Our drivers can be trained with show-specific skills, to operate exhibition units or work as part of your team. Each driver will be dedicated to your conference or exhibition for the duration of the project. If the show involves several vehicles, or is spread across a long time period with breaks, we can train a core of show-specialist drivers to ensure cover at all times.
Pre-show scheduling service: we can plan your itinerary to cover all necessary destinations using the most time-effective route. This saves you money by keeping your hire period to a minimum.
Secure compound parking and warehousing are available at KB for safe secure storage of any set or production elements in between events; maintenance, refurbishment and pre-build areas are available as required.
For those that wish to make an extra impact; trucks and trailers can be liveried for your event.
Clients have the facility to monitor their vehicles down to street-map level using a satellite tracking system, via a password-protected secure website. Passwords are issued for the duration of a project; tracking is limited to the vehicles on that project.
We have vast experience of trucking music events, from festivals and concerts, to opera's and worldwide stadium tours.
Careful planning ensures that show schedules are met - we provide double and triple drivers where necessary.
