Cutlery

Choose from a huge range of cutlery hire for your next event or occasion. All of our cutlery hire is expertly cleaned and packed ready for you in Birmingham and the West Midlands.

Cutlery hire is the base of what we do at Expo Hire Birmingham. While cutlery are some of the cheapest products to hire, they’re also vitally important to get right for any event or function.

What kinds of cutlery hire are there?

There are four basic kinds of cutlery hire available.

The most used piece of cutlery is the fork. Forks can be used for all kinds of food and come in table and dessert varieties.

The knife is another important piece of cutlery, and like the fork comes in dessert and table varieties. There are also specialised knives for things like carving, cheese and wedding cakes.

The humble spoon comes in three main varieties depending on what kind of food they are to be used for. The soup spoon is the rounder version, while the dessert spoon is more oval and the tea spoon has a smaller bowl. There are also serving spoons available for buffets and serving.

The fourth kind are tongs, which can be used for serving all kinds of food and food products. These can be made of either plastic or stainless steel, to fit what they need to be used for.

Does cutlery hire need to be cleaned before it is returned?

One thing we've learned from delivering cutlery hire to Birmingham and the surrounding area is that cutlery most often goes missing while it is being cleaned.

This is why we have had to make it compulsory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. Just ensure all food debris is scraped off cutlery before repacking for collection and we'll do the rest.

How does delivery of cutlery hire work?

All of our cutlery hire is cleaned and checked prior to being banded and bagged ready for dispatch. For larger events we recommend ordering a few extra pieces to cover unexpected issues.
