Linen hire can be a bit scary if you’ve never hired it before, but we have tried to make it as easy as possible for you to find the right colour and size for your needs.

What do I need to know about linen hire?

Most linen hire is measured in inches, so it’s important to measure your tables in that format before choosing what you need. Remember to include a bit for the “drape” between the table-top and the floor – the standard banqueting table is 30 inches tall.

Table linen is either square, rectangular or circular. With most tables it should be intuitive what to choose, but for oval tables we recommend the larger rectangular pieces of linen while smaller circular tables normally have a square tablecloth.

Runners and sashes will add an accent of colour to your table and chairs if you don’t want to go overboard, while napkins make a classy accompaniment.

Does linen hire need to be laundered before it is collected?

Before we send out our linen hire, we ensure it is all professionally laundered and pressed ready for delivery. To do this requires industry-specific machinery, which means we cannot expect our customers to launder linen before we come to collect it.

For this reason, we include the send it back dirty service in our linen hire price. All we ask of our customer is that when readying linen for collection, that it is repacked dry and free of any food debris in the bags that it was shipped in. Linen which is wet or has attached food debris when it is returned is much more likely to be unable to be cleaned, and we have to charge replacement fees for any damaged or destroyed linen.

How does delivery of linen hire work?

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.
