Special thanks to Tom and all the team for helping to make my wedding day as perfect as possible."

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to others in the future."

Joel Thorogood - Oxford

"We recently hired a generator for a wedding in central Oxford – the Energy Generator team provided a great unit that was extremely quiet and easy to use, and provided more than enough power for our marquee and bar, caterers, lighting etc. The team were very helpful and friendly, all the equipment arrived exactly on time and was immaculate, and all was collected afterwards as planned. I can highly recommend Energy Generator Hire and my thanks to the team that helped make the wedding such a great day."

A huge thank you to Tom and his team, I can't wait to use them again."

K Quick - East Northamptonshire

"I would just like to thank Tom and his team from Energy Generator Hire. At very short notice they deployed a generator to allow us to complete a project with a very short deadline. With Tom's instruction we had no problems with the generator, it was very simple to use. We did have a little challenge with the plant it was connected to but after a quick call Tom was on site, and even though it was nothing to do with the generator supplied, Tom fixed it. Great service, Great Price."

Steve Hunt - Operations Director, Bio Global Industries

Thanks guys!"

Tom & Daisy, Chesham Wedding

"Tom and his team recently provided power to our outdoor wedding. Before the event, he was always available on e-mail and telephone to talk through queries and let us know exactly what we'd need. The set up and the take down was performed in a highly professional manner, with even more sockets provided than we had been asked for (just in case - and it turned out we did need them!). The generator itself, all the distro-boxes and the wiring was all spotlessly clean. It is obvious that they really look after all their equipment. We would not hesitate to use Tom and his team again and will definitely be recommending them to friends."

Alex Keysmith, Woodland Wedding

"I would like to thank you for your part in helping to make our party such a success. Your service was excellent, timely and generous. The generator performed perfectly and it was a great comfort to know that you were around in case of problems. Thank you for the extra help you gave to us during the evening which was most appreciated. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends in the future."

Susannah Sykes, Buckingham

"We searched for months to find a company who would provide a generator for our wedding in June 2015, the amount of hassle we went through just to find out the horrendous costs was so stressful until we found Energy Generator Hire. The service we received was second to none and we are most grateful as it played a huge part in making our wedding day perfect! Tom went above and beyond to make sure we were happy with everything and the cost of fuel was a lot less than we had been quoted elsewhere, was a great pleasure to work with this company. Would definitely recommend and use again if needed."

Mr & Mrs Rees, Luton

Thank you for helping us!"

Funky Tents, Leicestershire

"This is the first year that we have contracted with Energy Generator Hire Ltd to supply generators for our annual carnival event.
