When moving heavy equipment, machine-moving trucks should be your choice. These rolling cars require less power to move because of the central load plate. Most can move up to 15 tons and rotate 360 degrees. When moving large objects with a rolling platform, you should also use a ratchet strap.
Used equipment can be of great value. The price is usually very reasonable and the machine comes with a lot of accessories that you have to buy à la carte with a new machine. Sometimes, heirs just want to take the machine out of the basement to close a chapter about a loved one. The decisive factor for most people when buying used machinery is moving it.
It's essential that you invest in the right tools for the job. You can choose to work with forklifts or skates; the list is endless. However, forklifts are most preferred to help you move your equipment over short distances. You can use the forklift to lift heavy equipment and place it on the skates.
Skates have wheels, so you don't have to worry about lifting them during transport.
