Linen hire can be a bit scary if you’ve never hired it before, but we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right colour and size for your needs.

What do I need to know about linen hire?

Most linen hire is measured in inches, so it’s important to measure your tables in that format before choosing what you need. Remember to include a bit for the “drape” between the table-top and the floor – the standard banqueting table is 30 inches tall.

Table linen is either square, rectangular or circular. With most tables it should be intuitive what to choose, but for oval tables we recommend the larger rectangular pieces of linen while smaller circular tables normally have a square tablecloth.

Runners and sashes will add an accent of colour to your table and chairs if you don’t want to go overboard, while napkins make a classy accompaniment.

Does linen hire need to be laundered before it is collected?

All of our linen is professionally laundered and pressed ready for dispatched. As one can imagine, this requires industry-specific machinery, which is why we do not expect our customers to launder linen hire prior to us collecting it from them.

For this reason we include our laundry costs in the price of our linen hire and do not charge a separate send it back service charge. All we ask of our customers is that linen hire is repacked in shipping bags dry and free of any food debris. Linen which is returned wet or with food debris attached is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.

How does delivery of linen hire work?

Quickly find out how much it costs for us to deliver event hire to you using our carriage calculator. Tap the Expo Hire Thames Valley logo from anywhere on the website to be taken to the homepage, where you will find the carriage calculator button. 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.

Want to know when your delivery is coming? You can track your driver using our real time maps on the day of delivery and collection. Simply tap the link in the automated text we send you and you can find out where they are - no need to call for updates.
