Jacking & Skating of Machinery/Equipment

This is our basic service with our team simply jacking and skating machines into place, however the more difficult jobs require our team to use specialised AirSkates to complete the move. This service is often combined with another service (usually Machine Transportation / Relocation) and will most likely need the use of a forklift also.

Relevant Testimonial:

“We used King Machinery Moving’s Jacking & Skating service to install our new Press Brake and Guillotine. We cannot recommend their services highly enough, PJ and the team went out of their way to accommodate us and the whole operation was carried out safely, professionally and at the highest standard. We will be using KMS for any similar projects in future.”

Mark Byrne, Equine Engineering, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway

Relevant Industry: ALL
(We have different equipment for some industries but the service is common across them all)

Relevant Machine Type: Any machine/equipment which can’t be lifted/picked directly by a forklift or crane.

In-House Machinery Moving

This service is ideal for clients looking to relocate machinery/equipment within the same premises, site or factory. Typically, we find established companies making on-site changes (even moving machines from one building to another) regularly using this service.

Specialised Moving & Installation

Ideal service for clients who have what they would consider “Specialised” “High Value” or “High Insurance” equipment, which usually is combined with our crating/packing service to protect the sensitive cargo. It is common for us to use specialised equipment such as Portable Air Moving Systems and Electric Cranes as we often carry out work in cleanroom situations.

It can also be used by a client making changes themselves and project managing the site work, so we will work directly with them. Machinery moved with this service is usually Abnormal, Oversized & Awkward.

Machine Transportation/Relocation Services

This service suits those looking to relocate machinery/equipment (for example from Dublin to Galway) where we simply load it onto transport, secure it and then transport it to its next destination. Often, we are required to unload the machinery/equipment at the final destination and install it for our client. This service usually requires only a forklift to load the machine and is regularly combined with our Jacking & Skating service (Option 1) to remove/install the machinery before/after transportation.

Relevant Testimonial:

“We have used King Machinery Moving to Transport Machinery from one premises to another for a client on several occasions. The team always comes prepared and organises everything from forklifts to transport in a professional, safe and efficient manner. With a recent client, KMS Jacked & Skated the machinery outside, loaded and secured it properly before transporting it to another destination and unloading and installing it for the client safely. We would highly recommend their services.”
