Dorchester is the county town of Dorset, England. It is situated between Poole and Bridport on the A35 trunk route. A historic market town, Dorchester is on the banks of the River Frome to the south of the Dorset Downs. The area around the town was first settled in prehistoric times, and the Romans established a garrison there after defeating the local Durotriges tribes. In modern times the town has six industrial estates with a variety of light industrial units and wholesalers as well as service sector businesses. Novelist and poet Thomas Hardy used Dorchester as inspiration for the fictional town of Casterbridge; there is now a statue to Hardy in the town commemorating his association with Dorchester.

We're proud to deliver event hire. Some of the products we can deliver to you include:
Gazebo Hire in Dorchester
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.
Table Hire in Dorchester
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.
Patio Heater Hire in Dorchester
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.

Fridge Hire in Dorchester
Keeping drinks and food chilled does not need to be a difficult or expensive proposition. We work with a variety of commercial kitchens as well as with events and functions throughout Southampton and Hampshire to help them with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers frequently deliver fridges for hire to venues in the south coast region, helping to make sure that drinks and food are kept cold at events throughout the year.
We offer a wide selection of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Solent. For example, our upright glass-fronted display fridges are one of the most frequently hired products we have, going out on hire to a variety of places from retailers to small functions. We also have in stock double door bottle coolers which are often used as an under-counter fridge by pop-up bars. For those who require more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.
We understand from experience that commercial kitchens need space to chill and prepare food. To meet this demand, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be moved 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.
