With summer just around the corner, Kiwis love nothing more than getting together with friends and family and making the most of the outdoors.

From your backyard barbies, cocktail parties and birthdays, through to weddings, corporate events, receptions and other fully catered events, and yes, even funerals. Silver Fern does it all. They started out with one marquee in the beginning and now have a wide selection of forty different marquees to provide their customers with the right gear, whatever the occasion, including everything you need to host your own My Kitchen Rules (MKR) style dinner party.

If you’re planning an outdoor even of any type Franklin’s Silver Fern Marquees has the experience, gear and team to make your event the best it can be. Their reputation for providing high quality marquees and hire equipment with excellent service and elegance that is the best in their industry.

Customer service is number one for Silver Fern Marquees who pride themselves on not only the quality of their equipment, but in the services they can provide, including hire of just marquees and trimmings, to a full service that provides a site design, construction, equipment hire, signage, visual, audio, set up and pack down, with site management of your special event to create the perfect environment with competitive pricing.

Capitalizing on Pukekohe’s rising growth, the team at Silver Fern Marquees have recently moved from their former premises on Manukau road, to a bigger, brighter space at 7, Wrightson Way that has been the result of opportunity, timing and recognizing the need to have a more accessible location for clientele and room for future growth in Pukekohe.

When you take a stroll into Silver Fern Marquees' showroom you get hit with style, sophistication and confidence that your event will be as elegant and memorable as you imagined.

“We prefer when customers want to come into our showroom and get a feel for how good our gear is and what they want. Just how clean you keep your workspace too, shows you have good product and makes people want to use your services.” says Phil.

Silver Fern Marquees are proud to be a medium sized company that not only caters to the needs of Franklin, and surrounding areas, but has continued involvement in the community, including supplying regional Fielddays events and Mystery Creek in Hamilton.

From tables and chairs, champagne and cocktail glassware to catering equipment like spit roasts and barbeques, Silver Fern Marquees can provide it all. They say that in a growing and progressive market they have seen a lot of change in customer needs, but it is their ability to deliver and meet those needs that allows them to keep up with business and still provide excellent service.

“It’s our mindset to always have good gear, so people feel good about what they get when it turns up.” says Phil.

Silver Fern Marquees stand by the quality of their products, buying new when needed and have gone a step above with the recent purchase of an industrial marquee washing machine, imported from the United Kingdom.

As Scott points out, they are only one of a few companies in Auckland that now own an industrial marquee washing machine. The machine allows tents to be washed in ten minutes, ready to use for the following day. It saves them time during their peak season, so they can wash more often, providing them with a lasting product and effective quality control.

“It’s impressive. Eight and a half metres long and recycles its own water, so its better for the environment and gives us an edge that other companies don’t have.” Says Scott.

With five permanent staff, Silver Fern Marquees doesn’t shy away from the big jobs and use local contractors during peak seasons. They take pride in working collectively and do whatever it takes to get the job done, even if it takes all night.

Silver Fern Marquees is excited for the future, growing into their new location and continuing to provide their customers and the community with quality service and equipment in a region that is one of New Zealand’s fastest growing areas.
