Bedfordshire is bordered by Cambridgeshire to the east/northeast, Northamptonshire to the north, Buckinghamshire to the west and Hertfordshire to the east/southeast. It is the fourteenth most densely populated county of England, with over half the population of the county living in the two largest built-up areas: Luton (236,000) and the county town, Bedford (102,000).

We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Bedfordshire. Some of the items we deliver are outlined below:
Exhibition Hire in Bedfordshire
Exhibition hire is one of the cornerstones of what we do. Whether it’s a huge conference, exhibition or a small trade show at a local venue, we can help you make a great first impression with potential suppliers, customers and partners.
Take our display cabinets for hire as an example. These pieces of exhibition furniture for hire are extremely popular, as they are a great way to showcase products and services. Equipped with LED lights to properly light your offering, these cabinets come in various configurations to help fit your stand. There are even cabinets with lockable storage spaces available for those who are selling products on the day.
Seating options are also important. We understand that there can be massively varying requirements dependent on space and budget and we’ve built an exhibition furniture hire offering to match. If your space or budget has little room for manoeuvre then our poseur tables and bar stools make for a great contemporary meeting space; for those with more wiggle room then we have everything up to Chesterfield sofas in bright colours to match your stand aesthetic.
Fridge Hire in Bedfordshire
Keeping food and drinks cold in any space whether it be a pop up event or a commercial kitchen requires refrigeration of some kind. We work with events and occasions of all kinds along with commercial and pop up kitchens throughout Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire to help with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers deliver fridges across the region often, helping to ensure that event organisers can quickly set up without worry.
There are various different fridges for hire on offer at Expo Hire Chiltern. Our upright display fridges are our most frequently hired fridge, going everywhere from retailers to event hosts offering chilled drinks. We also have double door bottle coolers which are perfect for places such as bars, fitting snugly under counters. For those who need something a bit more specialist in nature we also have wine fridges, counter top fridges and chilled drink dispensers.
We know that commercial kitchens need space to not only store chilled food but also to prepare it. With this in mind, we have counter fridges with integrated workspaces which are designed for this specific need and which can be wheeled quickly into position ready for use. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.
Oven Hire in Bedfordshire
Getting a kitchen right for a big event or occasion is all about ensuring the right catering equipment hire is ordered. One of the most important decisions to make is what kind of oven to hire as the wrong choice can prove costly and potentially even sabotage the day.
At Expo Hire Chiltern we stock both LPG and electric ovens for hire; knowing the right one to choose depends on the context there are being used in. Electric ovens for hire are the correct choice for events and kitchens which are indoors, where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food. However, because these ovens draw large amounts of power they’re not suitable for use at outdoor occasions. The wattage required by these ovens is too much for exterior power supplies such as generators and extension leads and they will trip out easily while using them. LPG ovens like our six burner oven are what is needed outdoors, as they use LPG bottles to fuel the powerful burners without a problem.
The quality of our stock has always been important to us and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is especially important with ovens which are often the workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.

Chair Hire in Bedfordshire
Chair hire might seem a simple thing to sort out but the truth is there is no such thing as a “simple chair for hire”. We rent chairs to events, functions and companies across Milton Keynes, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire in all kinds of scenarios.
Conferences can be very important events for the people involved and the last thing any organiser would want to worry about is poor quality conference chairs. Our conference chairs for hire are designed to be both practical and comfortable to ensure the best possible result.
Our wedding chairs for hire are designed with elegance in mind. We have a range of styles available to meet your individual aesthetic and are stackable to make it easier to store and reset quickly.
Outdoor events can be the hardest of all to deal with. Outdoor chairs for hire need to not only be comfortable but able to handle London weather. Our samsonite folding chairs are great for large events needing hundreds of chairs while more intimate affairs can benefit from our aluminium and rattan ranges.
Linen Hire in Bedfordshire
Linen hire is probably the most important aspect of any event when it comes to aesthetics. Most people rent linen to dress tables for big events like weddings and banquets; however any occasion where banqueting tables will be used will almost certainly require the use of linen.
Getting the sizing right is probably the trickiest part of hiring linen, particularly if a customer has never done it before. We’ve used our experiences to help make this a painless process as possible.
Every linen product page has details on it with what table the linen is most suitable for. We’ve also added linen recommendations to all of our banqueting table pages so you can work out from there which linen you need to hire to get the best result.
