Tumblers

Whether for water or hi-ball style drinks, tumblers a versatile glass. We have thousands in stock ready to go out to your occasion in Yorkshire.

Although the humble tumbler is one of the more basic styles of glasses we stock, they are also the most popular. Tumblers are mostly used as water glasses but are suitable for any kind of drink.

What do I need to know about tumbler hire?

Tumblers are straight glasses, with a heavy base to prevent being tipped over. The taller versions of these glasses are called hi-ball tumblers and typically come in a size of 12oz or 300ml. These glasses are commonly used for water, but can also be used for soft drinks, beer or cocktails. The smaller versions of these glasses are called lo-ball and tend to be wider in diameter. They are particularly used as whiskey glasses and are normally in 7.75oz and 11oz sizes.

Do I need to clean my tumbler hire before it is collected?

The last thing anyone wants to do after a big event or occasion is even think about cleaning all the glassware that has been used. It's not only a pain of a chore though - most glass breakages occur while they are being washed.

This is why we have made it mandatory for all glassware items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing we ask our customers to do is to make sure any liquids or food debris has been emptied from glasses before they are repacked ready for collection.

How does delivery of water glass hire work?

All of our tumblers for hire are cleaned and checked prior to dispatch. We use specialised crates to ensure our glasses reach you in perfect condition. However, damage in transit does sometimes occur and we always recommend ordering a few extra tumblers than needed to allow for that.
