Get the best catering equipment hire for your kitchen. All of our electric equipment is PAT tested while our LPG equipment is regularly certified by a Gas Safe engineer

Choosing the right catering equipment hire can be tricky but we’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you with our selection.

How do I know which kind of oven hire I need to choose?

Preparing food for guests at any kind of event or function normally means using an oven for at least part of the menu. Making the right decision on what oven hire to get is important as errors can prove costly and potentially even ruin the day.

At Expo Hire North West we offer both LPG and electric ovens for hire; the choice to make depends on the situation the oven is going to be used in. Electric ovens for hire are perfect for indoor events and commercial kitchens where they can be used to bake, roast and grill food to perfection. However, these ovens draw huge amounts of power and as such they’re not suitable for use at outdoor events. This is because the power required is too much for generators and extension leads and they can trip out easily while using them. LPG ovens like our six burner oven are what is needed outdoors, as they can use LPG bottles to fuel the powerful burners both inside the oven and on top.

We’ve always had a focus on offering the highest quality of products and because of this we frequently replace our ovens with new stock. This is especially important with ovens which are often the workhorse of a kitchen and allows our customers to order from us with peace of mind.

What kind of fridge hire is there?

If you need to keep food or drinks cold at your next event or occasion, chances are you are going to need a fridge for hire. We work with events of all kinds along with commercial kitchens throughout Manchester, Liverpool and Lancashire to help with their fridge hire needs. Our expert drivers deliver fridges for hire across the region frequently, helping to ensure that event organisers can quickly set up without worry.

There are several different fridges for hire on offer at Expo Hire North West. The upright display fridges are our most frequently hired fridge, going everywhere from retailers at exhibitions at Manchester Central to event hosts offering chilled drinks. We also have double door bottle coolers which are great for bars, fitting snugly under counters. For those looking for something a bit more specialist in nature we also have wine fridges, counter top fridges and chilled drink dispensers.

We know that commercial kitchens need plenty of space to not only store food but also to prepare it. With this in mind, we have counter fridges with integrated work spaces which are designed for this and can be wheeled quickly into position ready for use before a busy day. At the other end of the spectrum, our extra large double door fridges are just what is needed for kitchens with large storage requirements.

Is there commercial barbecue hire available?

Big outdoor events often feature a barbecue as a quick and easy way of offering food. While a garden party can get away with a small bbq set, for our commercial customers proper barbecue hire is needed.

The barbecues for hire we have in stock have been chosen with large events in mind and can feed hundreds of guests without a problem. The Cinders barbecue is an industry standard, featuring two cooking areas which makes having a separate vegetarian menu a much simpler task. We also stock gas bottles and wrenches so customers can be sure they have everything they need to get grilling.

Do you need to order gas?

All of our LPG equipment is supplied without gas bottles. Please order separately if you need them

  • 13kg LPG Bottles are suitable for patio heaters
  • 19kg LPG Bottles are suitable for all other LPG equipment we stock
  • 30mm wrench required to attach bottles to equipment - can also be hired separately
  • If unsure about connecting bottles to equipment utilise a Gas Safe Engineer

What do I need to know about catering equipment hire?

All of our electric products are cleaned, checked and PAT tested prior to delivery. At Expo Hire North West we pride ourselves on safety and as such we can provide evidence of inspection and PAT testing prior to delivery. All of our electric products are powered by a standard three pin UK plug, meaning you can simply plug and play. But remember, you'll need to check your power requirements prior to use, to ensure they are not overloaded.

We pride ourselves on safety at Expo Hire North West, and that's why all of our LPG equipment is regularly serviced and certified by a Gas Safe Engineer.

We can provide certificates of this on request, once hire is booked. Please Note: Our LPG products are supplied with a hose and regulator and connect directly to the LPG bottle by a standard bayonet fitting.

Our drivers cannot attach or set up equipment for you - if you are not comfortable connecting the fittings, we recommend consulting a Gas Safe engineer.

Do I need to clean catering equipment hire before it is returned?

There is no need to be concerned about cleaning catering equipment hire after an event or occasion, even if time and energy are going to be factors during clean up and breakdown. We offer a "send it back dirty" service which means you can leave the scrubbing to us.

We know from experience how catering equipment hire can be hard to clean after a hire period of full usage; barbecues and ovens in particular can get very greasy very quickly. Instead of donning the marigolds, for just 25% of the hire price you can leave all the cleaning to us. Select the "send it back dirty" service in the checkout, wipe off any food debris or liquid before collection and we’ll sort the rest.
