If you're running a bar at your next event or special occasion then it's worth thinking about accessories like this Waiters Friend. This handy little tool combines a corkscrew and a bottle opener with a blade for removing wrapping from bottles - everything you need to get the drinks flowing and the party popping.
Like all of our bar hire, we clean and check each Waiters Friend before we pack them ready for delivery.
Do I need to clean this product ready for collection?
Worried about washing up? Concerned about cleaning up? If you've got a big event then sorting out the chores afterwards is going to be one job you might not want to do. Thankfully with our "send it back dirty" service, you can at least leave the washing up to us.
If you add the "send it back dirty" option in the checkout, we will sort out cleaning your items when they are returned to us. For just 25% of the hire price, all you need to do is to make sure there is no food debris or liquids remaining on or in your items when you pack them up for collection - we'll sort out the rest.
