Marquee Hire

Posted by on June 5, 2012 | Comments

There are a number of websites that you know exactly what they are before you even get to them. Marquee hire is quite simple and straight forward and had it been anything but that I would have been taken aback.

So, one aspect which leaves me mad is when a site is littered with ads all over it and it prevents your access from the meat of the website. This site doesn’t do that and, in fact, the ads are positioned where they ought to be. Major crutches for that.

The basic objective of the website www.marqueehire.com is to make you hire marquees directly without having the hassle of going round the town to select designs and colour schemes. The site displays a variety of products which includes marquees, lighting, heating and furniture too. In short, it is a one stop destination for making all your arrangements for any kind of events ā€“ marriages, birthday parties or even corporate events.

Now coming back to the website (which of course is the topic of this review!!!), it has got a very simple three column layout. The content is placed in the centre with links on both sides. Although most of the links are pretty interesting and useful, a lot of futile links have been also added towards the bottom of the page. The left side contains links regarding products and several other frequently visited links. The right side is filled up with the Photo Gallery links and archive links beside some other links.

Talking about the content of this website, there is no shortage of information on it. In fact, the home page itself looks so full of information that the readers will have to keep their eyes wide open to take in the content. On the home page, a lot of claims by the company are listed (Iā€™m sorry I have no test to establish its genuineness!!) underneath a flash slideshow of some really beautiful marquee designs. The flash content, in fact, helps the readers to take their mind of the boring claims.

Navigation is pretty simple through the site. The navigation bar at the top is well positioned and visitors can easily access all the pages of the website. The site also loads pretty fast and this shows that the website is well built from the scratch.

The website appears pretty drab and boring at first instant. There is not much use of colours. In fact, the entire website is built with a single colour. There is no banner or poster to distinguish the site at first look. In fact there is not a sign of uniqueness. The only good looking thing about the site is that it is completely loaded with loads and graphics. There are beautiful pictures of marquees posted all over the web site.

Another pretty boring aspect of the site is its blog. It is rather for promotion purposes and not for blog writing at all. Overall a 3.2/5 for this site.
