It’s not hard to rent tables from us, even if you are new to the whole idea of hiring furniture. We’ve done everything we can to make getting furniture hire as simple a process as possible from picking what you need to getting them delivered to your event in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester or the surrounding area.
There are three basic types of table to choose from when looking through our catalogue, with each table right for a different kind of setting. For example, coffee tables work best with sofas and armchairs, suiting relaxed meeting spaces and breakout areas. Cocktail tables or poseur tables as they are often called are tall and work best with bar stools. These can also be used for stand-up style meetings, with their small diameter allowing them to fit in a small footprint like an exhibition stand.
The most common style of table we hire out are banqueting tables or trestle tables. These are the standard table for any event where people sit and eat like a wedding reception or banquet. There are different sizes of banqueting tables available, and with this in mind we’ve listed on each product page how many people can sit around each one and what size of linen we recommend.
When looking for chair hire, it’s important to take into consideration the kind of chairs for hire needed. We rent chairs of all types to all kinds of events in the East Midlands area – there really isn’t such a thing as a “basic chair”.
Take conferences as an example. A conference can be a really important event for the organiser to get right, so the chairs that delegates sit in need to be perfect. Our conference chairs for hire are not only stackable and durable, but also comfy – something that guests will appreciate when they’re using them all day.
Banquets, weddings, and functions also need the right kind of chairs. Our banqueting chairs for hire are perfect for this kind of events and come in several styles to match any aesthetic. Our banqueting chairs are designed to be stackable so that they can be stored easily before and after an event, and seating configurations can be reset with ease.
Outdoor events require chairs that can withstand the great British climate, and our outdoor chairs for hire meet those expectations and then some. From folding samsonite chairs and aluminium bistro chairs to comfy rattan sofas we’re bound to have what you need.
The unpredictability of British weather can make hosting an outdoor event a challenge but you can at least be sure to keep your guests warm with patio heater hire. Event organisers rent patio heaters from us throughout the year so that they are less reliant on good weather. We deliver patio heaters for hire throughout the Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire areas.
We offer two kinds of outdoor patio heater hire, which are LPG and electric. Electric patio heaters give off a focused beam of heat which means that they are best used for specific enclosed areas. They need a normal power outlet to plug into as well. For outdoor spaces, gas patio heater hire is far better. These radiate heat outwards in all directions, making them perfect for a proper outdoor function.
We’ve built up a fair amount of knowledge from hiring out patio heaters, which has helped us to source the best ones possible for you. All of our outdoor gas patio heaters for hire are easy to start, are reliable and fuel efficient. We also supply 13kg LPG bottles separately so you don’t need to worry about where to get one from.
If your space is huge then a space heater for hire might be a better option. These are more industrial in both power and volume, and kick off a tremendous amount of heat to warm up the largest of spaces.
Holding an outdoor event in Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire can be a fun experience when the sun is shining. However, we all know how the weather can change very quickly and sometimes it’s necessary to have some space under cover – especially if you’re the one spending all day outside. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help make sure your event can be a success even if the weather is less than great.
We deliver gazebos to all kinds of events and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock to match up to the covered space you need. All of our pop up gazebos for rent come complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories.
The pop up gazebo packages for hire we offer are designed with commercial specifications in mind. They all come with durable coverings and sturdy poles, and while this means that our gazebos are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is key it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy. Our gazebos also incredibly easy to erect – simply telescope the frame apart until it reaches full size, extend the legs and then put the cover on top
