About Buchannan

Buchannan was established in 1998 by Crystal and Rob Jenkins. We started out as a small business offering marquees for hire for various different events and have expanded from there. We now offer marquees, furniture, refrigerated trailers and a fully trained team to deal with even the most detailed events.

Operating from our head office near Southampton, we have expanded considerably and have an experienced, professional team who adopt a friendly, can-do attitude with all of our clients. Having developed an impressive client list featuring some of the biggest household brands on the south coast, Buchannan puts excellent customer service at the core of its business approach.

A comprehensive marquee hire service

We offer everything you need as part of our marquee hire packages. Whether you’re having an intimate garden party or a major corporate event, Buchannan can cater for your individual requirements. Our event coordinator will organise all aspects of the occasion, going through your preferences well in advance to ensure we can meet all of them.

We will then dispatch teams of marquee erectors and drivers, supervised by site managers. They’ll work on getting your marquee up and our hire manager will oversee all of the logistics. Both directors will also be on hand to ensure everything runs smoothly and that you have everything you need for your event.

Our electrical and power department will offer you technical advice and solutions for your private and corporate events, as well as recommending the best options, depending on the size and type of event you are hosting.


marquee hire company you can trust

The team at Buchannan work hard to ensure you get the best possible service at all times.

Our clients trust us to make sure their events go off without a hitch and we leave it up to you to decide how much or how little you would like us to organise.

We have a varied fleet of vehicles which are on hand to access even the most difficult of locations, so don’t panic if your venue is slightly off the beaten track. We also have full, in-house maintenance facilities, so we can ensure the quality of our equipment is consistently high.

As well as working with private clients, we also have a thriving trade department. We regularly supply marquees, refrigerated trailers and furniture to caterers, venues and other event organisers, so you’ll probably have spotted our logo around at various events.
