Love Bownies, Devon, Spring 2022

Matt & Becki

"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)".

We will definitely be recommending you in the future! We really cannot thank you enough, you were brilliant."

Their Generators are good, their service is excellent and the price is very reasonable. 5 stars for Cornwall Generators from Zippos Circus!"

"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!"


Wedding, Launceston

Luke & Kirra

"The service you both provided was great from start to finish. The quote over the phone was quick and explained everything clearly. The setting up was as planned and Paul put a couple extra sockets for the bar staff. Collection was on the day as planned. I can’t comment on price compared to other companies and this was purely because I wanted to use a local company and was happy with what you were offering."

Wedding, South East Cornwall

Heather Wolhuter

"Cornwall Generator Hire have been fantastic. Without them we wouldn’t have had a party, they powered the whole event. No question or request was too silly, they responded promptly and helped us work out what we needed. Set up was easy and they sorted all the power cables to where we might have needed them. We both loved that they provided spare fuel and you got a refund if you didn’t used it all, this provided us with peace of mind that we wouldn’t be plunged into darkness and silence in the middle of our party. We were a little concerned that the generator might have been noisy but I don’t remember even noticing it.

Thank you so much Leoni and Paul, I couldn’t recommend Cornwall Generator Hire enough!"



Music Event, Mount Edgecumbe Estate, Cornwall

Jo (Miss Ivy Events)

Wedding, South Hams

Luke & Felicity Payne

"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! "


A big thank you from Luke and Felicity.


Wedding, Kingsbridge

Wedding, Cornwall

Chris and Freya Simms

"Cornwall Generators were fantastic.  We dealt with Leoni who having given our plans to, helped coordinate with our suppliers to ensure we had exactly what we needed for the big day.  We were always kept informed of updates and progress and couldn't be happier with their service.  They even provided some floodlights for our venue, helping to make Boconnoc House (venue) look great.  I would recommend Cornwall Generators for any generator or electrical hire."


Wedding, Mid Devon

The Bride

"A little review for your future customers, Cornwall Generator Hire were fantastic! Right from the first point of contact, we couldn’t fault them. They were brilliant at asking the right questions and helping in the areas we needed.

Great service all the way through! "

"After hunting around for a generator company and searching different sites, we came across Cornwall Generator Hire.


From sending through the initial enquiry to the set up on the day they have been fabulous. Leoni was always so quick to respond to emails and any questions I had which was reassuring. Unfortunately on the wedding day we had an issue with one of our supplier cables, but a call to the office and Paul was out straight away to assist them and offer the leads for the Caterers and I (the bride) had no idea anything had even happened!


They have been professional but friendly throughout and it's been great to use a local family business. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending them - it certainly took the stress out of the day for us".


Green Cow Diaries, Cornwall

Nick Vetch

"When installing our new milk processing equipment, we hadn't given enough thought to the electrical requirements and suddenly realised we would need a generator on relatively long term hire. Paul and Leoni were quick to establish our needs, provide a competitive quotation, deliver the generator to site and install, completely removing the stress of the situation for us. I would highly recommend them to anyone, for either longer term hire or short term events."

Village Fete

John Packard, St Ives

Cornwall Generator Hire supplied us with Generators, cable, distribution & electrical installation for our 'Halsetown Fete' in August of this year. With your advice and guidance we quickly settled on the package to suit our event.


The equipment was delivered on time with smiling faces from the entire Hollett family and quickly and efficiently installed to our requirements . We were given a clear operating brief and left to our own devices. Collection of the equipment on the following Monday was equally as swift ,on time and still smiling.  Good job and even better when we received our fuel rebate a few days later as promised. All in all good service with a smile what more could anyone want!



Matthew and Karen Pearson, Devon

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.



Knot & Pop Events Management, London

"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"

New Years Eve party

Cornwall VW Owners club

When Cornwall VW Owners club decided to hire a hall and hold their first ever New Years Eve party and camp over, provision for electric hook-ups to keep us all warm overnight in our camper vans, was high on our list of priorities!


Having never had any experience with hiring a generator before I really had no idea what we required, and what additional equipment was needed to get the power from the generator to more than twenty different vehicles that would be attending. Paul and Leoni arranged a site visit so they could advise on the best place to locate the generator. They offered guidance on the size of generator, what additional leads and distribution boxes were needed, and explained how this would all connect up to meet our requirements.


A convenient delivery time was agreed and the equipment arrived on schedule. Guidance on usage was given and everything was soon connected up and running. The equipment continued to work without a hitch, was collected at the agreed time, and we received a refund for the unused fuel shortly after the event.


All in all Cornwall Generator Hire were a pleasure to deal with and provided an efficient and friendly service, and I would not hesitate to  use them again for future events.


Music Festival

Royal British Legion Riders Branch (Devon)

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.
