Post-Corona Staycations & Maximum Bed Capacity In London Hotels

The last couple of years have been difficult for all of us. We’ve all had to deal with being locked down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and that’s left everyone even more hungry than normal for a holiday and some time to get out of the 4 walls of their home that have become the norm.

However, with the restrictions for travel still leaving our options for holidays a little limited, people are flocking to UK destinations to satisfy their need to get out and do something different.

London Travel

London is one of the most popular destinations due to its vibrant atmosphere, world-famous tourist attractions, and delicious eateries. It has around 30 million visitors travelling there each year. These tourists, as well as the millions of Londoners living there all year round, can make London a busy and bustling city full of people.

London is one of the best city breaks to experience a little bit of culture, even if it is on our doorstep. However, its popularity means that it can be difficult to find the perfect place to stay. Hotels book up months in advance, holiday-makers need to ensure they’re organised and book as soon as possible.

How Can London Hotels Cope With The Higher Demand?

The peak season is always a struggle for hotels in London as they try to keep up with the demands of their hotel and turn over rooms as quickly as possible for new guests.

The Solution

Bed hire can be a blessing for hotels during busy times to help them cater to more guests. Let’s explore some of the biggest benefits high-quality bed hire offers London hotels:

●   Increased Profits

Having the ability to pull extra beds into rooms to meet the higher demand will allow hotel owners to get a little more money for each room on offer. Some guests will come as families that might require child’s beds in their rooms, or other travelers might want to stay in the same room as friends. Being able to fit an extra person into a large room will mean one more paid breakfast and more drinks at the hotel bar.

●   Customer Service

The ability to add in extra beds will improve guest’s experience and encourage great reviews for repeat custom. If the hotel can be flexible with beds, it can offer a much better service.

●   Higher Quality Beds

Beds are expensive and increasing flexibility within the hotel can cost a bomb. Most hotels won’t find this useful as the cost of a bed that won’t be used year-round won’t seem worth it. However, bed hire can help this problem as it’s a fraction of the cost and you only pay for the time that you’ll require the bed. Insurance is often offered on the beds too, to ensure the hotel doesn’t get a bill for any damages.

●   No Need for Storage 

Those extra beds in the hotel won’t be used all the time. Beds aren’t easy to store though and could take up a significant amount of space. Hiring beds will mean that the beds are only in the hotel when they’re required, and they can be removed when they’re not needed – which means no wasted space.

If you’re struggling with the higher demand of guests in your hotel this year – good for you! It’s a great problem to have. Hiring beds to cater to your visitors can increase your profits and create a better customer experience for your guests so they’re sure to visit again.

Moving Home, Changing Your Home, & Making Space In Your Home: Relieving Pressure By Hiring A Bed

Moving home can be stressful. Moving the whole family to a brand-new location can feel overwhelming as you try to coordinate everyone and everything as you move into your new living space.

On many occasions while moving house, the case may be where even the idea of a good night’s sleep is a distant and fond memory, and for good reason, there is a mountain of events and problems that could potentially arise during the big move or the big home fix-up.

When You’re Moving

Too frequently, people move and intend to purchase a new bed on arrival, but things don’t line up as they’d hoped when the shipment’s delivery schedule is booked out on the only day that works for them. What that will mean is a very hard sleep on a very deflated air mattress, or possibly even the cold hard floor. 

A good night’s sleep can make all the difference when you have to juggle the other aspects of moving, and that’s why Bed Hire can get you a good night’s sleep on-demand with even less hassle than the 40 minutes it would take you to pump up that Benidorm family holiday take-home lilo. With quick and simple delivery, and the ability to rent the bed for as long as you need, you can take the stress out of moving by guaranteeing yourself a comfortable night’s sleep.

That Spare Room Conundrum 

Hiring a bed can be a massive convenience if you don’t have a huge amount of extra space in your home. If you want to have visitors come and stay, having a spare room with a bed you own makes that area of your home almost useless for the times when you don’t have guests. Bed hire means you can free up space when you want it and have a bed ready for when your guests need it.

During Renovations

Let’s say you are renovating part of your home. Moving the bed from room to room is more effort than it’s worth, and so again, you find yourself sleeping uncomfortably on the floor or on your sofa. Bed hire is a fast and simple solution, with our efficient team providing the bed and doing all the heavy lifting involved. We guarantee that you can relax and get some well-deserved rest.

Bed hire can provide you with the much-needed time and peace of mind to get things ready at your pace. While you look for your perfect new bed and get your new space settled, you can be assured that having a comfy place to sleep is well taken care of.

