While the humble table knife might be one of the most basic items we hire out, it is also one of the most important for anyone who is serving food at their event or special occasion. We’ve always got thousands in stock and are ready to serve parties no matter how big or small.

What are the different kinds of knife hire available?

There are generally two types of standard knives in any place setting. The table knife is the longer of the two and can be used both for cutting up food or for spreading things such as butter. The shorter style of knife is the dessert knife, which is used with foods like cakes and biscuits.

Styles can differ by the patterning on the handle or by type of metal used. Stainless steel knives are the most commonly used, but there has increasingly been a trend for gold and silver coloured cutlery in recent years.

Do I have to clean my knives for hire before they are returned?

Nobody enjoys washing up piles of cutlery the day after a big event or function - but did you know this is when pieces of cutlery hire is most likely to go missing?

This is the main reason why we have made it mandatory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. This means all you have to do when repacking your cutlery hire ready for collection is to ensure all food debris has been removed.

What do I need to know about delivery of knife hire?

We clean and check all knives for hire before we band them together into packs ready for delivery. We don’t polish cutlery however, and we recommend that if you’re looking for a perfect finish it’s worth spending a little time buffing up cutlery once it’s arrived. With larger orders it’s always worth ordering a little bit extra, just to cover any eventuality.

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.
