  1. Wedding Hire: Help Picking Your Venue

    Deciding on a wedding venue is a huge choice for a couple. Picking the right place is the sum of a lot of decisions affecting all kinds of aspects of the big day.

  2. Wedding Hire: Why you don’t need exact numbers

    The wedding season is almost upon us and already we are taking orders for beautiful ceremonies all around the region. A question we often get asked about wedding hire is one of numbers; when the right time to commit to an order is and if an order can be adjusted up or down if numbers of guests change.

However, with many functions being run on a strict budget there can be a real antipathy towards hiring any wedding hire equipment that is not going to be used and we can understand why customers might be reluctant to hold back their order.

    However, while budg

  3. Gazebo Hire Dos and Don’ts

    As the days get longer and the evenings get warmer, the amount of gazebo hire we deliver along with other outdoor hire goes up dramatically. If you’ve never hired a gazebo before you might be a little bit unsure about what you need to know – but fear not! We’ve put this guide together to help you understand everything about Gazebos.

    Gazebo Hire: Putting them up

    One of the big questions we get asked about gazebo hire is simply how hard they are to install on site. The good news is that they are easy to erect – but we recommend using two people to do the job properly.

  4. Catering Hire Questions You Shouldn’t Ask

    Although we’re primarily an online company, we do get some queries via telephone.

  6. Are you ready for your collection?

     

    The party is over, the wedding is finished, the exhibition is done. All that remains is for your hire equipment to be collected and everything else is just a pleasant memory. While your event is over, our work isn’t done and there are a few things that can help us make our collection from you a speedy and efficient exercise.

    Repack items

    There is no need to tell us how bad a hangover can feel. We’re all reasonably experienced in them here, so we know how hard it can be to tidy up the aftermath of a party. However, it’s a job that needs to be done so that we can collect our hire equipment.

    For crockery,
