Machinery Moving

With Omega Morgan, you can take a load off. Our highly-trained team of professional machinery movers can move almost anything using our state-of-the-art equipment and decades of experience. We not only do the heavy lifting, we also coordinate the small details and logistics that make projects run smoothly anywhere in the Portland, Seattle, and Calgary area.

Customers value our professional, customized approach to every project that safeguards their equipment and delivers reliable, efficient machinery moving services. And customers appreciate that our services are always designed to meet or exceed OSHA safety requirements.

Machinery Moving Services

We are your trusted partner for safe machinery moving. We can move CNC machining equipment and commercial and industrial machinery of nearly any type, size, or weight domestically and internationally while avoiding disruption to production. We have the proven ability to minimize downtime. For example, in one instance we reduced the timeline for a complete manufacturing facility relocation by three weeks using our specialized equipment and skilled crew.

CNC and Industrial Equipment Moves

We have the dexterity to securely move an antique trolley car into a historical building without a blemish to either’s beauty. We also have the strength to maneuver a 110,000-pound bridge crane to ground level, set it in a staging area, and lift it back into place on new rails without a scratch.

Turnkey Plant Relocations

You don’t need to hire multiple companies to accomplish your move. We are your full-service, complete plant relocation experts. Your move is strategically organized from the initial project planning phase through completion. Our team combines education, experience, and ingenuity to offer the highest level of project management available for turnkey plant relocations that run smoothly from start to finish.

Assembly, Disassembly, and Installation of Manufacturing Equipment

We take great pride in our ability to disassemble, assemble, and install CNC machining and all types of manufacturing equipment. Our installation professionals follow your and/or the manufacturer’s specifications to make sure you’re more than just relocated; you’re also primed to operate at peak performance. This means providing precision leveling, accurate alignment, and careful seismic considerations when placing equipment to increase its availability and reliability.

Transportation Needs

Our crew will come to your facility, package and crate your equipment, load it into trucks, and transport everything to your new location safely, securely, and on time.


Are you not ready to complete a full relocation, or do you need equipment stored for just-in-time delivery due to job site restrictions? We provide space to store your machinery out of harm’s way. Long- and short-term storage is available in our clean, state-of-the-art warehouse facilities.

Machinery Rigging

Successful machinery moving starts with strategic planning of every detail, no matter how small. Our experienced machinery movers and riggers diligently design specific solutions for every job to safely handle overhead lifting, rotation, and maneuvering machinery out of and back into place.

Machinery Moving Services for Mechanical and Electrical Contractors

We are a highly valuable asset to mechanical and electrical contractors who need a safe and efficient partner during installation projects. Our team can move switchgear, transformers, boilers, chillers, cooling towers, and a myriad of other large machinery and equipment, returning it to place quickly, carefully, and on schedule to keep every project moving forward smoothly.
