Move and store your heavy equipment with specialized moving services

Move and store your heavy equipment with specialized moving services

Business owners, especially those who deal with industrial equipment, have a lot of working parts. So what do you do when your business is growing and your space is ready for an expansion? That’s where a moving company that offers specific moving services for commercial purposes can really help.

Commercial movers not only help when you are making a full move into a new location by packing up your equipment in the safest and most efficient manner possible, they also offer specialized moving and storage services, so if you are renovating, you have a place to store your equipment in the interim.

Here’s how they do it:


Heavy load

Whether it’s the water cooler or the vending machine or those specialized industrial equipment pieces that keep your business in operation, you need a moving company that can handle a heavy load. The same goes for any heavy furniture or appliances (ovens, fridges, barbeques) at your office or residence as well.

Professional packers and movers should have all the specialized equipment and applications in their arsenal to protect your wares while they are being moved.

This includes:

  • Cranes
  • Dollies
  • Jacks
  • Ramps
  • Crates
  • Specialized padding and packaging materials
  • Masonite for protecting walls and floor surfaces


Restore and store

If you are renovating your place of business, wouldn’t it be nice to find business movers or office movers that can not only remove your equipment and/or furniture and appliances, but store your wares in a * safe environment for the interim? Commercial storage services are a necessity when renovating. Not only do contractors need the space to do their work, it lessens the likelihood that your equipment and furniture will sustain damage. And as soon as you are ready to move back to your newly renovated place of business, your movers can deliver the goods.

* Make sure the moving company has a climate-controlled warehouse so that your industrial equipment does not incur any damage such as rust or mold.


Safe keeping

One of the heaviest items that businesses, especially those involved in banking and loans or guns, hunting and fishing equipment, have is their safe. Those locked boxes, where money or other items are kept for safe keeping, can weigh up to 1,000 pounds or more. A professional moving company should be able to move your safe in the safest way possible, so you don’t hurt your back, or the bank.
