Blackburn is a large industrial town in Lancashire, located on the southern edge of the Ribble Valley. The town lies eight miles east of Preston, and about 21 miles northwest of Manchester. Historically a centre for cotton making, Blackburn suffered as the textile industry went into decline after World War II. Nowadays many work in the service sectors, although BAE Systems have a large aeronautics manufacturing facility at nearby Samlesbury Aerodrome.
We are proud to deliver event hire to commercial and private customers in Blackburn. Some of the products we can deliver to you include:
Oven Hire in Blackburn
Preparing food for guests at any kind of event or function normally means using an oven for at least part of the menu. Making the right decision on what oven hire to get is important as errors can prove costly and potentially even ruin the day.
At Expo Hire North West we offer both LPG and electric ovens for hire; the choice to make depends on the situation the oven is going to be used in. Electric ovens for hire are perfect for indoor events and commercial kitchens where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food to perfection. However, these ovens draw huge amounts of power and as such they’re not suitable for use at outdoor events. This is because the power required is too much for generators and extension leads and they can trip out easily while using them. LPG ovens like our six burner oven are what is needed outdoors, as they can use LPG bottles to fuel the powerful burners both inside the oven and on top.
We’ve always had a focus on offering the highest quality of products and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new stock. 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.
Table Hire in Blackburn
Table hire comes in a wide range of heights and sizes to match all kinds of occasions. We’ve built a large range with everything from traditional trestle tables all the way up to designer meeting tables for those elite meeting spaces – all delivered throughout the Manchester, Liverpool and Lancashire area seven days a week.
Getting the right size of table doesn’t need to be difficult. When browsing our furniture hire catalogue, the most important thing to consider when getting tables for hire is the height. We rent tables which are three different heights; poseur, banqueting and coffee. Poseur tables are the tall tables that one might see at a bar or contemporary meeting space and are often paired with bar stools. Coffee tables are known for being low and are for relaxed spaces with sofas and armchairs.
In the middle are banqueting tables, which are one of our most frequently hired product. These are designed for sitting and eating at and are often hired for functions such as weddings and banquets. They come in different shapes and sizes, enabling customers to choose which best fits their event space. Our product pages will advise how many can sit around each and suggest the best size of linen for each.
Gazebo Hire in Blackburn
When you’re hosting an outdoor event like a fete or a streetfood stall, having some space under cover can be really useful. A pop up gazebo for hire can make the difference between a successful event and one that is victim to rain showers that often blight the Manchester summer.
While we don’t offer marquees, we do offer large gazebos for hire which are commercial in nature and perfect for big outdoor events. All gazebos come with side walls and weights, so there is no need to worry about sourcing accessories.
Unlike a party tent for hire you might see on some sites, our gazebos are specifically designed for commercial usage with a durable covering and sturdy poles. While this means that they’re not suitable for formal events it does also mean that they’re not cheap and flimsy. They’re 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.
Barbecue Hire in Blackburn
Big outdoor events often feature a barbecue as a quick and easy way of offering food. While a garden party can get away with a small bbq set, for our commercial customers proper barbecue hire is needed.
The barbecues for hire we have in stock have been chosen with large events in mind and can feed hundreds of guests without a problem. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard, featuring two cooking areas which makes having a separate vegetarian menu a much simpler task. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get grilling.
