Making the most of your kitchen space is important if you are to run an efficient operation. Our collection of storage hire and preparation hire has been designed to help you do just that.

How can I get the most from storage and prep hire?

In a small kitchen, it’s important to make use of every inch of space possible, particularly if you expect to be busy. Our wire shelving for hire is perfect to help create storage space which makes use of vertical space as well as horizontal, offering you a smaller footprint for a wider range of things.

Our preparation tables come with and without splashbacks and are perfect for setting up a kitchen quickly to prepare and cook food. We also have racking and jackstacks available for storage of trays and plates once prepared.

Do I need to clean storage and prep hire before it is returned?

Does the thought of cleaning your catering equipment hire after your event give you the chills? If washing up isn't your forte, or time is a factor while you're getting stuff cleaned up then our "send it back dirty" service might be just what you need.

We know just how dirty catering equipment hire can get after prolonged usage; especially products like ovens and barbecues. Instead of getting out the marigolds and sweating over scrubbing equipment, for just 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. All you need to do is to add the "send it back dirty" service in the checkout and then wipe clean any food debris or liquid before collection; we’ll sort the rest.

What do I need to know about delivery of storage and prep hire?

All of our storage hire and prep hire is cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. Some of it can be quite bulky and heavy, so please bear in mind that access is important. This means that products need to be able to fit through doors; that access be flat and without stairs as our drivers aren't allowed to go up or down them.

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

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.
