“X Hire” is the dry hire division of SXS Events. We have launched our dry hire offering in 2018 as we now have the broadest range of high-end production gear in the UK.

SXS’ main focus is full production of high-end corporate events and arena shows. This high level work demands the best equipment, in the best condition, packaged in an efficient and robust way. Because of the wealth of stock we have from years of providing full production, we do not need to charge high dry hire rates on equipment to cover our overheads; whereas many other dry hire providers have to fund their entire businesses from dry hire. For us this income is a bonus to our core business, which allows us to be flexible and competitive.

Here is why you should use XHire:


– We take a new approach to dry hire by offering free training with all equipment.


– Because production design and staffing are in our DNA we can also offer the best real-world advice on equipment selection and use. Indeed all the people dealing with dry hire enquiries have used the equipment onsite so know it well.


– We offer five different types of hire to suit your needs and skills. Read here


– because of our uniquely large and broad resources we are offer a price-beat against any competing like for like quote. Send us a quote from another company and we promise to beat it by 5%


– we have the broadest range of production gear in the UK. Where else can you get broadcast camera gear, 1000litre water tanks, moving lights, ladders, LED screens and props all from one place!?!
