Film Set Transport and Logistics Services

When choosing a film transport and logistics company for your project, you need to ensure you’ll be working with a team that understands the nature of the job – the antisocial hours, fragile and luxury freight, personnel requirements, and those urgent collections and deliveries that are required at short notice with no room for error. Film schedules can change rapidly due to weather conditions or the unavailability of key actors, so the production and transport departments will be relying on a company that won’t let them down. 

GT Film Transport Ltd is the company you need. We are an experienced film logistics company covering London and the surrounding areas, specialising in film, TV, prop, and costume transportation services.

Film Logistics

We understand the need for professionalism and competence, and we deliver it every time. Our experienced staff prides themselves on their reactive expertise, along with their ability to work unusual hours whilst under pressure due to tight and demanding schedules. 

Our drivers carry appropriate HGV licences and have been CFB checked. We also have goods-in-transit insurance for conducting our film set transport services, and the relevant documentation is available should any client wish to view it.

Pick-up and collection services during each of these routes are not a problem. We can provide location support for many of our clients, offering a range of unit vehicles, 3.5-tonne vans and 4x4s to ensure the day-to-day running of the film set and base goes smoothly. 

We tailor our schedules to suit our clients, and our drivers remain with their vehicles at all times in case they are required at short notice. We’re also on hand to deliver tower lights, generators and gators to any location.

Luxury Toilet Hire

GT Film Transport offers a range of solutions for on-set toilet facilities with standard honey wagons and portable amenities. We also have luxury mobile toilet facilities; these 4-bay honey wagons are suitable for both studio and location settings and marked with appropriate plaques to indicate their potential usage – adults, children, men or women, for example.   

Our eco-friendly luxury toilets are made from recycled materials and use solar panels for energy, allowing them to run independently if necessary.

Waste Collections

As part of our film logistics services, we also take care of all waste collections and disposal. We’ll position bins on film sets and bases to collect all rubbish, including food, on a daily or weekly basis. The waste is delivered to zero landfill recycling centres in order to maintain our eco-friendly pledge and reduce our carbon footprint.

Our company also supports albert, an environmental organisation which aims to reduce waste within the TV and film production services by improving their carbon footprint. The system originated at the BBC in 2011 and was adopted by BAFTA.

Gully Sucking

It may not be the most glamorous part of the film industry, but we provide this necessary wet waste service nationwide 24/7. Our fleet of tankers is capable of emptying all the relevant facilities on site, including honey wagons, artists’ and support trailers. Regardless of their position, this service can remove a trailer’s wet waste from awkward angles or inaccessible places.

Motor Home Hire

Our Winnebago Minnie Winnies are available for both short- and long-term hire, with or without an attendant. These motor homes have a variety of uses, including the following:

  • Artist Greenrooms

  • Changing Facilities

  • Children’s Classrooms

  • Covid-19 Temperature Check Areas

  • Make-Up Studios
