Furniture Hire FAQ’s

Should you have any questions, we hope that this FAQ page provides you with the answers.

Safety, simplicity and beauty are the key factors you need to consider while choosing your crib. Support for a soft and thick mattress and ventilation are essential features for your baby. It is better to opt for a reasonably bigger size crib so that it accommodates your child comfortably and gives plenty of space for the toys also.

Child Safety

  • You need to give top priority to safety. If you prefer to get a crib with wheels, choose the one which has a locking feature, as it prevents unintentional movement.
  • The gap between slats should be of maximum 5 to 6 centimetres. Minimum of 3 centimetres is required to allow proper light and ventilation.
  • Choose a crib with a fixed side rail. This way you don’t end up dropping it accidentally and hurting your baby.
  • While selecting the material for the crib, opt for unpainted wood or superior grade plastic. Metal is normally avoided unless it is high quality steel with no sharp edges.
  • The mattress should be thick enough (5 to 6 inches) to provide cushioning while sleeping.
  • The distance between top of the mattress and top of the rail should be at least 20 inches to prevent the child from climbing out.
  • Height of the crib legs should preferably be 5 to 6 inches to the mattress. This makes it easy for you to lift and place the baby inside firmly without having to stretch down too far.


  • You might get tempted to buy a fancy crib with complex design to amuse your kid. However, it is better to opt for a simple one to avoid baby clothes getting caught.
  • A soothing colour helps keep your baby (and you!) calm and soothed.
  • A convertible crib is ideal which can be changed into a bed once your child becomes 2 years old. Multiple functional cribs are also useful as they can be dismantled and transported easily when you move.


  • Minimum of 27” width x 54” length is required to provide maximum comfort. If your child’s room can accommodate a larger one, you can opt for 40” X 60”.
  • Avoid mattresses with a plastic coating which can cause allergic reactions in baby skin. Instead you can use a baby rubber mat to cover the mattress for when and if your baby wets the bed.
  • You can choose a canopy to cover the crib as it helps safeguard your baby from insects – and also can look very nice!

Travel Crib

A portable crib made of light weight aluminium, nylon and plastic is highly useful, as it can be carried wherever you travel. It is easy to assemble and dismantle within a few minutes.

Multi-use Crib

Multi-use cribs can accommodate a shelf for keeping baby clothes and things. However, you need to ensure maximum space within the crib to meet the safety guidelines aforementioned, and the room itself needs to be spacious enough.

Crib Shape

It is better to opt for a rectangular shape if you wish your kid to have maximum space. Round cribs occupy slightly less space and might be recommended if you have a small house. They are can be more lightweight in nature and, like rectangular cribs, are available in a variety of attractive colours.

With universities across the country running summer courses covering various different subjects for those who are unable to attend university full time throughout the year, it can be difficult to cater for these individuals when many of the apartments and rooms are currently unfurnished. In preparation for this summer rush, here at Bed Hire UK we are able to provide you with comfortable beds to furnish your student accommodation.

When students are coming over from foreign lands to attend university during the summer for various reasons, they may not be expecting the Ritz from their temporary accommodation but they will definitely be expecting the essentials such as a place to sleep, a kitchen and a bathroom. Therefore, hiring beds for a time span of a few months can be highly beneficial as it will work out a huge amount cheaper than buying all the furniture for a bedroom which is not seen as a necessity.

We have many clients that choose to use our services during the summer months and are always satisfied with the service that we provide. Our beds are folding so that they are easy to transport and take only a matter of seconds to set up. They are proven to be comfortable and therefore your visitors will be able to get a good nights sleep before their day of studying.

Whether you have a small or large amount of students attending your university this summer, we are more than happy to offer our services for your needs. If you would like to talk to us about arranging folding bed rentals for your university or school, please call us on 020 8933 8888 or get in touch via the contact page.

Most colleges open their doors to new and current students every year for language schools. There is an influx of students, both domestic and foreign, due to which sudden need for student accommodation arises. This means every room has to be equipped with beds, which could mean a sizeable investment. Colleges that are usually put up with such rather stringent circumstances would probably like to know how we will be able to bail them out of the situation.


Unlike buying beds to furnish student accommodation, there is no need for a large investment when it comes to hiring beds. In fact, hiring beds for student accommodation is considerably cheaper than going out and purchasing beds. So, bed hire could actually help save money, which could be put to better use.

Suits Your Timescale

One of the main benefits of bed hire is being able to have beds for a specific time period. You can hire the beds just for the holidays when the classes for the language schools are on. So once the holidays are over, the beds are removed, thereby facilitating easy cleaning of the rooms and preparing them for the next academic year.

Easy Replacement

At Bed Hire, we ensure that our beds are sturdy and durable. They are built to take in the rigours of a student’s lifestyle. However, sometimes, the beds can get damaged or broken. Under such circumstances, it is easy to replace these beds without suffering huge losses or incurring unnecessary expenses.

We at Bed Hire have more than 15 years of experience in the field of bed hire. We are a folding bed hire company that only offers high-quality beds that conform to EU standards. Our beds have been appreciated by some of the top tennis players, who come to compete at Wimbledon; as well as by other world famous athletes. Besides hotels, we supply beds to the Ministry of Defence, for student accommodation, summer schools, weddings, housewarmings, training companies, construction companies, and even stag and hen parties.

If you are looking for comfortable, student-friendly bed hire for student accommodation in your college campus during the holidays at short notice, we would love to assist you. You can rest assured knowing our beds are priced reasonably to make bed hire affordable.

