For independent TV and Film production companies, hire equipment can help make shoots much easier. We’ve worked with companies at filming locations throughout the country, delivering hire equipment for a wide-range of product shoots, adverts and programmes.
How can we help TV and Film production companies with catering equipment hire?
At Expo Hire we’ve tried to make renting kitchen equipment hire from us as easy as possible. All of our products are listed online complete with pricing and availability so there is no need to go back and forth getting quotes etc.
As you'd expect from a large kitchen hire supplier, we have a huge range of catering equipment available. We've supplied many shoots with fridges and freezers to store food prior to filming, along with other kitchen equipment such as ovens for cookery shoots. All of our equipment is sourced from excellent suppliers to ensure it is consistently reliable for your piece of mind. All electrical equipment is checked and PAT tested prior to being dispatched, with a PAT sticker placed on the plug as confirmation.
What kinds of furniture do we hire out to TV and Film production companies?
The wide selection of TV and film productions we work with is reflected in the different styles of furniture hire we offer. We're proud to have worked with productions from panel shows to advertising shoots with great success.
At the top end of the scale, our Chesterfield sofas for hire come in a range of colours and are perfect for high end discussion shows where style is key. We also offer tub chairs and armchairs for hire which are particularly good for panel shows, as well as bar stools and poseur tables for more informal looks. At the other end of the scale we have large amounts of conference chairs and folding chairs available which are great for setting up temporary audience seating.
How does delivery work for TV and Film production companies
One of the major bugbears for anyone involved with organising an event can be ensuring equipment and furniture arrives on time. We know how the days leading up to an event can be stressful and can appreciate that chasing a delivery time is one of the last things anyone wants to do.
Uniquely in the event hire industry, we have made it possible for our customers to track their delivery. Simply enter the order number and postcode on our order tracking page and you can see on the map where our driver is and how long it will take for him to get to you.
In addition to this, we send out automated text messages on the day of delivery and collection which confirm your place in our delivery schedule along with a personalised link to our order tracking page, allowing you to find our your delivery status even when away from your computer.
How can we help TV and Film production companies budget?
The last few years has taught everyone in the hospitality industry just how easily a lack of cashflow can cause problems, making many event organisers and venue owners much warier about how they budget for events.
We understand this well too and have introduced a deposit scheme to reward those event organisers who plan their events early. The deposit scheme allows any event organiser to pay just a 25% deposit on their order, with the remainder due 28 days before delivery.
There’s no application form or quote needed; our clever website checkout will automatically offer this option provided the order value total is over £500 and the delivery date is more than a month away. Full details of this can be found in our terms and conditions.
