There is no doubt that the quality of your tableware is an important factor that you need to consider for your big event catering occasion. Tableware is not something that your guests will see from afar – it is something that they will be activity using at the tables, and so there is no excuse for poor quality.

There are a number of glassware hire companies in the market, though not all of them will be able to supply glassware hire in the quantities that are often needed for major event catering. That aside, though, here are some things to look for when making your decision as to where to source the best glassware hire for events from.


We’ve already mentioned this. Lipstick marks, dirty or dusty glassware or scratched glassware simply gives the wrong impression, and certainly not the impression that you want to portray to your VIP guests. Work with a company who thorough cleans and checks its glassware before sending to you.


Again, we’ve touched on this already, but you want to make sure you are sourcing your glassware rental products (and other tableware) from a company that has them available in large quantities, as we’re pretty sure that you will want matching glassware to complete your table settings?

Range of glassware hire

It’s definitely not the case that one type of glassware fits every event, and with the competition in today’s market, you can source pretty much anything and everything. OK, so coloured glassware, for instance, does cost a little more in terms of hire price per item, but it certainly adds to the overall effect. The event glassware rental company you choose should have the whole range available, at different price points, to suit all tastes…and budgets.


This might sound obvious, but check that your glassware rental company can service your location. Better still if they have a ‘local’ hub. Put simply, the further away the company from your venue, the more the transport charges might be, if applicable.


And last, but by no means least, the service. None of the above is any good if the service levels aren’t there. The lead up to a busy, major event is stressful enough without having to worry about whether your glassware is going to arrive. Work with a reliable company – this is worth its weight in gold.
