"When investigating our options for a marquee provider for our daughters after-prom party, we considered an number of different companies. However, Craigievar Marquee Hire were head and shoulders above all others we made contact with. Mike was prompt in his response, professional in how he dealt with us and in particular our many queries and advised on how best we could provide what we had in mind for the party. This is certainly a company that can deliver beyond expectation and we would have no hesitation in recommending them for any event, be it corporate or personal. We will definately be using Craigivar Marquee Hire again in the future."

"Mike - I would like to say a big thank you to you and your team for the great service providing the marquee for my husbands birthday party last week. From start to finish you provided me with good advice on the size of marquee, flooring, etc and the clear roof and side panels that you recommended were amazing and created a stunning effect, it was so much nicer than the normal marquee. For anybody planning an event or party you will not be disappointed with Mike and his team, I can recommend them 100 percent and they provided me with the perfect venue. Thank you guys."

"A wedding is a very special day and choosing a marquee service was critical to its success. Right from the start Mike and his team provided us with excellent advice and support on how to make the day go well. The installation and setup of the marquee was extremely professional and Mike had all avenues covered leaving us stress free and able to concentrate on all the other tasks before the event. The end result was a wonderful marquee area which looked fantastic. They also provided the toilets, tables, chairs, stage and the bar. Everything was just perfect for our day. On the day Mike was around to make sure everything was going well and even provided a heater just in case the Aberdeenshire weather turned bad. After the big day the team returned and removed all the equipment and within a matter of hours the wedding area (a nature reserve) was returned to its former glory with no evidence of the 140+ person wedding a few days before. We cannot thank Mike and his team enough for making our day so special and perfect in every way. It was a delight working with you guys."

"I have had the pleasure of corresponding with Mike, from ‘Craigievar’ for two years, during the lead up to our daughters’ wedding and cannot thank Mike enough for his enthusiasm and professionalism throughout; I would have no hesitation in recommending ‘Craigievar’ to any prospective client. For our event, the marquee and facilities provided alongside, exceeded all expectations."

"I write on behalf of “Fiona’s Garden Party” Fundraiser Committee. This committee was set up by my friend Fiona Black, who was in a serious car accident and spend many weeks in hospital. Fiona felt that her time in ARI would have been a lot easier if she was able to access some outdoor space. As a committee we decided to organise a large outdoor fun day on Sunday 19 May 2013 at Haughton Park, Alford, to raise funds for Aberdeen Royal Infirmary’s Therapeutic Roof Garden. We had only 10 weeks to organise this event and had no money in the bank! From my first contact with Mike at Craigievar Marquees, I found him to be friendly, very helpful and accommodating to our needs. He didn’t hesitate to offer when asked if he would be able to provide us with a large marquee, tables and chairs on the day. Mike and his staff also gave up their time to dismantle (this marquee was already out on loan somewhere else on the Saturday!) and erect the marquee on the Sunday morning – all before 10am! The marquee was erected in no time at all, with no fuss or noise, they also came back after the event to dismantle it. We have raised so far an astonishing £20,370 – with £16,500 of this being raised on the day of the Garden Party. We couldn’t have done this without the support of Mike and his team I would have no hesitation in recommending Craigievar Marquee’s to anyone who has outdoor events to organise. Mike and his staff provide a very helpful, friendly, efficient and professional service."

"I am pleased to have the opportunity to recommend Craigievar Marquee Hire to you; I have been working with them for the last 2 years during Ballater Winter Festival Weekend, where they provide the floor to go under the skating rink and a marquee. The team are punctual both at delivery and collection, competent in their work and friendly; I have no hesitation in giving my recommendation."

"I have known Mike for over ten years personally. H M Sheridan ltd have used Mike's business to hire marquess and found his service superb. I also have worked on several outside catering jobs where Mike's marquess have been used and they are high quality and well maintained . The customers I have spoke to are always impressed with his level of service and efficiency. I am a member of the Ballater Charitable Chiels which raises funds for local causes. Mike is a great supporter of the chiels and has helped us out on a few occasions. He also provided the marquee for our 10 year anniversary dinner seating 120 with a bar and band and kitchen space, again his service was superb. Without Mike's support and advice the event would not have been a success."

