How to find the best catering equipment hire company

In normal times, there is a huge number of events taking place across the UK, from sports events, corporate hospitality events, weddings, conferences and a whole host of other events, the vast majority of which include some form of catering.  And we all know that the world of professional catering is a competitive one, with caterers pitching to win the business of large clients and events.  

In order for professional caterers to have confidence in their offering, they need to have faith and trust behind the scenes in the quality of the equipment they are using.  This invariably means that quality of their catering equipment hire company being as many of these events are held in venues which don't necessarily always have their own catering facilities and, if they do, they might not be equipped with what is required.  In other words, work with a reliable catering supply company, and you're half way there!  

The 'How To' suggestions below, therefore, might help you find the best catering equipment hire company.  Of course, we hope that you'll choose to use Event Hire UK, but with the amount of choice and competition out there, we want you to choose us on merit!


The run up to a busy catering event can be manic, especially for large event catering.  Surely it will make life easier for you if you can hire everything you need from the same place.  Why?  Well, this means that you only have to place one order, have a single point of contact, one delivery, one collection and one invoice rather than multiple different items of catering equipment coming from different places.  In our opinion, therefore, it's going to save you time, money and effort if you can source everything from one company.  

That's why we offer you everything from heavy-duty commercial catering equipment with many items in both electric and LPG, through to refrigeration hire in the form of bottle fridges, chest freezers, walk in cold rooms and refrigerated trailers to name just a few, all the way through to food presentation equipment and tableware.  The range of choice here at Event Hire UK is vast, with over 750+ product lines.  


As well as having the largest range of equipment hire for catering in the country, you can rest assured that we also have the quantities.  To give you an idea of numbers, we have over 250 fridges in one form or another, over 100 electric hot cupboards and 200,000 glasses for hire...and that's just a small selection.  The best catering equipment hire companies have multiples of everything so that multiple events can be serviced at any one time. 


It's no good working with a catering equipment rental company that has a big range and big quantities, but the quality is poor. In the throes of preparation for your catering event, you need to have confidence that the cooking equipment hire products are going to arrive in great condition, ready for instant use, and they are going to work as soon as you plug them in!  That's why all our electric catering equipment is regularly PAT tested and all our gas catering equipment is LPG tested.


We mentioned before that there are benefits in having a single point of contact with your catering equipment hire company.  It gives you tremendous peace of mind if you know that you can pick up the phone at any time, day or night, and speak to your account manager who will be able to assist, both proactively and reactively.  At the same time, with this in mind, it's always advisable to work with a local catering equipment hire company so that they can deliver into and collect from your event venue with no hassle, quickly and efficiently, often at short notice.

So, if you're looking for a catering equipment hire company London, a catering equipment hire company Birmingham or catering equipment hire company Manchester, all you need to do is do a Google search for 'find a catering equipment hire company near me' and the chances are that Event Hire UK will show up being as we are a national event hire company with a local presence with our regional distribution centres.  You'll also find that you can save a few quid on transport charges as well.


And finally, talking about money, we realize that of course price is an important consideration.  But so is all the above.  What price do you put on the best quality catering equipment hire products, the best service, reliability and trust?  The chances are that if you look for the cheapest catering equipment hire company in the land, something is going to have to give.  We're confident here at Event Hire UK that for the quality we offer, we charge a competitive price.

So, with all the above in mind, why don't you browse our range of equipment for catering events online today and place your secure order 24/7.  Alternatively, if you prefer, you can always give our expert sales team a call, one of whom will be delighted to discuss your requirements in more detail.  Either way, we very much look forward to working with you on your upcoming event or occasion!
