Having the right kind of catering equipment is vital if you're cooking outdoors at your event or occasion, and we're here to make it easy for you to find what you need.

What do I need to know before I order Outdoor Catering Hire

The most important thing a customer needs to know is their power requirements. Outdoor cooking equipment often needs a great deal of power, and while electric ovens and cookers do a good job inside, they're not designed to work on either generators or extension leads. We recommend using LPG powered equipment when cooking outside, as LPG offers much more power and is designed to be used outdoors.

However, we do have some outdoor catering hire products that are electrical like our hot dog steamer and popcorn cart. We reccommend checking what power output you have available before hiring as it's possible these can trip a supply that isn't set up to handle it.

What about delivery of Outdoor Catering Hire?

We're very proud at Expo Hire Thames Valley of our commitment to safety with LPG products. All of our gas products are regularly checked and tested by Gas Safe engineers, for safety.

Evidence of this can be provided upon request, once your order has been confirmed. Please Note: All gas equipment from Expo Hire is supplied with a hose and bayonet fitting that can be connected directly to the standard bayonet fitting on your LPG bottles.

Our drivers cannot connect or set up equipment for you. If you are not comfortable with this, please seek advice from a qualified gas engineer.

You can hire with confidence from Expo Hire Thames Valley, as we pride ourselves on delivering products that are of good quality and high standards. With this in mind, we clean, inspect and PAT test all electrical items prior to delivery, and can also provide proof of this if needed. Please Note: Our electrical products are all fitted with a 3 pin UK plug. It may be necessary for you to check the limitations of the wiring in your venue, to ensure you do not overload the system.

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.
