If you need to move heavy equipment to another site, lift an HVAC unit to the top of a building, or place precast concrete products for your project, it is crucial to ensure that the job is done right.

3 Steps for Industrial Moving Services

Industrial moving refers to the transportation, rigging, lifting, and placement of large equipment and other objects. Most lifts for industrial moving require the coordination of various services including crane rentals, specialized transportation vehicles, and rigging crews for placement of the load. An effective industrial moving service provider will coordinate each of these services to complete your project in a timely, efficient, and safe manner. The typical process for industrial moving includes the following steps:

1. Planning and Preparation

An industrial moving service provider will first create a plan and outline any preparation required for your project. This will ensure that the correct equipment is used to hoist the load and transport it, optimizing efficiency and safety.

2. Lifting and Securing the Load

Once a comprehensive lift plan has been created and site prep is completed, the load will be lifted, placed on a transportation vehicle, and secured to it. Most moving services are completed using a combination of mobile cranes, trucks, and flatbed trailers, though this can vary based on the load.

3. Transporting and Placing the Load

Once the load is secured to the vehicle, it will be transported to its destination and placed where it needs to be. The route for transportation will be planned out ahead of time to avoid any mishaps with issues like low bridges, overhangs, highway speeds, and other possible obstacles.

Preparing for Industrial Moving Services

You can prepare for industrial moving services by clearing the area around the items being moved to make room for hoists and trucks to access them. It is also a good idea to ensure that the items being transported are ready to be lifted. Be sure to communicate with your service provider to see if any other preparation needs to be completed for your project.
