Massive!

Great deal big boy gazebo. Rubbish weather have fun in this. Quidco 4% plus free delivery

A lot of space for the price but these things are a nightmare to put up and not very robust. Very probably half this price by August too.

Its worth shopping around dont pay B&Q Price X)


As I posted in the other thread - I'd go with more money for B&Q because they will accept refunds, while the seller in Da11as' offer suggests that it's not suitable for windy, raining or night time use and that they won't accept refunds.

I'd happily pay £34 extra on the basis that it's pretty likely that something will go wrong and that way you won't have wasted £66.

From experience of having used a variety of these Gazebos, including this one.

I still have a big pile of the poles sitting around somewhere with a good number of bent and broken ones.

Paying more doesn't make it hold up better in wind and rain! Strange logic.

No, but it means you can get your money back after if it doesn't hold up (which it's very unlikely to), while with the cheaper one it's likely going to be very difficult.
(When I took mine back to B&Q it was done with no hassle, think the staff expected it pretty much.)

Should note, that generally they are still usable with a bit of bracing and the like.

We had to exchange 3 of these from B&Q, all within the same week of trying to put one up. We hadn't managed to put one up because each one was damaged straight out of the box (returned the next day). B&Q only agreed to exchange because we hadn't erected one yet, meaning we hadn't used it or abused the operating instructions as it wind, rain etc.

The lady at B&Q said if I had used it and brought it back weeks later saying its damaged, then I would not be able to have a refund or exchange unless I could prove it was damaged before erecting it (not sure how that would stand regarding my consumer rights) but you could see their point............... I'm glad the 3rd one was ok. and YES! you do have to abide by the user instructions when using these Marquees.

So I would seriously only want to pay as little as possible for one of these, certainly not £99.

Buying from ebay you will still have the option of ebay and PayPal buyer protection, £65 is a steel,

As per the other thread -

As I say - that wasn't my experience.I'd prefer to take my chances with … As I say - that wasn't my experience.I'd prefer to take my chances with "I'd like to speak to a manager", than the paypal processes, whereby I believe they can request you send it back.And I think your example kind of proves the point for me - if you try and get a refund because it's already damaged before you put it up, do you think the seller is going to say "here, have another one". I think they're going to fight it.

The key with any gazebo tent etc make sure it is waterproof or they are only usefull for shade.

The cloth covers are nice but will often leak
