The Ultimate Event Hiring Checklist!

We know that when it comes time to start listing all your needs for your 250-guest event, items can fall off. It’s not intentional, obviously, but wouldn’t it be nice if someone just had a list laying around of all the things you need to rent for your event?

Well, you’re welcome, because we created one just for you!

Hire A Marquee Tent
It should go without saying, any event with 100 people or more needs a marquee tent. So, now the only thing you need to decide is whether you’d prefer a peg and pole or aluminium framed marquee tent.

If there is a hard surface with an amazing view, we’d suggest renting the aluminium framed tent.

Hire Chairs
While you might have heard or read, the “party advice” that you should always have fewer chairs than guests, that’s incorrect!

Everyone needs a chair, so make sure that your guests RSVP in time, and that you hire a few more chairs than attendees.

Hire Tables and Counters
No matter what type of event you’re hosting, there’s always a need for a table, bar counter, or trellis table. Luckily for you, we stock everything from cocktail furniture to Beerfest tables and benches.

Hire Flooring
It is a given that all walking and dancing surfaces should be “event footwear” friendly. After all, if there are no solid surfaces placed over grass, half your guest’s high heels will get stuck and muddy!

Hire Bins
If there isn’t a place for rubbish, then it’s bound to land up everywhere! Make sure to hire enough bins to place around the venue. This also includes ashtrays. There’s nothing worse than cleaning up stompies.

Hire Rent Heating And Shade
Depending on the season, you’ll need to hire something to help regulate temperature. To be frank, heaters and shade should be included all year round. While there can be balmy nights every so often, most evenings are chilly.

And there’s always a human need for shelter, even if it’s sitting under an umbrella at night.

Hire Catering Equipment
Yes, if you are planning on serving food at your event you need catering equipment. Whether you’re looking at just providing guests with pies or are preparing a spit braai, we have the exact solution you need.

Hire Cutlery, Crockery, And Glassware
There’s no such thing as an event without cutlery, crockery, and glassware. Even if it is a bring and braai.

Luckily, once again, we have everything you could possibly need.

Hire Toilets
It’s only natural that your guests will want access to toilets. Make sure that you hire enough as nothing ruins an event quicker than a queue to take care of business.
