Machinery moving and removals

As well as new machinery installation we provide machinery moving and relocation services.

As businesses grow and adapt so do their machinery requirements. This is why we offer a machine moving and relocation service to assist clients who find themselves needing to change their existing production facilities.

From internal machine moving within a factory, to the relocation of entire production facilities to other countries, we have the experience, equipment and expertise to ensure the move of your plant and equipment goes smoothly.

Whilst some of our competitors may approach your project with a ‘lift and shift’ mentality we take a completely different perspective. Working in partnership with you we will minimise the disruption to your operations and provide technical guidance where possible to help streamline your new setup.

A key part of our service is listening and working in partnership with our clients to ensure not only a successful installation of the machinery but also a delivery that’s on time and on budget.

Over the last 150 years we have grown as a company and built an unrivalled knowledge of the requirements of successful machine moving. Our experience enables us to identify and troubleshoot any potential problems before they occur. This expertise together with our desire to undertake your project safely and securely means that Beck & Pollitzer are the service provider of choice.
