Catering Equipment Hire


Caterbirds Caterhire was started with the aim to supply individuals and catering businesses in the Dumfries and Galloway, Scottish Borders, Cumbria and Northumberland with a reliable and quality hire service, and help with the hassle-free organising of any event, big or small, in the South of Scotland and the North of England.

With our experience in the business of catering and events, we are able to advise customers on a series of matters, and we understand better than many of our hiring competitors what is needed on the actual day, and how important it is to have good quality product and a 100% customer focused service.

At Caterbirds Caterhire we understand the amount of work and stress levels that any event preparation requires, and we aim to provide a service that will ease those, by closely working with our customers and trying to be as flexible as possible to adapt to our customers’ requirements. Once the event has past, will take everything unwashed, which I am sure all business and individual customers will appreciate, takes a whole lot of work from any event. Everything gets washed, sanitized and packed away on our premises, spotlessly clean, and ready for the next hire!
