Job Site Inspections


The purpose of a site inspection is to ensure the renter that the tent ordered will fit the renters’ needs (and space) prior to arrival at the site. To ensure the safety of the tent erection crews and the tent renter, before a tent can be erected the following conditions must be determined. Site Inspections will be performed by All Afton Tent Rental employees prior to the erection date.

1.) LOCATION – After the proper tent size and style have been determined, choose a desirable location for tent. a. The minimum area required for a pole tent is 8’ in length and width more than the actual tent size. This allows 4’ around all sides for stakes.