Most hotels have fixed number of rooms with fixed number of beds, which means it is not easy to increase the beds to accommodate more guests at a drop of a hat. When in such circumstances, our unique bed hire service will definitely come in handy. Our bed hiring services are designed especially for hotels, standalone hotels and luxury hotel chains that host large functions and events, such as weddings, but do not have enough beds to accommodate all the guests.

Why Hire Beds?

At Bed Hire UK, we offer a range of high-quality folding beds and beech frame cots. When hotels hire beds from us, they do not have to increase their inventory or spend money on making additional purchases for a one-time event. We understand that large events are not held every day, and hotels may not be very conducive to spending money on making a purchase that they will use infrequently. Hence, our bed hire service is ideal for hotels. It allows hotels to get quick and easy access to as many beds and cots as they need, without having to worry about what to do with them after the event finishes.

Furthermore, our bed hire services allow hotels to offer a comfortable place for guests and event organisers to rest and relax after celebrations. This unique and personalised service is a great way to ensure satisfied guests, who will recommend the hotel to their friends and family, thereby bringing in more business for the hotel.

The Bed Hire UK Advantage

Our folding beds conform to EU standards, and are safe and comfortable. You can be certain that after enjoying and celebrating during the event, tired guests will love to relax on our beds. Whether your hotel is hosting a wedding, family reunion, corporate gathering or world famous athletes and sports stars, you can rest assured that your guests will compliment you on the comfort and luxurious feel of our beds.

We offer our customers competitive rates, without compromising on the quality of our folding beds. In addition, we ensure that the hotels we service receive a fast, reliable and friendly service throughout. You can count on Bed Hire UK to provide the service you are looking for in a time frame and budget that suits you perfectly..

If you are involved in the hospitality trade, such as owning a hotel, you will likely experience times of high demand when the number of guests exceeds the number of available beds. This is most likely to happen during the high-season or when there are special events such as weddings or conferences.

When you are caught short, you may be able to resolve the situation by adding extra beds in some guest rooms or other spaces. In order to do this though, you will either need to rent or buy this extra furniture. In many instances, the best choice will be for you to rent the beds – in that case, the Bed Hire Company will be able to cater for your needs.

Benefits of Bed Hire:

• Renting is likely to be the better option if you only need these beds during your busy times.

• You won’t need to find additional space for these beds when they’re not in use as you can simply send them back.
• If you suddenly find yourself short of beds, it can be very convenient to just call the Bed Hire UK and have furniture delivered as opposed to having to pay out for brand new beds.
• Another advantage of hiring, is it means that you can provide your guests with high quality extra beds instead of possibly buying low quality beds in order to keep within your budget.
• Many of these beds are available as a fold away option so you can easily transport them around your hotel and store them if necessary.

If you have decided that hiring a bed is your best option, you can contact us here at the Bed Hire UK. If you have any further questions about our bed hire service please don’t hesitate to get in touch, we will be happy to offer you any advice you need. We are based in West London, and we already hire beds to many of the best hotels in the London area.

Here at Bed Hire UK, we understand the importance of a good bed. Beds are an essential part of our everyday lives – the average person spends over 2000 hours a year sleeping. So it’s important that when you need a bed, it’s available for you. That’s why we provide high-quality foldaway beds for our customers – you can just fold them out when it’s time for bed.


A huge benefit of folding beds over regular beds is the extra space they allow for in the bedroom, as they are easily foldable and portable. If you’re a private customer looking to hire extra beds for the night to accommodate visiting family, most likely you will be glad of the extra room for the family to relax and socialise. Likewise, if you’re looking at folding bed rentals for your hotel, they will allow your guests to enjoy the luxury of a more spacious room before they sleep. Folding beds provide convenience for people who want a good night’s sleep but don’t necessarily want a bed taking up half of their living space.


If you need extra beds for a special function you’re hosting, perhaps a wedding or at Christmas, chances are you will not require these beds all year round. Buying a new bed is a big investment, whereas folding beds can be picked up at relatively low prices. And if you hire a folding bed through Bed Hire UK, it’ll be even cheaper! Our folding bed rentals start at just £27.50.


Even when you’re trying to save on space and money, you shouldn’t have to compromise on comfort. Sprung mattresses allow for a great night’s sleep as you can snuggle down and the mattress will adapt to you. Almost all of our folding bed rentals come with a sprung interior, which makes them light and value for money. We think they provide high-quality comfort, and many of our customers, including world famous athletes, agree!

So what’s the real advantage when it comes to hiring more beds over buying them? There are a whole range of benefits that come with the hire service that makes it a prominent choice for many major clients up and down the country.

Perhaps you’re fully booked for a wedding, and then more party guests need somewhere to stay. Perhaps you have a large Christmas booking and need extra beds to get everybody in. There are any number of reasons why a hotel may need the beds, and in these situations, buying is less than ideal.

Naturally, these beds are not needed permanently, and as soon as they have served their use, the best plan of action is simply to have them out of the way. If you’ve purchased your extra beds however, it may be difficult to find somewhere to put them, and as normal service resumes, you’ll find they’re simply not making you any money – money you’ve lost purchasing them in the first place.

With bed hire, you have a swift and comprehensive contingency plan that accounts for extra guests at your hotel, and then what to do with the beds once they’re done with. Hiring is a cost effective way of making sure your hotel is as busy as possible without having to sink in extra funds that may not even return!

The comfort of the beds we hire out here at Bed Hire is renowned, with Wimbledon tennis stars and Russian weight lifters commenting on the comfortable nights they’ve spent in them, and many large hotel chains employer our services consistently, you’d be mad not to take advantage of the client-oriented, friendly and beneficial service we offer!
