Deckchair Hire – The Stripes Company UK

Deckchair Hire

There’s been a vogue over the last few years for people to buy those ugly, foldy chairs you can get at garages and motorway service stations for occasions rather than using deckchair hire.
Those that have purchased one find they’re flimsy, awkward things that fall apart soon after you plonk down on them or, if they do survive, will soon have you flailing around like a fool as you vainly try to collapse them down and coax them back into the inadequate bag they supply with them.

Deckchair Hire – for people who know

For those in the know the classic, seaside deckchair was the original fold‐away chair and it still reigns supreme. Perfect in design, comfortable, decorative and easy to store. They are the original flat pack seating and are still the best.
Thousands of chair hire vendors in resorts nationwide can’t be wrong. But why limit their availability just to our coastal fun spots when the vintage deck chair has many more marvellous stripy uses? That’s why here at The Stripes Company we’re pleased to offer our deckchair hire service.

Deckchair Hire ? – sit down, we’ll tell you more

If you’re having a special event such as a garden tea party, an open air wedding or an intimate summer concert then your guests’ seating will be important. That, and creating the special ambiance and attention to detail that separates a good event from a fantastic one. That’s why our hire service will be just the ticket. Deckchair hire offers you the flexibility of getting just the right number of seats and will avoid the higgledy‐piggledy look that a forest of ‘garage’ chairs will bring. You can hire as few as 8 chairs all the way through to 300 and the great thing is the more you hire the better the price. Naturally our deckchairs are all in our trademark stripes fabrics that will perfectly match the colour palate of your occasion. At the end when you’ve accepted your plaudits and your guests have left the chairs will stack easily and neatly until we come along and pick them up.

Heritage Deckchair Hire Launches


North Pier Blackpool
North Pier Blackpool

If there was ever an enduring image of Beach Life UK, it has to be the one of Blackpool’s iconic deckchairs in rows on the pier, or on the beach with windbreaks, the knotted handkerchiefs/ braces combo and the Tower in the background….

Having been given the opportunity to purchase ALL Blackpool’s deckchairs, (arguably the best and most famous in the world) the stipulation was to move them quickly. We had just a week to find a new home for them and organise the move.

The design of a deckchair was originally based on campaign furniture – the type of which could be folded (flat packed!) and transported by armies across continents.

There is no easy way to move 6000 deckchairs from a massive pile piles of blackpool deckchairsinto waiting trucks, except single handling by an army of ants. However, due to the shortage of ants in a Blackpool Council depot, we had to elicit the services of 14 strong men, two lorries, two full Saturdays and 8 return trips from Blackpool to South Cheshire.

Not to mention the catering requirements of vast quantities of fish and chips for the workers whilst reclining in deckchairs for their lunch breaks.

Now safely ensconced, the hiring process is now underway for sending and collecting deckchairs anywhere within mainland UK.


They may be covered in the original plastic, new plastic or our lovely cotton canvas stripes.

All chairs remain in original condition except for the metalware on each chair, which will be replaced for safety.  We expect that chair maintenance and cleaning will be a continual process, but with many  spare parts and a great team, we will be able to undertake this task.

So if you are organising a party no matter how large or small, we will be able to assist in some way.  See Heritage Deckchair Hire or call 01244 336387
If you would like to purchase one of our iconic deckchairs, please give us a call, we would wish to make these available and accessible as part of our great heritage.

If you have visions of your event or fundraiser being controlled by a man in a flat cap issuing tickets with an original machine, we may be able to fix that too!
