It’s not hard to rent tables from us for your next event in Southampton or the surrounding area. We’ve got a huge range of tables for hire which are suitable for all kinds of occasion, whether it’s an informal meeting space or a big banquet.
Getting the right kind of furniture hire is a simple process. There are three types of table on hire, which match different styles of seating. For bar stools and stand-up type affairs, the tallest kind of table is best. These tables are known as cocktail tables or poseur tables and normally quite small in diameter, helping to maximise space. For relaxed meeting spaces with sofas and armchairs, a coffee table makes a great addition as a space for drinks or promotional material.
In the middle of these is the most common type of table we hire out, banqueting tables or trestle tables. These are used for any occasion where people sit and eat, like a wedding reception or banquet. They come in different shapes and sizes to match different sizes of rooms – but choosing the right one isn’t hard as we list on each product page how many people can sit around each table and which linen is best used with it.
Getting chair hire right is the difference between having comfy guests at your event or a sea of frowns. We deliver chair hire to venues throughout Southampton and the surrounding area for all kinds of events and occasions.
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.
Banquets, weddings, and functions also need the right kind of chairs. Our banqueting chairs for hire are perfect for this kind of events and come in several styles to match any aesthetic. Our banqueting chairs are designed to be stackable so that they can be stored easily before and after an event, and seating configurations can be reset with ease.
If your next event is outdoors, then you will require outdoor chairs for hire that can handle anything the weather can throw at it. We have folding samsonite chairs for hire in large quantities for events which need large numbers of seating, along with aluminium chairs and rattan sofas for more intimate affairs.
Worried about keeping your guests warm at an outdoor event? Our patio heaters for hire can help ensure you keep your guests toasty for longer. We deliver outdoor gas heaters for hire all around Southampton, Hampshire and Dorset, ensuring you can have the outdoor event without breaking the bank.
We offer two kinds of outdoor heater hire, which are LPG and electric. Electric patio heaters give off a focused beam of heat which means that they are best used for specific enclosed areas. They need a normal power outlet to plug into as well. For outdoor spaces, gas patio heater hire is far better. These radiate heat outwards in all directions, making them perfect for a proper outdoor function.
As can be imagined, we’ve had many organisers rent patio heaters from us and from this we’ve built up a wealth of knowledge. All of our outdoor patio heaters for hire are easy to start, reliable and fuel efficient. We also hire out 13kg LPG canisters so that there is no need to worry about where fuel is coming from.
If the space you have to heat is huge then our space heaters for hire might be a better solution. These are more industrial and noisier than a standard patio heater, but they give off an immense amount of heat which will heat a much larger area.
When holding an outdoor event the last thing you want to be thinking about is if the weather is going to ruin it. This means having space under cover is often a necessity – especially if it’s you who is going to be spending the day subject to the elements. 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 outdoor events across Southampton, Hampshire and the New Forest and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. All of our pop up gazebos for rent are complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories for them when ordering.
Our pop up gazebo packages for hire are made for commercial customers and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. This means that the gazebos we offer are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is key, but it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy either. The gazebos we offer 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.
