Colour can be an important theme to get right for events, and one of the easiest ways to achieve it is via linen hire. Many event organisers rent linen for events like wedding receptions and banquets to make sure furniture matches the rest of the event, but linen isn’t just for those events.

With linen for hire available in many colours, shapes and sizes we can help you cover your furniture for any event you might be holding. We understand that hiring linen can be difficult especially for first time hirers but we have done everything we can to help ensure a smooth process.

Our linen hire product pages have details in their respective descriptions to confirm what size tables they fit. We have also added recommendations for linen hire to our table hire pages to help ensure that customers can hire them together without worry about if they have the sizing correct.

What do I need to know about tablecloth hire?

Most linen hire is measured in inches, so it’s important to measure your tables in that format before choosing what you need. Remember to include a bit for the “drape” between the table-top and the floor – the standard banqueting table is 30 inches tall.

Table linen is either square, rectangular or circular. With most tables it should be intuitive what to choose, but for oval tables we recommend the larger rectangular pieces of linen while smaller circular tables normally have a square tablecloth.

Runners and sashes will add an accent of colour to your table and chairs if you don’t want to go overboard, while napkins make a classy accompaniment.

What do I need to know about cleaning tablecloth hire?

Before dispatch, we have all linen professionally laundered and pressed ready for delivery. This requires industry-specific machinery and because of this we cannot ask our customers to launder linen prior to return from hire.

For this reason, our send it back dirty service is included in the price of the linen. All we ask is that linen is repacked dry and free of any food debris in the bags that it was shipped in. Linen returned wet or with attached food debris is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned, and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.

How does delivery of tablecloth 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.

Want to know when your delivery is coming? You can track your driver using our real time maps on the day of delivery and collection. Simply tap the link in the automated text we send you and you can find out where they are - no need to call for updates.
