If you're looking to serve afternoon tea at your event or special occasion then afternoon tea stands are a must. These stands are capable of taking plates up to 8" in diameter (160mm), which can be interchanged for different looks.
Our afternoon tea stands are supplied with standard white porcelain side plates, which are freezer, dishwasher and microwave proof, however for a more glamorous tea party you could accessorise the stand by breaking out your best bone china.
Do I need to worry about cleaning afternoon tea stands before collection?
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 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.
Supplied with white plates
What is the price including VAT?
This item is subject to 20% VAT and therefore you will pay
each for a standard 3 day hire at checkout.
As primarily a
business-to-business supplier we advertise our prices ex-VAT as
most businesses will be able to

Do you offer discounts for if the item is hired for less than 3 Days?
No. We recommend a minimum hire period of 3 days to provide
enough time for set-up and break-down of your event, and to make sure that problems such as traffic or
adverse weather conditions do not impact on your event. If you want to hire for a shorter period than this
then we cannot offer a discount.

Yes, after the standard hire perion of 3 Days you will be charged
£0.80 per extra day up to day 7,

How much security deposit do you charge?
Nothing! Unlike most of our competitors, rather than charging a large
deposit, we provide a FREE 'minor deposit waiver' scheme to
cover minor damage and loss. Excessive or negligent damage and
loss will be invoiced at 10 times the standard hire price of
the relevant items. Please read our terms and conditions for

We calculate the distance using driving directions from our local base to your event postcode, so it is important that you provide the correct delivery address at checkout.
