We're cooking at our garden party - what is the best outdoor hire for catering?

Cooking food outside at a big event or function doesn’t need to be a chore with the right equipment. While a garden party can easily make do with a standard bbq, we know that for our commercial customers, commercial barbecue hire is going to be needed.

The barbecues for hire we have available in stock have been chosen with large outdoor functions in mind and can easily feed hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which among other things features two separate cooking areas, allowing for meat and vegetarian menus to be cooked at the same time without fear of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going quickly.

What precautions can we take for our garden party if it rains?

Rain is both unpredictable and inconsistent. It’s possible to have days of glorious sunshine in Berkshire, Surrey and South Oxfordshire only for the drops to start falling when you have an event. This means it’s often key to have some under cover space at your event – particularly 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 doesn’t want to play ball.

We deliver gazebos to all kinds of events and occasions and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. 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 for them.

The pop up gazebo packages for hire we have are made to commercial specifications and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. While this means that our gazebos are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is of utmost importance, it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy. They 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.

How can I keep guests at my garden party warm?

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 heaters for 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.
