Classic Fire Engines for Hire

Classic Fire Engines for Hire

Classic Engine Events have made three classic fire engines available to hire across Edinburgh and the Lothians for many events ranging from wedding transport through to charity events. We have a 1935 Dennis Big 4, a 1964 Dennis F28 fire engine, a 1991 Dennis Fire Engine Limo and our newest addition: a fully functioning and equipped 1995 Dennis Rapier engine.

These Dennis fire engines are owned and operated by a fire fighter of 20+ years service in the Lothian & Borders brigade.

For more information and images of the engines please see The Engines.

Classic Engine Events has been set up to give the public an opportunity to use and admire these rare machines. The Dennis Fire Engines are guaranteed to grab people’s attention whether it be in the public eye at a charity event or it can be put to use at a more intimate affair such as a Wedding or a Retiral. We can also provide transport for hen / stag parties and similar in the limo.

The fire engines for hire are equipped with period fire gear and accompanying the engines at any event will be fire fighters dressed in relevant attire. This outfit may be formal, including flat caps and dress trousers, or, action gear which includes helmets, slickers and axe belts.

The Dennis limo will also have child dress up equipment. If this is required, it is sure to keep your wee ones happy! We can even include some fire gear for mum or dad!

Our 1995 Dennis Rapier engine is suited to any function. This is available to hire for children’s parties, weddings, television and so on. It is fully kitted out with all the standard on board equipment and can still function as a working fire engine.
