Choose a local event hire company

This might sound obvious. However, when it comes to equipment hire such as furniture hire, chair hire and so on, it not only makes sense from a convenience point of view, but also makes sense from a financial point of view. The way to find a local event hire company is to put into a Google search something with a geographic pointer – something like “event hire company near me”, “furniture hire supplier close to me”, “rustic wedding furniture hire close to me” or “wedding furniture hire London” or something similar.

Finding a local event hire company means that you will be able to make small changes to your order if you need to as your event date approaches, with the minimum of fuss. Better still, you might even be able to go into their distribution centre to either meet your point of contact in person or have a look around their showroom if they have one.

easyEventhire, for instance, can offer you all this, including a large 2000 sq ft showroom in our Midlands depot where you can browse our latest products up close, which is something that will certainly help you when you are piecing together your event hire requirements list.

Forge a relationship with your chosen hire company

This is easier said than done if your hire is just a one-off. However, if you hire event equipment regularly, then this is something you look to achieve. Try to establish the name of your account manager and build a relationship. Especially with larger companies, it can often be infuriating being passed around from one sales rep to the next.

Go and seeyour preferred event hire company, talk regularly on the phone in the lead up to your event. It’s amazing how fruitful this relationship can become in helping you achieve your event goals. We all need a little bit of help sometimes! Rest assured, however, that by nurturing this relationship, it will enable you to create memorable events and occasions.

Work with a forward-thinking event hire company

In its basic form, an event hire company hires tables and chairs. Of course, it’s much more than this, but in nutshell, this is the traditional view. However, companies who offer the best hire services will be those who go above and beyond ‘the norm’. Yes, they might well hire trestle tables and Chiavari chairs. However, they might also hire ghost chairs, Tolix chairs and other on-trend chair styles. At the same time, they might offer rustic tables, vintage tables and industrial-style scaffold tables, all of which bring something different to the party.

If we are talking about the best hire services, ‘best’ also relates to the quality of the product range that you can choose from. The best event hire companies will provide you with the complete range, catering for all eventualities. easyEventhire, for instance, offers over 70 ranges of tables and chairs, all available in their thousands, so whether you are hiring event equipment for your wedding, a corporate function, exhibition, conference or simply a private party at home, the chances are that we’ll be able to help you.
