Get the best catering equipment hire for your kitchen. All of our electric equipment is PAT tested while our LPG equipment is regularly certified by a Gas Safe engineer
Choosing the right catering equipment hire can be tricky but we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you with our selection. We've worked hard to put together an extensive range of commercial catering equipment suitable for everything from pop up stalls and parties to busy commercial kitchens. Our range of catering equipment hire includes everything from ovens to fridges, with all equipment less than two years old.
How do I know which kind of oven hire I need to choose?
If you are cooking food at your next event or special occasion then oven hire is something that you may wish to consider. As one of the more powerful pieces of catering equipment hire we offer, it’s important to know what ovens for hire we offer and what is right for you.
We offer both LPG and electric ovens for hire, which are suitable for different situations. Electric ovens are great for indoor events and commercial kitchens, where they can be used to cook all kinds of food. These ovens draw huge amounts of power and as such they’re not suitable for use at outdoor events as generators and extension leads 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.
Unlike many other event hire companies, we frequently replace our ovens with new stock so that our customers can expect the highest quality from us. 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.
What kind of fridge hire is there?
From commercial kitchens to popup events and occasions, fridges are one of our most popular products. Our expert drivers deliver fridge hire across the country, helping ensure event organisers can quickly set up their chilled storage areas.
We offer many different kinds of fridges for hire at Expo Hire. Our upright display fridges are perfect for everything from retailers at exhibitions to large functions where guests need to help themselves. We also offer double door bottle coolers which fit snugly under counters and are perfect where space needs to be conserved. We have specialist fridges for hire in stock too, such as wine fridges and counter top fridges.
If it’s a busy kitchen you are running then you’re going to need plenty of space to not only store food but also to prepare it. Our counter fridges with integrated work space are great for exactly this purpose, and can be moved quickly into position to help you get going with speed. On the other hand, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed if there are large amounts of food to be chilled.
Is there commercial barbecue hire available?
Warm spring evenings and lazy summer days are the perfect time for eating outdoors. A small garden party can get away with a standard bbq set but for commercial situations a much bigger option is needed.
Our barbecues for hire have been selected with large events in mind and can feed literally hundreds of guests without an issue. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard, featuring two cooking areas which means cooking vegetarian food and meat at the same time is possible. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get grilling.
Do you need to order gas?
All of our LPG equipment is supplied without gas bottles. Please order separately if you need them
- 13kg LPG Bottles are suitable for patio heaters
- 19kg LPG Bottles are suitable for all other LPG equipment we stock
- 30mm wrench required to attach bottles to equipment - can also be hired separately
- If using your own gas bottle, please make sure the connector is compatible. We use a standard bayonet fitting on all of our LPG products.
- If unsure about connecting bottles to equipment utilise a Gas Safe Engineer
What do I need to know about catering equipment hire?
At Expo Hire UK, we stock, supply and hire LPG equipment for events and exhibitions to all major venues across the country. All of our equipment is supplied with a hose and regulator, enabling you to connect them directly to the standard bayonet fitting on your LPG gas cylinder. If you are not comfortable connecting the gas appliance, please consult a certified gas engineer as our delivery team will be unable to connect or set up any equipment for you.
When ordering from Expo Hire, you can be sure you'll receive high-quality items that are in good condition. We ensure this by performing a thorough inspection and testing prior to each delivery, along with regular testing and certification from a Gas Safe engineer (evidence of this can be provided upon request, once your order has been confirmed). So, look no further than Expo Hire UK.
At Expo Hire, we supply and deliver electrical equipment for hire to major venues across the country. Before delivery, we clean, scrutinize, and PAT Test every device, and each item will be labeled with the date passed to demonstrate their compliance with the regulations, which should keep even the most officious safety inspector happy.
Please be aware: Our electrical offerings come equipped with a standard UK three-pin plug. We also recommend that you check the capacity of your venue's wiring circuit to prevent any potential overloading.

Do I need to clean catering equipment hire before it is returned?
Worried about cleaning catering equipment hire after your occasion or event? If time is a factor or you know you’ve got too much else to de-rig, then our "send it back dirty" service is what you need.
Catering equipment can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage – especially ovens and barbecues. Rather than breaking out the scourer, for 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. Just wipe off any food debris or liquid and we’ll sort the rest.
No need to worry about security deposits
There’s no need to worry about a damage deposit when placing an event hire order with Expo Hire. Instead, we run a free minor damage waiver scheme to cover minor damage or loss, so you don’t need to worry if you break the odd glass or plate. We do charge for excessive or negligent loss or damage at 10x the hire price. Please check our terms and conditions for full details.
How delivery and collection works
Working out delivery costs is easy with Expo Hire; simply use our carriage calculator to find which of our branches is near to you. Tap your postcode in and it will confirm not only whether we cover that postcode or not, but also which of our 11 branches is closest to you and the cost for delivery from that branch, as well as the list of possible extra charges. Heavy furniture like sofas or equipment like large fridges will require a second person in the van and this will be added in the checkout.
Once you have filled your basket and confirmed your delivery dates and postcode in the checkout, we will show you an itemised cost for delivery so you know exactly what you’re paying for before you place your order.
Want to know when your delivery is coming? You can track your driver using our real time maps on the day of delivery and collection. Simply enter your postcode and order number into our order tracking page and find out when our driver will be with you. You can also use the link we send you by automated text.
Pay just 25% deposit when placing large orders in advance
Planning a big event in the future? At Expo Hire we can help you secure your event hire booking quickly without it costing the Earth. If your hire charge is over £500, you can now book your hire equipment with just a 25% deposit, paying the remainder up to 28 days prior to delivery. All you need to do is select the deposit option when checking out. Full details are available in our terms and conditions.
