Generator rental & power is not an easy thing to understand! We regularly receive calls and emails from couples, parents and event organisers asking us for help. Often messages will start with a simple ‘we need a generator, can I have a price please’. Our helpfulness, knowledge and simple pricing structure aim to make everything as simple and straight forward as possible.
We’ve all seen builders, tradesmen and possibly even event organisers renting from the ‘big boys’ in the tool or plant hire sector. More-often than not we get compared to these generator rental companies, and people simply look at the headline price difference. In short, this is understandable as weddings are typically not very budget friendly! Please continue with this article to learn of the reasons why you should seriously consider using an events specialist for your event generator rental.
Our ultra silent event hire generators are 20kva and 40kva in power output size. Typically a 20kva generator will suffice a wedding for upto 120 guests with an informal dining option. Some hire centre’s do offer 20kva generators but often will suggest using several 6kva generator as this is a readily available model for them. This would technically be do-able; with one for the band, a second for catering and maybe another for lighting. 3 generators for the job which we can do with one…

Breaking Down the Headline Price
We know and understand that price is a big factor when it comes to making your final decision on where to hire from.
Probably our biggest piece of advice on generators, is that, typically, you do get what you pay for. At Grizzly Bear Events we do aim to be one of the most competative on the market but from time to time we are slightly more expensive than other generator hire companies. We’d advise that you look at the reasons fully before making a decision. Is £50-100 worth the additional workload, stress and worry?
Below, there is a price example summary of ourselves v’s a tool hire company. The aim is to demonstrate that often the costs are comparable. However, generally we offer more for your money when you look at the bigger picture.
