Market umbrellas are big outdoor tents in the shape of coverings used for providing shade. They are mainly used in areas of relaxation such as campsites and homes. They vary in aesthetic designs, sizes and are highly portable. Buying this type of umbrellas requires considering certain factors. Here are some tips on how to buy market umbrellas so you get the right one for your needs.

 

You Need a lot of Room

Before you buy this type of umbrella you should ensure that you have enough room for the umbrella.  They do work well outside on patios and decks but you need room for them so always measure that patio and deck before you buy. For a commercial establishment you will need room between each umbrella and set of chairs so measure the entire area before you buy your umbrellas.

Decent Product

Make sure you buy a decent product. You should plan to spend a good amount of money on the umbrella because you want one that’s going to last. You want market umbrellas that are made out of good materials and if you own an establishment, you’ll also want an umbrella that will take a logo if you plan to showcase your brand with the umbrella. Make sure the umbrella has good fabric and that the supports are put together well. You don’t want to buy an umbrella that is flimsy or has poor material. Take your time before you buy and look for this.

Check online and read reviews about the various market umbrella products you have an interest in before you buy any product to see what people have to say about he products you want to purchase. It’s always good to buy a product based upon word of mouth. Make sure the umbrella product comes with a good warranty. In general you want a market umbrella that comes with at least a one year warranty.

You can also test the lift mechanism for easy operation. You want to ensure that the umbrella moves up and down with ease and that it’s not difficult. Make sure you check the bas of the umbrella to ensure that it’s solid. You don’t wan to buy an umbrella with a poor base because the entire umbrella may blow over in a stiff breeze. Look for a good base made out of concrete or hard plastic so the umbrella is nice and solid. The base is probably the most important part of the umbrella so don’t buy a cheap umbrella that has a poor base.

Make a List
