Tipi Hire Business

Thinking of setting up your own tipi hire business?


With the tipi hire rental market going from strength to strength there is definitely room for more tipi hire businesses in the UK. Tipis are ever-more in demand, with many moving away from standard marquees. Tipis bring a whole new level of functionality as well as a distinctive style and ambience lacking from other covered outdoor structures. When starting any business you need to consider demand, growth and sustainability – all three of which are extremely high in the tipi hire sector.
