 The Gasaway Company has successfully provided a variety of water services for many of the local and national production companies for more than 30 years! Hundreds of commercials, television shows and feature films (produced for both national and international clients) are shot in and around the Chicagoland area every year. Our highly trained drivers have an enormous amount of experience delivering water to unconventional and tight job sites –
there is no job too big or too small for us to handle!

Our water trucks range in volumes from 500 gallons to 5500 gallons per load, although we can accommodate nearly any special requirement! From making it rain for commercials to filling a pool with warm water for a magic act, there is no water job for your movie or film production that we cannot handle.  We have worked on Chicago Pd for NBC Universal, Commercials for Weathertech, Volvo, Sony, Mercedes Benz, Hertz-Captian Marvel etc.  Also available for rent are full sized municipal trucks, pick-up trucks,
skid-steer loaders, rubber tire loaders, snow plows and semi-tank trucks.
