General Hire News



Whether it’s a Wedding, Corporate or Community event, Field Days, Birthday, or Family Reunion, we can help. Why bother out-laying your money on items for a one-off event, and then trying to sell it later on online. We have over 160 items to choose from, audio systems to linen for your trestles tables. If the staff room zip has broken down or you need a pie warmer required for the lunchtime shout at work. Need a chiller trailer or Spit Roast, or maybe a late minute function at short notice which is requiring a couple of hundred coffee mugs or 10 dozen wine glasses, we can help.

Scroll down through the list of extensive items, if it’s not there, then please call us 033088061 as it’s possible we can source it.
