Speciality Glasses

Whether it’s port, sherry or even coffee, having the right glass to serve it is important. We offer a range of speciality glasses for delivery throughout Southampton and the South Coast.

Speciality glasses are important when the drinks on the menu at an occasion are special. For example, if you’re offering port as an aperitif, it would be criminal not to use the proper speciality glasses for hire.

What kind of speciality glass hire do we offer?

There are many kinds of speciality glasses for hire available from us. These range from things like sherry glasses for hire to liqueur glasses for hire. These are generally small and a very detailed style of glass befitting the type of drink being served. We also offer speciality coffee glasses for hire for those who want to make the postprandial coffee just a little bit more elegant. These glasses are designed to hold hot liquids and come with a handle to make them easier to hold.

Does speciality glass hire need to be cleaned before it is collected?

One thing we've learned from our experience of glassware hire is that most glass breakages occur not while people are using them, but when they are cleaning them.

It's because of this we have made it compulsory for all glassware items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All a customer needs to do when they repack glassware ready for collection is make sure it's free of food debris and liquid.

How do we deliver speciality glass hire?

All speciality glasses for hire are cleaned and checked prior to delivery. We use specialised packing crates to deliver glasses to minimise damage caused in transit. Unfortunately damage can happen, so we always recommend ordering a little bit more than is needed for an event in case the unexpected does occur.

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.
