Lease solutions

Sounds good? Great, but that’s not all…. We are proud to announce our exclusive leasing programme for Tradewinds parasols as well! When you choose our so-called “PaaS” model, an abbreviation for “Parasol As A Service”, you’ll be signing up for a comprehensive service package without the need to become the owner of the parasols, thus saving a significant part of your budget for more branded materials.

“PaaS” starts with door-to-door delivery and installation of the parasols on your deck, terrace or patio. During the entire lease period, we carry out all necessary maintenance: collection, cleaning and storage in heated warehouses during winter months, so any parasol is returned to your venue in excellent shape at the start of spring. Finally, when the leasing term comes to an end, all parasols are recycled and/-or reused in order to contribute to circular economy.
