I’ve been in the motion picture industry for over twenty years, and out of all the cart manufacturers, Studio Carts have been single handedly the most functional and desirable carts in my experience. They pass every test with flying colors, from mobility and load capacity all the way to looks and customization possibilities. The guys there at Studio Carts know their craft and each cart they create has always been a hit between me and all of my clients. I now only buy carts from them because they are simply the best.

My name is Paul Monroe, I am an IATSE 728 Gaffer and owner of Slik Lighting.
I work on features, commercials, interviews, music videos, etc and I love my job and plan to focus on the art of Lighting for the rest of my career.
My team and I are always trying to find ways to make our jobs easier and more efficient, which is why I bought the the Studio Seven Crate Cart from Studio Carts/Concept Lighting. This one cart has made a huge difference in the workflow for my team. I keep all of my tools, expendables, gels, practical globes, Duv, black wrap, electrical connectors, personal items, dimmers and my flickerbox in the cart and on the move with ease.
This cart is bad ass and makes me feel more professional because of how easy it is to bring my essential Gaffer Kit with me on wheels.
I am slowly buying all of my carts from Studio Carts because when you compare them side by side with similar carts there is No comparison. Quality counts in front of the camera and also behind it.

A SPECIAL THANKS
Pedro Castex and Robert Guzman have designed and built what I can only call a brilliant and well thought out trailer . I was presented with a couple of ideas that made sense to me so we agreed to go forward. The result I believe speaks for itself. I am very happy with the interior design of my trailer. In the 30 plus years in the Entertainment industry I based my idea for the trailer off of other trailers that were in use out on the road. Robert and his team took the approach that a simply laid out trailer would give my guys the most organization and ease of inventory access. Today it is a must to be clean and organized with the amount of competition out there. Again the guys at STUDIO CARTS really understood this and executed flawlessly. I would recommend this company to anyone. They are also the people who built all of my rigging carts. Most of which are custom designed.
Thank you again

I have known Robert before I started my photography equipment rental company Black Solid, Inc. more than a decade ago. I have been really impressed with the knowledge and the help he has provided me all these years. The carts I have bought from Studio Carts are built to last and they were custom built. Because of the great cart building skills I decided to let Studio Carts build the custom racks in our Sprinter vans. I did spend a lot of time discussing and modifying the racks. With the expertise of Robert and his crew the racks turned out great. Everyone who has used our Sprinters are amazed and compliment us on how well the racks are built and anyone can find anything at one glance. I have even received calls from out of state clients complimenting about the way the racks are built and they want to know where the racks were build. I always tell them if you want the best custom built racks and carts call Studio Carts.
I have been vary happy with the carts and racks built by Studio Carts. I have not had any issues so far. Their quality is the best!!!

My name is Fabian Muga. I’m a Gaffer with over 20 years of experience in the Print, Film & Television Industry. I’m also the sole owner of FM Grip & Lighting, Inc. From experience, I know that having the right equipment is a Top priority.When it was time to purchase a new Head Cart, I knew who to call: Pedro at Studio Carts. I’m extremely impressed with the design and durability of the cart. It’s built tough and very well balanced. It
can fit through any standard doorway but still big enough to carry my M90s. Whether I’m working on top of a mountain or on a location in Downtown LA, I can rely on this cart to carry the load. I look forward to purchasing all of my future carts at Studio Carts!
“I have to say when I first started wrapping my head around buying new carts for the shop and for our grip trucks I thought that it would be a breeze. Boy was I wrong – dead wrong. There are a handful of manufacturers out there that produce set carts for a multitude of departments and each one touts themselves as being numero uno, that is simply not the case. The clear choice is Alden, Robert & Pedro at Studio Carts. Their Service is second to none & their ability and willingness to adapt to our specific needs is mirrored by no one else, moreover their craftsmanship is reasonably priced. They take care of us and have our inventory on warranty – it only makes sense to choose Studio Carts. Not to mention that they are perfectly located in Sun Valley & right off of the 5 Freeway if Alden can’t swing the delivery. We have more shopping to do – we are far from over & it’s also about that time for them to rack and shelf out a grip truck or two for us…..”

This cart is a dream!
Custom colored for me and delivered as promised and on time. The quality is top notch all the way. High quality welds, smooth finish work and great quality control make this one on the finest carts I’ve purchased for my 48′ Electrical Production Trailer.
After purchasing “Inferior carts” for years, the thought, design, quality and customer service is second to none. Robert at Studio Carts has earned all my business from now on!

When it was time to rack up my Van, I was dumbfounded by the few companies that actually do this kind of work. When I found out the guys at Studiocarts also racked up vans, I took notice and glad that I did. At the end of the job, I was at awe with the final product, the craftsmanship, detail and perfection. Keep in mind that this whole project was just a visual image in my brain; so how do I bring it to life ? Well knowing that I am hard head to work with, I was impressed with the patience and guidance I got from Robert; mapped out the type of equipment I wanted to carry on my van and to somehow utilize every square inch at our disposal. These guys were incredible, yeah it was an expensive undertaking but well worth it.

We have an assortment of Studiocart Products at our stage. My crews and I agree that our tasks have been made easier. When space and mobility are a factor, carts that function are true logistical collaborators. Reducing set up time and breakdown time, make these carts a true asset to our operations.
