Rigging is an important part of the relocation process for companies with large machinery and equipment. To safely and securely move industrial equipment that is heavy and oversized into your new location, you need to trust an expert. Rigging can be one of the most critical phases of a company’s relocation project.
An effective rigging team can execute the full scope of the project by understanding the nature of the equipment, developing a comprehensive move plan, and carrying out correct safety practices. It is also important that they have a firm knowledge of permitting and zoning requirements.
Things to look for when hiring a rigging company:
- Do they have the appropriate equipment and skilled workers? The best riggers take advantage of technology to maintain superior performance.
- Do they have experience? Moving industrial equipment takes preparation; the machine must be measured, weighed, and analyzed before being lifted.
- Rigging is highly technical work, so ensure that the company has qualified, trained workers with the correct insurance coverage.
