About The Hire Store

Formerly known as Chefs Hire, The Hire Store first opened in 1986 on Blenheim Road to service the Christchurch and Canterbury market.

Originally selling and hiring equipment, the business developed over time to specialise in the South Island’s widest range of commercial catering hire equipment and portable kitchens.

A fleet of caravan style mobile kitchens was developed meaning great tasting meals could leave the confines of a restaurant and be served anywhere. These have continued to be developed over the years, and The Hire Store offers a range of modern, mobile catering hire options.

After more than 40 years of operation, the business was purchased by the current owners and renamed ‘The Hire Store’. The Hire Store continues to offer the same dedicated service and commitment to excellence to our customers.
