Do I need to clean these items before they are returned from 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.
What do I need to know about delivery of tableware and serving in Milton Keynes and the Chilterns?
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.

What is the price including VAT?
This item is subject to 20% VAT and therefore you will pay
each for a standard 3 day hire at checkout.
As primarily a
business-to-business supplier we advertise our prices ex-VAT as
most businesses will be able to
reclaim the VAT amount.
Do you offer discounts for if the item is hired for less than 3 Days?
No. We recommend a minimum hire period of 3 days to provide
enough time for set-up and break-down of your event, and to make sure that problems such as traffic or
adverse weather conditions do not impact on your event. If you want to hire for a shorter period than this
then we cannot offer a discount.
Do you offer discounts for Long Term Hire?
Yes, after the standard hire perion of 3 Days you will be charged
£1.00 per extra day up to day 7,
£0.75 per extra day up to day 28
and £0.50 per extra day after that.
How much security deposit do you charge?
Nothing! Unlike most of our competitors, rather than charging a large
deposit, we provide a FREE 'minor deposit waiver' scheme to
cover minor damage and loss. Excessive or negligent damage and
loss will be invoiced at 10 times the standard hire price of
the relevant items. Please read our terms and conditions for
How much do you charge for delivery?
There is a minimum charge of £20.00 for a distance up to 10 miles each way.
After that we charge £1.00 per mile each way
and an additional £20.00 for each journey on a weekend or bank holiday.
We calculate the distance using driving directions from our local base to your event postcode, so it is important that you provide the correct delivery address at checkout.
