How to move heavy machinery & equipment

January 2022

So, you know that you need to move some heavy machinery and equipment either to or from your site. The big dilemma is ‘how?’.

Thankfully, professional heavy equipment movers like Flegg Projects can find the best solution for your specific business needs.

Understanding heavy machinery moving needs

When completing heavy machinery moving projects, it’s important to remember that no two projects are the same.

The job could involve a heavy or delicate piece of equipment moving within the same factory or an item being sent to a destination on the other side of the world. This could be a time-critical move, or the site could have restricted access and involve many different partners.



Whatever the requirement, the classification of what counts as “heavy” can vary from one company to the next. Here at Flegg Projects, we can lift loads of up to 125-tonnes and we have a wide range of machinery moving equipment to suit almost any need, including;

  • Counterbalance forklifts
  • Hiab vehicle-mounted cranes
  • Hydraulic gantry system
  • Versalifts
  • Cabin cruiser crane
  • Air skates
  • Ground moving tackle & lifting accessories
  • Articulated trailers with hydraulic loading ramps, rigid and drawbar vehicles with rear-mounted cranes, a range of tail lift, flatbed and panel vans
  • Bespoke equipment for more testing situations

From simple moves to extremely complex assignments, Flegg Projects will handle all aspects with care.
