Vintage Military Tent - Edinburgh

Working with OTMT last year in Edinburgh was an absolute pleasure, both from a professional point of view and from a personal one.

Not only did the team agree take on our somewhat ambitious project to put up canvas and pole tents on hard standing but their reliable and friendly approach enabled us to plan it from opposite ends of the UK.

The complexity of our vision was no obstacle for James and his team, even their having to liaise with external institutions and companies in order to make it a reality. The promptness of their communications complete with fully detailed plans (some of which were altered significantly with no trouble) gave us, a student led initiative, what we needed to reassure The Edinburgh Council, The University of Edinburgh and The Universities’ Dragons Den Competition of the success and safety of what we had planned.

Whilst we were naturally nervous of the logistics of such a large undertaking, OTMT greeted us with large smiles and brimming enthusiasm, ready to take on the challenge. No sooner had they begun was the tent up and ready for us to set up inside in preparation for 900 visitors the following morning. James and the guys even got their hands dirty with us, working well into the small hours of the night in the freezing cold!

Even more impressively the OTMT team managed to maintain their amicability throughout the 3 day event, making friends with everyone, raising people’s spirits and never shy to help (something invaluable when running a charity event)!

I could not recommend working with OTMTs more and actually find myself doing so on a regular basis. Their reliable professionalism combined with their challenge driven approach only adds to what has to be described as a brilliant service, not to mention their great selection of products.
