About us

We are South West Event Hire Ltd, an independently owned company. Over the past 13 years, we have built up a reputation for providing high-quality catering equipment hire. Outstanding customer service to the South West counties from a company that cares about your event.

Our Somerset base was in the Wedding warehouse in Martock, near Yeovil, but unfortunately has closed. I am currently looking for an alternative showroom in Yeovil. However, do not worry we are highly committed to the Somerset area. Our delivery charges will still be based on the distance you are from our Martock base, or the Exeter warehouse, whichever is the closest to you. If you would like to visit us, you will be very welcome, as our doors are always open. Well, Monday to Friday 0800 – 1700, so just give us a call and we will try to help.


Large or Small your Party matters to us

We are experienced in hiring equipment for all sizes of event and any occasion. Working alongside prominent caterers, marquee companies and hotels. Providing anything from china, cutlery and glassware to furniture, linen and kitchen equipment. The team has been carefully selected from both the catering and hire industry to ensure all customers have proficiently looked after. You will always receive a friendly response and detailed information. All staff have the expertise to assist with event consultation. Making recommendations for the type of equipment that you might require to ensure your peace of mind

All equipment is regularly maintained to ensure it is a consistently high standard. We have invested significantly in our warehouse, cleaning and packaging facilities.
