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?

At Expo Hire Chiltern, we specialise in the supply and hire of LPG equipment for events and exhibitions throughout the Milton Keynes and Northampton area.

All LPG equipment is frequently cleaned, inspected and tested by a Gas Safe Engineer. We can provide evidence of this on request, once booking is confirmed.

The gas-powered appliances that we hire are supplied with a hose and regulator, allowing them to connect directly to an LPG bottle via a standard bayonet fitting. Please be aware that our drivers cannot attach or set up equipment for you. If you do not feel comfortable doing this, we recommend consulting a Gas Safe engineer.

We take pride in our products at Expo Hire Chiltern, which is why we inspect, clean and PAT test all of our equipment prior to delivery. Evidence of PAT testing can be also provided. Please Note: All of our electric products are powered by a standard three-pin UK plug. You will need to check your power requirements prior to use to ensure, to ensure they are compatible and will not be overloaded.
