Why Buy when you Can Hire a Tent?

That may seem like a daft question from a Tent Retailer ... but here at IBEX Camping we have tried to create the best of both worlds. Now in our 5th Season we introduced our Tent & Camping Equipment service to fill a gap left by another supplier at a local event , tentatively (pardon the pun!) dipping our toes in the water in the first year... we have continued to grow this service year on year adding more tents and camping equipment as the seasons have gone by.

We are now delighted to be able to offer a range of Family, weekend & Backpacking Tents to hire from just £3.99 per day put together with a selection from our comprehensive Hire Camping equipment and you can create your perfect family Camping Holiday with little fuss & at a price we hope you'll agree is really great value.

The Team @ IBEX Camping attend many events during the Spring & Summer Months offering a ready pitched Tent Hire service alongside our Onsite Mobile Camping Shop. .... Pitching the tents ourselves means that we carefully select our Hire Tents for maximum comfort and easy of pitch meaning that you shouldn't have any problems either ... if you need a little assistance , knowing the tents we are just at the end of the phone to talk you through!

Why the best of both worlds? well buying a family Tent can be a large investment , having purchased many Family Tents for our own family camping we also appreciate that it can sometimes be a little tricky to work out which one would suit best .... so if you hire your tent first and then decide to buy a new one we'll deduct the daily hire cost of the tent from the price of the new one! A great way to Try before you buy!

Why Hire a tent rather than buy? we have many customers who hire for many different reasons , lack of storage space , not avid campers but like to camp during the summer & growing Families who perhaps want to save the investment in the large Family Tent until the Children have grown a little. Hiring gives you flexibility and variety.

Planning a family event , school trip , wedding or just a get together? we are more than happy to quote for a fully delivered , Pitched & Collected service ... leaving you to relax and enjoy.
