What is tableware and service hire?

In this category you will find a variety of products.

We have a variety of wicker baskets in various sizes for serving fruit and bread. There are small baskets for individual service along with larger baskets for tables and buffets.

If you are serving vegetables as part of a buffet service, our divided and undivided vegetable dishes are perfect. These are often used in the centre of a table so guests can help themselves to portions of veg.

We also stock things such as serving salvers and table vases to add those extra touches to your function or banquet.

Do I need to worry about cleaning tableware hire?

If you've ever cleaned tableware after a big event or function, you probably wouldn't be that surprised to read that during cleaning is when most bits of tableware hire go missing.

Because of this we have had to make it mandatory for all tableware and serving items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. This means instead of worrying about cleaning items, just make sure that any food debris is removed before packing it up for collection.

How does delivery of tableware and service hire work?

All of our products are cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. We pack our tableware and service equipment into specialised boxes, complete with bubble wrap to ensure that they arrive with you in the best condition possible.

It’s easier than ever to find out the delivery and collection costs to and from your venue for event hire. Tap the Expo Hire Bristol & Avon logo from any page on the website to be taken to the homepage where you will find our carriage calculator button. Enter your postcode into the clever widget and not only will it tell you what the carriage cost is to that venue but also which of our websites is closest so that you don’t pay any more than you should.

You’ll also find a list of all our possible extra surcharges on that page. If applicable, these are confirmed in the checkout once you have confirmed your delivery address along with dates of delivery and collection. They’re itemised in full before you make payment so that there are no nasty surprises, and you know exactly what you are paying for.
