If you?re planning an outdoor event, it?s likely that you?re going to need power. Hiring generators for events is the perfect way to supply power to lights, DJ equipment, fridges or anything else that needs electricity.

If it?s a one off event then event generator rental makes much more sense than buying one. But do you know what you need to consider when Googling ?generator hire near me??

Here are a few key considerations:


Firstly, you need to know exactly what the generator will be powering in order to determine the size you require. The more appliances you?re planning on powering, the bigger the generator you?ll need.

A little tip: you should always rent a generator slightly bigger than your estimations. The last thing you want is to lose power half way through the event. It also allows room for human error, if you miscalculate how much power you?re going to need, it might not only interrupt the event, but also put people at risk. Overloading a generator can be dangerous so it?s essential that generators for events are adequate for your requirements.


You should also consider where your diesel generator rental will be located. Generators emit carbon monoxide, so it?s important to make sure it?s away from guests and outdoors. Your generator should also be sheltered from the elements such as rain or snow etc. Of course, it still needs to be close enough to the action that the cables reach.


Lastly, when hiring generators for events it?s a good idea to chat with Woodlands Generators about the nature of your event. Many generators now are soundproofed and can often run unnoticed. Discussing your needs with a generator expert before the event will make sure you have the right generator for the job.
