It’s with great pride, we just thought we’d take mo to mention that, for several years running, Tipi Unique has been recognised by The Wedding Industry Awards as regional winner for Best Tipi/Marquee Provider (North West)… yay us! The most special thing about this award is the fact that it’s voted for by our customers. Each and everyone voter had left glowing reviews about how spectacular their experiences have been, and how they’d recommend us wholeheartedly.

Where We Cover

Based in Winsford, Cheshire we’re ideally situated to deliver events across the North West. Providing a first class, responsive, and timely service is key for us, and  during May – Sep, we work to an 80-mile/2-hour radius of our base (CW7 2RB). Oct – April, the cap is raised and we’d happily chat about delivering events further afield.

what are your prices and do you have set packages?

We hear ya… you’ve set the budget and you’re weighing up if your dream tipi event is affordable and within reach? Hell yes! Here at Tipi Unique, we’re proud of our upfront and honest approach that’s quite simply different from all the rest. You’ll find clear costs from the outset for each type/size of tipi, along with all of the optional elements to go with. We don’t believe in offering packages and reproducing off-the-shelf events, because quite simply, one size does not fit all! We encourage you to shop the items you love, check their prices, and see how it all stacks up. If easier, let one of our expert team guide you through a multitude of ways that we can create dazzling and unforgettable experiences – with the added bonus of being easy on the purse.

We promise, a simple, clear, and hassle-free process. So much so that budget worries will be soon out of the window, and the excitement for the most amazing of celebrations will be your focus.

choose any date you so fancy and we’ll firm up availability from the outset

Got a date set? Excellent! Regardless of your event type, or date in the year, you can be assured of a fixed price. We’re firm believers in a fair and consistent approach, so there’ll be no added costs here for weddings, weekends, bank hols or peak seasons etc – thank you very much!

Next up, time to check if we’re free. The good news is we’re capable of running multiple events per weekend and so with ample notice, we’ll be able to confirm if your preferred dates and chosen tipis are available. When you’re ready, give us a nudge and we’ll offer you a 4-week reservation period – this means you’re pencilled in with us allowing you time to co-ordinate all of the other elements of your special occasion.

To help with your timings and enquiries, we take bookings for up to 3 years in advance (including current year).

calculating delivery

From the outset, your quotation from us will always include details about delivery costs. It couldn’t be easier for you to get to grips with! Take the total miles to be travelled from our base (CW7 2RB) to your event postcode, and multiply this by the number of vehicles required and total trips made. This is usually 4 per vehicle i.e. set up/return to base and take down/return to base. As a guide, a smaller event requiring 1 vehicle, that’s 25 miles away the cost would be £100. Likewise for a larger event with 3 vehicles at 25 miles, it would be £300.

Our costs are transparent and set at £1 per mile meaning you can easily calculate your expected delivery price. If you’re doing the sums, we’ll happily advise upon our recommended number of vehicles for your event/equipment hire size, so that you’re able to reach an accurate cost.

we’re a friendly bunch and love nothing better than catching up with you in person

Our team are all super passionate and extremely talented! We always love to chat in person (or via email, text, social media messaging, WhatsApp – we’re not fussy!). Feel free to get in touch about kick-starting your early ideas for your special occasion, or indeed plan a run-through call re. your upcoming special event.

We’re on the end of the blower from 9-5pm (weekdays), and later by appointment. If you’d like to arrange a meeting, our set times are c.10am, 4pm and 6pm weekdays and 9am weekends.

finding your dream venue and making it work

Fallen in love with our tipis? Of course you have! Wanting to figure out where you could host your amazing celebration? Rest assured you’re in safe hands, as our team have had the honour of working with some of the most incredible venues across the North West. We’ll chat to you about what you’d like your venue to offer and what’s most important i.e. budget, location, flexibility of venue etc. We’ll then hand-select the venues that we feel might be up your street!

flexibly manage your event

We know that planning a wedding/event may mean changes along the way (more guests, more chairs, changes to tipis etc). Our ethos is roll with it, and to encourage you to do the same. We pride ourselves on our flexible approach. Feel free to tweak your details, ask for updated quotes, and compare all of the options. It’s your event, and we’ll do all we can to ensure you’re able to decide how much, or how little, support you need.

It’s not often you hear it, but we are VAT registered and proud.

All of our costs are subject to VAT, and this is always made clear on bespoke quotations and when discussing any pricing. Whilst payments in cash can be made, the total amount will always include VAT. We can contract with VAT registered companies and produce VAT receipts where required.

Our expert team will be on hand to help you reach those final decisions at recommended key milestones. This means your quotation, and more importantly your event, will be a reflection of all of the things you absolutely want and need.

damage waiver

Our beloved tipis/furnishings are precious to us, and when hiring them for events, we are entrusting you to take care of them on our behalf. Our non-refundable damage waiver is an ‘insurance in lieu’ that covers you/your guests against any accidental loss or damage throughout your event duration. Often the amount is less than what would be required to be paid if independent insurance was sought.

If you’d prefer, we can advise specialist companies that offer temporary event insurance. If this route is undertaken, subject to satisfactory policies, we’d be happy to remove the damage waiver from our costs.

the bit when you’re ready to send us a deposit/pay your balance

Ok so you’ve developed your quote until it’s perfect, and checked out the competition (and chosen Tipi Unique – hoo-rah, great decision might we add)! Next comes the question of how do we pay. Easy! Our preferred payment method is via BACs (online bank transfer). It’s the most cost-effective and super-quick method, and there’s no fees involved. You are also more than welcome to pay by cheque or cash too if that’s your thing!

Our payment terms for events is 25% of the total equipment hire at the point of booking. Your balance is then due 30 days prior to your event date – dead easy! If instalments would make it easier, that’s no trouble at all – just let us know and we’ll ensure you receive regular balance updates throughout.
