How does the hire of gas bottles work?
As an event hire company, consumables are treated a little bit differently than our other products. We have two kinds of consumable products at Expo Hire; the rules about them are as follows.
As gas bottles can be refilled both by the customer and ourselves, these are not treated as sold consumables. The hire price shown for these items are for the gas bottles themselves, which can then be refilled as and when a customer requires. All LPG bottles returned to us have to be replaced as per our gas safety agreements and therefore we cannot refund any customers for unused gas.
Water bottles are sold rather than hired and are delivered full and sealed. As these can be recycled we do pick up the empty bottles to help that process. Likewise, as chafing fuel pots cannot be refilled these are sold rather than hired.
Hire LPG Equipment with confidence from Expo 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.
