Read what othey have to say about us below and we would be very grateful for your review after you have used us.

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)".


Post Covid Wedding Party, North Devon, Spring 2022

Jinks Family

"Thanks so much for all of your help! Such great service and hassle free".


Mid Devon Wedding, July 2021

Sam and Charlotte

"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."

Wedding, Honiton Devon 2021

Martin and Nancy

"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."

Wedding, West Devon

The Gribbles

"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!"


Bampton Charter Fair

"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."

"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!"


Wedding, Mid Devon

The Horner Family

"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 :)"


Wedding, Ivybridge

Ade & Zoe Edwards

"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."



Luke & Felicity Payne, South Hams

"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! "



Lucy & George,  Kingsbridge

"We couldn't fault the service you gave us. You have been very prompt in replying to emails, great on the phone, tuned up when you said and the equipment was in great condition. We would definitely use you again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend you.


Many thanks for everything".

Thanks again for being a part of our big day, you were all extremely professional and helpful in the build up, which is more than appreciated! "



Keith, Wigfest 2017, Devon

"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."

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

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.

Liam & Anna Kilbridge, Ivybridge

"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".



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"


Wedding, Croyde

Ben Burgess

"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".



Paul and Jayne Clemence

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. We would support wholeheartedly  Hollett electrical business and rate them very highly for a great service .


They delivered everything we asked for and more.



Laura Vallance

Thank you for the great service you provided. The generator arrived early and was picked up on time. Good communication on the day of delivery with regards to timings.



Alex Manuel

Everything was perfect, very helpful and an efficient company to work with. Excellent quality equipment and very friendly staff who made our wedding run very smoothly. Thank you again from Alex & Paul
