I can rent trucks from a lot of people. Trucks and tractors are the easy part. What sets Upstaging apart from the competition is the unparalleled people that make up Upstaging. The drivers, operations staff and front office is what makes Upstaging the class of the industry in both logistics and the condition of their trucks. No one in the trucking industry offers better support or equipment

Jimmy Pettinato,

Production Manager

I’ve been working for Upstaging for a little over 7 years. It has been quite enjoyable working here. It’s not every day you get to use great equipment, that keeps up in great shape. You get to travel all 48 states and a lot of Canada. There is time to investigate the cities you are in usually. Some of us bring our bikes. You can always find a bike trail to ride. We got some really good benefits and the pay is really good. The office staff is great. They are just a phone call away if you need help. Overall in 43 years of driving this is the best company I’ve had the pleasure to work for.

I have worked with many great people at Upstaging. It feels great to get to the venue and be a part of something so much bigger than myself. When I see the stage all ready to go, I know I had a small, but important part of making it happen. Being a driver has its challenges, but it’s very satisfying. Our support staff does a great job taking care of us on the road. Our equipment is top of the line, and it’s a pleasure to drive a truck and not have to worry about breakdowns. I have been touring for almost 20 years. I wouldn’t want to do it for anyone else!
