When suppliers of quality used sheet metalworking equipment, Machine Sales Ltd, called upon the experts at MBA Transport with a machine move query, the team was all ears. An eight-tonne press brake needed relocating from Scunthorpe to Glasgow on a specific date, and the job needed completing within just a week.
Having previously completed jobs with even tighter deadlines, the MBA Transport team set to work organising the machine move within the set timeframe.
Once in Glasgow, the team started by moving an existing machine in order to get to the press brake. Both the machines needed jacking and skating, which required a significant amount of manoeuvring to ensure everything ended in the right place.
Working with such large machinery demands high-level precision with several other machines causing limited space for movement. The intricacy of the job resulted in further pressure to deliver on time, and the equipment had to be loaded out of hours as not to disrupt production in the workshop.
The job was carried out on time, with no incidents and to the customer’s full satisfaction.
