We’ve had a little flurry of activity recently in the world of woodworking as two local companies contracted us in to carry out some machinery moves for them.
One client has expanded operations at their current site but needed 4 machines purchased online to be collected, delivered and lifted into the factory using our hiab crane.
The 4 machines weighing somewhere between 500kg to 1400kg were loaded onto one of our 18t rigid trucks by the used machinery supplier in Yorkshire and brought down to West Sussex. We were able to tie the run down from Yorkshire in with a run up to Scotland – great news for both clients as savings were made on both journeys.
When the vehicle arrived in West Sussex one of our hiab cranes was on hand to lift off and place the machines down safely just inside the factory door for the team to move into position.
The second client who has seen a large increase in demand for its products during the boom in extensions and house renovations asked us to help move part of there operation to a newly refurbished second site. Again a combination of hiab crane lorry loaders and rigid vehicles were able to make the machinery moves quickly and efficiently. Minimising downtime for the client.
Needless to say, our planners and our marketing team have learnt a little more about how many types of industrial machine there are for the art of woodworking.
