It is rare that there is anything in a Budget Statement specifically relevant to machinery moving, but the announcement of freeports has gained our attention because we think the tax advantages and investment incentives will give UK manufacturing a huge boost.
Having recently invested in a new £120k Nooteboom trailer, and a new £260k Versa-Lift 40/60, heavy machinery transport specialists, Merritts have just taken delivery of a new fully electric £400k JMG MC 580 cabin cruiser crane.
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.
Whether you have great experience in overseeing heavy machinery moving projects, or you are embarking on your first production line change requiring internal heavy machinery moves, we hope you learn something new from this article.
Please rest assured that Merritts are following all Government guidelines to ensure we can work safely during this national lockdown which was announced by the Government on 4th January 2021. The safety of our staff and customers is of paramount importance and we are continuing to implement a number of measures in order to continue to safely carry out work throughout these difficult times.
In just under a month the UK will have exited from the EU, regardless of whether there a is no-deal Brexit or a negotiated exit. Once the UK has left the European Union all imports and exports will be subject to duty and this will have an immense impact. Particularly for businesses that are importing or exporting heavy machinery, as these transactions usually represent a significant figure which means the duty payable will also be quite sizeable.
