Basingstoke is the largest town in the country of Hampshire. It is situated about 27 miles west of Guildford and 22 miles south of Reading. Historically, the town was a market town and it expanded rapidly during the mid 1960s as a result of an agreement between London County Council and Hampshire County Council, which allowed for the overspill of people to be moved to the town. It still has a regular market but is larger than the county's definition of a market town. Basingstoke has become an important economic centre, and houses the UK headquarters of Motorola, The Automobile Association and GAME among others.
This area is served by more than one of our website branches, depending on the exact postcode of the venue we are to deliver to.

We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Basingstoke. Some of the items we can deliver are outlined below:
Chair Hire in Basingstoke
When looking for chair hire, it’s important to take into consideration the kind of chairs for hire needed. We rent chairs of all types to all kinds of events in the Berkshire area – there really isn’t such a thing as a “basic chair”.
Conferences are a good example of this. Conference chair hire needs to not only be durable and stackable so seating configurations can be reset easily, it also needs to be comfortable enough for a delegate to sit in all day without complaint. Our conference chairs for hire meet these specifications perfectly so organisers don’t need to worry.
Banqueting chairs are similar. These have the additional requirement of needing to look pretty too, as they are often for events like weddings and banquets where aesthetics are important. Our range of banqueting chairs for hire are comfy, stackable and gorgeous – and can fit into a tight budget too.
When it comes to outdoor events, being resistant to weather is all important. Our outdoor chairs for hire are designed to be used in all kinds of outdoor settings and can withstand most of what the weather can throw at it. Whether it’s folding chairs for a big outdoor event, or aluminium bistro chairs for a garden party, we have got you covered.
Barbecue Hire in Basingstoke
Cooking food outside at a big event or function doesn’t need to be a chore with the right equipment. While a garden party can easily make do with a standard bbq, we know that for our commercial customers, commercial barbecue hire is going to be needed.
The barbecues for hire we have available in stock have been chosen with large outdoor functions in mind and can easily feed hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which among other things features two separate cooking areas, allowing for meat and vegetarian menus to be cooked at the same time without 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.
Fridge Hire in Basingstoke
Refrigeration is a necessity if cold drinks or food is being served at your next event or occasion, and sometimes what is already is in place is not sufficient. We work with commercial kitchens as well as with various events throughout Berkshire and Surrey to help with fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers deliver fridges for hire to venues throughout the Thames Valley area, helping to make sure that event organisers have all the fridge space they require.
We offer a huge selection of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Thames Valley. For example, our upright display fridges are one of our most frequently hired products we have on offer; going out on hire to places as diverse as retailers, exhibitors and event organisers. We also have in stock double door bottle coolers which are great as an under-counter fridge at bars and the like. For those customers who need more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.
We understand that commercial kitchens need space to not only store and chill food but also to prepare food. To help supply this need, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be wheeled 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.

Gazebo Hire in Basingstoke
Rain is both unpredictable and inconsistent. It’s possible to have days of glorious sunshine in Berkshire, Surrey and South Oxfordshire only for the drops to start falling when you have an event. This means it’s often key to have some under cover space at your event – particularly if you’re the one spending all day outside. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help make sure your event can be a success even if the weather doesn’t want to play ball.
We deliver gazebos to all kinds of events and occasions and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. All of our pop up gazebos for rent come complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories for them.
The pop up gazebo packages for hire we have are made to commercial specifications and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. While this means that our gazebos are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is of utmost importance, it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy. They are also incredibly easy to erect – simply telescope the frame apart until it reaches full size, extend the legs and then put the cover on top.
