Call a rigger. You need a box truck, a flat bed and a high capacity fork lift. If you have dock height loading, all you need id two pallet jacks. If you can't figure out how to do that, let me know the specifics of your location, and the new location, and I can be of help.

thanks, the machines are SWF. I was hoping actually for a name or two of companies that someone knows about that has moved machines in the San Antonio area.
they are in a retail operation with 1 inch clearance on the sides for the 4 head to make it in the double door.. no forklift will be possible. When we installed the machine nearly five years ago we unloaded it on the street rolled it to the curb and used people at the bus stop to lift it half at a time onto the sidewalk.. then the same maneuver up 3 granite steps and then rolled in through the door and parked it right inside on the hard wood floor. So I am guessing the reverse will have to occur.. just was hoping for something a little more professional, lol

It sounds like you REALLY need a rigger. Look in the yellow pages. Every big city (and many not so big cities) have at lease two riggers. A good rigger will bring all the necessary machinery or dollies.

UPDATE: machines moved... regular mover moved the smaller machines along with all the thread, etc... the a flat bed TOW TRUCK moved the larger machine... lol parked sideways in the street, backed right up over the curb and lowered the bed to the top step... we wheeled the machine to the front door and the guy wenched it onto his truck.... drove through town letting the machine enjoy the 105 degree sunshine..... backed right up to garage, and lowered right inside.

I did have to tell the guy I was REPOing the thing....lol He took pics and is planning on using it to promote his actual repo business.... how funny. No Damage... cost less than $250.
