Arcade Machine Hire

Arcade Game Machine Hire in the UK and Europe

Based in Preston, Arcade Direct are one of the UK’s leading arcade machine hire firms, offering a variety of classic gaming and retro arcade machines for hire in the UK and throughout Europe, to domestic, commercial and corporate clients.

What type of Arcade Machine ‘Hire’ are you looking for?

We offer two main types of hire, these are Event Hire and Long-term Hire

Event Hire

This is based on a one-off hire and can be for a few hours or a few days. This could be the perfect choice for your next corporate event, wedding, exhibition stand or marketing activity. Arcade machines add that interaction factor to make your activity stand out from the crowd. As a result this could drive more guests to your exhibition stand for instance, generating a greater ROI.

Long-term Hire

This is also referred to as arcade machine rental or lease and is for businesses looking to install machines into an office, pub, bar or club for a longer period of time. Our contracts for this type of hire start from 12-months and benefit for much lower rental prices. Installing retro arcade machines into your venue create not only an added attraction but also a reason for guests to stay longer (and drink more).

Alternately, if you’re thinking about buying a machine or investing in a games room for your home or business, but you’re not sure whether it would get used, why not rent our arcade machines for a trial period first? We offer extremely competitive short-term arcade machine rental rates, and should you wish to keep the machines after your rental term has ended, we will reflect this with a discounted purchase price.
