Service very good - especially response time and ability to match a lower quote we had received. Would recommend AVE to others.
Easy to deal with and took all the stress out of hiring a stage for the first time. Would use again and would certainly recommend!
I have to thank the team at AVE Hire, they were superb. We had a last minute requirement as our own system failed the day before we were due to hold a large party and they were able to advise and deliver at a very competitive price. Bart, our set up engineer, was really friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend and will definitely use the service again.
We are very much impressed by service in the office Anna over the phone and delivery time as well as the sound engineers.
Thank you for the prompt manner in which our urgent requirement for staging was dealt with. We were very impressed with the speedy and thorough way in which we could put arrangements in place at very short notice and by the excellent communications throughout our dealing with you. The staging product was exactly what we wanted and was swiftly erected on our behalf. We are most grateful to you for providing an excellent service!
Hi there. Thank you very much for your service last weekend very good from the minute I got in touch with you until the moment I got all the material for the gig everything was 5. For sure I will be back again and recommend to all. Thanks again for the great service.
Had prompt replies, booking was easy, delivery staff efficient and very friendly. Couldn't be more satisfied!
Thanks to Bart for supporting the event last night and having a great client facing manner! Great guy and skilled technician, also Anna for crazy speedy response timings. We'd certainly use AVE hire again!
This was the first time we'd used you for lighting hire and I found the quoting and installation process very straight forward and your team incredibly helpful. I think next time I would like you to be more involved in the decisions as to what lights to use in the space - the fact this didn't happen is purely down to us calling you so last minute. I'd like to involve you earlier next time as all the advice we received was great!
The whole process of hiring the sound and light equipment was so easy. The customer service is excellent, as was the delivery where they came up and installed all the equipment on Saturday afternoon and picked it up again on Sunday. I will use the next time I need to hire.
The engineer was amazing, everything was done perfectly and couldn't have asked for a better service.
Everything from the customers service, price, installation and lighting effect was on point. I would highly recommend them for your events as they were brilliant. I have already recommended them and will be using them again. Keep up the good work!
Very good service and communication for a relatively short notice booking. Martyna and Bart were very helpful in their respective roles. The event was a success and the booth and mic added to the visual and sound experience. Would use AVE again for sure.
I had a last minute request for a stage for a panel event and Ave Hire responded immediately. The ordering process was extremely easy and the delivery times were exactly as we had discussed. The engineer was extremely efficient, friendly and professional. I would highly recommend AVE for equipment hire.
The service I received from AVE hire was exceptional from start to finish. Nothing was too much for Anna, the sales representative, who rapidly dealt with our specific requests with competence and professionalism. The equipment arrived on time and functioned perfectly, set up and take down was quick and efficient. We wouldn't hesitate to use AVE hire again and recommend their services unreservedly.
Thanks very much for providing the sound and lighting for our NY party. The team were all great and easy to deal with, including delivery and pickup of equipment. Thanks again.
It was incredibly easy to book - Anna was helpful. Prices were very reasonable and setup of lights went very smoothly. Very good service all round.
Anna was excellent in answering my many questions about my event before-hand. Always getting back to me quickly and putting my mind at rest. I appreciated the fact that they accommodated my request to help me with technical issues and set-up from another supplier I was using for the same event also. Bart was superb on the night, ensuring everything ran smoothly which is just what I wished for. It's the second time I've used ave hire and definitely will do so again. They provide a great service which I would recommend to anyone. Thank you to you both for making my event a success!
Bart and Anna are an unstoppable force, they are always helpful, efficient and I would recommend them time and time again.
The team is very friendly and helpful. They responded very promptly to ever request I had and the delivery team was friendly.
First time using AVE Hire and from start to finish, the service was excellent - Bart who delivered and installed was brilliant. This was our first big event of our new events calendar and I will definitely use AVEHire for or next event - thanks to the team there and I will be in touch again soon!
We could not have asked for better service. Great value, and the people make the experience all the more enjoyable. Professionalism is faultless and there are never any technical problems.
We needed some last minute kit for a video shoot and our usual supplier were unable to provide. I took a punt on AVE hire having never used or heard of them but needing kit delivered within 12 hours. Martyna was extremely helpful on the phone and stayed late to complete my order and then kit was delivered on time, setup and packed down v efficiently. The kit itself was of a v high quality as was the service. We'll definitely be using AVE again.
The office/sales team could not be more accommodating. The engineer maintained contact at all times, arrived on time, set-up all the equipment with the greatest of care for the location, for which the Portuguese Embassy also appreciated. The visuals were perfect, and I could not have asked for more. On the phone all members of the team were so pleasant to speak with, and a friendly experience. I would gladly recommend to other professionals, we will definitely use the company again and the Portuguese Embassy has requested your details and I have confirmed that I personally recommend your company. I was asked how I found you, and they were impressed. I can only thank you all for your professionalism, efficiency and overall cheerful disposition.
Everything was perfect, arrived in time, worked well and the engineer who delivered was very nice :) The fire alarm did turn on in the end from the the smoke machine but we made a huge smoke and forgot to cover the alarm on the corridor, and the smoke went out eventually, so not really the machines' fault. Thanks for everything.
