Having the right kind of catering equipment is vital if you're cooking outdoors at your event or occasion, and we're here to make it easy for you to find what you need.

What do I need to know before I order Outdoor Catering Hire

The most important thing a customer needs to know is their power requirements. Outdoor cooking equipment often needs a great deal of power, and while electric ovens and cookers do a good job inside, they're not designed to work on either generators or extension leads. We recommend using LPG powered equipment when cooking outside, as LPG offers much more power and is designed to be used outdoors.

However, we do have some outdoor catering hire products that are electrical like our hot dog steamer and popcorn cart. We reccommend checking what power output you have available before hiring as it's possible these can trip a supply that isn't set up to handle it.

What about delivery of Outdoor Catering Hire?

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.

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.

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.
