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?

All of the gas equipment for events that we hire are regularly cleaned, serviced and certified by a Gas Safe Engineer (evidence of this can be provided on request on booking completion).

All of our gas products are supplied with a hose and regulator, which attach directly to an LPG bottle via a standard bayonet fitting.

Please be aware that our drivers cannot attach or set up equipment for you. If you are not comfortable attaching the regulator to the bottle, we advise that you consult a Gas Safe engineer.

When ordering from Expo Hire Cotswold, you can rest assured that all of our equipment is cleaned, inspected and PAT tested prior to delivery. We can provide evidence of this prior to delivery if required. All of our electric products are powered by a standard three-pin UK plug. You'll need to check your power requirements before using, them to ensure compatibility.
