Beverage Equipment

Serve tea and coffee at your event or occasion with ease with our range of beverage equipment hire, delivered throughout Bristol and the South West of England

You will need more than a kettle to serve tea and coffee at any event larger than a couple of people. Luckily, our urns, coffee machines and boilers are perfect for the job.

How does beverage equipment hire work?

There are two main kinds of equipment we offer for serving tea and coffee at events.

The first kind of beverage equipment is the water boiler, or as it is also known, the urn. These work by heating a large amount of water constantly, allowing lots of hot drinks to be made quickly without the faff of refilling and reboiling.

The second option is the coffee machine. These take either beans or filter coffee, and make coffee drinks on demand. They can be used to make standard filter coffee, or more complex drinks like espressos, lattes and cappuccinos.

Do I need to clean beverage equipment before it is collected?

Are you worried about cleaning your catering equipment hire after your occasion or event? If time is a factor or you know you’ve got too much else to worry about while packing up, then our "send it back dirty" service is what you need.

We know that catering equipment can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage – especially things like ovens and barbecues. Rather than breaking out the scourer, for 25% of the hire price you can leave it all to us. Just wipe off any food debris or liquid and we'll do the rest once it has been returned. To take advantage of this service simply select in the checkout.

What do I need to know about delivery of beverage equipment hire?

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.

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.
