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 !

Marquee Heater Hire

This week we have serviced marquee hire heaters ready for the Beast from the East.

1 kilowatt (Kw) = 3412.142 British Thermal Units (BTU/hr). It is difficult for an event organiser to choose the correct size heater with enough BTU output needed to make a difference. There are a few factors that come into play when sizing a heater. If you are lucky enough to speak to a heater hire adviser from one of our competitors you will quickly realise their lack of knowledge. Too little heat at event causes their guests to feel the need to leave early or go somewhere else warmer !!

Active Carbon Extraction Canopy Hire

Our client is a well-known Global online market place requiring a Temporary Event Kitchen with a bespoke extraction and odour filter in the heart of London. Their pop up event space was close to office and residential properties. Our client asked us to design a bespoke extraction solution for hire over a 7 day period which gave their chefs freedom to demonstrate various culinary delights over a 14 hour continuous working day without smells or smoke affecting their office and domestic neighbours. We set to work and designed a kit form extraction canopy, fan, fans speed controller, active carbon filters and a pre-filter grease trap. Each extraction item was easily transported and fitted together on site. We dispatched a two man crew to deliver, install their hired temporary kitchen in just 8 hours:-

Do I need a Back Up or Standby Generator

Many event organisers and wedding clients ask the same question, do I need a backup generator and how much will a backup generator cost ?

Our picture above shows main hire generator 100Kva DCA-125USEI with a back up 100Kva DCA-125ESEI. Our client was a Blue Chip international hotelier hosting an event in Hampshire for worldwide GMs flown in from world locations. Naturally the standby backup wasn’t needed.

The answer to the question is not as simple as a straight yes or no. I will explain our view and you can make your decision based on my experience of 18 years in the generator hire business without a single failure during all the events we have attended across the UK.

Most of our competitors would like to be in our position of zero failures. The information herein are Trade Secrets which has put our generator hire Company number one for reliability.
