Commercial Structural Moves

A Proven Track Record of Completing Difficult Projects

At Northwest Structural Moving, we have moved a variety of commercial structures including wood, steel and brick buildings, churches, bridges, modular classrooms and over-sized boats, yachts and other vessels. Regardless of the size, shape, weight or distance a structure needs to be moved, you can count on the knowledge and experience Northwest Structural Moving has to offer. We have a proven track record of completing difficult projects and finding solutions when faced with unique challenges.
For those clients moving structures such as bridges, vessels or other irregular shaped objects, we offer design and fabrication services for any custom apparatus or support that must be manufactured in order to safely transport the load. As our client, you will have a team of professionals working on your project to make sure all aspects of the move have been planned and coordinated to the last detail.

The most advanced equipment the industry has to offer

In addition, our company uses only the most advanced equipment the industry has to offer. This includes our Unified Hydraulic Jacking System and Self-Propelled Hydraulic Power Dollies. Visit our Structural Lifts section for information on the benefits of using a Unified Hydraulic Jacking System. We maintain a large variety of transport equipment including our Self-Propelled Hydraulic Power Dollies which allows us to move your structure in the safest and most efficient manner possible without the need of a pull truck. This is beneficial in tight areas, especially on narrow city streets or lots. We also have the equipment and manpower necessary to move multiple structures at one time for the customer who is looking at a larger scale project and wants to save time and money.

Moving a commercial building makes good economical sense

When a client contacts us about moving a commercial building, the reason is usually due to land development or historic preservation. When a piece of property can be developed and the structure is situated in a way that limits the potential of the property, the owner or developer can move the existing structure to fit the redevelopment. This makes good economical sense when you consider the cost of building a new structure or the cost to demolish the existing one. In some instances, the building does not fit the redevelopment plan and must be removed from the property. In this case, we strive to match the building with a potential customer looking for an investment opportunity. The new owner can save 30%-50% off the cost of building a new structure, have the benefit of instant equity and occupy the building in half the time of new construction. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved.
