Are you bringing your next big movie or television project to the Los Angeles area? Your budget requires that you keep a close eye on costs, but for some film/studio services looking for a newbie to take care of the transportation of sets and equipment can end up costing you big time in the end. Phil's Transfer & Storage offers an easy and reliable option for your moving, storage, packing, and day labor needs. Our familiarity with the film industry makes us the right choice for so many reasons.
A Trusted Los Angeles Transportation Company with Current Contacts
Phil's Transfer & Storage has built a reputation within the industry as a fast, friendly, and prompt business ready to take care of moving your sets and all the peripherals that go with it. We are familiar with all the big studios, the local geography, and many of the supporting businesses that you will likely hire. Your production crew will not have to help us find our way or show us how it is done. We’ve got this, which means you are free to work through other move-related events that may arise on set.
Packing Up the Sets for Fast and Accurate Relocation
Are you moving from a closed set to location shots and need to recreate a set? Since Phil's understands what you need to be done, we will pack up each set, label every box and crate, and create an itemized inventory so that your crew can find what they require on the other end. We can also help you unload at the new place.
Are you going on hiatus and need the props and furniture stored? We maintain our own secure warehouse with monitored security. When the production is ready to get back to work, we can retrieve your set and unpack without delay.
Do you just need some extra muscle while rearranging the shoot? We have staff that is familiar with sets and will be able to provide a helping hand without getting underfoot.
Handling Your Sensitive Equipment with Care
Shooting a show or movie requires more than a living room complete with curtains, rugs, and knick-knacks. You also have lighting, rigging, screens, sound equipment, and a wealth of other items that are specific to the film industry. Our film/studio moving services include proper packing of all electronics, computers, cords, and clipboards. If you need temperature controlled storage for your sensitive items, we can take care of that detail.
Your set likely includes office trailers, too. Our commercial moving specialists are well-trained to breakdown desks, networks, and the working infrastructure needed to keep your life on schedule. Are you positioning trailers for the talent? Our truck drivers have current CDL licenses and are fully insured and are available to get everything in place before day one of the shoot.
An All-in-One Approach to Your Logistics Challenges
If you decide to take all your set transportation and moving needs one step at a time, you are going to be on the phone every week calling a separate storage facility, hiring day labor, digging through poorly labeled equipment and slowing down your shoot.
