Engineering Machinery Moving Experts For The Education Sector – How we can help!

As machinery moving experts for the education sector, Merritts provide time critical solutions for both university and school facilities that have a need to move their heavy machinery and/or high valued sensitive equipment from within their engineering departments.

Education Machinery Moving

Our specialist machinery and equipment, detailed planning, and experienced project management team ensures we can complete the relocation of engineering machinery and associated equipment in the most efficient way possible.

Below is a brief summary of some of the machine moves we have carried out for universities throughout the UK:

  • An 8 week project involving the relocation of sensitive laboratory equipment from a number of buildings on campus, to the Grade II listed Sir Frederick Mappin Building, as part of the Engineering Heartspace Project for the University of Sheffield.
  • The collection of a new 14Te DIG generator and 4Te P7 alternator from manufacturers Stamford, and onward delivery to the University of Nottingham where we performed the offloading and positioning.
  • The removal of heavy machinery from an engineering department at the University of Leicester. The machinery was stored at our warehouse facility whilst refurbishment work was carried out at the university. Following the refurbishment, Merritts then returned the machinery to the university and re-installed.
  • As part of our machinery movers package, we utilised the expertise of our mechanical and electrical engineers to successfully complete the dismantling and removal of a large scale pilot plant at the University of Nottingham.
  • The disconnection, removal, and transfer of heavy manufacturing machinery between buildings at the University of Birmingham.
  • The collection, delivery, offload, and installation of new laser machinery at the University of Huddersfield.

As well as providing heavy lifting, transportation, installation, storage, and engineering services, we can also offer customers the following services to ensure the smooth completion of projects:

  • Professional packaging options to ensure the protection of valuable and sensitive items whilst being moved/transported
  • Provision of storage facilities at our Midlands based headquarters
  • Comprehensive health and safety documentation
