WHY HIRE FROM US ?
We are a long established, professional hire company, servicing the live event and celebrations sector. Based in Wakefield, West Yorkshire, within minutes of the M1, we operate throughout the UK. We know what the customer needs for a stress free day. From initial consultation, through to the event itself, we are with you every step of the way. All of our items are delivered, setup, and collected by our staff. If you wish, we can even have a member of staff on site throughout your event,
Alternatively, some of our smaller items are now available on a “self hire” basis, where you collect the goods from us, and return them after the event.
When shopping around with a view to choosing an equipment provider, you will find a whole host of companies offering you their services. These days, DJ’s, marquee companies, florists, and venue dressers all seem to offer star cloths, illuminated letters, uplighters, PA systems, etc. It can be a bit overwhelming! And disappointing.
With more than thirty years experience in the hire sector, we are experts at what we do. We will help you make the right choices, whether over the phone, during a consultation at our premises, or at a site meeting at the venue of your choice. Anyone can purchase décor and props, but having the requisite skills, and consistently applying them, together with attention to detail, to surpass our client’s expectations, is what sets us apart from other hire companies.
Quality isn’t expensive—It’s priceless. You will find that we are very competitive. A guide price is shown for each item to aid with budgeting.
We have many testimonials from past clients, which we are happy to show you. Additionally, we are the preferred suppliers to some of the most prestigious venues in Yorkshire, from small bijou hotels, to grand country houses.
Our Product Range:
We hold a large varied stock of lighting, décor, props, and sound equipment, to cope with any commission, but If you require something not shown please get in touch. Our product range is always expanding and diversifying.
Delivery & Collection:
We deliver and setup your chosen items on the morning of your event, and make sure everything is in order well before your guests are due to arrive. If you have access to your venue the day before, we are happy to install on that day. We return to collect the items early the following morning after the event. If your venue requires the room to be cleared at the end of your celebration, usually around midnight or 1.00am, we can accommodate this, but please let us know at the time of booking. All delivery and collection mileage is charged at 60p per mile travelled.
