JT EventTruck specialises in event freight movements throughout the UK and Europe. Since 2009, our client base and vehicle fleet has grown steadily as a result of consistently exceptional service, investment in high-spec fleet, and long-standing loyalty – from our customers, and from our drivers.
Our project managers can work alongside your production team to establish the most appropriate itinerary, provide the vehicles best suited to your requirements, select your ideal drivers, and most importantly – get your cargo to the right place at the right time… Efficiently and cost effectively.
Through our UK & European network of contacts and service providers, we guarantee a level of reliability second to none – ensuring minimal disruption, maximising fleet efficiency, and maintaining consistency throughout your project. Our drivers are only as good as the trucks we give them… Which is why we continue to invest in a modern, efficient, and environmentally friendly fleet; all vehicles of all sizes – from 3T vans to 45ft artics – comply with Euro 4 Emissions Standards or better.
Our drivers are our front line, and our most valuable assets – being industry technicians they understand and respect the function, quality, and value of our customer’s products. Whether you are planning a small roadshow, or a four truck tour – we have the right driver to be your reliable and presentable personality on site.
- Summer on the road
Summer at JTHQ is spent managing a mixture of festival and exhibition contracts… Usually in the rain! However, 2015 saw us four-strong out in the Köln sun for Gamescom, three trucks at GAME Expo in Coventry, two up to Harrogate International Centre, and a few visits to BBC Glasgow… With only a hint of occasional dampness to grumble about. Also trundling around the continent enjoying the sunshine – one of our trademark “kebab” LoLoader vans spent July and August transporting backline throughout Europe for Joan Baez.
- Rolling into 2016
Three days into the New Year, and we’re already flat out. With vehicles in Munich, Paris, Amsterdam and Helsinki, the competition was fierce to capture the lowest temperature… Unsurprisingly, Helsinki won the battle with -21 degrees, and Robin was glad for his snow boots! Back in the UK, regulars DCLX filled a trailer bound for the NEC, we sent a four truck job into Hilton Park Lane’s notoriously low loading bay, and plentiful other valued customers came back to us once again to get their New Year gear from A to B. In fleet news – honouring our ongoing investment plan to run one of the cleanest and greenest fleets in the industry, we’ve got another 18T rigid on the way, another 12T, and plans for another 7.5T too – safe to say that January 2016 has been our busiest ever. Keep on truckin’, and check back soon for more news and pics of where we’ve been…
- Fleet update
In line with our dedication to an environmentally friendly operation, a Euro 6 investment plan is now well under way with the arrival of a new 18T rigid, and a new 38T tractor unit in the first quarter of 2015. Later this year will see the arrival of new 7.5T and 12T Euro 6 rigids, as we begin to phase out some of our older Euro 4 fleet in a bid to operate one of the greenest fleets in the events industry. Also coming this year to The JT EventTruck articulated division is a brand new Schmitz Opensider 45ft trailer, enabling us to continue offering our customers truly flexible solutions – suitable for transporting anything from custom bulky exhibition set pieces, to festival site generators and mains distribution – but with the security of a rigid box rather than a curtain side.
- Exhibition Project Management abroad? You got it!
JT EventTruck were commissioned to transport a complex exhibition build for a global airline company out to three venues in Italy, including a dedicated on-site support crew. In order to access the venues, a combination of two 18T rigids and one 3.5T van were dispatched from JTHQ for three weeks in May. All vehicles supplied included working tech-savvy drivers, who assisted with the load in and build days. JT EventTruck then supplied another two site crew to assist running the events themselves, and liaise with the end customer to ensure all snags and finishing touches associated with the stand build were taken care of. The project completed successfully, and conversations are already underway for another visit out to Spain later this year involving two trucks and a much larger team of eight crew… On our next outing we’ll endeavour to get some pictures, to show off how versatile the JT EventTruck driver team can be with a screwdriver and an air compressor!
