Stardes Fleet

Stardes boast one of the most up-to-date and reliable fleet of trucks and trailers in the business.

From small and nimble box vans to the largest articulated trailers in European entertainment logistics, Stardes have the ideal vehicle for your needs.

Stardes – Rigid Trucks

Our 26 ton rigid trucks are ideal for backline, and come with reliable and highly experienced drivers who know exactly what it takes to keep your tour running smoothly. These vehicles are also a popular choice with small productions and theatre tours, and are frequently chosen by exhibition and corporate event planners.

These powerful, high-specification trucks provide the latest refinements, are environmentally friendly, with air-ride suspension and improved driver comfort.

The perfect vehicle for:

• Carrying your own decks     • Monitor Systems     • Special Lighting Requirements

Stardes – Articulated Vehicles

Our low-ride articulated trucks and trailers are the largest vehicles in our fleet. The low-ride design offers greater internal capacity whilst remaining under the 4m overall height restriction imposed for international European transport.

Our ongoing fleet replacement programme ensures our tractor units are the most up-to-date, cleanest and greenest trucks available. We then have them upgraded further with blind-spot cameras for enhanced safety, plus TV/DVD screens, fridges, and microwaves for driver comfort.

All Stardes box trailers are insulated, to help protect valuable equipment from condensation, and each trailer comes complete with an externally stowed aluminium loading ramp, bright interior LED lighting, and a comprehensive load securing system of straps & shoring beams.

Flat Floor Mega Trailers

Stardes low-ride flat-floor trailers offer an internal height of 2900mm (9’6″) and width 2460mm (8’1″), giving an internal capcity of 98m³.

‘MegaMax’ Trailers

Stardes ‘MegaMax’ trailers are a low-ride stepframe trailer specifically developed for the entertainment industry. The internal width of 2460mm (8’1″) and height of 3070mm (10’1″) means these trailers allow 8’ riser boards to go side-by-side, and 3m trussing to stand on end. The internal capacity is a ‘true’ 101m³ – the largest possible for Pan-European road haulage.

Other trailer types, including conventional stepframe box, curtain-side and Euroliner trailers are available on request.


Stardes has a comprehensively equipped 5 bay workshop, and a team of highly experienced technicians who maintain our fleet to exacting standards, exceeding all manufacturers and statutory requirements. A fleet engineer is on call 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, to ensure vehicle performance and reliability.
