Preparing For Equipment Movers in Dallas
When an industrial business is going to be moved to a new facility a good deal away from its existing location, there will be a need to move any machinery used on the property to its new destination. There are several steps one can take in preparing heavy machinery for a ride on a flat bed truck to ensure it arrives without damage.
Take Photographs Of The Machinery
It is a good idea to take several photographs of machinery to be moved before the moving service arrives. These can be used for insurance purposes should the machinery suffer from any damage while in transit. Taking photographs is also helpful as it will allow those who use the machinery to put it back together in the proper way if loose pieces need to be removed in the preparation process of the move.
Remove Any Protruding Items
If there are lose pieces on the machinery, or protruding items, they will need to be removed before the machinery is placed on a truck for a move. These can be stored in boxes or storage containers with smaller pieces of equipment used in the business. When the machinery arrives at the destination, assembly can be done to get the machinery back into working order.
Drain All Liquids Before The Move
It is important that any liquid substance in a piece of machinery is removed before the machinery is hauled away. This will ensure there are no spills on the roadway which could lead to an accident or damage to the moving truck. It will also cut down on the weight of the vehicle. Since fuel, oil and other machinery liquids are flammable, this reduces the risk of a fire as well.
