Benefits of professional industrial equipment relocation services

With 35 years of industry experience, here at FESS, we know all there is to know about heavy machinery relocation.

So in this blog, our team thought they’d share some of their expertise on this topic, to give you a better understanding of the benefits of professional industrial equipment relocation.

What is industrial equipment relocation?

Industrial equipment relocation is simply the moving of heavy factory machinery from one location to another. That location could be some distance away, or it could be within the same factory setting (so required due to the re-configuring of a new layout).
It could be a short-term move to coincide with a seasonal increase in production or a permanent move.

The move might be required for additional space, for your product to be closer to its target market or to benefit from the attractions of a new environment.
As you can imagine, disassembling industrial equipment, safely moving and transporting it, and then reassembling it in a new location is a pretty hefty undertaking!

Which is where a specialist in heavy machinery relocation, like FESS, can support your business with every aspect of the move.

The benefits of using an expert for relocation

If you’ve decided on relocating your factory equipment, then you’ve no doubt come to that decision via a considerable thought process and cost/benefit/analysis. It is therefore prudent to think of the most cost effective way to move your heavy machinery – and that’s where an expert in relocation like FESS is worth their weight in gold. Here’s why:

What to consider when researching industrial equipment relocation

Take some time to research the kind of industrial equipment relocation service you will require. This is something we can certainly help with before you decide what is best for the needs of your business.

There are of course a number of variables which will affect the service you need: the size of the machinery; the inventory of equipment; and of course the type of equipment.

How industrial equipment is relocated

When you choose to relocate your heavy factory machinery, your relocation service provider will talk you through how your industrial equipment will be relocated, including a timeline for the relocation and how long the shutdown of the factory will be.

Your project planner will decide what will be required to disassemble and package the machinery and what transport will be needed to move it. They’ll then look at the logistics; so access for large vehicles, how the vehicle(s) will move through specific areas; and how many escort vehicles will be required.

Once at their new location, your specialist industrial equipment relocation service will reassemble the machinery and test it.
