When in need to transport heavy or large plant machinery, follow this guideline and prepare your equipment properly for shipping. The best way to transport plant machinery and industrial equipment is by palletising or crating the shipment for better protection.

  1. Remove all pieces and dismantle the equipment as much as possible.
  2. If necessary, take photos and notes to keep track on how to re-assemble the equipment.
  3. Protect the fragile parts with bubble wrap and secure doors, handles and moving parts.
  4. Use a pallet and a wooden crate to protect and help moving the equipment.

Can I transport an air compressor lying down?
If you are transporting a new air compressor from a manufacturer, it typically can be laid down with no problem. If you are shipping a used air compressor, you have to drain the oil from the compressor first and then it can be moved in the horizontal position as well. When it’s not drained, the air compressor with oil could cause leakage into the cylinder if the rings are not tight.
Should I pack industrial equipment and plant machinery for shipping with the van service?
There are no specific packaging instructions for transporting plant and industrial machinery in a van. However, if your goods are fragile or require any special care, we do recommend that you pack them accordingly to avoid damage.
