We offer site checks in southern New England. Most site checks are free if scheduled when we have a representative in
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 labor charges.
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 tape!)
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 equipment.
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
