Tension tents are professionally installed, heavy-duty party tents. Tents are supported by poles in the center of the tent and poles, roles, and staking around the perimeter. Tents are installed by professionals and will shelter against most weather conditions. Tents can only be set up in grass. Tents require at least 5 extra feet all the way around the tent. All of Salina's tents are white.

Salina's, in compliance with the law, will notify J.U.L.I.E. for every tent installation. J.U.L.I.E. stands for the Joint Utility Locating Information for Excavators, which is the company who notifies any and all underground utility companies to mark all underground lines. Tent location must be pre-marked by the customer before installation. The customer is not required to be home during tent installation as long as the tent location is accessible and pre-marked. Salina's will mail marking flags to customers if enough notice is given. 


Delivery & Installation Procedure:

All tents are delivered, professionally installed, and taken down for the cost of one mandatory delivery charge, which is based on event location from our store. To calculate delivery charge to your area, please click here. Pick-up and self-installation of tents is unavailable.

Salina's does not make appointments for delivery, installation, or take down of tents. Appointments are unavailable due to the variability and unpredictability of each event location and set up time. For this reason, Salina's delivers and installs tents prior to the event date and takes down tents following the event date for no additional cost.

In the occurrence that a tent must be delivered and set up on the actual day of the event, such as in the case of a surprise party or event at a public park, Salina's can accommodate this need. However, there is an additional charge for the same day set up and/or take down. Also, tents will still require that J.U.L.I.E. to be notified and the area marked prior to set up. This may interfere with your surprise, but we can not set up tent without J.U.L.I.E. markings. 

Tents will, usually, be delivered and installed one or two days prior to the event date. If a weekend event, tents will most likely be delivered and installed on Friday. Tents will, usually, be  taken down one or two days following the event. If a weekend event, tents will most likely be taken down on Monday.

Rental Delivery charge is one charge for a 2 way delivery, both dropping off and picking the items back up.
