Basil – Cater Hire Assistant

Basil is experienced in carefully packing small and large hire items. He is full of fun and knowledge. Our clients love him and other trucks want to be him. We can’t imagine Red Pepper Events & Cater Hire without him. In his spare time Basil can be found cruising around attracting attention. Basil is good for business.
