Short Term Hire forklift centre stage at Top Gun: Maverick Premiere

At the recent London premiere for Tom Cruise’s new Top Gun: Maverick film, you might have noticed a replica Typhoon fighter jet (pictured right) stationed in Leicester Square as part of the set up. However, you might not have realised that short term hire equipment hired from Briggs played a key role in setting up the fighter jet and ensuring that the intricate display set up correctly ahead of the West-End unveiling.

The Hyster 5 tonne truck was identified by the Short Term Hire Team as the perfect solution for the requirements and it was delivered to event specialists CEVA ahead of the premiere.

Kate Buckley, Briggs Equipment’s Short Term Hire Manager, commented: “We are fortunate to get involved with lots of exciting projects, but to be involved with one of this year’s biggest movie premieres was especially exciting.

“Our team prides itself on meeting the expectations of our customers and this was no different. We were able to identify the appropriate equipment and deliver it on time directly to the Leicester Square site.

“With events and exhibitions back on the calendar after a long hiatus due to COVID, we are actively involved in some of the UK’s biggest events at the most recognisable venues. It’s been a busy year for the team so far and we are looking forward to the summer months where our activity will continue to increase.”
