Having the right kind of catering equipment is vital if you're cooking outdoors at your event or occasion, and we're here to make it easy for you to find what you need.

What do I need to know before I order Outdoor Catering Hire

The most important thing a customer needs to know is their power requirements. Outdoor cooking equipment often needs a great deal of power, and while electric ovens and cookers do a good job inside, they're not designed to work on either generators or extension leads. We recommend using LPG powered equipment when cooking outside, as LPG offers much more power and is designed to be used outdoors.

However, we do have some outdoor catering hire products that are electrical like our hot dog steamer and popcorn cart. We reccommend checking what power output you have available before hiring as it's possible these can trip a supply that isn't set up to handle it.

What about delivery of Outdoor Catering Hire?

All of our LPG products at Expo Hire Solent include a hose and regulator, allowing them to be connected directly to the bayonet fitting on a standard LPG gas bottle. What's more, we take pride in inspecting all equipment prior to delivery, and with our LPG products, there's no exception.

All items undergo a regular and thorough inspection and testing by a qualified Gas Safe engineer (evidence of this can be provided upon request, once your order is confirmed).

Please be aware that our delivery team are unable to connect or set up equipment for you. If you are not comfortable doing this, please consult a gas safe engineer.

At Expo Hire Solent, we specialise in the hire and supply of high-quality electrical appliances. We know this as we thoroughly clean, check and PAT test all of our products prior to delivery. What's more, our products are fitted with a standard 3 pin UK plug for compatibility. We advise that you check the limitation of your venue's wiring circuit prior to use, to ensure it does not become overloaded.

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.
