Tip #1: Plan Ahead
Relocating your plant is a big job and is definitely something you need to thoroughly plan for in advance. In other words: it’s not something you can do on a whim. From finding a new location that will be good for your business to planning how you are going to transport all of your machinery and equipment to the new location, it’s important to get as detailed as possible so nothing is forgotten or left out.
Tip #2: Map Out the New Location
In planning to relocate your plant, it’s also important to know how you want to set up the new plant. What machinery will go where? What equipment should you keep and what should you sell or get rid of? How will we be able to access all of it at the new place? Are there certain areas certain pieces of equipment need to be in order to meet with OSHA and other governing requirements? It’s important to answer these questions in advance so you don’t have to worry about it when moving day arrives.
Tip #3: Get Required Maintenance on Your Machinery Before and After Moving It
It’s a good idea to get maintenance on your machinery done before because oftentimes, maintenance uncovers issues with pieces of equipment that are irreparable. You wouldn’t want to take a permanently damaged machine with you to your new plant. Doing maintenance before allows you to know what to keep and what to get rid of.
However, it’s also a good idea to get maintenance and inspections done on them once you arrive as well. This way, if they were somehow damaged in the move, you’ll know before you start using them again.
Tip #4: Work With an Industrial Contractor
An industrial contractor will be able to get your machinery and equipment to your new plant quickly and efficiently. They’ll ensure everything is being transported safely to reduce the chances of accidents and damages, and will know all about transporting items to other states and countries depending on where you are traveling. All in all, working with an industrial contractor makes relocating your plant that much easier.
