If you’re looking to save more money on your event hire order, we’ve got some great news for you. After lots of feedback from our customers, we have extended our warehouse opening times. Our central depot on Cato Street North in Nechells is now open Monday to Saturday, 8am to 4pm.
Collecting from us especially is useful in last minute situations
Warehouse collections are a useful way to get event hire, exhibition furniture and catering hire from us, particularly in last minute situations when delivery drivers might be fully booked. While we still need similar notice to ensure availability of stock and time to pick orders as when we deliver, we can often turn around warehouse collection orders very quickly allowing our customers to pick up same day in many cases.
If you would like to collect your next order from our warehouse, simply select the “collect from warehouse” option in the checkout. You will need to place an order on the site prior to collection, and you will need to bring a copy of the order and some photo ID when you arrive.
Important Guidelines for Collecting Event Hire
It’s important when collecting from our warehouse that you follow a couple of simple guidelines.
Firstly, the vehicle you are collecting the hire equipment in needs to be the right size for the task. Dimensions of hire equipment is a definite factor – it’s impossible to fit a 6 foot rectangular banqueting table in a car for instance. However, one dimension that is often overlooked is weight; for example it’s worth bearing in mind that a large order of crockery and cutlery will be fairly heavy and can easily weigh down a car boot.
Secondly, it’s also important to consider your insurance. Once you have collected the items you are liable for any damage to items while they are in transit. Sometimes, car insurance won’t cover this loss so it’s worth checking your policy if you are unsure.
