OUR INTERVIEW WITH MAX MCMURDO AT THE GLAMPING SHOW
If you didn’t get to see us at The Glamping Show then watch this short film!
We had a great time meeting Max McMurdo at the show.
He chatted with Mike Halliwell Owner & Director of BOND, about the unique features of our tents and he certainly loved our product!
"Along with the team at Bond Fabrication, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park has developed a unique camping experience called Elephant lodge. The site opened in 2012 with 10 tents, 3 more were added in 2013 and a further 6 added in 2014. Mike, Michelle and the team at Bond have worked hand in hand with the ongoing development supporting us as the experience has evolved. They are always very professional and passionate about achieving agreed deadlines. They have been instrumental in the success of the Elephant lodge site at Port Lympne."
Gary Gould - Port Lympne Wild Animal Park
"From the moment we decided on safari tents as part of our glamping enterprise Bond seemed the obvious choice for both quality and value for money. Being that our site is in a windy location Mike was happy to upgrade the steel specification and make other alterations for extra strength. In our experience nothing is too much trouble. Both Mike and Michelle could not have been more friendly and helpful whenever we phoned with a question. Aftersales service is excellent, I would not hesitate to recommend Bond Fabrications Ltd."
David & Amanda Wallis - Mount View Luxury Glamping
"We initially chose Bond simply because they offered the highest quality product at the most affordable price. Over the years we have found that it is the level of personal service combined with an ability to customise their product that truly sets them apart."
Jonathan Barber - Wild Luxury Glamping
"Bond Fabrications have been absolutely brilliant to work with. From our first meeting they were able to guide us through all the options available to us and were incredibly helpful with that process. We also gave them the daunting task of replicating some of our older canvas and they accommodated this request magnificently. It required a large amount of flexibility and was carried out with a 'can do' attitude. We would never hesitate to recommend anyone to Bond Fabrications and wish them all the best for the future!"
Nick Shakespeare - Perfect Pitch Marquees Ltd
"Right from the beginning Bond were different from other tent suppliers in the market place. They insisted on a site visit very early on in the process, before quoting for the job and were able to advise on the platform siting and structure. They were competitive on price but what made them stand out was the customer service - changes were made to their basic design to suit my site, the team came to put them up over two visits and they coped with the rain and long hours with good humour. The feedback on the finished product has been very positive and I would highly recommend them."
Kate Tregoning - Brownscombe Luxury Glamping
"We have been customers of Bond Fabrications for over 10 years. The team at Bond have always provided us with the highest standard of customer service and our requirements are always completed quickly and to a high quality. Since Michelle and Mike took over the company, I am pleased to say that the excellent service we have always received has continued. We look forward to working with you for many years to come."
Tony Bourke - Marquee Magic
"Michelle and Mike at Bond have been amazing to work with. From the initial no obligation advice, their patience through the planning and design phase and also the bespoke adjustments to our tents, sharing of social media posts and the overall general support. The tents have been fab and have withstood the worst that the Welsh weather can throw at them! We wouldn't hesitate to recommended Bond and the team."
Ellie Waters - Canvas & Campfires
"We wouldn’t think twice about going back to Bond. Mike and Michelle were as keen to have it all perfect as we were and were so patient working with us to get the finish we were after. We looked at cheaper alternatives but quickly saw the supreme quality and bespoke value that Bond offer"
Archie & Emma Dennis - The Nest Glamping Lincolnshire
"We would just like to say how thrilled we are with our safari lodges. They're exactly what we had hoped for and you even altered the spec to suit our needs, i.e to accommodate the shower and loo rooms under the extended canvas etc. They've survived the worst storms in living memory here at Lamorna, nature crumbled a granite harbour wall at our cove but the tents stood firm, amazing! Lovely working with you and your team, and the back-up is second to none, like making a new porch when my husband caught the lawn mower in our ropes which consequently caused a rip so we now have a spare, very handy. Thanks again for helping us turn our dreams and plans into such a success."
David & Margaret Jeffery - Lamorna Glamping
"Bond have been really helpful for many years now and are quick to manufacture lovely tents and fulfil our many odd requests!!"
Pete Wintercrane - Big Top Mania
"Mike and the rest of the team at Bond are always incredibly friendly and helpful. The first time I went down with my PVC samples to talk through everything after placing, what was to us a large order, they really made me feel comfortable about the whole process and put my fears at ease by carefully talking me through the different elements of it in detail to make sure we got exactly what we wanted. We will definitely be using them again. The marquee squad were rather sceptical about having our PVC covers manufactured by someone other than the frame manufacturer, now they only want to use the ones made by Bond."
Gregor Gall - Finesse Marquees
"From the start of our enquiry Bond Fabrications kept in touch with us all the way, sending us samples of fabrics to be used for our bespoke catering tent. The design complimented our tipis and the staff kindly demonstrated our Chinese hat style catering tent before we took delivery. Bond Fabrications offer a first class service portraying a friendly and professional attitude."
Rob Booty - Boutipi
"We have used linings and covers manufactured by Bond Fabrications for about 10 years and found that they fit well and easily, and the quality is such that apart from accidents we get a long life from them. Bond will also accommodate any special features or design modifications that we may from time to time request."
Bill Seager - The Great Outdoors-Marquees Ltd
"In 2012 Bond Fabrications were in our final two of selection for supply of the Safari Tents and very quickly became the first choice. The solution they provided was ideal - competitively priced safari tents and the end results were terrific. The flexibility and customer support shown throughout was amazing from the project planning stage and ground works, right up until completion and final erection of the tents. Priceless. Following that they provided helpful support when something additional was needed or if anything went wrong, even now many years on when we need small wear and tear repairs completed. The spacious, quality and well thought out Safari Tents have proved to be a real hit within our holiday location and we would highly recommend Bond Fabrications and their products."
Mark Bishop - Pagel
"At Midleydown we are delighted with the Bond safari tents. We had spent time researching and viewing many Glamping sites. We feel confident we are investing in a quality product. We chose the option of higher rated steel frames, for the peace of mind in the most severe of weathers. Mike was very flexible on the layout of our tents, willing to make changes to what we required, making our tents unique and setting them apart from other sites. Bond’s after sales has been excellent. Nothing is too much trouble. Always quick to respond to questions or queries. Excellent communicators. Mike and Michelle are great, friendly and approachable. We would be happy to recommend Bond safari tents to anyone wishing to establish their own Glamping site."
Richard and Nicky Morgan - Midleydown Ltd
"We have been Using Bond Fabrications since 2005. They manufacture all of our new PVC and also carry out repairs as necessary and also create linings for us to our exact and sometimes intricate designs. We have always found Bond fabrications to be efficient, helpful and prompt to act upon any request. We also fit bespoke permanent structures to buildings and need detailed and sometimes difficult design and planning work - Mike and his team are more than happy to oblige and advice. It is a pleasure to work alongside a professional yet very personal company."
James and Nina Dickson - Abbas Marquees
"I’ve used Bond Fabrications ever since we moved our manufacturing to the UK, and would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for high-quality manufacturing delivered in a timely fashion."
