What do I need to know about plates for hire

Plates come in lots of different shapes and sizes but there are some standards that you can use to plan your plate hire needs. The smallest size of circular plate we do is are six inches in diameter and are commonly used as side plates of bread plates. Eight inch plates are used for starters and desserts, while ten inch plates are used for main plates for meals. If your guests have big appetites you might choose to go for the 12 inch version instead.

Square plates are often used for meals, but care must be taken when deciding what to use. These are measured diagonally, so the size given is for corner to corner rather than side to side.

You can also choose if you want winged plates, which come with a raised area which is used for holding them, or straight plates.

Do plates for hire need to be cleaned before they are collected?

If there is one thing we've learned from hiring crockery in Manchester and the surrounding areas, it's that not only is washing crockery hire up is a boring chore, but it's when crockery is most likely to get broken while on hire.

It's for this reason we have had to make it compulsory for all crockery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. This means that the only thing you need to do before we collect is to make sure crockery is free of food debris and liquids, and repacked in the boxes supplied.
