What to consider when purchasing a portable stage
First, think about the maximum sized event you’ll hold, and select a stage that would be suitable for that. Then consider:
- How big your audience will be
- Your load rating requirements. For example, do you have lots of audio and lighting? Is your set up complex?
- Optional equipment, including extra accessories and replacement parts
- What vehicle you will use to tow the stage. You’ll need no less than an F-350 or equivalent, depending on the stage you choose

Mobile hydraulic stages vs. modular stages
The stages we sell at Apex are mobile hydraulic stages. You’ll also find them called portable concert stages or portable stage trailers. They all mean the same thing – they’re one single hydraulic stage unit on wheels that can be attached to a truck. They don’t require extensive installation, they’re efficient to build, and they’re retractable.
You’ll also come across portable modular stages. We don’t sell these at Apex. These types of stages have to be fitted together piece by piece in small sections – like the ones you commonly see at small graduation ceremonies. They’re a flat stage surface that are quite labor intensive to build.
