From speech days to school proms, from PTA summer fetes to examinations we work with schools on a huge range of events. We understand that timings can be crucial due to student movement, and how difficult it can be sometimes to get hold of a credit card. Don't worry, we deal with both local authority run schools and academies all the time.
Our work with schools can be broken down into three main areas. We often work with canteens directly, or third party service providers to cover special events that require extra catering, a breakdown in the canteen that requires catering equipment to be delivered as soon as possible and thirdly to provide temporary full kitchens whilst the schools is either being repaired or replaced.
We also supply numerous schools with examination equipment such as ISO exam desk hire, along with accompanying chairs.
Whilst not the school directly, we also get involved with PTA's on a very regular basis. We supply equipment to numerous Summer Fetes, Christmas parties and various other fundraising events.
Finally, and the newest one, school proms and awards nights. Very glamorous, very demanding and usually a fairly tight budget.
How does Expo Hire deliver event hire to schools?
Sorting out delivery of hire equipment can be a stress, especially if it’s an urgent requirement. At Expo Hire we’ve done everything we can to make it as easy as possible.
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 Expo Hire can work with schools purchasing protocols
At Expo Hire our experience with working with entities within the public sector has helped us to understand the economic constraints and bureaucracy that sector has to comply with.
We have made it as easy as possible for anyone to place an order online with easy payment by credit or debit card as well as a deposit scheme for larger advance orders. However, we also understand that some public sector entities must go through purchasing order protocols and require paperwork before an order can be placed.
To assist with this, we have made it possible for an indicative quote to be emailed to any customer once all details have been entered into the checkout. Once this is approved, simply contact us at email@example.com with your purchase order details and quote number and we will be happy to help.
