Cycle to Work Scheme

Cycle to Work Scheme

Trans-Sport.tv are pleased to announce we have launched our ‘Cycle to Work’ scheme this month.


‘Cycle to Work’ is a Government initiative that offers employees who wish to cycle to work the opportunity to get a new bike, tax-free. It’s designed to encourage people to get active, try alternative travel and reduce pollution. By making it easier and more appealing for our employees to live healthier lives.

We are working with ‘Cyclescheme’, the UK’s number one provider of the Government’s Green Transport Plan Initiative, which is partnered with over 2,000 bike shops.

This is a great offer, as you can see our MD, Shaun is already making the most of his new bicycle.

National Rigging Certificate


In 2007 PLASA launched the National Rigging Certificate, the aim of this accreditation is to bring a national standard to the entertainment rigging community. Fast-forward 5 years and Trans-Sport have 7 (and counting) qualified Level 2 riggers. Trans-Sport decided to make the commitment to the NRC early on with MD Shaun Cope first to achieve the Level 3 qualification, he felt that in order to maintain Trans-Sport’s commitment to safety it was tailor made for the firm.

The company has a good working relationship with UK Rigging having a policy to send new and experienced members of staff to the Bolton site in order to gain experience and knowledge from one of the industry experts; therefore it seemed a simple choice to be assessed at the UK Rigging site in Bolton.

Trans-Sport have also set up an in house training area and regularly conduct Tool Box Talks demonstrating new rigging equipment and techniques to ensure everyone working within the Company has a comprehensive knowledge and set of skills regardless of NRC status. It is the Company’s intention is for 100% of Trans-Sport rigging staff to attain Level 2 with a natural progression to Level 3 accreditation. Trans-Sport feels the NRC process allows individuals to be assessed externally, benchmarking themselves against industry standards and is committed to support staff throughout the scheme. For more information and details of our qualified Riggers follow the link below and search for Nottinghamshire in ‘County’. http://www.plasa.org/nrcqualifiedriggers

LTM and LoadGuards for Trans-Sport Hire Fleet


Trans-Sport Ltd have been investing heavily in the future of the company. Working globally in the TV and Live Media events industries, the decision was made to increase the size of their chain hoist stock and having dealt with entertainment rigging supplier Lift Turn Move since 2005, when it came to making a decision on new hoists MD Shaun Cope went straight to LTM: “LTM offered us the LoadGuard but we’d never used them before, so Dan put a hoist in the back of his car and drove over to the warehouse and gave us a demo.” LTM have been supplying LoadGuard hoists into the entertainment industry for nearly four years now, and Trans-Sport Ltd were quick to see the benefits of them and placed an order for 50 units. Shaun continued: “The LoadGuard is ideal for us. They are small, sturdy, quiet and compact. They’re also lighter than other hoists that we’ve used which is better for the crew and they’re easy to maintain, so the guys love them. We are very pleased with the LoadGuards; our customers can see that we’re investing in high quality and reliable products, so as well as growing the company we’re growing our reputation in the industry.”

Trans-Sport Teams Up With IVECO


In order to comply with the Low Emission regulations in London and other major European cities such as Berlin, Trans-Sport have purchased 3 new rigid vehicles from Sherwood Truck and Van based in Sheffield. The firm chose to deal with IVECO due to their good after sales service and also being able to provide a tailor made vehicle which suits the unusual nature of Trans-Sports events. In order to serve the media and television industry in the most efficient and cost effective way Trans-Sport had very specific requirements leading to them requesting and ordering 3 completely different vehicles. The first vehicle was a 7.5t rigid box van, ordered with a 23ft body and day cab in order to deliver a large but light load, equipped with a column tail-lift allowing safe loading and unloading in tight loading bays.

The second vehicle was an 18t rigid flatbed truck. This truck was again ordered with a day cab in order to optimise the maximum length allowed for rigid vehicles allowing long loads. The truck has been designed to carry modular structures such as the now infamous BBC Bubble Studio. The third vehicle was an 18t box vehicle specifically ordered and designed for the longer trips around Europe, this truck is equipped with a sleeper cab allowing the equipment to get to locations as quickly as possible whilst also providing maximum comfort for driver and travelling crew. All 3 vehicles are built to comply with Euro 5 Emission regulations and include the Eurotronic automatic gearbox. Although some drivers feel manual is best the team at Trans-Sport felt it important to progress with the technology available. The automatic box has improved fuel consumption, engine and clutch wear. Ultimately drivers and crew now feel it was the right move.