Barry Florence, H M Sheridan ltd

"Not having hired a marquee before, we really didn’t know where to start when making plans for our wedding in June this year. Luckily for us, we found Craigievar!! Mike was an absolute joy to work with from start to finish, and his team were equally as friendly and professional. They supplied hire items, from the marquee itself to the four free-standing bay trees (and everything in-between!!), were not only fantastic quality, but very competitive in terms of cost! We were told by other marquee providers in the area that the venue we had chosen for our special day had too many access issues to erect a marquee in the grounds, but this was no problem for Craigievar! I wouldn’t hesitate in using Mike and his team again, and would recommend them whole-heartedly to anyone seeking a quality, professional, friendly, competitive and honest service!"

Alex & Jen - Cortes House - June 2013

"We made a booking with Craigievar Marquees for a party recently and having never organised an outdoor event before we were quite unsure of what was involved. The team at Craigievar ensured we had nothing to worry about as the level of service provided was exceptional - from first making the booking right through to the marquee going up we were supported each step of the way. No question went unanswered and even when the weather looked like causing us some major problems, Mike and his team were on site suggesting different options to ensure the party went ahead without a hitch. We would recommend Craigievar Marquee Hire without hesitation to anyone organising an outdoor event."

Sandra Lowson, Business Manager, Global Web Limited, Aberdeen.

"Thank you for giving such great service in erecting the marquee for our Homecoming Garden party. It always amazes us how quickly and quietly you put the marquees up and how equally quickly they are folded up and packed away again with no evidence of their having been there at the end of the event! We look forward to working with you again soon."

The Farquharson Family, Finzean Estate.

"On behalf of The National Farmers' Union Scotland, it is fair to say that we have hired the facilities from Craigievar on many occasions in various locations during the past 3 years. Each corporate event we have hosted has proved Mike's company to be the absolute ultimate zenith in professionalism and value for money. Mike's attention to detail, honourability and punctuality are simply first class! The ladies who participate in our events are bowled over by the royal standards of Craigievar's Luxury Toilets. Mike's company really will give your event that extra wow factor ! I, personally, have no hesitation in recommending Craigievar to anybody for any type and size of event."

Lorna Paterson- NFUS Regional Manager.

"Mike and his team provided a professional friendly service and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone. Our wedding was in a very remote location but this was no problem for them and their price was the best we were quoted. The marquee was erected quickly with minimum fuss and the toilets looked amazing which everyone commented on."

Estelle Draycott, Manager, HSBC Securities Services, London.

"We contracted Mike to supply a luxury loo for my daughter’s wedding at Cluny Castle, Aberdeenshire. Everything worked to plan and our guests were impressed by the quality of the unit and the extra touches like flowers, nice soap etc. It’s a bonus to deal with a small, family run business that looks after its customers."

Rick McTaggart, Platform Magazine, Aberdeen.

"I'd like to say thank you so much for all your help and hard work in making the first CapRock Open House a great success. We received great service, in addition to the excellent marquee I would certainly recommend you to my friends/family for future events."

Laura Beattie, Sales and Marketing Co-ordinator, CapRock Communications, Aberdeen.

"Mike and his team were contracted to supply a marquee for a function in our garden in the middle of one of the worst months of the whole year for rain! Fortunately the day they arrived to erect the marquee was perfect and the team worked extremely well, erecting the large marquee in just a few hours. They even brought and added a section at the last minute. They also supplied all the tables, chairs, a heater (a great idea and very fortunate under the circumstances!), right down to a coat rack for raincoats! Once the marquee had been erected, it rained literally non-stop, day and night, for five days straight, but everything was just great! There were no leaks at all and two social functions went ahead without any problems at all! The Kirkton House team were most attentive, with one person returning after a couple of days to ensure everything was alright, in spite of the awful weather! The diesel warm-air heater was most welcome and ran throughout the two days without difficulty! After the event weekend, the team returned to pack everything up and this was accomplished in just a few hours. It was a pleasure dealing with a small family firm whose attention to detail was simply first class. We would have no hesitation in calling upon Mike Findlay and his team again in the future."

The Higgins Family, Kinellar.

"Our management were delighted with your Marquee and as I was the main organizer it was a huge help to me to have such a professional operation on site. Everything was set up exactly as we had asked for and all put back in place for business as usual the next day. I have given your name to our marketing department and recommended you for any future events that we may have."

Karen McLeod, Administrative Co-ordinator, Weatherford, Aberdeen.

"We have used Craigievar Marquees for a few outdoor events now and have always been very happy with the friendly, efficient service provided by Mike & his team. From discussing our options at the outset, making the booking through to the marquee getting set up on the day, the whole process was very straightforward and hassle free. They were well organised and were always on hand to help with any queries on the run up to the event making it a pleasure to deal with them. With this in mind, we would not hesitate to use their services again and would recommend them to anyone organising an outdoor event in the future."
