Structures for Curbside Grocery Store and Restaurant Pickup

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed so many aspects of daily life. Many Americans can’t go to sporting events, assemble in large crowds, or go to concerts anymore. But it’s not just entertainment that’s affected. Dining out and shopping have changed a lot, too. Many people are opting for take-out food options or grocery store pickup to minimize their exposure to the virus. If you’re a business or a restaurant looking to improve your pickup options, contacting Lafayette Tents for a curbside pickup shelter is a good place to start.

With over 100 years of experience, Lafayette Tents & Events is the expert for all of your business’ temporary structure needs. Our team of experienced installers can help you choose the perfect shelter. We sanitize and clean every structure so you know it will keep everyone inside healthy. Contact Lafayette Tents & Events today for more information.

The Benefits of Having a Temporary Structure for Curbside Pickup

Renting a temporary shelter for retail or grocery store pickup outside of your establishment draws customers’ attention. Our structures are a great way to designate your curbside pickup location. With our variety of structure sizes, you can have a small shelter to protect employees from the elements, or a large structure that is capable of holding two cars at a time.

Our temporary structures have been tested and proven to meet social distancing requirements. Designate members of your team to stay in the structure to prevent them from contaminating other staff members as they dispense items to customers in their vehicles. Our shelters are large enough that your staff can stay socially distanced from each other and have space to store items for upcoming orders. 

Temporary structures will also allow you to keep customers cool on hot days and dry on rainy days when you have socially distant seating available under one of our curbside pickup shelters.

How to Order Structures for Retail Pickup

At Lafayette Tents & Events, our inventory is full of temporary structures of various sizes and shapes. Depending on the type of event, number of attendees expected, square footage, and the foundation where the shelter will be set up, we can help determine the best structure to fit your needs. 

When ordering a temporary structure for curbside pickup from our 24/7 customer service center, our helpful employees will walk you through our three-step process to determine the ideal structure that best fits your needs.

  • Choose a type of temporary structure: For short-term rentals, we recommend frame tents and for long-term rentals, we suggest clear span structures.
  • Develop a site plan: Tell us the location of the structure, including the length, width, and floor plan
  • Mobilization and installation: Our experienced installers will deliver, install, remove and take down your structure. We can keep our staff on-site or nearby after installation to make sure everything runs smoothly.

If you’re worried that a structure is not a reliable or sturdy structure, think again. Our structures come in a variety of sizes and heights. We have offerings that are anywhere between 20 to 164 feet wide. These structures can withstand winds up to 60 mph and three-second gusts of up to 90 mph. Since our temporary structures are being used for everything from dining to COVID-19 testing, we sanitize and clean them thoroughly after every use as directed by the CDC.

Our structures are produced with 25 ounce vinyl-coated Serge Ferrari 702 fabric (or equivalent) and strong aluminium poles that are lightweight, but rigid. Our structures are available to be deployed coast to coast throughout the United States, Puerto Rico, Canada and more.

I want to tell you how very pleased I was with both set-up and take-down of the tents. The installers were freindly, helpful and all around great guys. It was raining and muddy during the take-down, yet these guys were great! Thank you for all of the help.
