Use our "send it back dirty" service instead of worrying about cleaning hot plate hire
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.

No. As we are an online-only you can view all of our products on our website. To keep our prices as low as posssible our warehouses are not open to the public.

It is vitally important to check power requirements prior to
ordering. Many high powered electrical items such as ovens and patio
heaters require a large amount of power to run and can cause
problems if being run off extension cables or using temporary power
supplies such as generators.
