Thank you so much!

Thank you so much for all your help Leoni and Paul. The bell tents were a triumph, and we really needed the generators to make them viable. It was incredibly chilly, yet all our bell tent guests loved having their cosy, heated homes for the weekend! Our wedding coordinator, Leilah said it was amazing working with you and that they’ll be keen to keep that partnership going. Thanks again.


Lily and James, March 2024

Put us at ease

“As a new catering business setting up for our first year of trading, it was very daunting signing up to an event that we had to provide our own power for, but after speaking to Leoni on the phone, her knowledge and understanding put us at ease. When our set up date came around we met with Paul on site who delivered the generator and he explained everything we needed to know. We were very happy with their friendly service and will definitely be using them again for the events we require to provide our power at. Thank you both very much, Matt and Becki (Love Brownies Trailer)”.

Post-Covid Wedding Party

Jinks Family, North Devon

You were brilliant

“A huge thank you to you both for your excellent service, we cannot thank you enough for providing the twin generators and uplighters for our wedding. The generators were so quiet we hardly heard them running but they were just what we needed for our day. The uplighters added a great effect to our woodland marquee wedding after Paul’s recommendation. It all looked amazing and the service you provided to supply and collect the items was spot on. We will definitely be recommending you in the future! We really cannot thank you enough, you were brilliant.”


Sam and Charlotte, Mid Devon

Friendly and easily approachable

“We originally booked Cornwall Generator Hire to supply their ‘twin Generators’ for our Daughter’s Wedding in May 2020 initially. They were friendly and easily approachable along with their suggested advice of items required found to be most helpful.

Sadly due to covid with all weddings having to be postponed, both changes of dates were met with a professional attitude with deposits transferred to secure the new dates. Fast forward to April 2021, when the decision has been made for the wedding to continue within the guidelines of 15 attendees so no need for the supply of the generator. Leoni has been adamant that the original deposit is returned to us and we owe them nothing for the cancellation.

Please support this business if power for An Outdoors Event is required as they offer a reliable and cost effective service.”.


Martin and Nancy, Honiton Devon

100% recommend you

“Thank you for such a professional service. Everything was very well explained by Paul on arrival. It made the party a lot less stressful knowing all the equipment was first class! Thank you to you both and we will 100% recommend you when we start hiring out our marquee.”

Planet Pluto Festival

Planet Pluto, Hartland, Devon

Couldn’t have asked for any more

“We had a great time, so thank you very much to you and Paul. Couldn’t have asked for any more of you both really pleased and the option to put more fuel in if we needed was really appreciated and run it for longer. We had a friends wedding last year where their generator company said they only put enough in to last the day and we weren’t allowed to add more, which caused a bit of stress, trying to manage use while keeping fridges cool etc…. So great that you guys don’t do this!”.


The Gribbles, West Devon

An excellent company to deal with

“The event went very well, a great show and the sound and light package worked very well thanks to the ample supply of power from your excellent generators which were very quiet. An excellent company to deal with and worked well with our team.”

Event Manager, Tiverton, Devon

Would recommend

“You’ve been very helpful and friendly with prompt delivery and collection. It was very good of you not to charge us for the lighting. Definitely would recommend to anyone else. No complaints here! Thanks again for everything”.


Abi and Matt, South Hams, Devon

Both fantastic

“Our feedback is that you were both fantastic, so helpful every step of the way (especially when it got a bit dicey with the weather!) and the generators were faultless. Would definitely recommend you for anyone holding events down in the South West or anywhere for that matter! Thank you so much for all of your help!”.


Nik Grantham, Barnstable

A fantastic experience

“Thank you for everything you both have done. We had a fantastic experience working with you guys. It was all so easy and you got what we wanted and offered help along the way. The second generator was a lovely touch. Which meant a lot to us!

Can’t thank you enough. Hope the cup of tea was ok :)”


The Horner Family, Mid Devon

Absolutely 5 stars

“We can’t recommend Hollett / Exeter generator hire enough. The team were an absolute pleasure to work with from beginning to end. Communication was first class, we were provided with excellent information on what equipment we would need and the on site installation was fast and with no bother. We would have no hesitation in recommending or working with them again. Absolutely 5 stars.”


Ade & Zoe Edwards, Ivybridge

Just about perfect!

