Crockery hire is one of the cornerstones of what we do at Solent Event Hire. We keep large quantities in stock to cater to even the largest of functions.

What kinds of crockery hire are there?

There are four main kinds of crockery hire we have available.

Plates and platters are the most common pieces of crockery hire we have available on our site. These range from small plates for bread to huge platters for buffet service.

For those serving soups, salads and puddings bowls are essential. These come in a range of shapes and sizes to meet your requirements.

Cups and saucers are essential for those who are offering tea and coffee. We offer standard size regular cups for those who are sticking with the basics, along with espresso and cappuccino cups for those who want a more upmarket offering.

We also stock a wide range of service crockery options like cake stands for more specialised events and functions.

How does delivery of crockery hire work?

All of our crockery hire is cleaned and checked before being packed into crates for delivery. While every effort is made to ensure that they reach you in great condition, accidents in transit do happen and we urge customers to consider adding a few extra pieces to cover unexpected eventualities. We also ask that food debris and liquid is removed from crockery before it is returned to us.

We deliver from Solent Event Hire to the whole of Southampton and the South Coast including to Southampton, Portsmouth, Bournemouth, Hampshire, Dorset and Wiltshire. Check the carriage calculator on the home page to find out how much a standard delivery costs.
