  • ferry sailing schedules
  • visa requirements
  • tachograph legislation 

Drivers who go the extra mile

Our experienced, enthusiastic and committed drivers are a key reason why major artists return to us again and again.

They are experts at accessing difficult venue load-ins. They will pack your equipment into the trucks quickly and securely, utilising all load capacity. And they understand the need to work as a team with other members of your crew.

The highest of standards

All Fly By Nite trucks are maintained by our 10-strong workshop team to the highest of standards both visually and mechanically.

Our trucks are a minimum of Euro 4 rated and compliant with the strictest European city emission regulations. This keeps our own carbon footprint down and our sustainability up.

Let Fly By Nite take care of:

  • supplier collections
  • truck space allocations
  • parking
  • venue access

20 years of experience

We’ll use 20 years’ knowledge of locations and venues to anticipate and deal with logistical issues, leaving you free to focus on organising the perfect event.

Having delivered your equipment safely and on time, our professional-looking driver and immaculately maintained truck won’t look out of place even at the smartest hotels.

And if you need a working driver to get stuck in and provide an extra pair of hands, just let us know.

Exhibition & Promotion

Some of the most versatile exhibition vehicles available.

Our mini-artics and full-size trailers are used for prestigious and high-profile mobile promotions all across Europe.

  • motoring events
  • music festivals
  • concerts
  • football matches
  • horse and dog shows
  • shopping centre promotions

Some vehicles have extendable slide-out sides. All of the trailers have fold out stages with wheelchair access, air-conditioning, lighting and the facility for hot and cold water. We also provide silent, in-built generators and landlines for 240 volt or 110 volt mains power.

Simple logos through to ‘shrink-wrapped’ vehicles

If you need to merchandise the vehicles and trailers with your own corporate identity, no problem. We can organise anything from a simple logo right through to a special ‘shrink-wrap’ that covers the entire vehicle.

Working driver

All Fly By Nite trailers are accompanied by a working driver who will set the trailers up and monitor the equipment during each event.

Theatre

Our reputation was originally forged in the music industry. We are now one of the most experienced haulage companies for touring theatrical productions.

Fly By Nite’s central West Midlands site, with a huge storage facility, means we are ideally placed to reach virtually any UK location in one drive.

We operate a full range of vehicles, from single vans through to a fleet of Megacube trucks. There are even extra-height trucks to accommodate larger theatrical set pieces.

We are as passionate about what we do as any theatre company is about their own production. Let us prove it to you.

Warehouse & Storage

Our recent, major investment in a brand new storage area offering individually secured cages for backline equipment in a temperature-controlled environment, is typical of Fly By Nite’s commitment to staying ahead of the competition.

Add this to the separate backline test areas where your own technicians can prepare and test your equipment before your tour begins, and you’ll see that we offer the complete warehouse service for touring bands and companies.

Stage-set warehouse

We store even the largest of stage-sets for any period of time in our dedicated set warehouse, which has a full back-up facility of fork-lift trucks and qualified drivers.

Huge theatre storage facility

Fly By Nite provide temperature-controlled storage for numerous operatic societies and theatrical companies’ sets and props. Sets and flats can be stored in a standing position up to a height of 6 metres with bespoke support frames if necessary.

Equipment loading

All equipment, stage-sets and props can be loaded and unloaded by our crew or yours – whichever works best for you. We do, however, require our own crew to provide supervision at all times, for insurance and security purposes.
