How we operate
Our Machine Movers Process
Our machine movers team understand that every machine movement project is different. However, the process for delivering each project professionally is still the same (albeit the process for the work on site is rarely the same from one project to another). The core components of this process include our site visits and assessments, preparation of quotes and RAMS, confirmation of values for insurance purposes, and the execution and management of our project operations. Below is a typical outline of a standard machine movement project from start to finish.
The first step is for Synergy Lifting's machine movers team to conduct a site audit to produce documentation for the following steps.
Following our initial site visit, our team will produce a detailed quotation with an outline of our scope of works and timescales.
Our team will undertake our full site assessment to establish HSE requirements and finalise our method for lifting operations, dismantling etc.
With safety being our priority in all of our operations, a site-specific risk assessment will be created to go alongside our method statement.
Our team will write up a site-specific method statement detailing our safe working procedures to carry out our operations.
Highways and Councils
Synergy Lifting will work with local councils to arrange any necessary permits or road closures if heavy/wide loads need transporting off site.
Synergy Lifting's full comprehensive insurance covers will be presented to the client for review before site operations commence.
The machine movement work will be undertaken by Synergy Lifting’s qualified personnel utilising our specialist plant and equipment.
We hand over the project to our client upon completion. This could be after a single machine mover or a full factory relocation.
