Equipment Hire

When we first started Navigators, we looked at how we can make nights away easier.  As a result, Lincoln Navigators has a fully featured mobile kitchen, suitable for catering for up to 90 people. Our mobile kitchen unit has the following:

  • Fridge/Freezer
  • Bain Marie
  • 4 Ring Burner
  • Griddle
  • Hot/Cold Water
  • Pot Washing Sink
  • Hand Wash Basin
  • Standard kitchen utensils
  • Interior and exterior lights
  • 4 x USB Charging sockets
  • Anti-slip flooring

The trailer runs off 2 x 19KG LPG propane cylinders. The internal 12 volt power system is powered by 2 solar panels mounted on the roof, backed up by 2 high capacity leisure batteries.

Our hire rates are as follows:

  • £100 per day
  • £250 per weekend (Fri – Mon)
  • £550 per week
  • £250 deposit applies regardless of hire period.

On top of these charges, we have a unique pricing model for charging for gas. Should the gas run out whilst the unit is hired, you will need to pay to get the two cylinders re-filled. This can be done anywhere which sells Calor Gas. Once the hire has ended, you need to supply a copy of the receipt, and the cost of the gas re-fill will be refunded back to you. The cylinders will be weighed at the beginning of the hire, and at the end.

We charge a flat rate of £4 per KG of gas used. This charge will come off the deposit, before any remainder is sent back to you at the end of the hire. If you wish to use your own cylinders, the trailer will come with the gas cage empty. You will just need to screw the connectors onto your cylinders. The unit will only run with 19KG cylinders. If you try using any different cylinders, the automatic shut off valve will operate.

Damage / Cleanliness

Any damage incurred on any appliance or the trailer other than fair wear and tear will be charged back to the hireree. The trailer should be returned in a clean and tidy state. A cleaning surcharge may be added should any item, appliance, or the trailer generally be returned dirty or untidy.

Electrics

The only item you are permitted to plug into the trailer are 5v USB devices such as lights, phones, powerbanks etc. Inverters and other 12v devices can drain the batteries to a level where they will not properly re-charge. If the electrics have been tampered with, this will be treated as criminal damage.

Water

The trailer uses a pump powered by the 12v power system to supply the boiler, and taps with water. You have the option of using aqua rolls with the supplied suction hose, or a potable hose pipe and outdoor tap (this will bypass the pump).

The boiler will heat water to 65 degrees above ambient. If you require boiling water, you should use the kettle and 4 ring burner.

If water flow stops, it is likely there is an issue with the water source, and the pump should be turned off whilst the aqua roll / water butt is refilled.
