Maximising safety by planning each stage of machinery removals

When we provide machinery removals in Essex we take several steps to ensure we maximise safety at all times. Our professional approach will keep our team, anybody else on the site, and members of the general public safe. In addition it helps to ensure that the items we are handling and transporting aren’t damaged.

The first step with any removal is planning how to get the item safely out of the property. We have the knowledge and experience to accomplish this, overcoming any accessibility issues we are faced with. In addition we can employ a wide array of different lifting equipment if it becomes necessary.

Once the item is out of the property it needs to be loaded into a vehicle. Depending on the size and weight this could be a van or a large container. We will select the best vehicle for the project, ensuring the item can be secured in place and moved safely to its new home. The benefit of vans and containers is it keeps everything sheltered from the elements, reducing the risk of damages.

Positioning a piece of machinery in its new home can be just as challenging as removing it from the previous property. Before this can be done it must be confirmed that the new setting is suitable for the item. The last thing we want to do is place something on a floor that is not strong enough to bear the weight. As a result a risk assessment and structural check should have been done. We will use this information to ensure it is safe to continue.

During the placement of the machinery we can use the same lifting equipment to overcome access issues and get the positioning right. For example if doorways and hallways are too narrow it may be possible to use a crane to enter the property via a window. Our team can guide each item carefully, ensuring it is lined up so the fabric of the property is not damaged.

As you can see we have a very careful approach to machinery removals in Essex. That way we can maximise both safety and quality. If you need our help, whether for a large or small project, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
