There are now a huge number of different gazebo designs on the market ranging from £50 to £3000 so understandable customers can often find it difficult to select one gazebo over another. With that in mind Surf & Turf Instant Shelters have decided to write a small article to help customers when deciding which pop up gazebo to invest in. Gazebo Use – Firstly you need to consider what the gazebo is going to be used for as everyone’s needs are different. This is why Surf & Turf have developed 3 grades of gazebos offering customers a wide range to suit every need and budget. It is worth stating that ALL the gazebos Surf & Turf supply are strong, robust, waterproof and manufactured using high quality materials and it really does depend on how much you want to invest in the product. Although the ProTex1 is the strongest shelter we supply, some customers want something lighter, in that case you should look at the ProTex2 grade. Some customers are on a tight budget but still need a reliable gazebo, in that case the Heavy Duty Steel gazebo would be ideal. Value For Money – Value for money shouldn’t be confused with a ‘cheap price’. We often get calls from customers who have purchased gazebos from competitors in the £120 – £180 price bracket and on the first time use the canopy and sidewalls leak water. The frame then buckles a few more uses down the line! So in theory the initial value for money is actually a complete waste of money as the gazebo isn’t fit for purpose! On the other end of the scale you don’t want to pay too much, make sure you check the specifications in detail, canopy/sidewall material, joints, brackets and connecting joints materials etc. We are confident that like for like Surf & Turf offers the best value Pop up gazebos on the market! Spares Backup Service – Unfortunately accidents can happen, whether it be freak weather or incorrectly erecting the gazebo. At Surf & Turf all parts are replaceable right down to the smallest bolt. We carry all parts in stock ready for next day delivery. Company Reputation – Surf & Turf Instant Shelters Ltd have been trading for 9 years and allot of business comes from returning and recommended customers.
