I just did one of those moves. What a gong show. The owner hired an installer and a rigging company, separately, who sub contracted out the trucking. NOBODY had any idea what anyone else was doingHi, no one specific to recommend, start calling machinery movers, find out who'd be interested, and get a couple of quotes. I'd have the protective head gear on, a couple of guys, flat bed and a tow motor gets expensive quickly. Last time I moved something really large, I used some guys out of Welland who were decent enough, but you are paying for travel before and after so want to get someone somewhere along the route or at either end. It is nice reducing a machinery move to point and sayign "put it there" but its expensive
Should have mentioned that Becker Bros is easier found as . . .

Redmond & associates in MississaugaThanks for everyone's response.
I have been following some auctions for used, surplus equipment. There is usually a requirement for professional movers (insurance, equipment, etc) to handle the move.
Private sales seem to always require moving some of the owners other equipment or have complicated access.
All these things are beyond my physical capability and, therefore, require the use of my financial capability.
At my end, there is no problem placing the machinery in my building other than a gravel driveway and an 7' high door opening.
I was looking for a firm was used to dealing with hobby machinists, and able to give a budget range for moving so that I can factor that into any bidding or offer to purchase.
