In addition, we also have a fully licensed mobile bar service through our sister company at www.evolvedbarhire.com. Meaning whatever the event or occasion we can offer a seamless service. So whether it's an 80th Birthday Party and you need a few bits and pieces to make the day pass off smoothly, or you need 120 fridges for a large beer festival, we're the catering and event hire company for you.  


With thousands of different products always in stock at our Birmingham warehouse, we’re sure to have the hire equipment that you need for your next event or special occasion. We’ve featured a few of our wide range of products below to give you just a taste of what we can offer.