Everyone at AVE hire was very helpful from Anna in sales to Bart who came down for the day. We were very pleased with the job and would definitely use AVE hire again. Many thanks.
Very timely and transparent pre / post sales service. Delivery driver attended to promptly replace non functioning cable
This was a very easy and helpful process from beginning to end. The sales team were incredibly professional and responsive. And Tom, the engineer was a legend. Really helpful and efficient. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to any of my friends. A brilliant, professional and smooth experience.
We had a great first experience working with AVE Hire. We needed advice about lighting for a daytime event within our budget and were guided efficiently and clearly by the sales team. The technician arrived at the event exactly when requested and waited patiently for us to arrive as we were running a bit behind schedule. Once we met up the technician worked independently to set up the lights, which were positioned thoughtfully and worked perfectly. At the end of the event the technician arrived right on time, and quietly and efficiently packed everything away. Couldn't have gone better! My only advice would be to add some videos to the website showing the different lights "in action" as novices may not be able to visualize fully how they work, despite the good descriptions on the website.
I needed a quote & subsequent order in a short time frame. I spoke to Anna over the phone who took all my details & within minutes had the quote emailed to me. I had a few questions & Anna was incredibly responsive on each occasion. The delivery & collection times were very flexible & the product fit the bill. Overall, an excellent customer experience & I will be happy to use AVE again & recommend to my colleagues.
When another hire company let us down, it was great how quickly and effectively you were able to help us out. Our Sixth Form Prom was a real success and it's partly down to you! Thanks so much!
Great service, the team went above and beyond to make sure my last minute requirements could be met. I will definitely use again.
Both Anna from the Sales Team and Bart the Engineer were exceptionally professional, helpful to no end and very pleasant to work with...would 100% work with your company again! Thank you for everything.
Very impressed. Your engineer was pleasant polite and clearly very good at his job as the sound was perfect! Many thanks.
Everything was delivered and setup perfectly and on time. The Swedish Chamber of Commerce hosted a successful event thanks to AVE Hire.
It is an absolute pleasure working with Tucado Music (Former name of AVE Hire). Since 3 years they are delivering all the sound and lightning equipment for our IP Week event in February. The communication upfront runs very smoothly and delivery and set up
...They were very helpful, friendly, polite, and quick at setting up the equipment. All the equipment worked well and everyone at the party was really impressed by the sound and the way it looked. Thanks for making our Christmas party excellent!
We always use AVE Hire here at The Albion. They're super flexible and provide a great service. They have definitely started many great parties!!
They are the best in town I will always use them for my event thank you Tucado Music (Former name of AVE Hire)
Chris and the team were fantastic and provide a quick and hassle free service, all within my budget. Thanks a million.
We booked an old church hall for our wedding and after cleaning up the place, we realised that something was missing but we went with it. A week before the event, we realised that we required specialised lighting to actually make the hall special. We were
I Found Tucado (Former name of AVE Hire) on google. From the start I found them very easy to deal with,and really good prices and equipment too.They delivered,set up and picked up on time and the PA was fantastic,easy to use and loud! I would HIGHLY RECOM
A fantastic service . Start to finish . Thoroughly professional and helpful . Delivery and collection on time . Set up perfect . Thank you all very much . Will always pass your details on to friends and clients . Best .
Everything bout my hire was made easy. The guys who came to install were super friendly, helpful and happy. I needed some equipment (connector) and they let me borrow for free. I would recommend your company to anyone.
Fantastic, friendly service at a great price. Would definitely recommend them and would use them again in the future.
Absolutely high class. Bart was tip top delivered at 1pm on the dot and came the next day when I was very hungover and helped me unpack and put the speakers in the van. Next party I am 100% using AVE. Very affordable and much better service.
The service that we received was very good and we would recommend your company to anyone else looking for this service. Thank you.
The guys from AVE-hire were absolutely great. They delivered the lighting and sound equipment on time and also took them down as required. The prices offered were the best we came across and at the time of the event, we realised we didn't have the require
Very friendly and helpful sales staff and crew. Their flexibility and non-burocratic approach made it really easy for us to have a last minute fabulous wedding party. Thank you!
very impressed with AVE hire - turned up when they said and set up very quickly. take-down/ pick up was also all on time. the guys were very friendly and personable.
From start to finish the service provided was of excellent standard. From getting a quote to the prompt delivery and pick up. The staff are all very pleasant. Will most definitely be using them again.
Really good sales team with fantastic communication from Peter. Set up our wedding event in time and super professional. Pricing was excellent too; would strongly recommend to others! Thank you for the fantastic service.
I rang up 2 days before my wedding to book the music speakers. The customer service was excellent and gave me great advice on what would be the best for our wedding. The speakers were delivered and set up on time and could not have been easier to use. Thank you for making the whole process totally stress free and easy :)
You guys are fantastic - helpful, friendly, flexible, professional, wonderful. I will use you and recommend you every time in the future.
The Ave Hire team were very helpful and professional throughout; from discussing my order at the beginning to the final collection at the end of the evening. Pete and Bart provided excellent service. I would definitely use this company again and recommend them to others. Very punctual and user friendly.
