We're cooking at our garden party - what is the best outdoor hire for catering?

There isn’t much better than the smell of food cooking outside at a big outdoor event or occasion. While a smaller party can easily make do with a standard bbq, we know that our commercial customers are going to need commercial barbecue hire.

The barbecues for hire we have available have been selected with large outdoor functions in mind and can happily feed hundreds of guests. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard barbecue which features two separate cooking areas, allowing for meat eating and vegetarian menus to be served at the same time without fear of cross-contamination. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get going quickly.

What precautions can we take for our garden party if it rains?

The great outdoors can be a beautiful place to hold an event, whether in the Georgian splendour of Bath or the tranquil countryside of Wiltshire and Somerset. However, that beauty isn’t there so much when it’s raining and if you’re the one stuck out there all day you’re going to want some cover. A pop up gazebo for hire from us can help make sure your event can be a success even if the weather doesn’t want to play ball.

We deliver gazebos to all kinds of events from fayres and fetes to streetfood markets and have both large gazebos for hire and smaller ones in stock. All of our pop up gazebos for rent come complete with side walls and weights so you don’t have to worry about sourcing any accessories for them.

The pop up gazebo packages for hire we have are designed with commercial customers in mind. All the gazebos we offer come with durable coverings and sturdy poles, and while this means that our gazebos are not that suitable for formal events where presentation is more important, it also means that our gazebos aren’t cheap and flimsy. They are also incredibly easy to erect – simply telescope the frame apart until it reaches full size, extend the legs and then put the cover on top.

How can I keep guests at my garden party warm?

Whether it’s a summer evening or a brisk spring day, keeping guests warm at an outdoor event can be challenging. We deliver patio heater hire to venues throughout Bristol, Bath and Somerset to help solve this problem and to ensure your guests remain toasty.

There are two main kinds of outdoor patio heaters for hire available; electric and LPG. Electric patio heaters are best used in specific enclosed spaces, as they offer a directed and focused beam of heat and need a power outlet to plug into. By contrast, outdoor gas patio heaters for hire are the best thing possible for heating up outdoor spaces. They radiate heat outwards from the heater, making them great for garden parties and the like.

We’ve built up a fair amount of knowledge from hiring out patio heaters, which has helped us to source the best ones possible for you. All of our outdoor gas patio heaters for hire are easy to start, are reliable and fuel efficient. We also supply 13kg LPG bottles separately so you don’t need to worry about where to get one from.

For those with huge spaces to heat, our space heaters for hire are perfect. These are a more industrial version of a patio heater, and are capable of heating large spaces for long periods of time.

Hire electrical and LPG items from Expo Hire Bristol & Avon with confidence

We stock and deliver a wide range of electrical products, and live by the moral that we will only hire out items that are of good quality and in good condition. This is why at Expo Hire Bristol and Avon we clean, inspect and PAT test all electricals prior to delivery, and can even provide evidence of this if required. All of our electrical products are fitted with a 3 pin UK plug, meaning they are widely compatible throughout all major venues. Please Note: We advise that you check the limitations of your power supply prior to use, to ensure it is not overloaded.

All of our equipment is supplied complete with a hose and regulator, meaning they can easily be connected to a standard LPG gas bottle via the bayonet fitting.

We pride ourselves on safety at Expo Hire Bristol and Avon. That's why all of our gas equipment is regularly checked and tested by a Gas Safe engineer.

Evidence of this can be provided (on request) upon confirmation of your order. Please Note: Our delivery team cannot connect or set up equipment for you. If you are not comfortable doing this, we advise that you consult a Gas Safe engineer.
