Mobile Bar Hire are a Dartford based company supplying portable bar hire services to events throughout the UK. However, on the 12th July 2013, Mobile Bar Hire received a phone call from a client in Jurmala, Latvia for their fully circular LED bar counter for a large corporate event on the 22nd July 2013. After some hard research the Dartford based company came to the conclusion that there was not enough time to place the bar onto a pallet and send it over on a ship whilst their staff fly out to assemble it.

Mobile Bar Hire on their way to Latvia

It was at this moment that Mobile Bar Hire took the brave decision to load their Luton van and drive the three day journey to Latvia. This journey would include a ferry from Dover to Calais, a drive through France to Belgium, then through Germany, Poland, Lithuania and finally to Latvia on the 22ndJuly with plenty of time to set up before the event began.


The 2 members of staff then flew back on the 23rd of July to spend time with their families before they are due to fly back out on the 30th July 2013 to bring the bar back.


Local South London based company Mobile Bar Hire Ltd, attended the awards ceremony of the South London Business Awards on the 4th July 2013.

Highly Commended in Business

 The company, who earlier in the year had won the ‘Best Hospitality, Leisure and Travel and Tourism Business’ in the Bexley Business Awards were shortlisted as finalists for the same category in the more competitive awards.

All 10 finalists in the category had gone through a vigorous judging process which included questionnaires with supporting evidence as well as a face to face interview in front of a judging panel. The 10 finalists were then invited to the awards ceremony at the Park Plaza Hotel in Vauxhall to perhaps win the prestigious award.

Mobile Bar Hire Ltd took second place as they received the ‘Highly Commended’ award after just being beaten to the post by Berkley, designed for life.

One of the directors of Mobile Bar Hire Ltd, Ragbhir Sandhu said ‘It is a real achievement and a real credit to all of the Mobile Bar Hire staff to come runner up in such a competitive category. We will now take this and build on it and hopefully come back next year even stronger!’
