Dorset is a county in South West England on the English Channel coast. Covering an area of 1,024 square miles, Dorset borders Devon to the west, Somerset to the north-west, Wiltshire to the north-east, and Hampshire to the east. The county town is Dorchester which is in the south. Dorset is a largely rural county, with many small villages, only a few large towns and no cities. The only built up area is the South East Dorset conurbation. The twin attractions of pretty rural villages and beautiful beaches have made Dorset a popular tourist destination for many holidaymakers, and the coastal towns of Weymouth, Poole and Bournemouth all benefit massively from the tourist sector.
At this time, only a portion of this area is within our service radius, so it is important to check our carriage calculator with your event postcode to ensure we can help you. We try to improve our service radius frequently, so please feel free to check back at a later date.
We're proud to deliver event hire to venues in Dorset. Some of the products we deliver are outlined below:
When holding an outdoor event the last thing you want to be thinking about is if the weather is going to ruin it. This means having space under cover is often a necessity – especially if it’s you who is going to be spending the day subject to the elements. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help make sure your event can be a success even if the weather doesn’t want to play ball.
We deliver gazebos to outdoor events across Southampton, Hampshire and the New Forest and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. All of our pop up gazebos for rent are complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories for them when ordering.
Our pop up gazebo packages for hire are made for commercial customers and come with durable coverings and sturdy poles. This means that the gazebos we offer are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is key, but it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy either. The gazebos we offer are also incredibly easy to erect – simply telescope the frame apart until it reaches full size, extend the legs and then put the cover on top.
It’s not hard to rent tables from us for your next event in Southampton or the surrounding area. We’ve got a huge range of tables for hire which are suitable for all kinds of occasion, whether it’s an informal meeting space or a big banquet.
Getting the right kind of furniture hire is a simple process. There are three types of table on hire, which match different styles of seating. For bar stools and stand-up type affairs, the tallest kind of table is best. These tables are known as cocktail tables or poseur tables and normally quite small in diameter, helping to maximise space. For relaxed meeting spaces with sofas and armchairs, a coffee table makes a great addition as a space for drinks or promotional material.
In the middle of these is the most common type of table we hire out, banqueting tables or trestle tables. These are used for any occasion where people sit and eat, like a wedding reception or banquet. They come in different shapes and sizes to match different sizes of rooms – but choosing the right one isn’t hard as we list on each product page how many people can sit around each table and which linen is best used with it.
Cooking food at a big outdoor event like a fayre or a festival is very easy with the right equipment in place. While a garden party can make do with just a small bbq, we know that for our commercial customers, commercial barbecue hire is going to be essential.
The barbecues for hire we have available have been chosen with large outdoor events in mind and are readily capable of feeding hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which has features such as two separate cooking areas, allowing for both meat and vegetarian menus to be cooked simultaneously without any fear of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going quickly.
Worried about keeping your guests warm at an outdoor event? Our patio heaters for hire can help ensure you keep your guests toasty for longer. We deliver outdoor gas heaters for hire all around Southampton, Hampshire and Dorset, ensuring you can have the outdoor event without breaking the bank.
We offer two kinds of outdoor patio heaters for hire, which are LPG and electric. Electric patio heaters give off a focused beam of heat which means that they are best used for specific enclosed areas. They need a normal power outlet to plug into as well. For outdoor spaces, gas patio heater hire is far better. These radiate heat outwards in all directions, making them perfect for a proper outdoor function.
As can be imagined, we’ve had many organisers rent patio heaters from us and from this we’ve built up a wealth of knowledge. All of our outdoor patio heaters for hire are easy to start, reliable and fuel efficient. We also hire out 13kg LPG canisters so that there is no need to worry about where fuel is coming from.
If the space you have to heat is huge then our space heaters for hire might be a better solution. These are more industrial and noisier than a standard patio heater, but they give off an immense amount of heat which will heat a much larger area.
Keeping drinks and food chilled does not need to be a difficult or expensive proposition. We work with a variety of commercial kitchens as well as with events and functions throughout Southampton and Hampshire to help them with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers frequently deliver fridges for hire to venues in the south coast region, helping to make sure that drinks and food are kept cold at events throughout the year.
We offer a wide selection of fridges for hire at Expo Hire Solent. For example, our upright glass-fronted display fridges are one of the most frequently hired products we have, going out on hire to a variety of places from retailers to small functions. We also have in stock double door bottle coolers which are often used as an under-counter fridge by pop-up bars. For those who require more specialist products, we also have wine fridges, countertop fridges and chilled drink dispensers available.
We understand from experience that commercial kitchens need space to chill and prepare food. To meet this demand, we offer counter fridges with integrated workspaces which can be moved quickly into position with ease. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.
