Equipment and Storage

Our services include transporting your equipment to and from site. We can also store your equipment in one of our outdoor storage sites or one of our secure, climate controlled warehouses until your site is ready.

Equipment Disassembly and Assembly

When removing old equipment from a rooftop, we disassemble it into its components before lowering it to the ground. We arrange for trades to assemble/disassemble equipment as required.


Should the equipment’s location not be accessible by crane, we relocate to a different section of the roof to allow the crane to reach it.
