Hosting an event, especially for large numbers of people, often means considering what your best options are for furniture, catering equipment, marquees, AV equipment and more. Some things, like food and wine, you will have to buy.

However, you might be surprised about how much you can hire. Barlens offers a wide range of hire items to suit any event.

Here are five reasons why you should hire, not buy, for your next event:

1. It’s cheaper
Unless you’re the type of person who hosts a massive event weekly, it’s simply not cost effective to buy a marquee and a shed full of chairs. Hiring what you need works out to be considerably cheaper than buying.

2. Someone else will do the washing up
When you hire your catering equipment from Barlens, we include the cleaning of everything at the end of the night. That’s right, no need to waste hours washing up plates, cutlery, champagne flutes and more – we will do it all for you!

3. You don’t need to worry about storage
You know what takes up a lot of space? 300 chairs. Even 20 chairs take up a lot of space. When you hire, you will only have the furniture on the day you need it, leaving the storage up to us.

4. Someone else will do the heavy lifting

Depending on the size of your event, Barlens can provide event and operations consultants that will deliver your items to you.  This saves your back and the amount of time you need to prepare on the day.

5. Free site inspections are included
When you hire from Barlens, we can provide a free site inspection for your event. This means we establish the best location, size and cost for a marquee at your event.
