Commercial Catering Equipment Hire For Large Venues

As a leading catering equipment hire company in the UK, we understand that planning an event can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to ensuring that you have all the equipment you need. That’s why we’ve put together this blog to help you understand what you need to consider when hiring catering equipment for large venues. 

Considerations for large venues  

Large venues can present a unique set of challenges when it comes to catering equipment hire. Before hiring equipment, it’s important to consider the venue's size and layout, as well as the number of guests you will be catering for. This will help you determine what equipment you need and how much of it you need to hire. 

The benefit of hiring all equipment from the same place  

One of the biggest benefits of hiring all your catering equipment from the same place is that you only have one point of contact. This means that you don’t have to deal with multiple suppliers, which can be time-consuming and confusing. By hiring all your equipment from one place, you can ensure that everything arrives at the same time, making the setup process much easier. 

Calculating capacity for refrigeration/ovens/storage units  

When it comes to hiring catering equipment for large venues, it’s important to consider the capacity of the equipment you are hiring. For example, if you're catering for 500 people, you'll need to ensure that you have enough refrigeration units to store all the food and drinks. Similarly, you'll need to calculate the capacity of your ovens and storing units to ensure that you can keep up with the demand. 

Power in the venue  

Another important consideration when hiring catering equipment for large venues is the power supply. It’s important to check the power supply at the venue to ensure that it can handle the load of your equipment. You don’t want to be in the middle of an event and have a power outage because you didn’t check the power supply beforehand. It’s why you need to have your lightbulb moment! 

Trust in Catering Equipment Hire Partners 

When it comes to hiring catering equipment for large venues, it’s important to have trust in your catering equipment hire partners. You want to ensure that they will deliver the equipment on time, that it will be of high quality, and that they will be able to provide support throughout the event.
