Transport of Stage and Seating Hire: An Event Courier Case Study 

23rd May 2023 | by Sam Nardi

Transport of Stage and Seating Hire: An Event Courier Case Study 
Event logistics encompasses a multitude of factors such as finding a location, establishing a budget, setting the date, booking your venue, and of course, ensuring everything is where it needs to be when it needs to be! This is where Speedy Freight steps in. With our same day delivery servicing the events and festival sector, from corporate conferences to music festivals and comedy shows, we have logistics solutions for events of any size in any industry. In this case study, we look at the delivery of temporary stages and seating for our client who supplies these materials for events across the UK.


The Client 


Our client is a leading supplier of staging and seating solutions servicing the events sector. 

Their stage hire solutions offer temporary and custom indoor and outdoor staging solutions for events including music and comedy festivals, fashion shows, theatre performances, conferences and exhibitions, and production sets.  


The Consignment 


As suppliers of staging and seating hire of various sizes, they contacted our Speedy Freight team located in central London to help move a range of consignments across the UK. 

To transport their items, they’ve booked same day delivery and overnight delivery, to ensure their goods get where they need to be on time for their customers’ event.  

Some of the items we’ve delivered for our client include: 

  • Catwalks for fashion shows
  • Temporary staging for film and TV productions
  • Large outdoor festival staging and seating
  • Seating for private events, such as wedding and conferences
  • Tiered portable seating for sporting events
  • Small stages and seating for school performances

Our client has booked our same day delivery in advance and on a last-minute basis to deliver portable tiered seating and temporary structure solutions to events varying in location, size, and industry. We’ve used everything from a small van to an artic to deliver for our client.  

Thanks to our varied fleet of vehicles, we’re able to quickly get the vehicle our client needs in accordance with the weight and dimensions of their consignments and are able to quickly adapt to their changing needs from one booking to the next. 


The Challenges 


When it comes to delivering for the events sector, delivering to various locations across the UK, particularly with large vehicles such as artics, can be challenging. Finding a temporary outdoor event location and navigating through the location, particularly sprawled out festival locations, can be difficult.  

Thankfully, our drivers have a wealth of experience getting to and navigating event locations, both indoor and outdoor, to ensure that deliveries arrive exactly where they need to be to keep the show rolling. 

Even when given non-specific event locations during the booking process, our team’s expertise and communication with our client has resulted in a successful delivery every time. 


The Conclusion 


From navigating through the smallest streets of London to deliver to a small event venue, to delivering to remote event locations across the UK, our team have accomplished a multitude of jobs for our client, resulting in repeat bookings. 

Our same day, next day, and overnight delivery services available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, have led our client to trust us for the quick delivery of their staging and seating solutions to event venues across the UK.
