Mobile Stage Rentals – The Pros and Cons
Mobile stage rentals are a relatively new product on the staging market. A mobile stage works great for festivals requiring street closures or tight timelines. For one day events, they are typically about the same cost – or sometimes a little less expensive – than a load bearing stage and rooftop. However, for multi-day events, they can be significantly more pricey.
A mobile stage rental is pulled using either a heavy duty pickup or a tractor depending on the size of mobile stage. For this reason, mobile stages cannot be used on sensitive surfaces, such as football stadiums, baseball diamonds and City parks. They also will not work on areas with a significant grade.
The biggest advantage with a mobile stage is time of setup. They typically take about 4 -8 hours to setup, where a modular stage and roof system can take up to a day and a half. A mobile stage can also be easier to get permitted in major metropolitan areas.
