Heavy Lift Jacking & Skidding

Our dedicated Team of Jacking & Skidding Engineers have the knowledge and expertise required for machinery extraction and the relocation of industrial cargoes in confined and restricted environments.

Heavy Transport Engineers & Heavy Lift Load Positioning

Utilising our specialist jacking & skidding equipment our Heavy Lift Team can ensure that no matter what the environment we can safely and securely undertake the heavy transport, extraction and load positioning of machinery & industrial cargoes.


In restricted environments crane hire is not always a suitable option.  Utilising our specialist hydraulic jacking & skidding systems Collett Engineers have the ideal solution for these confined spaces, providing a lifting, extraction and load positioning service in areas where traditional transport arrangements may not be a suitable option.

We operate a multi-functional synchronous hydraulic heavy lift jacking system capable of monitoring the position of the load between the four jacks to within a 1mm tolerance. This innovative hydraulic equipment allows us to raise and slide industrial machinery, transformers and components up to 500 Tonne in a controlled manner, indoors or outdoors.  With the option of jacking to lift and lower, and skidding to push and pull, we can load directly to trailer or relocate industrial machinery, transformers and components in confined spaces.

Hydraulic Jacking & Skidding and Machinery Extraction Industrial Services

Often used for the extraction or positioning of transformers within constricted industrial environments, these hydraulic jacking systems provide the perfect solution for machinery movements when more traditional transport or self propelled modular transporter (SPMTs) arrangements are not achievable.

Utilising these specialist jacking systems our Engineers can gradually raise loads to an optimum height to allow for the installation of a modular skidding system, with hydraulic push-pull units and low-friction skidding pads. Once in place this system can effortlessly facilitate the extraction and movement of machinery and industrial cargoes.

Where applicable all technical documentation, jacking & skidding tolerances, risk assessments, method statements and engineered calculations will be provided by our in-house Team.

With the skills, expertise and equipment at our disposal our Heavy Lift Team can provide the ideal jacking solution for moving heavy industrial objects, ideal for factory relocations, extractions and machinery movements.
