Southampton is a port city in the county of Hampshire, on the south coast of England. It lies about 15 miles west of Portsmouth, and is part of the South Hampshire built up area which includes the towns of Havant, Waterlooville, Eastleigh and Gosport. The city is home to the largest stretch of medieval walls in England, as well as a number of museums. The Southampton Boat Show is held in the city every September, hosting more than 600 exhibitors and bringing in delegates from across the world to the Mayflower Park. The show lasts more than a week and is the culmination of Sea City, which runs from April to September and celebrates the city's links with the sea.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues across Southampton. Some of what we deliver includes:
Exhibition Hire in Southampton
Exhibitions tend to be one of the biggest events on a company’s calendar regardless whether it’s the Southampton Boat Show or a local trade show. It’s a chance to meet potential suppliers, partners or customers in a commercial environment and good first impressions are vital. Getting the right exhibition hire can make the difference for your stand.
This is why our display cabinets for hire are so popular. These pieces of exhibition furniture hire are designed to put your products and services in the best light possible. We have various configurations available to help match your stand footprint, with options such as lockable storage areas for those customers who are also retailing products.
Another important area of exhibition hire we cover are for meeting spaces. For those with tight spaces, our poseur tables and bar stools offer a contemporary looking solution which is still comfortable. If comfort is the watchword, our sofas for hire and coffee tables are great for a more relaxed meeting place.
Gazebo Hire in Southampton
When holding an outdoor event the last thing you want to be thinking about is if the weather is going to ruin it. This means having space under cover is often a necessity – especially if it’s you who is going to be spending the day subject to the elements. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help make sure your event can be a success even if the weather doesn’t want to play ball.
We deliver gazebos to outdoor events across Southampton, Hampshire and the New Forest and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. All of our pop up gazebos for rent are complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories for them when ordering.
Our pop up gazebo packages for hire are made for commercial customers and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. This means that the gazebos we offer are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is key, but it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy either. The gazebos we offer are 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.
Fridge Hire in Southampton
Keeping drinks and food chilled does not need to be a difficult or expensive proposition. We work with a variety of commercial kitchens as well as with events and functions throughout Southampton and Hampshire to help them with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers frequently deliver fridges for hire to venues in the south coast region, helping to make sure that drinks and food are kept cold at events throughout the year.
We offer a wide selection of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Solent. For example, our upright glass-fronted display fridges are one of the most frequently hired products we have, going out on hire to a variety of places from retailers to small functions. We also have in stock double door bottle coolers which are often used as an under-counter fridge by pop-up bars. For those who require more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.
We understand from experience that commercial kitchens need space to chill and prepare food. To meet this demand, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be moved quickly into position with ease. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.
Patio Heater Hire in Southampton
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.
