Bowls

Our selection of bowls for hire has been designed to ensure that every potential dish can be catered for. Take a look through what we can deliver to your next occasion in Southampton and the South Coast.

From soups to salads, and from rice to risottos, the humble bowl is a useful piece of crockery for any place setting. We have a wide range of bowls available which will meet almost any food ideas we can think of.

What kind of bowls for hire work in which settings

If you’re confused by which bowl works best, we can offer some guidance to help you. Our most basic design is the oatmeal bowl. This bowl is great for soups and desserts alike and matches our other white crockery in shade. The oatmeal bowl offers a shallower curve than our rice bowls, which tend to be used as the name suggests for rice served on the side of a main meal.

If you’re looking for a slightly different style we also have square and tear shaped bowls, while our lions head soup bowls offer a certain gravitas to a place setting. All of our bowls are listed with capacity so you can be certain that it will work with the food you plan to serve.

Do I need to clean bowl hire before it is collected?

Did you know that crockery is most likely to be broken while it is being washed up? This is something we've learned from our experience of crockery hire in Southampton and the South Coast over the years.

Because of this, we have had to make it mandatory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing a customer needs to do is to ensure plates, bowls etc are scraped clean of food debris and liquid residue and repacked ready for collection.

How does delivery work with bowls for hire?

We check and clean each and every piece of bowl hire before packing them into crates with bubble wrap for safe delivery. We’ve got lots of experience in doing this sort of thing, so our bowls should reach you ready to be used. However, we always recommend ordering a little bit more than you need to prevent any unexpected damages from ruining your event.

Finding out how much your delivery of event hire cost is easy. Simply tap the Expo Hire Solent logo anywhere on the website to be taken to the homepage where you will find the carriage calculator button. This clever widget will not only give you the exact costs to your venue postcode, it will also confirm which website is closest so you don’t have to worry about overpaying.

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.
