What is tableware and service hire?

In this category you will find a variety of products.

We have a variety of wicker baskets in various sizes for serving fruit and bread. There are small baskets for individual service along with larger baskets for tables and buffets.

If you are serving vegetables as part of a buffet service, our divided and undivided vegetable dishes are perfect. These are often used in the centre of a table so guests can help themselves to portions of veg.

We also stock things such as serving salvers and table vases to add those extra touches to your function or banquet.

Do I need to worry about cleaning tableware hire?

The last thing anyone wants to think about after a big event is cleaning everything up. It's not just a chore either; unfortunately it's during cleaning when most tableware and serving hire gets lost.

This is the main reason why we have made it mandatory for all tableware and serving items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. This means rather than breaking out the marigolds, all you need to do is make sure there is no attached food debris before packing ready for collection. We'll do the rest.

How does delivery of tableware and service hire work?

All of our products are cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. We pack our tableware and service equipment into specialised boxes, complete with bubble wrap to ensure that they arrive with you in the best condition possible.

It’s easy to find out the cost of getting your event hire delivered and collected from us. Simply tap the Expo Hire Chiltern logo from any page to be taken to the homepage, where you will find the carriage calculator button. Enter your postcode to not only find the carriage charge to that postcode, but to check which of our websites is based closest so you don’t pay more than you have to.

You can also see what extra charges your order might incur on that page. This is all calculated in the checkout; once you have confirmed your delivery address and dates of delivery and collection, if any are applicable these will be itemised for you before you pay so that there are no hidden surprises.

Want to know when your delivery is coming? You can track your driver using our real time maps on the day of delivery and collection. Simply tap the link in the automated text we send you and you can find out where they are - no need to call for updates.