“I’m not sure you can improve your service, as far as we were concerned you were just about perfect. You were always quick to respond to emails, flexible with delivery dates and changes to cabling requirements, gave advice on requirements, provided a new generator with plenty of power and plenty of spare fuel. What more could we ask for! ”


Luke & Felicity Payne, South Hams

First-rate service

“Happy to say that Cornwall Generator Hire gave us a first-rate service and you were most helpful, best wishes”.

Ed Jewson, West Devon

Thoughtful and efficient

“Many thanks for the generator and setting everything up. The experience was extremely positive, thoughtful and efficient”.


Jon Bell, West Devon

Quick response

“Thanks for the hire and we were very happy with the quick response and customer service that you provided over the weekend. We appreciate that we cancelled the second generator late, due to the misunderstanding of transport costs, and we really appreciate your understanding on this. We would love to use you again next time as we want to support your business. We hope the rest of your festival season goes well and will be in touch next year.”


Keith, Wigfest, Devon


“The generator was great! It’s been flawless, thank you”.

Really friendly

“A big thank you to Cornwall Generator Hire for their assistance with our Devon street food event at Atlantic Village. We went with CGH because of their location to our event but also because of their pricing! The team were really friendly, punctual, and went above what they needed to do. We will be using them in future for events in the South!”.

Helpful and a pleasure to work with

“We were delighted with all aspects of the service that Paul and Leoni provided, from the flexibility and cheerful nature of the delivery and placement of the generator, to the explanation and use of leads / floodlight. Throughout, everyone that we have dealt with has been courteous, helpful and a pleasure to work with.

Many thanks for the part that you played in making our party a success.”.

Family Party

The Durrant Family, Devon

Exceptional service

“Thank you Leoni and Paul for your exceptional service providing generator power and lighting for our daughters wedding at the beautiful Dunwell farm in Devon. Your help, advice and support was phenomenal and nothing was too much trouble”.


Mr & Mrs Wooster, Ugborough

Professional support

“As the Royal British Legion Riders Branch (Devon) we needed two big generators for a major Motorcycle/Music rally being held at the lovely setting of Calstock in Cornwall, we had 25 Bands playing 12 hours a day in a large Marquee which needed power for all of the sound, lights and instruments – one email to Leoni & Paul at Hollett Electrical seeking advice (as this was a new experience to arrange such a big event) and very soon thereafter had secured two 50KVA generators, cable, distro and additional fuel. The delivery and pick up timings were secured and everything was managed, so I just had to wait for the big day.

The generators arrived on time and positioned perfectly at the rear of the field and a in-depth run through of the ‘how to start/stop & refuel’ was given, paperwork signed we were ready to go! Over the weekend, the generators proved faultless, providing power without fault or much noise (They are very quiet for such a big output). Support was offered if we needed it via a phone number or visit if required – we didn’t need it.

The pick up time arrived and on the dot Paul and Leoni collected the generators and supplied kit, this was total service with a smile and professional support from the small team – I would recommend the service if you need power at an event.”

First class

“Thanks Leoni & Paul, we had a great day and everything went really well, the organisation and service provided by Cornwall Generator Hire really was first class. Once again thank you very much, It really worked flawlessly”.


Liam & Anna Kilbridge, Ivybridge

Professional and efficient

“We hired a generator in July this year for our wedding reception. From the minute we contacted them the service was professional and efficient, from the initial stages of working out the type of generator we needed all the way through to when they picked it up.

They went out of their way to make sure they had covered all the power requirements by making contact with the caterers and marquee hire and were flexible with times and dates of delivery and collection which made it easier for us when setting up. They delivered on time and were friendly and efficient when setting up, making it a very simple job. The generator itself was easy to turn on and off and it provided everything needed for not only the day of the wedding but also the following day when we used it again. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul and Leoni for anyone looking to hire a generator in the area.”


Matthew and Karen Pearson, Devon

A joy to work with.

“Hollett & Co were a joy to work with. Ever helpful and professional, going above and beyond to help deliver a fantastic wedding weekend. We highly recommend them for an expertly delivered service”



Knot & Pop Events Management, London

Stress free

“Using Cornwall Generator Hire was stress free with a high quality service. Not knowing power requirements and fuel use, Leoni and the team made sure we had everything we needed and more. They were also super flexible and came totally prepared. I certainly would recommend CGH for any event requiring power no matter how big or small”.

Highly efficient delivery

“We were extremely pleased with the highly efficient delivery of a generator for our outdoor event and celebrations. The equipment was in excellent condition, delivered and collected on time and with courtesy and great respect for the space.
