Having the right kind of catering equipment is vital if you're cooking outdoors at your event or occasion, and we're here to make it easy for you to find what you need.

What do I need to know before I order Outdoor Catering Hire

The most important thing a customer needs to know is their power requirements. Outdoor cooking equipment often needs a great deal of power, and while electric ovens and cookers do a good job inside, they're not designed to work on either generators or extension leads. We recommend using LPG powered equipment when cooking outside, as LPG offers much more power and is designed to be used outdoors.

However, we do have some outdoor catering hire products that are electrical like our hot dog steamer and popcorn cart. We reccommend checking what power output you have available before hiring as it's possible these can trip a supply that isn't set up to handle it.

What about delivery of Outdoor Catering Hire?

All our LPG products at Expo Hire Birmingham undergo regular inspection and testing by Gas Safe engineers, meaning we can ensure high standards and safety.

These products come supplied with a hose and regulator, allowing you to connected them directly to a standard bayonet fitting on an LPG bottle.

It should be noted that our delivery team are unable to connect or set up equipment for you. If you need support with this, we recommend consulting a Gas Safe engineer.

At Expo Hire Birmingham, we pride ourselves on high standards. That's why we thoroughly clean, check and PAT test our electrical appliances prior to delivery. All equipment is supplied with a 3 pin UK plug, meaning it's widely compatible in all venues. Please Note: You may need to check your venue's wiring does not become overloaded. We can also provide proof of PAT testing should you require it.
