Get the best catering equipment hire for your kitchen. All of our electric equipment is PAT tested while our LPG equipment is regularly certified by a Gas Safe engineer

Choosing the right catering equipment hire can be tricky but we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you with our selection.

How do I know which kind of oven hire I need to choose?

Setting up any kind of kitchen requires some careful choices to make sure equipment is not only right for the food to be cooked but also for the setting it is being used in.  Oven hire is one of the bigger components of any kitchen and getting that wrong can be an expensive mistake.

At Expo Hire London we offer the choice of both LPG and electric ovens for hire; each of which are designed for different usage. Electric ovens for hire are for indoor areas where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food easily. However, because electric ovens need lots of power to run they cannot be used outdoors. The wattage required by electric ovens can easily trip temporary power supplies such as generators and extension leads. The portability of LPG bottles make LPG ovens the perfect choice for usage outside; even an oven with powerful burners like our six burner oven can happily run off an LPG bottle. However, LPG ovens are not designed to be used indoors due to the potential lack of ventilation of exhaust fumes.

Offering high quality stock has always been something that we pride ourselves upon and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is particularly important with ovens which are often the main workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.

What kind of fridge hire is there?

When drinks and food need to be kept chilled it’s essential to have some sort of refrigeration on hand. We work with all kinds of commercial kitchens as well as with events and functions throughout North London to help with fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers frequently deliver fridges for hire to venues throughout the area, helping to make sure that event organisers don’t need to worry about keeping food and drinks cold.

We have a large variety of fridges for hire available at Expo Hire London. For example, the upright display fridges we offer are one of our most frequently hired products, going out on hire to places from huge exhibitions at ExCeL London to small local functions. We also have available double door bottle coolers which are perfect for use as an under-counter fridge at pop-up bars. For those of our customers who require more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.

We know from experience that commercial kitchens need space to not only store and chill food but also to prepare food. To meet this demand, we stock counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be moved quickly into position with ease. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.

Is there commercial barbecue hire available?

Getting food going at a big outdoor event or function can be really easy with the right equipment in place. While a garden party can make do with just a standard bbq, we know that for our commercial customers, commercial barbecue hire is essential.

The barbecues for hire we have on offer have been selected with large outdoor functions in mind and are easily capable of feeding hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which features things such as two separate cooking areas, allowing for meat and vegetarian menus to be cooked simultaneously without any fear of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going quickly.

Do you need to order gas?

All of our LPG equipment is supplied without gas bottles. Please order separately if you need them

  • 13kg LPG Bottles are suitable for patio heaters
  • 19kg LPG Bottles are suitable for all other LPG equipment we stock
  • 30mm wrench required to attach bottles to equipment - can also be hired separately
  • If unsure about connecting bottles to equipment utilise a Gas Safe Engineer

What do I need to know about catering equipment hire?

All of our equipment at Expo Hire London is cleaned, inspected and PAT tested prior to delivery, meaning you can be confident you'll receive products that are safe and in good condition. For compatibility reasons, all of our appliances are fitted with a 3 pin UK plug. We recommend that you check the limitations of your venue's wiring prior to use, to ensure it does not become overloaded.

We specialise in supplying the best quality LPG equipment at Expo Hire London. We ensure this through regular checks and tests from Gas Safe engineers. Evidence of this can be provided upon request once your order has been confirmed.

It should be noted, our delivery team are unable to connect or set up equipment for you.

All equipment is supplied with a hose and regulator, allowing them to be connected directly to the bayonet fitting on a standard LPG gas bottle. If you are not comfortable connecting the appliance, please seek advice from a Gas Safe engineer.

Do I need to clean catering equipment hire before it is returned?

Worried about cleaning catering equipment hire after your occasion or event? If time is a factor or you know you’ve got too much else to de-rig, then our "send it back dirty" service is what you need.

Catering equipment can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage – especially ovens and barbecues. Rather than breaking out the scourer, for 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. Just wipe off any food debris or liquid and we’ll sort the rest.

How does delivery of catering equipment hire work?

Worried about delivery costs for your event hire? It’s easy to find out exactly how much they are by using our carriage calculator. Simply tap the Expo Hire London logo to be taken to the homepage where you’ll find a button for the carriage calculator. Enter your venue postcode in and not only will our clever widget give you the cost of delivery and collection, but it will confirm which of our websites is best to order from so you don’t overpay.

You’ll also find a list of all possible surcharges on that page. If any of these are applicable, they are confirmed in the checkout once you have reconfirmed your delivery address and dates and are itemised in full so there are no nasty surprises before you pay.
