How We Do It: The Rigging Moving Process

Rigging is a highly specialized service that requires expert knowledge and depth of experience in order to be done safely and properly. While this is a complicated process, we have broken it down into these six steps:

Step 1—Customer contacts IRH
Step 2—Estimator is assigned to the project
Step 3—Estimator makes a site visit to view the location and equipment
Step 4—Estimator reviews the moving process with the customer
Step 5—We move it
Step 6—Followup review with customer for feedback on performance


These guys are very skilled and professional. I was worried about moving my large and expensive machinery. Everything was moved quickly and without a scratch. When your business depends on your equipment, this is the company to trust moving it. Thanks!
