Lift-It Manufacturing "Customer's Corner"



Lift-It Manufacturing Co., Inc. sling and rigging manufacturer located in Los Angeles for the last 33 years acquired a 40,000 sq./ft. building in Pomona. Coast Machinery Movers moved our equipment to our new facility.

The machinery involved in the manufacturing process included a 300 ton load tester that measured approx. 90 ft. and weighed in at approx. 25,000 lbs. and a 75 ton load tester that measured in at 50 ft. and weighed in at approx. 6,000 lbs. We also have (4) round sling machines; the largest being 110 ft. long capable of producing slings in excess of 1,000,000 lbs. vertical capacity.

The greatest challenge was the 300 ton load tester. When the machine was purchased, it was delivered in three pieces and welded together onsite. To avoid the agony of cutting and welding Coast Machinery Movers made a split minute decision to move the machine in one piece by utilizing a "stretch deck trailer" capable of handling the 90 ft. machine length. This was an amazing feat in my opinion, not only did it save thousands of dollars in welding charges but enabled us to bring our manufacturing and testing equipment back online many days sooner than planned!

I could not be more pleased with the professionalism that Marcelo and his crew displayed. These gentlemen are true professionals and the team work and precision these men displayed was something that I have seen very few times. Marcelo's crew went above and beyond the call of duty in many areas of the move and I was extremely satisfied how the job started and ended. JOB WELL DONE!!!!!