I just want to say a huge thank you for helping make my 30th Birthday Party go so smoothly. From ordering the items and putting in a last minute request for a microphone the sales process was really smooth. I also want to add that the Engineer Bart was an absolute pleasure to deal with.
I chose AVE hire because of the quality of their equipment and the price which excellent compared to other music hire company's I had been looking at . They gave me good advise with regards to the equipment I would need because of the size of the room. The delivery of my equipment was spot on time . The engineer sent up the equipment then checked it then showed me how to use it . I would fully recommend using AVE Audio Visual equipment hire
Amazing value for money service delivered promptly and in accordance to the itenary of the event. It was great that the delivery was by audio professionals who handled the setup and showed their expertise through recommendations. The overall experience meant we could rely on them and focus our efforts on other aspects of the event. Highly recommended and I will now leave all my event audio visual requirements in their hands from now on. I would definitely say I have unearthed a gem.
Used Ave-hire for a high profile launch event and was extremely impressed with the professionalism and helpfulness of the technician as well as the level of service received pre and post event. We will definitely be using them again
We needed a PA and light system for our daughter's wedding. Anna at AVE Hire was very helpful discussing our needs and arranging the hire. The equipment was great and perfect for what we wanted, set up was ready on the big day at the time agreed and collected spot on time at the end of the day. Really pleasant engineers. Faultless service.
We have found the service to be of the highest standard. Anna has been very helpful and did provide a very efficient customer service. We will continue to use Ava Hire Limited as the quality and service are first class
This was the easiest rental ever. Bart was fantastic setting it up and arriving just after the party to collect it. I was totally satisfied and would not look elsewhere if I needed a sound system again.
As I'd never used your company before, I was a little apprehensive at first. But from my first call to Anna to the call from the engineer Bart, I felt a little at ease at every stage. Anna called the venue herself to arrange an earlier delivery, that was impressive. Then she sent me details of the engineer, who called me early in the morning to let me know that all is well. On the day itself, the equipment worked perfectly.
Thank you Anna and Bart, you guys are great. I would recommend you to anyone who doesn't want all the hustle of messing around with AV etc.
Very nice service, emails were replied very quickly even though I sent multiple, every question was answered promptly. Sign off at midnight the day before and everything still went smoothly. Thanks
Anna was very helpful and friendly making our booking, and Bart, who delivered and collected our equipment was excellent. Everything arrived on time and was set up and tested before he left. We were given his mobile to contact him in the event of any difficulties later on. We will definitely be using your services in the future. Many thanks.
The service from both engineers and office staff have been really great - and the price very keen, as I had previously booked a PA but the price was the same without delivery and engineer set up, so a win win for me!
Quick, efficient and friendly service! Always help us out by catering to our every need and would highly recommend to anyone!
From the lovely and easy to talk to Anna and the super professional Bart I thought the whole service was easy to use and excellent Bart went out of his way to please regardless of the convenience to himself No hesitation in recommending to friends.
The sales team were very helpful and the engineer was great and did not leave until all the equipment was set up perfectly.
Just wanted to say how fantastic your service has been. Bart was great. Extremely efficient, punctual and very professional. Our evening was a great success thanks to your service. Very much appreciated and we will highly recommend you in the future.
Came across Ave Hire by chance on the Internet and were impressed by their prices but even more impressed by how easy the whole ordering process was. Great friendly help when we needed it.
AVE Hire were excellent across the board. Completely reliable, great customer service and great kit as well. They picked up the kit right after the event so there was no need for us to pack and store it. I would use AVE hire again and recommend them to others without hesitation. Thanks so much guys. You helped our wedding run without a hitch!
I think Anna was very helpful and made renting and making sure that the engineer was on time was excellent
Both Anna and Bart delivered a truly professional service from quote to installation. I would have no problem in recommending AVE hire to my colleges and using them again for future events. Thank you all.
We used the company the first time in September purely after finding via google search, the quote given was competitive and service good so we retained the company details and used for a second time at the end of November. Anna was prompt with responding to our request and very co-operative with our alterations on dates/timings. We will definitely use AVE hire again in the future
We had to find AV and lighting equipment one week before running a large carol service. AVE gave a quote within ten minutes, a very useful engineer, delivered all the equipment on time as promised, nothing went wrong. We will be using them again
Our engineer was fantastic - kind, calm and easy going. We had a few technical difficulties (not his fault!) and he provided excellent help with sorting this - highly recommended!
AVE Hire provided a prompt and helpful response to someone that did not understand what she really needed! The technician was cheerful and helpful and the total service was excellent.
The whole service from start to finish was superb. Very accommodating for our needs with regards to timings etc. Would defiantly recommend and will certainly be using again. Many thanks to the team.
All the staff at AVE are a massive help and are so friendly. They provide fabulous service and are super efficient. They respond to enquires instantly and always have equipment and staff available for last minute events!
FANTASTIC service from start to finish. Very professional, polite and very easy to work with. We hired a PA system for a very busy expo and it was all set up before we even got there. Highly recommended
The team really got us out of a difficult spot, having a projector delivered within 45 minutes of order. The whole process was really easy and straightforward.
