Table Hire for Reading and Oxford
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 tables for hire as simple a process as possible from picking what you need to getting them delivered to your event in Reading, Berkshire and the surrounding area.
Getting the right kind of tables for 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.
Between those we have banqueting tables, which are the main table hire we offer. These too come in different shapes and sizes to help different sized event spaces. Each table product page helpfully lists the number of people which can sit around it, and also has a recommended size of linen to make ordering a doddle.
Berkshire Chair Hire Specialists
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 Berkshire area – there really isn’t such a thing as a “basic chair”.
Conferences are a good example of this. Conference chair hire needs to not only be durable and stackable so seating configurations can be reset easily, it also needs to be comfortable enough for a delegate to sit in all day without complaint. Our conference chairs for hire meet these specifications perfectly so organisers don’t need to worry.
Banqueting chairs are similar. These have the additional requirement of needing to look pretty too, as they are often for events like weddings and banquets where aesthetics are important. Our range of banqueting chairs for hire are comfy, stackable and gorgeous – and can fit into a tight budget too.
When it comes to outdoor events, being resistant to weather is all important. Our outdoor chairs for hire are designed to be used in all kinds of outdoor settings and can withstand most of what the weather can throw at it. Whether it’s folding chairs for a big outdoor event, or aluminium bistro chairs for a garden party, we have got you covered.
Oven Hire for the whole of the Thames Valley
Getting a temporary or commercial kitchen set up on a budget can be a difficult thing to do, particularly if a customer has not had to hire equipment before. Oven hire is one of the bigger components of any kitchen and getting it right is important.
At Expo Hire Thames Valley we offer a choice of both LPG and electric ovens for hire; deciding which is the right one to order depends on the situation it is being hired into. Electric ovens for hire are for indoor kitchen areas where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food with ease. However, because electric ovens need lots of power they cannot be used outdoors. The wattage required by electric ovens to run is too much for temporary power supplies such as generators and extension leads and these will trip out when used with an electric oven. The correct choice for outdoor kitchens are LPG ovens like our six burner oven as they use LPG bottles to fuel the oven’s powerful burners. However, LPG ovens are not designed to be used indoors due to the potential lack of ventilation of exhaust fumes.
Hiring out 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.
Patio Heater Hire for Oxfordshire
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 Berkshire, South Oxfordshire and Surrey.
We offer two kinds of outdoor patio heater hire; electric and LPG. Electric patio heaters are great solutions when it’s a specific enclosed space to heat up as they provide a focused heat from their lamp. If it’s an outdoor space then LPG patio heater hire is a much better answer as these produce much more heat in a radial pattern.
We’ve built up a fair old bit of experience in patio heater hire and learning from this we really think we have the best gas patio heaters for hire on the market. They’re all easy to start and are fuel efficient so you get value for money. We also supply 13kg LPG canisters separately so you don’t need to worry about getting hold of fuel.
For very large spaces we recommend our space heaters for hire. These are a much more powerful version of a gas heater and kick off a tremendous amount of heat which can warm up a much larger amount of space.
