If you're looking for speciality crockery hire to complete your place settings, you're in the right place. From platters to cake stands, we've got what you need.
For some things you need specific equipment and this is when speciality crockery hire comes to the fore. From platters and serving dishes for buffets to tapas dishes and even cake stands, we’ve got a little bit of everything you could need.
If you’re serving food in a buffet setting, you’ll need more than just plates. Platters are a stylish way of serving larger quantities of food ready for your guests to pick and choose. We have oval and rectangular platters to help meet the requirements of the fussiest caterer.
Tapas dishes are great for serving little portions of food. These can either be singular or in presentation sets and are smaller than normal plates and dishes. These can come in a variety of shapes and types, to match the food being served.
Cake stands are not just an important part of wedding receptions, but are also used in many other kinds of events. Afternoon tea stands are popular for serving cakes and finger buffets, while the larger square based cake stands hold gateaux and sponge cakes as well as the more traditional wedding cake.
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.
All of our speciality crockery hire items are cleaned and checked before we dispatch them. We use branded packing boxes and plenty of bubble wrap to make sure they reach you in tip-top condition. However, we know from experience the unexpected can happen in transit and as such we always recommend adding a couple of extras in to ensure mishaps can’t ruin an 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.
