KIND WORDS FROM HAPPY CUSTOMERS…

  • From the outset, we found ESS Hire to be an excellent company to work with. From the quotation stage, right through to final installation, we were extremely pleased with the efficiency and professionalism of the company. We are delighted with the high-quality AV system that now greatly enhances the worship in church. Thank you.

  • Just a quick note to say thank you for continuing to support the event and being a reliable and easy to work with supplier!

  • Many thanks to you and all your team again for the awards this year—the extra lighting looked great!

  • Please thank everyone who looked after us this week – it all went very well, they were incredibly helpful and made sure that we had everything we needed. It was very much appreciated.

  • Today is my first day back in the office, and I just wanted to email you and say Thank You to you and your team for all your hard work in relation to this year’s Trophex. It really helps to have a team of suppliers who know what they’re doing and who just get on with the job.  

  • Thank you for all your time, work and support for Monday's Grand Final. It wad wonderful working with you all and we are very grateful for your expertise.

  • I must say a huge thank you to you and your colleagues at ESS for such a great job on the 9th, I was very happy with the service you provided. I very much appreciated your patience and understanding in staging the shows and thanks for being so accommodating with the changes on the day.

After having a quiet 18 months, we were back at Twinwood festival, the largest vintage festival in the UK, providing PA, lighting, staging and crew across every venue.

Despite having an enforced year off, our engineers helped put on the best event to date.

We would like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work and we hope to be back again next year.
