What equipment needs heavy rigging?
Any piece of machinery or building material that is difficult to transport due to its size or shape ought to be moved using heavy rigging. Some common examples of these are electrical transformers, mechanical lathes, stamping machines, injection molding machines, and presses. These pieces of equipment generally must be transported in one large piece, making them difficult to load, unload, and move safely. Rigging is used to make sure equipment is secure during transport and that it can be loaded and unloaded easily without causing damage to the machine.
Safety benefits of professional heavy rigging
Even a relatively minor miscalculation when securing a heavy load for transport can be disastrous later on. Using a professional rigging service means that not only will your equipment and movers be safe, but so will bystanders and other drivers who happen to be in the vicinity. In addition, failing to properly balancing the weight of the equipment before transport can easily damage the transport vehicle, meaning expensive repairs for you.
