If you are planning an event of any kind, from a birthday party or a wedding to a large, international corporate event you need the tools to do the job right. This means you need a suitable venue and so much more. You need food, furniture and catering equipment.
But the big question is do you hire equipment or buy it outright?
With an unlimited budget and lots of future events in the books, you might be tempted to buy. But there are a number of ways that catering equipment and furniture hire can prove a more worthwhile alternative.

Reasons for Hiring Catering Equipment & Furniture
If you only require catering or kitchen equipment for a short period, hire specialists like Allens Hire in London can offer an attractive price which stacks up favourably against the purchase price of the same things.
Buy catering equipment or furniture and you’ll be burdened with looking after it when it isn’t in use. With hire furniture, tableware and more, you don’t have to worry about these items until they are required to ensure your event is a success.
At Allens Hire, a fleet of drivers are ready and waiting to deliver catering equipment, such as tableware, tables, chairs and kitchen equipment , to your door; no matter where in London or the South of England your event is to be held. This is one of the major benefits of hiring for an event. We bring the equipment to you.
You might wish to purchase your own outdoor BBQ, garden heaters or chest freezers but when disaster strikes you could be sorry you didn’t simply hire them out. We maintain our inventory of gas and electrical products so there is a good range to choose from. We never distribute an item without first performing a series of checks.
When gas appliances are involved, health and safety should be a high priority. At Allens Hire we are gas certified and PAT trained to ensure that our equipment is safe to use when it leaves the premises and each appliance carries Safety and Operating instructions to ensure that you have the best advice whilst appliances are in your care.
Once your event draws to a close, and the fun is over, the hard work truly begins. At least that’s the case if you’ve used your own tableware and it’s your job to clean up. When you hire catering equipment from Allens Hire, we offer to do the cleaning for you, so you can return the equipment dirty for us to do the job for you and alleviate you of this task at least!
Fashion is constantly changing. But that doesn’t simply mean that clothing changes. The popular ways to decorate an event change too. When you buy furniture, tablecloths and more, their so-called ‘trendiness’ may diminish over time. But a hire company like Allens remains at the forefront of the event planning industry, providing insight into trends of the moment and has a carefully chosen portfolio to theme your event in your chosen colours. Every time you host a party, sporting or corporate event you will have access an excellent range of equipment for the job; and the looking good to boot.
No two events are ever truly the same and so the best catering equipment and furniture projects are truly bespoke. That’s what you get when you hire catering equipment for each individual event. You can request exactly the things you need to cater a birthday party of less than 50 people or a corporate event for hundreds. Allens Hire advisors can work closely with every client to ensure that they receive a tailored project that is perfect for their needs.
