Linen hire can be a bit scary if you’ve never hired it before, but we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right colour and size for your needs.

What do I need to know about linen hire?

Most linen hire is measured in inches, so it’s important to measure your tables in that format before choosing what you need. Remember to include a bit for the “drape” between the table-top and the floor – the standard banqueting table is 30 inches tall.

Table linen is either square, rectangular or circular. With most tables it should be intuitive what to choose, but for oval tables we recommend the larger rectangular pieces of linen while smaller circular tables normally have a square tablecloth.

Runners and sashes will add an accent of colour to your table and chairs if you don’t want to go overboard, while napkins make a classy accompaniment.

Does linen hire need to be laundered before it is collected?

Before dispatch, we have all linen professionally laundered and pressed ready for delivery. This requires industry-specific machinery and because of this we cannot ask our customers to launder linen prior to return from hire.

For this reason, our send it back dirty service is included in the price of the linen. All we ask is that linen is repacked dry and free of any food debris in the bags that it was shipped in. Linen returned wet or with attached food debris is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned, and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.

How does delivery of linen hire work?

Working out delivery costs is easy with Expo Hire. On the home page of this website is our carriage calculator; tap your postcode into that and our website 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.

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 tap the link in the automated text we send you and you can find out where they are - no need to call for updates.