So for those occasions, with over 3000 beds on constant stand-by, Bed Hire is here to provide you with a quick and easy bed hiring service with next-day delivery on demand.

Why Hire a Highchair Instead of Buying One?

Preparing for a new baby is one of the most stressful but exciting times in your life. There’s so much to organise to ensure you have everything ready for that new little person in your household and you’re always bound to forget something. After all, you’re only human.

One of the biggest things that new parents don’t realise is just how much everything a baby needs costs. There are the clothes, cots, prams, nappies, toys – the list goes on. It’s important to set a budget and try to stick to it, getting carried away with those extra cute bonnets and booties can mean things get too expensive.

The best way to stick to a budget is to consider hiring some of the items. Babies grow quickly so sometimes the expensive pieces of baby furniture aren’t worth the money you paid because they’re only with you for a few months.

Why Would You Need To Hire A Highchair?

Highchairs can be quite expensive, so many people consider hiring a highchair instead of buying one to save a bit of cash.

The Benefits of Hiring a Highchair Instead of Buying

So, what are the advantages of hiring a highchair rather than buying one?

●      Cost-effective

Highchair hire can be much more affordable than buying one outright. You will only need a highchair from when your baby is around 4-6 months old up to 18-24 months. This is the brief stint when they move from milk to more pureed foods.

The price of a highchair, especially a brand new one, could be extortionate, especially when you know you’ll only need it for around a year of your child’s life.

Hiring a highchair means that you will pay a fraction of the cost every month, so it won’t break your budget.

●      Recycling

Hiring a high chair is much more eco-friendly than buying one brand new. You know that the hiring company will clean down the highchair when you’re done using it and offer it to someone else. This saves manufacturing costs and stops your old highchair from being thrown into a landfill.

●      Installments

When you hire a highchair, you can pay in installments every month, rather than having to pay using a one-off payment. This is much easier for people living on a monthly budget, as there’s no need to save up in advance.

●      Size Changes

Although most highchairs are adjustable, there’s no way to predict how quickly your baby will grow. If you’re buying a highchair, you can’t possibly know how long it will last. If your baby outgrows it, you’ll be left with another huge outgoing for a new one. If you’re hiring though, the hiring company will just send you a replacement.

●      Insurance

Most highchair hire companies will set you up with insurance as part of your purchase. That way there’s no need to worry about breakages, as they’ll just send out a new one.

●      Flexibility

You never know when your baby will start to eat baby food or will start to sit up and eat by themselves – it’s something you can’t plan. Hiring a highchair will give that element of flexibility. You can hire a highchair when you need one and give it back whenever you’re done without having to work out what to do with it.

The Benefits of Clothing Rails

When you go out clothes shopping, you might get fixated on a specific item. You love the way it looks and just can’t go home without it. This is because you like the look and feel of the item and think it’ll suit you – but it’s also about the way it was presented to you in the shop.

A clothing rail offers some massive benefits when it comes to displaying items. It’s easy to access the clothes, you can compare it with other items in the same range, and it makes the display look tidy. It’s immediately appealing to our brains as people naturally don’t like clutter.

So, why not apply the same principles in your own home?

Many people are now choosing to purchase or hire a clothing rail in favour of a wardrobe as part of their interior décor.

–        Design

A minimalist clothing rail that matches your room’s style can add to your overall home design. You can use the rail to showcase some of your favourite items and add to the uniqueness in the room. It will put an original stamp on your design and ensure no one has a room like yours.

–        Kids Rooms

A small clothing rail will help your children learn responsibility. Rather than hiding away the mess in a wardrobe, make them accountable for keeping the room tidy by hanging up their clothes.

–        Outfit Choices

One of the biggest reasons that shops use clothing rails is to display the items in positions to allow you to piece together outfits. This will work in your home too. Use the clothing rail to easily see every item to allow you to pull together the perfect outfit. It’s much simpler than routing through a wardrobe and gives you a view of the colours in a better light, so you can see what matches.

–        Moving House

Clothes rail hire is also the perfect solution for shorter-term use. Hiring a clothing rail can allow you flexibility within your home, so you can move your clothes around if needed, and is a great solution if you just don’t have a wardrobe yet.

Moving to a new home can be stressful and the last thing you need is to be routing through boxes every day to find the perfect outfit. Hiring a clothing rail can provide the ideal, stress-free stopgap between the moving van and the wardrobe.

–        Transportation

There’s a reason that all shops use clothing rails with wheels. They’re easy to move around. Clothing rails are flexible and can be adjustable in height. This makes them perfect for moving between rooms while decorating or between places of work or leisure if you’re a traveler.

