Before you should buy a tent, choose one that comes with a transport case. If you already have one and it doesn’t have any case, then look for storage equipment with gaps and slots for every part.

Put a label so you won’t get confused. Yes, you may be familiar with all the parts, but ask yourself, what if other people will be in charged of packing up the tent?

Here’s a simple tip:

Use a Dymo tape to label the items.

With this, you can quickly return the parts to their places.

In case you have crates or boxes for other items, it’s best to put a clear label.


Step #2. Organize related items

Take note of this:

You need to keep related items together.

See that special fixing, panels, or hooks go with the equipment they’re being used.

The more you organize things from the time they’re packed, the more comfortable you can assemble it for future use.


Step #3. Note faulty or damaged equipment

Don’t worry; you can avoid causing further damage.

Make sure that the graphics face outwards and are within their plastic sleeves.

You can surely save time!

If you’ve already placed these items in the right sequences, you no longer need to think twice the next time.

Another thing, when placing back the banner, stands into their cassettes, make sure to guide the process, and it should be done gently.

Don’t just whip back in a rush; this can surely damage not only the graphics but also the bar found at the top.

Oh, wait! When unplugging any plugs from the socket, do so by the plug (never the wire).

Before you actually pack the tent, make sure to permit the cooling of the halogen lights.


Step #5. Folding time

So, it’s time for you to straighten out the tent. Do it lengthwise.

Make sure that the exterior part of the tent is inside the fold.

First, you should do the main tent, next to the roof, then the vestibule.

After you’ve folded everything, place them in their case.
