Off-site transportation
If necessary available to transport equipment to campsite.

If necessary, since at the last event transports like these were just handled by villages themselves. If there is no need for this service this team will not be activated, however if there is a need for this, one or more small trucks will be rented and can be used to transport needed equipment and materials to and from the campsite when the buildup starts and possibly from the campsite during teardown.

Team Members


To reduce the total amount of kilometers to be driven and the amount of vehicles rented by the organization. This team provides off-site transport to and from the event for other orga teams. We have 'kavbusjes with lifting platform' so pallets and carts can be transported.

Volunteer drivers and copilots needed

Want to go on a roadtrip through the Netherlands before or after the event and help make it happen without missing any of the main action? Are you an experienced, reasonable and defensive driver that can safely drive a loaded truck with a car license? Or a motivated copilot to handle navigation and communication while on the road? Or a team of both? We'd love to have you!

If you want to help out please contact User:Stitch or anybody else from this team. We need your help before and after the event. You don't have to be there during the whole buildup or teardown, you can do just one but also multiple tours, depending on when you have time.

Requesting transport

  • If your payload is small enough to be transported in a private car that is driving anyway and has space, prefer this option.
  • Driving around in a truck is expensive. If you need something transported from far away (e.g. outside the Netherlands), a private courier (shipping) is more economical.
  • Every pickup location costs additional time and our volunteers' time is precious. Try batching your payload with other teams if possible (e.g. at a Hackerspace). If your item is not too big and <30kg, consider just mailing it at a nearby post office.
  • We operate efficiently by batching requests. Please be as flexible as possible with regards to pickup and drop-off dates and times.
  • To make pickup and return efficient, please have a person waiting for our drivers. We will call them some time before to make sure they didn't forget about us. Alternatively, have detailed pickup instructions and give us keys before the event.
