mark.
Soil Conditions- ledge, large rocks and soft sand can limit staking. Special equipment may
be needed to install your tent. There is more flexibility with staking frame style tents. (drive a
rod 40" into the soil to check). Pavement, concrete and paver's also require specialized
Overhead Obstacles- Tree branches, power lines, telephone and cable lines are the most
common. Tents pitch up from 7 feet at the edges to 12-27 feet at the center.
Water Runoff- Sites that have poor runoff can ruin your party! When placing your tent runoff
and possible flooding should be strongly considered.
Levelness- Steep slopes are not suitable for seating guests! Shimming tables that are
seating guests, is not a solution to steep ground contours. (How to check- take a chair and
place it the area your considering using. If it feels tipsy sitting in it, the area is not suitable for
seating guest). Sloped areas can be used for other uses such as buffet lines or bar areas.
