What is machine moving and rigging?
Rigging is the process of lifting, relocating, or moving equipment with specialized tools. Rigging is how machines are safely and properly moved from one place to another. This process typically employs tools such as porta powers, jacks, skates, shackles, slings, turnbuckles, wire rope, chains, and chain hoists. With the aid of forklifts, tractor trailers, and cranes, we do the heavy lifting so you don’t have to.
Do you have the necessary certifications and licenses for machine moving and rigging?
Yes, we do have all the necessary certifications and licenses for all the services we provide, including machine moving and rigging. You can trust that the job will be completed in accordance with Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) standards at all times. All our riggers are at least OSHA 10, and all have forklift licenses as well as specialties in areas such as elevated work, confined space, and fall protection. Even our office personnel carry these certifications, ensuring that no one is put in a dangerous position.
Can you handle the relocation of large-scale industrial equipment?
Yes, we can absolutely handle the relocation of large-scale industrial equipment. We have the expertise and equipment necessary to handle projects on both national and global scale. We offer full-service solutions from small-machine shops requiring forklifts to large crane projects. For example, we recently moved delicate lab equipment weighing only about 40 lbs. and in that same week, we relocated a piece that weighed 230,000 lbs.
How long does a typical machine moving and rigging project take?
The answer to this question really depends on the scope of your project. Are we talking about the simple transportation of one piece of equipment or are we talking about the relocation of an entire plant? So, the timeline of a rigging project varies as it’s dependent on what the project is. But rest assured our end-to-end project management team can offer thorough planning and execution strategies that can have your project run smoothly and efficiently.
