I've heard that Sainsburys and Tescos hire out glasses for free, as long as they are all returned in one piece. Has anybody looked into this? Or better yet, does anybody work at the superstores and know more about it?

Your help much appreciated tongue.gif

I heard that you have to put a deposit down on each crate of glasses, but as long as you return them, you get it back, and even if a few glasses are broken/missing, they only deduct a few pennys per glass from your deposit!

But wanted some confirmation?!!!

we have hired glasses from tesco for work things, you pay a deposit which you get back when you return them minus any breakages - I think you can also pay extra to take them back dirty - as i didnt do the hiring personnally dont know much more sorry huh.gif