–        Inexpensive

One of the biggest reasons that people choose clothing rails is because they’re much cheaper than wardrobes and do the same job. If you’re on a budget, moving home, or just want to give your new bedroom that stylish edge, a clothing rail could be the right choice for you.

Why You Might Need To Hire A Bed

Life happens, accidents occur and the unexpected always comes around, for those with kids and large families this applies more than most people.

You never know when you may need an extra place for someone to sleep. Perhaps you might just need some sleeping alternatives for a short period. Hiring a bed to rent short-term can be a great solution to a large variety of potential situations that may come up in your life.

Renting a bed is a great resource for many different situations, such as if an elderly family member falls ill or is in any form of physical recovery when stair access to bedrooms is no longer an option. When renovating your home and you need somewhere to sleep temporarily, hiring a bed is cheaper than a hotel room.

Hiring a bed is very affordable depending on your options, it is also easy and hassle-free. When you hire a bed you don’t need any extra space or room to store the bed afterwards when no longer in use. After the beds are no longer in use there is no need to dismantle or take anything apart, you won’t have to move it to the basement or attic, just schedule the retrieval.

While there are many different types of beds available for hire, particularly in medical and hospital varieties, your more standard and basic beds are often designed to fold up conveniently to help facilitate transport in vehicles and when moving through building units.

Assisted Comfort

Medical beds are expensive to buy and when no longer in use they have to be sold or removed. Renting or hiring a medical bed is a great solution for those with any physical injuries or illnesses that require assisted comfort.

There is a large variety of medical beds available, beds that are height adjustable with electronic controls, where you can adjust the incline of both the head or foot of the mattresses.

Hospitals will also outsource sometimes and hire extra medical beds when needed, as they can be quite expensive. Hiring a bed is often the more economical approach.

Large Gatherings. Events, Celebrations, and Business

For large family gatherings, weddings, birthdays, and family traditions sometimes planning for extra guests can be tricky and sleeping arrangements can be difficult to manage, renting a couple of extra beds will quickly solve all the arrangement issues for you.

Hiring a bed is an affordable short-term solution to sleeping space problems. It doesn’t make sense to buy a bed if it’s for a guest who’s only staying for a night. Even if your guest is staying for an extended period of time, discuss bed hiring options for your provider. It’s often still more affordable to hire a bed than purchase one in this scenario.

How Often Should Hotel Beds Be Updated?

If you are just starting with setting up hotel beds or folding beds for the first time, it might be easy to overlook the idea of ever replacing your units. The fact is all beds you set up in a hotel are going to need replacing after a time. In many cases, modern hotel chains choose to look into bed hire, instead, so they don’t need to mess around with buying a new unit every so often.

5 Advantages of Having a Folding Bed

Have you ever thought about buying folding beds before? What about bed hire for when you have guests over? You might be interested in having people over to stay but might not have the fixed bedroom space available to welcome them into your home. This is all the more reason to look into folding bed hire, or general bed hire for guests when they visit!

Benefits Of Hiring A Bed

Here are some great reasons why buying or renting folding beds just makes sense.

1. Save On Space

Folding beds are great space-savers. As you’ll already know, a bed can take up plenty of space in a room – well over 50% of floor spaces in most cases! Folding bed hire, however, will make sure that you can easily put your beds away by the morning, meaning that you can transform your space from day to day. It’s also great for smaller homes with only a couple of rooms.

2. Great For Guests

If you’re likely to have guests stopping over regularly, then it makes sense to have some form of spare bedroom suite set up. However, many people don’t have spare rooms at all, while others may worry that investing in any kind of bed is going to be an extra expense. If you do have guests stay over frequently, it’s easy enough to hire a folding bed which you can just roll out as and when they need it.

3. Comfort Is key

Some people may assume that folding beds are nowhere near as comfy as ‘the real thing’. This simply isn’t true! The best foldable beds are built with supportive, comfortable springs, meaning that while it’s easy to think that a spare bed that folds out is going to offer minimal support, a few nights’ sleep on a folding bed is going to give you plenty of comfort.

4. Portable And Easy To Move

Being portable is a real selling point for folding beds. Folding bed hire will offer you a unit that you can easily close up and carry around. This is perfect if you are likely to be moving from place to place, or if you want to change your rooms over time. Crucially, it’s amazing flexibility. You are never fixed in one place, which means you can pretty much make any space in any room a sleeping area.

5. Lots Of Choice And Functionality

There’s likely to be more choice in folding beds than you imagine. They don’t all come in one shape, size, or style! There are many different types and sizes of folding bed units available for hire, meaning if you are looking for an extra-long bed or something a little shorter than most, all you have to do is take a look at your options online. Why should you ever restrict yourself?
