What is tableware and service hire?

In this category you will find a variety of products.

We have a variety of wicker baskets in various sizes for serving fruit and bread. There are small baskets for individual service along with larger baskets for tables and buffets.

If you are serving vegetables as part of a buffet service, our divided and undivided vegetable dishes are perfect. These are often used in the centre of a table so guests can help themselves to portions of veg.

We also stock things such as serving salvers and table vases to add those extra touches to your function or banquet.

Do I need to worry about cleaning tableware hire?

From our experience of delivering tableware to Southampton and the south coast area we've come to learn that cleaning tableware is not only a pain, but the time when it's most likely to go missing.

This is why we have made it mandatory for all tableware and serving items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All we ask of our customers is that all food debris is removed from tableware and serving items before it's packed ready for delivery.

How does delivery of tableware and service hire work?

All of our products are cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. We pack our tableware and service equipment into specialised boxes, complete with bubble wrap to ensure that they arrive with you in the best condition possible.

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.
