Machinery Relocations

As your industrial process outgrows your plant, it may become necessary to relocate machinery. Relocating machinery requires significant experience and state-of-the-art equipment. Lee Industrial Contracting has more than 30 years of experience in machinery relocation. From minor moves to a major relocation project, choose the industry-leaders for unparalleled results.

Equipment Required for Relocations

Your heavy-duty milling machines, CNC machines or other industrial process equipment require premier rigging services and state-of-the-art equipment. At Lee Industrial Contracting, we have the latest equipment necessary to rig, transport and install your industrial machinery.

Our extensive fleet of transportation vehicles, gantry systems and cranes are designed for industrial equipment of all sizes. The centerpiece of our entire fleet is a remote-controlled Goldhofer transportation module. This incredible machine has an impressive one million pound capacity.

Many other industrial rigging and relocation service providers have the experience but lack the extensive equipment necessary. These service providers have to rent equipment and rely on third-party companies, which translates to increased costs and the likelihood of a delayed schedule.

Outsourcing your project to multiple companies can create a logistical headache. Instead, hiring a turn-key service provider who combines them all in a single experienced team. Work with an experienced company that can handle all aspects of your project without damaging your equipment, creating a safety hazard or slowing down your timeline.

Accelerated Scheduling Strategies

Downtime is a major factor in considering relocation services. Too many services require extensive timelines, experience frequent delays and can cause your plant excessive costs in terms of downtime. Our team operates efficiently as a single unit to speed up the process and safely move your equipment without experiencing significant downtime.

Part of our strategy is full in-house operations. We own our equipment and have a team of expert engineers and technicians trained in a number of industrial services including:

Our team can handle virtually any unforeseen step in the process of preparing your machinery, loading it on our transportation systems, preparing the foundation at your new location and safely installing your machinery.

Before you move your equipment to a new location, it’s important to have the foundation, electrical and mechanical components thoroughly inspected and verified. A foundation that isn’t prepared to handle a new piece of equipment can become compromised and crack, which puts your machinery and employees in danger.

Part of our accelerated scheduling strategy is complete personalization. No two situations are exactly the same when it comes to industrial equipment relocation. Our team inspects your equipment and relocation needs, draws up a plan and thoroughly discusses it with you before implementing any step. We ensure you’re up-to-date throughout the process so no additional fees or delayed timelines cause you surprise, concern or alter your plans.

Equipment Moving

Relocation is a natural aspect of a growing and successful business. However, when it comes to heavy equipment relocation, the challenges can become complex. When tasked with moving massive pieces of machinery, many of which entail complex electrical connections and complicated assembly, the process becomes difficult. Securing safe and efficient heavy equipment moving with a qualified and experienced machine rigger is a vital part of determining which contractor to hire. At Lee Contracting, we are leaders in providing turnkey solutions for heavy equipment moving. We are skilled at infrastructure upgrades, loading and unloading, transportation, and many other services essential to a successful relocation of your facility.

Varied Skillset

There are many components to a heavy equipment move. Of course, you want to rest assured that a company has knowledge of transporting large pieces of equipment, but the movers you choose should also bring a lot more to the table. For example, certain types of equipment will need to be dissembled and reassembled upon arrival at the new location. This requires a degree of mechanical knowledge and skill that not all moving companies possess. Electrical knowledge is also important, particularly when it comes to reconnecting equipment.

State-of-the-Art Equipment

Equipment Moving

A moving company must also be equipped with reliable and effective equipment. Because you’re bound to encounter a wide assortment items that need to be moved, having a variety of lifts with varying capacities is essential. The same can be said of transportation. Fleets should be able to perform a wide range of purposes, including pickups, semi-trucks, trailers, utility vehicles, and service trucks. Other vital equipment includes gantry cranes, generators, cleaning systems, and mobile offices to establish a base of operation.

Adherence to Deadlines

No two heavy equipment moves are the same. Anticipating potential problems before they occur allows us to devise workable solutions in real-time. This is a crucial aspect when it comes to timeliness and adherence to deadlines. Failing to get a facility up and running when scheduled or delaying the delivery of an important piece of equipment due to unforeseen issues, can cause costly unwanted downtime.

Safety

Among many of the other considerations, you want to be assured that your project is being completed with a team dedicated to safety. Our safety professionals work in close conjunction with field personnel. Safety programs should be ever-evolving and be communicated not only to staff but also customers. This keeps industrial moves safe, which benefits all.

Safe, Reliable, Efficient Heavy Equipment Moving 

Lee Industrial Contracting demonstrates all the above traits when undertaking industrial moves. That’s why we’ve earned the respect of peers and customers alike, which is evident when looking at our impressive listing of past projects. Additional services include industrial controls capabilities, robotics, press automation, roof-raising, and 24/7 emergency assistance in the event of a power outage.
