What our customers say
As part of Expo Hire UK Ltd, the UK's leading online only catering and event hire company, Expo Hire Solent have built up a formidable reputation for the excellence of our equipment combined with an unstinting focus on service. We are proud to work with businesses, event planners and exhibition organisers throughout the South Coast region to help them make their events the very best that they can be.
We specialise in supplying equipment to the offices and workplaces of Southampton and the South Coast, and to the large conference and exhibition venues throughout Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. We are regular visitors to large trade shows and exhibitions and are happy to work with exhibitors to ensure the highly pressurised environment of these events passes off without a hitch.
As an internet-only event hire company, all of our prices and availability of stock are shown on our website to allow customers to complete their orders online with the minimum of fuss. We're the only event hire company to offer live tracking on all deliveries and collections, ensuring that our customers can get on with their final event preparations without stress.
It’s not hard to rent tables from us for your next event in Southampton or the surrounding area. We’ve got a huge range of tables for hire which are suitable for all kinds of occasion, whether it’s an informal meeting space or a big banquet.
Getting the right kind of furniture hire is a simple process. There are three types of table on hire, which match different styles of seating. For bar stools and stand-up type affairs, the tallest kind of table is best. These tables are known as cocktail tables or poseur tables and normally quite small in diameter, helping to maximise space. For relaxed meeting spaces with sofas and armchairs, a coffee table makes a great addition as a space for drinks or promotional material.
In the middle of these is the most common type of table we hire out, banqueting tables or trestle tables. These are used for any occasion where people sit and eat, like a wedding reception or banquet. They come in different shapes and sizes to match different sizes of rooms – but choosing the right one isn’t hard as we list on each product page how many people can sit around each table and which linen is best used with it.
Getting chair hire right is the difference between having comfy guests at your event or a sea of frowns. We deliver chair hire to venues throughout Southampton and the surrounding area for all kinds of events and occasions.
Conferences can be very important events for the people involved and the last thing any organiser would want to worry about is poor quality conference chairs. Our conference chairs for hire are designed to be both practical and comfortable to ensure the best possible result.
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.
If your next event is outdoors, then you will require outdoor chairs for hire that can handle anything the weather can throw at it. We have folding samsonite chairs for hire in large quantities for events which need large numbers of seating, along with aluminium chairs and rattan sofas for more intimate affairs.
Setting up any kind of kitchen requires some careful choices to make sure equipment is not only right for the food to be cooked but also for the setting it is being used in. Oven hire is one of the bigger components of any kitchen and getting that wrong can be an expensive mistake.
At Expo Hire London we offer the choice of both LPG and electric ovens for hire; each of which are designed for different usage. Electric ovens for hire are for indoor areas where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food easily. However, because electric ovens need lots of power to run they cannot be used outdoors. The wattage required by electric ovens can easily trip temporary power supplies such as generators and extension leads. The portability of LPG bottles make LPG ovens the perfect choice for usage outside; even an oven with powerful burners like our six burner oven can happily run off an LPG bottle. However, LPG ovens are not designed to be used indoors due to the potential lack of ventilation of exhaust fumes.
Offering high quality stock has always been something that we pride ourselves upon and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new ones. This is particularly important with ovens which are often the main workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.
Worried about keeping your guests warm at an outdoor event? Our patio heaters for hire can help ensure you keep your guests toasty for longer. We deliver outdoor gas heaters for hire all around Southampton, Hampshire and Dorset, ensuring you can have the outdoor event without breaking the bank.
We offer two kinds of outdoor 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.
As can be imagined, we’ve had many organisers rent patio heaters from us and from this we’ve built up a wealth of knowledge. All of our outdoor patio heaters for hire are easy to start, reliable and fuel efficient. We also hire out 13kg LPG canisters so that there is no need to worry about where fuel is coming from.
If the space you have to heat is huge then our space heaters for hire might be a better solution. These are more industrial and noisier than a standard patio heater, but they give off an immense amount of heat which will heat a much larger area.
