Having the right kind of catering equipment is vital if you're cooking outdoors at your event or occasion, and we're here to make it easy for you to find what you need.

What do I need to know before I order Outdoor Catering Hire

The most important thing a customer needs to know is their power requirements. Outdoor cooking equipment often needs a great deal of power, and while electric ovens and cookers do a good job inside, they're not designed to work on either generators or extension leads. We recommend using LPG powered equipment when cooking outside, as LPG offers much more power and is designed to be used outdoors.

However, we do have some outdoor catering hire products that are electrical like our hot dog steamer and popcorn cart. We reccommend checking what power output you have available before hiring as it's possible these can trip a supply that isn't set up to handle it.

What about delivery of Outdoor Catering Hire?

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.

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.
