Warehousing Services in Phoenix Arizona
The storage and relocation of heavy machinery is never simple. Things to consider include the weight, shape, while taking the extra care not to cause damage during handling or storage. You don't want to skimp on warehousing services. Choose a company that has a properly qualified crew to efficiently lift, move, and protect your heavy machinery during transport.
When Are Warehousing Services Required?
Whenever you need to move, store or relocate machinery, your first choice should be a properly equipped warehousing service. Here's why:
- New machinery: New equipment is usually shipped inside heavy wooden crates to prevent damage. These are bulky and the combination of size and weight means that handling new machinery is beyond the capabilities of most stevedoring and storage contractors.
- Relocation: When relocating a factory, it's necessary to store equipment while the plant is being disassembled, and then ship it to the new site in the right order for reassembly.
- Second-hand equipment: Sourcing good second-hand machinery is a great way to cut costs. However, once you have purchased a second-hand plant, you need to move quickly in order to secure storage, while minimizing the risk of damage or theft.
Typical Services Offered
The most important aspect about warehousing services for machine and equipment is that the location should be secure, dry and free of rodents. The warehouse needs to be large enough to safely store your equipment and have good access for loading and unloading. In some situations, it may be possible to take advantage of Arizona's dry climate to store equipment designed for outdoor use in the open air. However, particular care must be taken to ensure that motors, cables and vulnerable control systems are removed or properly wrapped, sealed and protected from dirt, dust and rain.
