Stagefreight, a leading specialist in event transportation, has bolstered its fleet with the addition of 20 S.BO EXPRESS trailers from Schmitz Cargobull.

The new trailers join the company's 134-strong fleet, which already includes 15 S.BO EXPRESS dry freight boxes sourced from Schmitz Cargobull in the past year.

With a diverse portfolio of clients ranging from theatre, TV, and film productions to music tours, conferences, and exhibitions across the UK, Europe, and beyond, Stagefreight relies on reliable and robust trailers to transport event, staging, and audio-visual equipment.

Ian Uttley, director of Stagefreight, said: ““We do everything from the Royal Ballet to Peppa Pig and have delivered musical instruments and equipment to European venues for big bands such as Coldplay and Metallica. We have supplied equipment for events staged in places as far as Marrakech, the Canary Islands and even the Arctic Circle. The S.BO EXPRESS is a fantastically robust trailer that will serve us well for many years. It’s also easy to repair and parts are readily available. The whole package from Schmitz Cargobull really works for us.”

Uttley praises the S.BO EXPRESS trailers for their durability, highlighting that they are built to withstand the demands of their work for many years. He also appreciates the ease of repair and the availability of parts, contributing to the trailers' reliability and cost-effectiveness in the long run.

“When travelling long distances, we always look to maximise capacity, loading them as much as we can. The trailers offer plenty of good tie-off points and load securing rails to ensure the stability of goods in transport,” Uttley added

Having accumulated over 25 years of experience in event transportation, Stagefreight has diversified in the pandemic and has introduced refrigerated transport and general haulage to its fleet.
