What is tableware and service hire?

In this category you will find a variety of products.

We have a variety of wicker baskets in various sizes for serving fruit and bread. There are small baskets for individual service along with larger baskets for tables and buffets.

If you are serving vegetables as part of a buffet service, our divided and undivided vegetable dishes are perfect. These are often used in the centre of a table so guests can help themselves to portions of veg.

We also stock things such as serving salvers and table vases to add those extra touches to your function or banquet.

Do I need to worry about cleaning tableware hire?

Cleaning tableware and serving hire after a big event is not only a tiresome chore but is also the time when it's most likely to get lost.

It’s the main reason why we have made it compulsory for all tableware and serving items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All a customer needs to do is to ensure that all food debris is scraped off tableware before it’s repacked ready for collection.

How does delivery of tableware and service hire work?

All of our products are cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. We pack our tableware and service equipment into specialised boxes, complete with bubble wrap to ensure that they arrive with you in the best condition possible.

Quickly find out how much it costs for us to deliver event hire to you using our carriage calculator.

Enter your postcode into the clever widget and find out not only the carriage charge, but also confirm which of our websites is closest to you so you never overpay for delivery.

We also list all possible surcharges on that page. If any of these are applicable, they are confirmed in the checkout once you have reconfirmed your delivery address and dates, and are itemised in full so there are no nasty surprises before you pay.
