Speciality Glasses

Whether it’s port, sherry or even coffee, having the right glass to serve it is important. We offer a range of speciality glasses for delivery throughout Bristol and the South West of England.

Speciality glasses are important when the drinks on the menu at an occasion are special. For example, if you’re offering port as an aperitif, it would be criminal not to use the proper speciality glasses for hire.

What kind of speciality glass hire do we offer?

There are many kinds of speciality glasses for hire available from us. These range from things like sherry glasses for hire to liqueur glasses for hire. These are generally small and a very detailed style of glass befitting the type of drink being served. We also offer speciality coffee glasses for hire for those who want to make the postprandial coffee just a little bit more elegant. These glasses are designed to hold hot liquids and come with a handle to make them easier to hold.

Does speciality glass hire need to be cleaned before it is collected?

Washing glasses after a big event is one of the worst jobs, especially when one is feeling delicate. Not only that, but glassware is most frequently broken on hire while they are being cleaned.

It's for this reason we have made it compulsory for all glassware items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing we ask our customers to do is to ensure there is no residual liquid or food debris in them before they are packed ready for collection.

How do we deliver speciality glass hire?

All speciality glasses for hire are cleaned and checked prior to delivery. We use specialised packing crates to deliver glasses to minimise damage caused in transit. Unfortunately damage can happen, so we always recommend ordering a little bit more than is needed for an event in case the unexpected does occur.

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.
