Dear transportation:

In general, riggers are your best bet to professionally move heavy or
sensitive equipment. A rigger can arrange both the pickup (diassembly
if needed), packaging, and transport to a new area and also the drop
off (assembly if needed), and unpacking in a separate location.  They
can use their own trucks, or contract trucking, and frequently
contract with an associate in the delivery location if it is a
substantial distance from the pickup to accomplish the delivery. By
the style of your question, I assume you know that this type of
professional expert service is more costly than an ordinary moving
company but the methods, packaging, bonding, and insurance of a rigger
virtually guarantees a trouble free move.  The riggers listed below in
Dayton, OH may not take small jobs. Often they can suggest someone who
will take the job since there are frequently small companies who
attach themselves to large rigging companies to do moves of safes and
critical small equipment shops.

Trojan Riggers Inc - (937) 224-5099 - 1107 Chapel St, Dayton, OH 45404
Precise Riggers & Erectors - (937) 427-2870 - 1655 Brook Lynn Dr,
Dayton, OH 45432
Omega Riggers & Erectors Inc - (937) 278-1100 - 5110 Webster St,
Dayton, OH 45414
Precise Riggers & Erectors Inc - (937) 426-8259 - 1655 Brook Lynn Dr,
Dayton, OH 45432

If you find these riggers are not suitable to your needs, please
request a clarification and I'll be glad to search further to your

search strategy on google:  "riggers" + "dayton, OH"
Also, my brother owns a rather large rigging company that he started
over 25 years ago after buying out a small rigger who mainly did safes
and small machine shops while now my brother's company deals in
complete factories both the in USA and abroad so I am quite familiar
with their methods and procedures.

Extremely helpful answer!  Gave me vocabulary to make myself
understood when I speak to moving companies about this unusually
complex part of the move.  Gave specific names of riggers to talk to. 
I am satisfied my money was well spent.  Thanks to Seedy!
