Plant and machinery move

Moving high value, technical plant and machinery can be stressful.

Relocating, removing or reconfiguring any commercial equipment often requires specialist plant or lifting gear. If you don’t have the tools yourself, you have to trust others to complete the move for you and the prospect of damaging your machinery is worrying.

At Johnsons, one of our specialities is moving both precision and heavy machinery and industrial equipment. We have a variety of specialist lifting and moving equipment in-house, as well as access to a number of trusted suppliers of plant and cranes.


Our teams of qualified and experienced staff can manage a whole range of relocation projects, from on-site moves to full de-commissioning, relocation and re-installation of machinery and factory equipment. We offer the complete turnkey solution, including the use of a wide range of specialist and custom equipment so that your move is completed as efficiently as possible. 

As part of our complete service offering, we can also advise you on connecting to the appropriate services including pipeworks, ducting, electrical, mechanical and civil requirements.


We can move and relocate complete factory lines quickly, working to complex schedules, so that you can get set up and operating again as soon as possible. In fact, we can develop lifting plans to fit around your time requirements, managing the whole heavy machinery moving process.

Our teams of both in-house and specialist subcontractors have the skills and expertise to make the relocation process as efficient as possible. Once the equipment has been moved, it may need calibrating, and we can also provide lift and load calculations along with sign-off certification for all work undertaken.

Our Move Managers can prepare detailed plans and handle all of the logistics including special transport or haulage requirements.

Past projects

I was very pleased with the guys who carried out the two move onsite recently, I’ll be in touch when we have another move.


We’ve used Johnsons on a number of previous schemes – it’s always a good service.
