Merritts work across multiple sectors, regularly carrying out over 100 heavy machinery removal, installation, and transportation projects per month. We provide the world’s leading machinery manufacturers with specialist machinery moving, lifting, installation and storage services.
A major aspect of the service we provide is our commitment to health & safety. For each project, our H&S Department, headed by an ex HSE inspector, provides customers with a suite of documents to evidence our credentials. These include method statements, risk assessments, lift plans, personnel training records and plant and equipment inspection certificates. This helps to ensure all projects will be carried out safely and in accordance with the required legislation.
The examples below highlight just a few of the heavy machinery and equipment moving projects that we completed last month.
Merritts were appointed by ENGEL to deliver and position their new Wintec dual platen injection moulding machine. The brand new piece of equipment was stored temporarily at Merritts’ Nottinghamshire based storage facility before onward transit to ENGEL’s Warwick showroom, where ENGEL are offering customers a personalised tour of the facility and their machinery.

“Merritts handled everything from port of entry (which unexpectedly changed at the last minute) to installation onsite. It was a very professional and efficient service, and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.”

As a leading supplier of paper products to major retailers throughout the UK, this Midlands based paper manufacturer got in touch with us to receive, store and deliver their new, high value, paper production lines. A brief overview of the project included:
Based in Derbyshire, this manufacturer of state of the art material handling systems provides its customers with high quality products and services, specifically for the corrugated packaging industry. They required us to collect 7 x trailers of machinery from their manufacturing facility, deliver to our storage facility and offload and store. All items were logged into our warehouse management system. At the end of the storage period, we then loaded and transported the equipment to its new destination in Scotland, where we then offloaded into the receiving facility.
Merritts were approached by a fibre network infrastructure provider to receive, store, and deliver 15 of their data modules. The modules were 14 Te in weight with dimensions of 12m long x 3.6m wide x 3.2m high, and were accompanied with ancillary items which included, generators, batteries, and air conditioning units. The items were destined for numerous sites throughout the UK. A breakdown of this project included:
A regular customer of Merritts; we provide them with storage, delivery, and installation services for their machinery throughout the whole of the UK. A typical project would include:
As an added benefit, Merritts often provide out of hours or weekend working to ensure ongoing production schedules are not affected.
