I hired China from Derby vintage China hire for my baby shower event. I had an afternoon theme and found them on Google. I email straight away and got a quick response from Steve. He was very helpful in what I wanted. He dropped the China a few days before my event and his lovely parents picked up the day after. Very easy and great service!

They provided tiered cake stands and glass ones for larger cakes plus serving platters and vintage table cloths.
Lots of compliments from the guests.
Friendly efficient service and spotlessly clean too.
Thanks Steve and Judy.

Introduced to Derby Vintage China Hire via our caterer for our Mum-in-law's funeral.

All beautifully packaged for me to collect and even better that I didnt have to wash up the items afterwards.

We wanted to make the event really special in Memory of my Mother-in-law and everyone there commented on how beautiful the china was.

I have no hesitation in recommending Derby Vintage Chna Hire if you want your event just that bit 'more special'
