Making the most of your kitchen space is important if you are to run an efficient operation. Our collection of storage hire and preparation hire has been designed to help you do just that.

How can I get the most from storage and prep hire?

In a small kitchen, it’s important to make use of every inch of space possible, particularly if you expect to be busy. Our wire shelving for hire is perfect to help create storage space which makes use of vertical space as well as horizontal, offering you a smaller footprint for a wider range of things.

Our preparation tables come with and without splashbacks and are perfect for setting up a kitchen quickly to prepare and cook food. We also have racking and jackstacks available for storage of trays and plates once prepared.

Do I need to clean storage and prep hire before it is returned?

Are you concerned about cleaning your catering equipment hire after using it at your event or occasion? If time is a factor while packing up or you know you’ve got too much else to get done, then you should definitely consider using our send it back dirty service.

Catering equipment hire can be hard to clean after a hire period, especially if it's been in constant usage. Ovens and barbecues in particular can require a good amount of elbow grease to get them clean. Rather than cracking out the scourer, for just 25% of the hire price you can add our "send it back dirty service" in the checkout. Just wipe off any food debris or liquid and we’ll sort the rest.

What do I need to know about delivery of storage and prep hire?

All of our storage hire and prep hire is cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. Some of it can be quite bulky and heavy, so please bear in mind that access is important. This means that products need to be able to fit through doors; that access be flat and without stairs as our drivers aren't allowed to go up or down them.
