Hire for Schools and Universities

  • Events
  • Temporary Structures

For many decades Moreton Hire has supported schools and universities nationally for their event hire needs. After all the origin of our business began when the Morahan family purchased chairs and hired them out to the local school fete. Storing them in their garage, soon the community was putting in their hire requests and Moreton Bay Hire was born. Nearly 55 years later, we dropped the “Bay”, and still remain a third generation family owned Australian business and still service the education industry weekly for a wide range of events and school activations.

Open days, graduations, career fairs, art fairs, parent evenings, seniors nights and exam set-ups often fill the calendar year of events, however we also have been extremely solution focused in our approach to these very valued clients and have been able to custom design our hire range for their specific needs. Long and short-term hire marquees, temporary structures and ‘portable buildings’ are amongst some of our more interesting requests with the education industry. Read on for more inspiration and information of what we can provide.

Shade For Summer

As the Australian spring starts heating up into summer, Moreton Hire’s marquees, tents and major temporary structures might be the perfect long or short-term hire solution for you school or university. Here is a perfect example of one of our marquee structures being utilized as shade cover over this school pool. This structure has in fact been standing for nearly 20 years, turning the Somerset College outdoor pool into a much more usable and sun-safe space all year round.

Temporary Space Solution

Mac Robertson Girls School, Victoria was challenged with the major construction of an existing building, they couldn’t go without the critical space for their students for an extended period of time. Sitting down with the principal of Mac Robertson, Moreton Hire proposed the most appropriate solution for the school – which was to erect a fully-fitted temporary structure on a long-term hire basis until constructed was completed on their new building.

Temporary Walling

Temporary walling systems and display panels are the perfect product for displays at arts and careers fairs. Our walling and counters that are most often utilised by the exhibition industry are also commonly used at schools and universities to help create pods and display booths in a wide range of sizes to suit your your custom space. Our temp walling has been a key product in creating education exhibitions, for more inspiration see our gallery below.
