It’s easy to get excited at the thought of throwing an extravagant party for your nearest and dearest. Putting on a fancy outfit and frolicking around with a glass of prosecco in hand sounds like heaven to most of us. However, what we often forget is just how stressful organising such an exciting occasion can be. One way to ease your panic significantly is by choosing to hire garden party equipment as opposed to buying.

Food and Drink

No great British garden party is complete without a barbecue. If you’re looking for a quick and easy way to feed your guests, it’s a no-brainer, a barbecue is an absolute must! But, don’t panic, you don’t need to rush to the shops and splash out on a big, fancy barbecue that you’re only likely to use a few times a year. Instead, you can save yourself a significant amount of money and valuable storage space by hiring equipment for your next outdoor event. 

At PSM, we offer a vast selection of garden party equipment for hire, including a range of high-quality barbecues. So, all you need to do is pop on your apron, grill to your heart's content, and let us take care of the rest.  

When you choose to hire garden party equipment with us, you won’t need to worry about dealing with timely maintenance or a lack of storage space. Instead, you can focus solely on cooking up some delicious food to keep those hungry guests happy! 


How many times have you organised an outdoor event, woken up on the day, opened the curtains and realised you’ve got two options - wack on the waterproofs or cancel, again? It’s no secret that the weather in the UK can be unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean you need to instantly shut down your garden party plans.

Whether you’re hosting in the middle of a heatwave or find yourself caught in an April shower, marquees are an essential piece of garden party equipment to add to your list. As much as you might keep your fingers crossed for cool, warm weather, hiring a marquee will give you peace of mind that you’re prepared for just about anything Mother Nature has to throw at you. At PSM, we stock a range of Marquees for hire in multiple sizes, from 3mx3m to 3mx4.5m. If you’d like to find out more about our garden party equipment hire services, call us now!


If you’re looking to turn your garden party into a relaxed, laid-back affair, high-quality tables and chairs are a must. Sturdy, durable furniture can be pricy, especially if you’re planning to host a large number of family and friends. When you choose to hire garden party equipment, you’ll have much more freedom when it comes to creating an environment you’re truly happy with. 

At PSM Hire, our Folding Tables are quick and easy to erect. This allows you to order as many as you think you might need and neatly store away those you don’t end up using on the day. Also, our Stacking Chairs are strong, durable, safe and in excellent condition. If you’d like to find out more about our garden party equipment hire services, including our outdoor furniture, please do get in touch today.
