On behalf of the Burgesses & my fellow Members of Council of the London Borough of Harrow may I extend my sincere thanks to you and the for devoting so much of your time and hard work to support the supply and distribution of emergency food aid during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Walk In Fridge Trailer Hire Covid-19 CoronaVirus Emergency

Week 51 - Our Fridge Engineer Shawn is replacing a Humbaur fridge unit with an uprated FTM16 Rivercold Monoblock.

The new Rivacold unit can chill down 16,000 litres of fridge space to -5C / +5C

Our fridge department has a fleet of freezer and fridge trailers for hire. Rented chiller trailers are leaving soon to support Covid-19 CoronaVirus hotspot locations around the UK.

With constant door opening and the summer coming up we needed to make sure the fridge unit would cope.

Our thanks to Parker Steel for urgently supplying stainless steel angle needed to enlarge the receiving aperture for the new chiller unit.

Storm Ciara 93mph takes down power lines

Sunday 09.34hrs we received a call from a local venue asking if we would be able to attend their venue with a 100kva generator to power up their 38 bedroom venue and catering kitchen. The venue had 200 guests for their wedding breakfast and entertainment thereafter.

Sunday 09.47hrs the venue manager confirmed that there was a 3 x 100amp 380v - 400v supply powering up the venue. The kitchen was mostly gas appliance 4 x Rational ovens and various gas fryers which would all be unusable if the power went down, due to the gas interlock shutting down under a power failure.

Sunday 13.36hrs the phone rang again, the power was still on, the wedding breakfast was almost finished. We stood down our electrical engineer from emergency status to standby.

Kitchen Hire Emergency

22.30hrs we received an emergency call from a restaurant who had just run out of LPG gas from their commercial underground gas tank. We discussed the logistics of supplying one of our emergency Rational 101E hire ovens or a Rational 101G hire oven working off a couple of 19Kg Calor gas bottles. Our client had 350 guests in for Christmas lunch and dinner (£45 per head) the following day and no way fulfilling his pre-booked orders. Our on call emergency help line organised one of our Rational trained engineers to prepare and install two 10 rack Rational 101G ovens ready for 08.00hrs he following day.

Hillsong Christmas Carol Service Wembley

Our client was running outside catering units and needed a Ultra Silent generator hire solution for Hillsong Christmas Carol Service.

We supplied a 40kva generator with 3 phase and single phase outputs.

Our client specified smoke free generator from our whisper quiet generator hire fleet.

Delivery was made to Wembley Arena for 07,00hrs and collection was 23.00hrs when the generator hire terminated.

Bonfire Night - Tower Lights TL90 Hire

With Guy Fawkes night around the corner we brought our TL90 Tower lights into our workshop for an early makeover and spruce up. As the TL90 Tower lights stay outside 24/7 365 days a week we must treat them with the care and attention required for them to return back a good and reliable service. Notwithstanding the above, today we recieved an urgent call for a 20 week tower light hire to light a football pitch at a school in Croydon. Our engineers and technicians worked hard to get the TL90 Tower Lights reasembles after a full stripdown and over haul , ready for delivery the following day.

Oktoberfest Beer Festival - London

Oktoberfest events run from all over the country 3rd October to 16th November. Due to popular demand we have just accepted delivery of additional, traditional, genuine, Octoberfest beer hire benches, hire tables and hire Stein glasses.

We serve several clients in and around the UK. London Oktoberfest events keep us busy.

We also supply Stein Glass hire in racks of 9 glasses making the glasses easy to stack and store at the event and on return. Historically some clients overlook that each glass has to be washed up one at a time by hand, dried and stored back in their original boxes.

Tickets are still on sale for the Bavarian beer festival events if you are quick !
