From conference chairs to tea spoons we have it covered.

From first contact, through to collection of our equipment after your event, our aim is to take the hassle away from you. Whether you need a refrigerated trailer, a full kitchen and crockery or simply some tables and chairs we will work with you to supply whatever equipment is required to make your event a success.
