It takes a lot of manpower to get large machines on to trucks that are seen moving slowly down the highway. Usually, there is a pickup truck in back with a “heavy load” sign on it. Getting the machine packed up and ready required more than one person. Technicians with immense knowledge know how to get that machine chained down so that it will not move when the semi it’s packaged on starts on its journey. Some machines are so large that they have to be taken apart and the parts moved separately.
Even if it’s not a huge machine, companies spend lots of time getting it carefully crated. Machines that must be taken apart, then have to put together by those who will be able to start it right up after its long trip. The first step in its long trip is that it was sold to a company needing that type of machine. Next, everyone from riggers and millwrights, to laser technicians and craters may have to get involved. Very often, if a company is moving out of state, an entire plant consisting of many machines will have to be moved by professionals.
Once the equipment has gotten to its new home, it has to be put back together again. Millwrights, laser technicians and craters are needed to take the machinery out of crates, move it off the semi and onto the floor of its new residence.
