Long Term hire for Student Accommodation & Recreational Areas

Aswell as our daily hire service for events, we also offer the opportunity to keep one, or lots of our machines on a longer-term basis.

This is great for allowing students to get to know one another, as students gather around these popular retro classics!

You can set competitions and challenges to win prizes, and we can even customise machines with university or college colours!

We used Arcade Direct for a Boxing machine at the NEC. We chose them party due to the competitive price but also for the quick quote and helpful, clear communication. The machine was fully branded and looked fantastic. It was an absolute draw at the show and remarked on by many as the best entertainment there, bringing a lot of attention to our stand. During the show there was a part broken (no-ones fault) and Mark's support was brilliant with a courier sent immediately with a replacement to our Air bnb during the evening in time for the show opening the next day. We will definitely work with them on any future shows.

Highly recommend Arcade Direct. Mark was so helpful when i queried the status of an order of a Gaming Chair. As the delivery date was longer than expected i had to cancel however the customer service i received was fantastic.

I recently ordered a gaming chair & was really happy with the service. Mark was really helpful & the delivery was much quicker than expected!

I have had the pleasure of working with Arcade Direct several times. I can personally attest to their customer service and I have seen first-hand how their arcade machines transform events and venue spaces. I often recommend them to my personal contacts and clients.

Would highly recommend Mark & the team not only for hiring their Arcade Machines but for their event planning and theming too which cannot be faulted!
