New level of hire showroom opens in Christchurch
Their showroom covers all event types under one roof: hire equipment for major events, function hire needs and the more finessed requirements for high-end corporate occasions.
Hirepool National Events Manager Greg Cayford says “There’s a big difference between the demands of people organising a party, large event organisers or special event planners.
“People who want to be self-sufficient and can pick out their own items. Our event planners are on hand to assist with advice.
“At the other end of the spectrum, special event organisers appreciate a high-end service that follows through from concept to completion with five star advice and quality equipment.”
“Anyone walking through the doors will find the perfect entertainment solution, regardless of their requirements.”
In August 2016 Hirepool announced the purchase of Continental Event Hire, a premium brand in the special occasions hire market. This has added to the Hirepool customer offering with additional quality equipment options (including more styles of marquee) and considerable expertise in this more service-oriented market.
The new showroom presents a relaxed and comfortable environment for discussing an event, while viewing displays of suggested seating layouts, the latest in table décor trends, service and styling ideas and examples of all the equipment options on offer.
Steering customers in the right direction, if they require it, is Marjorie Jones (with 20 years’ experience in the hire industry) and Raquel Marshall (referred to in-house as the Customer-service Queen). Behind the scenes, at the new Hirepool Events head-office in Rangiora since the merge, the combined force of the former Continental event hire team and Hirepool’s event team is available to also meet with customers in the Blenheim Road showroom, as required.
We now have the most experienced hire team in New Zealand bar none – decades and decades of experience. As we say to our customers, ‘our team, your dream’
Greg Cayford, Hirepool National Events Manager
Several special customer offers are planned for the coming summer months to entice people to come and try out the new event retail experience.
