Our turnkey service is ready to meet your needs whether you need a single machine moving or you are planning a full site move.
At Flegg Projects, we understand that every project brings a lot of potential challenges, and any errors could be costly to your business, causing major disruption. Our entire business model is built around a lean solution that never compromises on time, safety or efficiency.
That’s why we work closely with our clients to plan and execute the move to reduce disruption as much as possible and ensure safety is a top priority.
All of our projects are planned to ensure maximum efficiency and by using the very latest equipment and technology we can maintain a high level of safety for each project.
Our skilled and experienced team of machinery movers have worked on a variety of projects running from factory relocations, medical equipment transportations and more. No matter the challenge or obstacle, we are equipped to deal with anything that could arise during the moving process.
Typically, challenges associated with lifting and moving industrial machinery and heavy equipment are:
Traditionally, some of the biggest challenges with machinery transportation are centred around a lack of understanding of the task at hand. The complexity of the task is determined by the range of commercial and operational risks involved. A professional will be able to assess the task down to the finest detail, and prepare for those risks, prioritising safety and the status of your equipment.
Alignment is going to be key when hiring machinery movers, but this goes hand in hand with planning. Use the planning stage to fully establish the alignment process, which involves ensuring your machinery and equipment arrives on time and in good health. This considers a range of factors especially in this post-Brexit, post-pandemic landscape we find ourselves in.
The issues and risks that come as a result of poor logistics can massively impact your bottom line, as well as putting your machinery at risk. Rising costs are a big contributor to those challenges, particularly with international movement.
For each machinery move, our expert team will undertake the following specific steps:
Recognise priorities and concerns
At the beginning of each project, we will discuss the client’s needs and establish key milestones that must be achieved.
Review the size and weight of machinery
This is vital because it will allow us to determine which piece of specialist, state of the art equipment we will need to use. Once our team has carried out their assessment, we will select the appropriate equipment and transport it to your site, ready to move your machinery.
Identify any potential hazards that could cause disruption and delays
Before the move gets underway, we will determine all potential problems that we may encounter along the way. This means that we are prepared to deal with any issues as and when they come up.
Changes in manufacturing demand
To remain competitive, it’s important to react to changes in manufacturing demand. This might involve new machinery, the relocation of existing machinery or extending/expanding your business services. Whichever the challenge, Flegg Projects can help you respond to market demand with fluidity and minimal disruption.
Relocation of business
Flegg Projects are well positioned to assist with factory relocation services for multiple sites and any amount of machinery. We can deliver to all locations in the UK, Ireland or internationally.
Issues when crossing the border are relatively common, especially in the wake of Brexit, but our cross-docking service is designed to eliminate any problems. We will safely store your freight in our warehouse based in Aylesbury for an average of one week while arrangements are made for it to head to its next destination. This service minimises your risk and costs when moving equipment across the border.
As industry leaders, we work hard to provide a reliable service that always prioritises safety. Through our extensive experience in the industry, we have developed a solution that reduces the potential dangers involved with moving heavy equipment. Our turnkey solution focuses on reducing disruption and delays because we recognise just how valuable a timely installation is to your business.
When planning your project, our machinery movers will work closely with your team so we can get a full understanding of your priorities and any potential difficulties with moving your specific equipment.
This allows us to develop a clear plan that is tailored to your business, meaning that we can execute a fast and efficient move every time.
