Emma Chapman – Transport Co-Ordinator

We have been working with Lays for the last few years. We work in different locations across the country, with time crucial hours of install and de-rigs. Lays constantly deliver in supporting MGN Events ensuring our equipment is where it needs to be on time, every time.
With the fleet of vehicles available and a team of professional drivers, no job is too small or big for Lays. It’s this reason Lays are our first point of call for transport.
If I had to pick one thing that stands out, it would be the friendly, helpful advice we can turn too when needed in planning our logistics.
We look forward to many more years working with Lays in supporting our events.
Neil – Production Director – MGN Events

Just wanted to say thank you for all the support you have shown me over the last 30 years.
I can be sure when I book a vehicle with your company that it is dealt with professionally, I do not need to worry and I am confident the job will be completed without another thought.
You have built up a good support team with your office staff and drivers, who are very loyal to you and understand the industry needs and how to do the job as it should be done.
In all honesty I don’t think there is a company in the film industry that can deal with the wide spectrum of logistical challenges that we give you on a daily basis, if we had to look for outside companies the prices would just not be comparable.
Phil Allchin – Transport Manager

Thanks for the last Five productions , All The Money In the World , Jurassic World , The Hustle , Lyrebird and His House , from London to Majorca , Tilbury to morocco and everything in-between all went so well I couldn’t have done it without Lays support and hard work.

Quentin Davies – Prop Master

Lays International provided us with everything we needed from the smallest luton to the largest Hiab. Their large selection of well maintained vehicles and their dedicated staff make them a pleasure to work with. The office staff maintained great communications throughout the job so I always felt informed and went out of their way to accommodate our production. The Drivers I had Andy Petry & Russel King did a fantastic job looking after the day to day running of the tech vehicles and helping with the departments needs. I recommend Lays International for every job.
