Once you have decided upon the model & quantity of tents we shall send you an invoice for the full agreed purchase price, which will detail the payment schedule of 75% at the time of ordering our tents, and the remaining 25% when the tents are fabricated & ready to be sent to you (the tents are fully insured until you take delivery at the destination port).

Upon receipt of the deposit, we will send you a complete set of drawings detailing the tents so that we are agreed on the form, layout, doors & windows, materials & colours, and any custom modifications requested. Upon your signed confirmation of the drawings & your choices of colour, your tents will enter fabrication.

If a change is requested after the order has gone into production there is a cost involved because it holds the production lines up and also requires changes to be made to the CAD drawings that direct some of the machinery. These costs will vary depending on the extent of the changes.

Time scale

Upon the receipt of the payment with your order, the details will be processed into production. Usual production times are 10 to 12 weeks, and sea freight normally requires 30 to 45 days. Actual production times will depend upon the nature of your order and factory capacity: We will liaise closely with you to communicate actual timescales.
