We’re back! Well, kind of. If you’ve been to this site at some point in the last four or five months you’ll have either seen a website without any way to order, or worse a maintenance page saying we’re working on the site. It’s not been great – but unfortunately it’s been necessary while we’ve sorted out some operational issues.

The good news is that we’ll once again be serving customers from our West London base very soon. Like the rest of the Expo Hire UK Ltd group, the Capital Event Hire website has had a makeover to add functionality, products and new options to improve the way we serve you.

The biggest change we’ve made is to our delivery policies. As part of our policy of being up front and transparent with our pricing, we’ve added a carriage calculator widget to our front page so that you can calculate our standard delivery charge to your venue postcode quickly and easily. Standard delivery costs as little as £30.

We’ve also introduced a Premium delivery option in the checkout. If you know you’re not going to be able to help our driver unload, or you’ve ordered heavy items this is what you need. It guarantees two drivers to come out to your delivery and collection, making it a quicker and more efficient process. If you need a delivery outside of our normal hours or to the congestion charge area, then please give us a call on 0800 910 1100 and we can discuss options with you.

We’ve also been working hard to expand our product lines. One thing that we’ve noticed is the huge amount of events that are going on every day in London and the sheer quantity of enquiries we have for event hire. With this in mind we’ve looked hard at what we can do to meet this demand, such as expanding our stock of furniture and adding more items to our ever popular gaming hire section.

If you’re hosting a particular event or conference and you don’t see what you need on the site, give us a call to see if we can source what you need from our network of suppliers. We’re happy to work with events from local meeting venues to huge shows and expos at places like Olympia and ExCeL.

Thank you for bearing with us the last few months, and we look forward to serving you all again with catering equipment hire, exhibition furniture and event hire.
