How are the stalls assembled?
The stalls fit together by either 3" pegs on the ends of the bars slotting into 3" pockets on the uprights, or by bars joining by means of an internal sleeve. Illustrations of these joins can be found on the Market Stall Home Page.
Can the stalls be expanded if my business expands?
Yes, we supply many different extension kits. We are able to supply all the parts you need - you will not have to send us any of your stall parts for alteration.
Do I need a heavy-duty cover?
It is not essential by any means. In our starter packs we include a medium-weight cover (not the poor-quality, lightweight covers) which is perfectly sufficient. If you feel you need a heavy-duty cover, we do carry them in stock and on average they cost £10 extra.
How do I decide which type of stall suits my requirements?
For information regarding stall usage, please refer to our general description of stalls on the Stall Menu Page.
How long does it take to erect a stall?
This largely depends on the size of the stall you have and how much 'practice' you have had. For a small stall (8' x 8'), it takes on average fifteen minutes for beginners and the larger stalls around thirty minutes. These times can easily br reduced with time and practice. Instructions for all types of stall can be supplied if required.
What is the longest length of bar in the framework?
The figures for the longest bar can be found on the individual stall pages, shown in brackets. Car boot stalls have shorter bars than standard stalls as they are designed to fit in a car boot.
What are the pros and cons of car boot stalls?
The main advantage of car boot stalls is that they are made of shorter lengths of bar, meaning you do not require a van to transport them around. The disadvantage is that they take slightly longer to erect, but the difference is negligible.
Are car boot stalls as rigid as the standard stalls?
What is supplied in a starter pack?
We were the first company to offer a comprehensive range of starter packs. The pack contains everything you need to get up and running as a trader (apart from the stock!). Namely a frame, covers for the top, back and sides of the stall, clips to hold the cover in place and for stalls with tables, a set of boards.
How much does delivery cost?
Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the products purchased. Once your order has been placed, we will be able to quote for delivery.
How long do stalls take to deliver?
Our normal turnaround for stalls is 3-4 working days, but sometimes a little longer if our workload is exceptionally heavy.
Does someone need to sign for the delivery?
Usually yes; however, sometimes we can arrange for goods to be left with a neighbour or in a garage or shed if necessary.
What colour tarpaulin is included in the starter packs?
A standard weight white tarpaulin is included in the starter packs. We can substitute this for a heavy-duty striped version for a small supplement (usually around £10). The striped covers are available in either red-and-white, green-and-white or blue-and-white.
