Exhibition Transport, Storage & Logistics
Let Fishers take the stress out of your event with our expert exhibition services. From picking up your goods directly from your premises, packaging them for the move, transporting them to the exhibition venue and unloading at the other end, we can take the worry out of managing event logistics in the UK, Europe and even further afield.
Whether you're an exhibition organiser, exhibitor or stand builder, we work closely with you to determine exactly what you need and provide a specialist logistics service, ensuring everything runs smoothly right up to the day of the event.
Venue space and time is getting more expensive year by year, as a result Fishers have tailored our services to save you and your exhibitors time, space and hassle. We specialise in keeping your materials off the venue floor until they are needed and getting them to the right place at the right time. We will collect from any location whether that’s a self store in Edinburgh, a converted mill in Yorkshire or the 100th floor of an office in Canary Wharf. When loading we will group your items according to their delivery locations and the time they’re required, for example you’ll probably need your laptops, printers and boxes of high viz etc from the moment you walk into the organisers office but the literature for your feature areas doesn’t need kicking around the hall by a stand builder while the stand is assembled.
Our off-site packaging storage means aisles can be continuously cleared of pallets and empty boxes during buildup reducing delays in laying aisle carpets, and making the floor managers life much simpler. Familiarity with most shell scheme and space only contractors means they will approach us to clear areas or delay a delivery by 5 minutes to allow a critical action to occur with no interference. We all have a job to do and we find consideration and professionalism allow smoother build and breakdown periods.
We are well known by traffic management teams and work closely with them to minimise our vehicle movements and where possible keep the site clear of our trucks while smaller contractors and stand-holders get their goods in and out. All of our team are first aid and forklift trained and are personable people who are pleasant to work alongside. Their prime focus is making your event run as smoothly as possible. Our stock replenishment service reduces the need for store cupboards and movement of materials during event open periods and can be tailored to schedule deliveries entirely outside visitor and delegate access times, resulting in a seamless services that never reveals the effort involved.
Logistics Exhibition Service
We know how hectic things can be in the run-up to an exhibition, so we combine smaller deliveries into larger vehicles wherever possible. This dramatically reduces traffic during build-up and break-down periods (one truckload can equal fifteen car loads), making life much simpler for traffic and security operations on the exhibition site.
Based in the UK, we often give our customers our drivers' mobile telephone numbers so they can stay in touch throughout the run-up to a show opening. In what can be a very pressured time, our business customers know exactly where in the UK their load is, what time it will arrive at the venue, and can inform our drivers of any last-minute changes at the venue.
Transport Exhibition Service
We can handle any type of product – from documents to furniture to wedding dresses or complete stands – and adapt our transport to ensure it arrives in the best possible condition. Our vehicles are fitted with hanging garment rails to ensure your garments get to the exhibition in exactly the same condition they left you.
If specialist exhibition transport is needed, we can cater for that too. Our vehicles all come with tail-lifts for easy unloading and reloading at the exhibition venue – important when many businesses are trying to unload at the same time. We can also provide a fork-lift truck and driver if required.
Whether you need your goods in place on an exhibition stand or whether you need furniture and delegate packs for a conference, we will make sure they arrive punctually.
Storage Exhibition Service
Before and after the exhibition, we offer a hassle-free storage service for your goods and packaging.
Empty Packaging - We can collect any empty packaging from stands during the build up for exhibitors or stand builders and store for the duration of the event. At the end of the event Fishers would return the empty packaging to your stand. This keeps aisles clear and maximises display space.
Stock Replenishment – As space can be at a premium we can offer storage of any excess stock and arrange a daily delivery to your stand. At the end of the event we would deliver the remaining stock back to the stand.
Commercial Storage – We can store your goods, stand or display at the end of the event and deliver it on to next the event when it is needed. This helps free up the endless office space and meeting rooms which can used to store marketing material.
