Don’t Just Take Our Word For It


“Peace of Mind,” that is why I use Upstaging whenever possible.  Problems come up while on tour but Upstaging finds the solution most times before I ever knew there was a problem.  I never have to worry about border crossings, long drives or equipment.  Upstaging has the best people and equipment and with that comes my “Peace of Mind.” – Joel Forman, Bruno Mars


I remember the the first time that I used Upstaging, it was for an AC/DC Tour. Not sure of the year, maybe 1983. One of the main reasons I chose Upstaging was to get Robin Shaw to stop calling me every night, in the middle of the night, to see if I had made up my mind. Well, I did, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made.

From then until now I’ve seen the growth at Upstaging in both trucking and lighting. They’ve also added some set fabrication and a huge amount of storage. However, the one thing that has remained is the family vibe and the personal service that you don’t get from other companies.

So may your trucks never stop rolling and your light never grow dim. Thanks for everything these past 25 years or so, and in the future.” – Jake Berry, Madonna


Whether you need pre-production staging or post production storage, Upstaging can accommodate.  We have over 150,000 total square feet of storage within two facilities which are fully heated, have full firesystem protection, 24 hour video surveillance and building access security.
