Glassware hire is extremely popular with professional event planners and members of the public. Whether you are planning a big gala dinner for hundreds of people, or simply an anniversary party at home for friends and family, you can count on the fact that easyEventhire has it all covered.

So, in today’s article, we thought we’d outline the main questions that we asked across the country when it comes to glassware hire for events. A mini ‘frequently asked questions’ section, if you like, dedicated to glass hire. And, in reality, the hire of wine glasses has never been easier or affordable!

Is it cheaper to buy or hire glassware for my event?

This very much depends upon the quantities you need, and whether you are willing to collect the glassware in person to save transport charges. In the majority of cases, it will make most sense for you to hire rather than buy. You then don’t have the big cost outlay, nor do you have the issue of where to store them afterwards!

Can I collect my glassware hire items?

We’ve touched on this already, but suffice to say that the further away from one of our distribution centres that you are, the more your transport charges will be. The best thing to do is to collect in person, as glassware is not bulky like furniture, and so can often be put into the boot of a car or the back of a van.

How much does it cost if and when I break one?

Any glassware hire company will charge you a replacement fee if you break a glass, and this replacement fee, for easyEventhire, is always outlined on the hire contract prior to the hire.

What condition do they arrive in?

All our glassware, along with other tableware such as cutlery and crockery, is machine washed, thoroughly checked and reliably counted in between hires to ensure that our clients receive table-ready glassware, ready for instant use.

Are glasses available in big quantities?

Yes, we have one of the most comprehensive ranges of glassware hire anywhere in the country. To give you an idea, we have 13,000 water tumblers in 11oz size!

Do they come in protective boxes?

Yes, to protect them during transit, our wine glasses, Champagne flutes and others come in protective crates. The glassware also needs to be returned in these same crates.

Can I send glassware back dirty?

You can, yes, to save yourself a job at the end of your event or if you don’t have access to wash-up facilities. Our return-dirty fee will apply in this case.

Are different ranges available?

Of course! easyEventhire has a number of different ranges at different price points, providing something for every event and budget!

Does glassware come in matching sets?

Yes, typically, ranges of glassware for hire will come in matching sets with a white wine glass, red wine glass and Champagne flute, which match in design but which are obviously different sizes.

How far in advance should I place my order?

At peak times of year, such as in the summer and at Christmas, we would always recommend you ordering as far in advance as possible. After all, it’s always easier to tweak an order nearer the time, rather than leave everything until the last minute.
