Has your manufacturing business outgrown your current facility? Well, this is good news because it shows growth and success. However, continuing to operate in the same facility can cause inconveniences, delays, and losses. It would be best to relocate to a larger facility. But relocating your industrial plant is not a walk in the park. It is an intimidating and complex process. Luckily, you can entrust the relocation to a rigging service. So, what do rigging services cost? This article will highlight three factors that go into rigging costs when relocating your plant to keep you in the know.

1. The Distance of the Move                                                 

Where are you relocating your plant? This is the first question the riggers will ask you before giving you a quotation. If you are relocating your plant from one side of the town to another, the rigging cost may be lower than when relocating to another state. This is because long distance means more workforce, gas, and advanced equipment to get the job done. But no matter the distance of your move, the riggers will deliver your plant safely and on time.

2. The Size and Weight of Your Plant

The larger your plant, the more time it will take to relocate. Also, the experts may have to use advanced equipment to dismantle, load, carry, unload and assemble your plant. Moreover, they may have to hire a specialist for effective dismantling and assembling if your plant is complex. But this does not mean you should worry that your plant is big and complicated for the riggers. Professional riggers have handled similar projects before, and no plant is too big for them. The best part is that their services are insured, so you can rest assured that your plant will reach its destination in one piece. If it does not, they will initiate an immediate compensation claim process with their insurer.

3. The Condition of Your Plant

As mentioned, the expert will do everything in their power to ensure zero damage to your plant during relocation. The time taken for successful relocation depends on the condition of your industrial plant. If your plant is worn out, the experts must be extra careful to avoid damage when dismantling, loading, and transporting it. And they also have to invest more time and resources in their safety, raising the cost. But whether your plant is old or new, feel free to seek rigging services. The experts are trained to handle all types of plants regardless of their age and conditions.

Relocating your industrial plant to a bigger facility can be overwhelming. But with a reputable rigging service by your side, the process can be smoother, faster, and less stressful. In addition, now that you know the factors that affect the costs of rigging services, you can seek their services with confidence that you are getting value for your money.
