Should you buy or hire event furniture?

January 4, 2021

Should you buy or hire event furniture?

The power of the internet means that you can buy just about anything quickly and, often, cheaply. It provides us with a global marketplace that sells pretty much anything and everything. And, with lots of manufacturers located in the Far East, we're no longer restricted to dealing with wholesalers and importers - you can go direct!

When event planners are in the early throws of planning their event, they often have the dilemma of whether to buy or furniture hire.

Imagine a marquee company for instance, which holds weddings almost every weekend throughout the summer. Surely it makes sense for them to buy their own furniture rather than hire temporary furniture for each and every event?

In some cases, yes this is true, but you need to look at the bigger picture here. The classic wedding chair is the limewash Chiavari chair. Look in any bridal magazine or on Pinterest, for instance, and you'll find this particular chair. so, our marquee company could buy, say 300 limewash Chiavari chair hire and use these for each wedding.

Until you have a bride and groom who don't want limewash Chiavari chairs, they want gold chairs. Or, worse still, they don't want to use Chiavari wedding chairs at all....they want cross back wedding chairs in oak!

The marquee company, therefore, has the dilemma of whether to keep pushing the limewash chairs that they have of their own, risking upsetting the client and them walking away, or hiring the other chairs that they want from a chair hire company. And then, of course, this means that the investment they made in the 300 limewash chairs is a bit of a waste, as for that particular wedding, the chairs have to stay in storage, gathering dust.

This is just one of the reasons why it might make sense for you to hire chairs and furniture for weddings instead of buying it. You have happy clients and you don't have to find thousands of pounds up front to buy chairs!

The best chair hire companies such as Event Hire UK offers popular ranges of chairs such as Chiavaris, Napoleons and cross back chairs, for instance, in a range of different colours and in large quantities, so being able to service multiple events and weddings at any one time - something that is particularly important during the peak summer months. Better still, we also offer a range of different coloured seat pads that are compatible with all these chairs, so you can choose the colour for you!

And that's just chairs. The reality is that we also offer wedding led furniture hire such as banqueting tables and top tables in a large range of size and shape options, along with linen such as tablecloths and napkins in a range of colour options.
