Renting a Beach Canopy in Gulf Shores

March 11, 2014

Beach CanopyWhy rent a beach canopy while vacationing in Gulf Shores, Fort Morgan, or Orange Beach, AL? Well…the answer should be as easy as “Beach Bum Services has the best service, highest-quality equipment, and they do all the set-up/take-down work for you…leaving you to relax and enjoy your vacation”; but that would be just bragging and it goes much farther than that! The real answers is that a beach canopy provides “Sunburn prevention; No work for you, just Relaxing; No loading and unloading the car with bulky beach supplies, No worries if the weather gets bad and your equipment is broken, and much, much more! We are a unique beach service offering the high-wind resistant beach canopy that provide 97% UV protection and the much needed shade during those long hours on the beach. We also service private vacation beach homes, instead of the typical condominium rentals of chairs and umbrellas, so if you’re renting a private home we are here to make sure you have all the perks of a condominium without all the crowds!

The Best Part of Our Service

The best part of our service is that we deliver our beach canopy and other rental equipment to your vacation home, set-up the beach canopy, leave it up for the entire time of your stay, then come back and take it down on the day you leave… and that part is free! There is NO WORK for you and most of the time the beach canopy and other beach rental equipment is set-up and waiting on you when you arrive, so all you need to do is pull up a chair and enjoy the beach! We will never ask you to do any work or spend your well earned vacation working on our equipment…that’s why we are here. In addition, our staff is always available to help with questions about the area, the best places to eat, fish, play, or site-see. All of our beach bum staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and native to the Alabama Gulf Coast with close ties and connections to the local area and businesses and will always lead you in the right direction, so don’t hesitate to pull all the information out of them that you can.

A: Make the order, fill out the necessary paperwork, pay for the equipment, and show up for your vacation…the rest is up to us!

Q: “Do we have to take it down the beach canopy everyday or what time do you come by to take down and put up each day?”

A: The beach canopy stays up the entire time of your stay, that includes overnight! This way you don’t have to cut your beach day short OR wait for us to get there to set up the canopy in the morning. It is always available for your enjoyment!
