Machine Moving and Rigging

One of the Best Machine Moving and Rigging Companies in Johannesburg

We have refined our service options for machine moving and rigging in Johannesburg.

Our machine moving and rigging division was created in 2007. In order to guarantee a high level of quality service, we employ only the most highly trained riggers, crane operators, and drivers. Our rigging equipment, such as slings, dollies, and spreader bars, has all been load tested and approved.

But what exactly is machine moving and rigging and what kind of equipment is needed to do the job?

Rigging is the method of moving, securing, or putting down a load while employing mechanical shifting equipment. It also entails the erection and dismantling of cranes and hoists. Using cranes and hoists and other apparatus like chain blocks and winch systems, riggers effectively move heavy objects. Many elements must be taken into account during rigging, and it can be a difficult task to get the job done well the first time. Before lifting a load, the safest way to move it must be determined, and the load must then be handled and placed correctly.

Rigging equipment is the devices and elements used to safely heave, pull, push and lift huge objects as part of a planned system implemented by a crew of riggers. The type of rigging job will dictate the kind of moving devices used. To illustrate, think of a jack used for lifting, skates and dollies used for pushing, chains, hooks, and tie-downs required for pulling, and chain hoists used for lifting. Sometimes, cranes and forklifts are needed when large or heavy equipment has to be moved. You'll need rigging equipment if you want to lift the hefty object onto a crane, for example.

Prevent a container crises

Containers are utilised in both domestic and international shipping. Transporting cargo in containers has simplified the flow of goods and is one of the most cost-effective methods available. Containers are a useful method of carrying cargo since they are easy to load and unload. Cranes and specialised flatbed trucks are used to carry the containers from their location to the transportation vehicle via a fully mechanised handling system, and then to its destination where it is offloaded.

The phrase "Container Stuffing" is used to describe the process of loading containers onto cargo ships for transportation. This is the reverse of "container stripping," which is the process of emptying a container. It's a lot more difficult than it appears to load shipping containers. It is a process that requires careful planning and execution. One of our top priorities is to ensure that the commodities we receive are handled in a safe and efficient manner.

We provide container transportation services both nationally and across borders to neighbouring countries, and we will ensure that all necessary abnormal load clearances and paperwork are in order to keep the trip on time.

Types of containers that we transport nationwide:

  • Empty 6m or 12m containers
  • Full 6m or 12m containers
  • 3m, 6m, 9m and 12 m park homes

Twist locks are used to secure the containers to the flatbed. To assure the safety and integrity of the container while in transit, each container is numbered and has a live satellite tracking service that includes vehicle recovery.

Whatever the distance, we've got you covered. Contact our professional team today for a quote.
