Greater Manchester is a metropolitan county in north-west England. It encompasses one of the largest metropolitan areas in the United Kingdom and comprises of ten metropolitan boroughs: Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan, and the cities of Manchester and Salford. Greater Manchester was created on 1 April 1974 as a result of the Local Government Act 1972; and designated a City Region on 1 April 2011.
The built-up area of Greater Manchester is the second biggest in the UK, covering an area of 493 square miles. It borders Cheshire, Derbyshire, West Yorkshire, Lancashire and Merseyside. There is a mix of all kinds of residential areas, from high density urban areas to suburbs and rural areas. Much of the area developed economically during the industrial revolution, particularly in textiles. While textile production came to an end, the area has continued to grow as they have adjusted to new industries. The former docks at Salford Quays have been redeveloped as a commercial and residential area, while the BBC have relocated to their new Media City complex in the same area.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues throughout Greater Manchester. Some of the items we deliver include:
Manchester Chair Hire Specialists
Getting chair hire right is the difference between having comfy guests at your event or a sea of frowns. At Expo Hire we consider ourselves to be the Manchester Chair Hire Specialists and rent chairs to venues throughout the Greater Manchester area for all kinds of events and occasions, big and small.
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.
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.
Outdoor events require chairs that can withstand the great British climate, and our outdoor chairs for hire meet those expectations and then some. From folding samsonite chairs to aluminium bistro chairs and comfy rattan sofas we’re bound to have what you need.
Reliable Table Hire in Manchester
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.
Exhibition Hire in Greater Manchester
Exhibition hire is one of the cornerstones of what we do. Whether it’s a huge conference and exhibition at Manchester Central, or a small trade show at a local venue, we can help you make a great first impression with potential suppliers, customers and partners.
Selling your products at an important show? Having them displayed in the best way possible is vital and our display cabinets for hire are perfect for the job. We have sizes from a simple counter top case to huge wide and tall units, with and without lockable storage areas. All display cabinets are fitted with LED lights to help ensure your products and services are shown in the best light possible.
If it’s a meeting space you need, we’ve got the exhibition furniture hire for you. For those people looking for something comfy and relaxing we’ve got sofas and coffee tables to create the perfect informal space. For those with a tighter budget or footprint, we have poseur tables and bar stools to create a contemporary stand up space to clinch those deals.
Patio Heater Hire in Greater Manchester
One of the things that can be relied on to be unreliable is the weather. It doesn’t matter what time of year it is, it’s possible that the climate will do what it can to create challenges for your event. Keeping your guests warm doesn’t have to be one of them. We deliver patio heaters for hire throughout Manchester, Liverpool and Lancashire to all kinds of events to help solve this problem.
Patio Heater hire comes in two types; LPG and electric. Electric patio heaters are great for focused heat on specific enclosed areas; however the power required to run this type of product means that there needs to be a good power source nearby. If it is outdoor heater hire you want, then LPG is the way to go. These heaters are perfect for open areas where heat needs to be radiated outwards.
We’ve built up a fair old bit of experience in patio heater hire and learning from this we really think we have the best gas patio heaters for hire on the market. They’re all easy to start and are fuel efficient so you get value for money. We also supply 13kg LPG canisters separately so you don’t need to worry about getting hold of fuel.
If the space you have to heat is massive, then our space heaters for hire are the thing you need. These are a much louder, more industrial version of a patio heater and are capable of heating large spaces for longer periods of time.
Gazebo Hire in Greater Manchester
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.
Fridge Hire in Greater Manchester
If you need to keep food or drinks cold at your next event or occasion, chances are you are going to need a fridge for hire. We work with events of all kinds along with commercial kitchens throughout Manchester, Liverpool and Lancashire to help with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers deliver fridges for hire across the region frequently, helping to ensure that event organisers can quickly set up without worry.
There are several different fridges for hire on offer at Expo Hire North West. The upright display fridges are our most frequently hired fridge, going everywhere from retailers at exhibitions at Manchester Central to event hosts offering chilled drinks. We also have double door bottle coolers which are great for bars, fitting snugly under counters. For those looking for 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 plenty of space to not only store food but also to prepare it. With this in mind, we have counter fridges with integrated work spaces which are designed for this and can be wheeled quickly into position ready for use before a busy day. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.
