How can I get the most from storage and prep hire?

In a small kitchen, it’s important to make use of every inch of space possible, particularly if you expect to be busy. Our wire shelving for hire is perfect to help create storage space which makes use of vertical space as well as horizontal, offering you a smaller footprint for a wider range of things.

Our preparation tables come with and without splashbacks and are perfect for setting up a kitchen quickly to prepare and cook food. We also have racking and jackstacks available for storage of trays and plates once prepared.
