Detailed Planning for Smooth Project Completion
Merritts machinery movers will ensure a comprehensive preliminary site visit is performed in order to fully understand the scope of works and the most efficient method of carrying out the machinery relocation. Following this, a detailed project plan will be created for the customer, outlining the full work schedule.
As expert engineering machinery movers, Merritts will liaise with all relevant parties throughout the machine move to keep everyone updated with the works schedule.
For example, if the removal service or machine installation is being carried out at a University, we would coordinate accordingly with all the various departments that need to be involved to ensure that minimal disruption and inconvenience is caused.
To accommodate for any unforeseen circumstances during the project that may have the potential to cause delays, Merritts have the ability to operate out of hours and weekend working to keep the project on course.
Access restrictions? We have the knowledge and solutions
As engineering specialists, our preliminary site visit will also be used to understand the necessary access requirements to safely remove or install the heavy engineering machinery and equipment.
Within our engineering machinery relocation package, we will review the entire journey the machinery and any components will need to take, assessing factors such as vehicle access, floor conditions, ground loading pressures, internal ceiling heights, door measurements and the location of power lines and drains.
Following this assessment, we can then put into place the most suitable methods to safely access and remove the items. These can include:
- Increasing the size of doorways
- Removal of walls
- Provision of scaffolding or staging
- Steel plates for floor protection
- The use mobile elevated work platforms
- Positioning within any existing production line
Merritts is able to provide a wide range of comprehensive heavy machine removal and installation techniques and solutions for production machinery, industrial plant and mechanical infrastructure.
