If you're serving food at your event or special occasion, these oval serving flats for hire are just what you need for an elegant look
Salvers or “flats” are a versatile piece of serving equipment for any kitchen or catering set up. In a front of house situation, salvers can be used by waiters as service trays or in buffets as display trays; while in the kitchen they can be used as cooking flats.
These 14” serving flats are the smallest size of salvers we currently have on offer. They are made from polished stainless steel and like all of our serveware products, are cleaned and individually inspected prior to delivery.
Do I need to clean these items before they are returned from hire
Cleaning tableware and serveware hire after a big function is not only a boring job but is also the time when it's most likely to get lost.
It’s the main reason why we have made it compulsory for all tableware and serviceware items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All a customer needs to do is to ensure that all food debris is scraped off tableware before it’s repacked ready for collection.

This item is subject to 20% VAT and therefore you will pay £0.96 each for a standard 3 day hire at checkout.
As primarily a business-to-business supplier we advertise our prices ex-VAT as most businesses will be able to reclaim the VAT amount.
Do you offer discounts for if the item is hired for less than 3 Days?
No. We recommend a minimum hire period of 3 days to provide enough time for set-up and break-down of your event, and to make sure that problems such as traffic or adverse weather conditions do not impact on your event. If you want to hire for a shorter period than this then we cannot offer a discount.
Do you offer discounts for Long Term Hire?
Yes, after the standard hire perion of 3 Days you will be charged £0.16 per extra day up to day 7, £0.12 per extra day up to day 28 and £0.08 per extra day after that.
How much security deposit do you charge?
Nothing! Unlike most of our competitors, rather than charging a large deposit, we provide a FREE 'minor deposit waiver' scheme to cover minor damage and loss. Excessive or negligent damage and loss will be invoiced at 10 times the standard hire price of the relevant items. Please read our terms and conditions for full details.
How much do you charge for delivery?
There is a minimum charge of £20.00 for a distance up to 10 miles each way.
After that we charge £1.00 per mile each way and an additional £20.00 for each journey on a weekend or bank holiday.
We calculate the distance using driving directions from our local base to your event postcode, so it is important that you provide the correct delivery address at checkout.
Unless the two person carriage charge has been paid for, deliveries and collections are made by a single driver, who has 15 minutes to deliver or collect your order.
Our drivers are not allowed to take items up or down stairs or into lifts, and all deliveries need to be made within 50m of the vehicle. If it takes the driver longer then you will be charged £12.50 per additional 15 minutes. If a driver arrives and delivery or collection is impossible then unfortunately an additional carriage charge will be added to your order.
If there are likely to be issues with regards to location, staff onsite or the size of the order, then it's imperative you advise us BEFORE you place your order. Please note that our vans cannot go off-road onto grass or dirt areas, particularly when it has been wet due to the chances of the vehicle getting stuck.
As our drivers are multiple drop drivers, any issues with your delivery or collection of your order could result in issues for other customers. We ask that you are mindful of this when we are delivering or collecting your order.
