As the home of the “Media District”, Burbank is no stranger to film, TV, and commercial productions. And of course, L.A. is the top city in the world for film shoots. This is why at 5 Star Truck Rental, we see many film crews renting passenger vans for film shoots in order to make transport easier.

Production crews contact us about our affordable prices for 12-passenger van rentals, 15-passenger van rentals, and moving trucks, which are perfect for moving set pieces and furniture from location to location in no time.

Any producer knows that arranging for the entire cast and crew to be where they’re supposed to be on time is like herding cats. For those dealing with this type of scheduling, a 15-passenger van rental can move a cast and/or crew around like a dream. Not only does it get principal people where they need to be all together, but passenger vans also help with parking situations—and in L.A., this is pretty important.

And sometimes a production needs a passenger van to move cast and crew outside the city, for example, Topanga, Big Bear, or Santa Barbara. In these cases, a passenger van is perfect because it not only ensures that everyone arrives together—it also allows the “family element” of a cast and crew to begin (or continue).

A 12-passenger or 15-passenger van is also great to cart around equipment since it’s roomy with plenty of space.

The bottom line? if you’re the one in charge of transportation for a film production, you should definitely contact our experts at 5 Star Truck Rental. We will get your cast and/or crew going with our excellent passenger vans. We proudly serve Burbank, Van Nuys, Los Angeles, and the surrounding areas.
