Where to start with outdoor chair hire?

Before you seek out the services of an outdoor chair hire business, you will need to decide on the theme and purpose for your event, this will give you an idea of what type of seating you will require. After all you won't use deck chairs for a banquet setting or fold away chairs at a high class cocktail party.

Once you have decided on the theme, you should consider the amount of guests you will need to cater for.

Once you have considered all aspects of the seating requirements you can begin your search for the ideal outdoor chair hire company. The best place to start your hunt is the internet, but you could also use other resources like your local newspapers and local classifieds.

What types of chairs are best for outdoor functions?

If you are throwing an out door function underneath a marquis tent, then you could use any chair you desire, but for a true outdoor function, you will need seating that is tough, water resistant and will not be damaged by exposure to sunlight. The following are a few options.

  • Wooden deck chairs with canvas or vinyl seats and backing, these chairs are light weight, yet very tough, you could use them for anything, from sport events to outdoor weddings.
  • Outdoor wicker banqueting chairs and other wicker furniture. Wicker furniture is tough yet elegant, cushioning for the seats can be interchanged, thus allowing you greater flexibility when deciding a colour theme.
  • Plastic garden and bistro chairs, Sturdy and versatile, these seats are the best option for those working on a budget, with the use of chair covers; you can still create an elegant atmosphere at a fraction of the price.

You can expect to pay for the daily rental for the chairs and any other décor you decide to use. The price of delivery must be taken into consideration as well as VAT. Prices will vary from business to business, and will also be determined by the type of chair you decide on using.
