Linen hire can be a bit scary if you’ve never hired it before, but we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right colour and size for your needs.

What do I need to know about linen hire?

Most linen hire is measured in inches, so it’s important to measure your tables in that format before choosing what you need. Remember to include a bit for the “drape” between the table-top and the floor – the standard banqueting table is 30 inches tall.

Table linen is either square, rectangular or circular. With most tables it should be intuitive what to choose, but for oval tables we recommend the larger rectangular pieces of linen while smaller circular tables normally have a square tablecloth.

Runners and sashes will add an accent of colour to your table and chairs if you don’t want to go overboard, while napkins make a classy accompaniment.

Does linen hire need to be laundered before it is collected?

Before we dispatch our linen hire, we have it professionally laundered and pressed so it is sent out in the best condition. Do do this requires industry-specific machinery and that is why we don't expect our customers to launder their linen hire before we come to collect it.

It's for this reason we include the cost of laundry in our linen hire price. All we ask of our cusotmers is that when repacking linen in shipping bags ready for collection, they make sure that it is dry and free of any food debris. Linen returned wet or with attached food debris is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.

How does delivery of linen hire work?

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.

Want to know when your delivery is coming? You can track your driver using our real time maps on the day of delivery and collection. Simply tap the link in the automated text we send you and you can find out where they are - no need to call for updates.
