For most events, there is no cut and dry time for installation & strike because of many different factors. However, we always strive to be flexible and accommodate the needs of our customers balanced with what is possible for our tent crews to do in a day.
For a party taking place on Saturday, we usually install the day before. Sometimes even earlier depending on the situation, weather factors and how many projects might be scheduled for that week and where they are located. Pickup is most often scheduled for Sunday or Monday but we ask for the event start and end time to determine exactly when the best time for pickup would be. For a Friday night dinner party that starts at 6pm, we might deliver everything on Thursday or Friday morning and pickup on Saturday.
For commercial projects we usually try to install everything one day or several days prior to your event and then strike it the day after. The actual timing can vary widely and will depend on what other services you have to coordinate inside such as stages, flooring, electrical, decorating, table settings, audio visual etc. All these activities take time so please plan accordingly.
Due to the size and weight of tents, most tent installations require the crew to drive right up to where it will be installed. For large scale commercial projects this usually isn’t a problem but does bear mentioning in case there are access restrictions. If materials need to be transported more than a minimal distance from the truck, and Black & White is not notified ahead of time and before our crew arrives, company policy requires drivers to call our office for authorization. We try to be flexible but in the past, our trucks and work site have been up to 250 yards away from each other with 7000 lbs of tent fabric and materials to be transported by hand.
