Hoist & Crane Moving for Heavy Objects

Our team uses hoists and cranes to move specialty items of all shapes and sizes. Whether you have heavy machinery on a second story or awkward items that won’t fit through the door, we can move them safely. We’re here to make sure your heavy, bulky, and delicate belongings don’t cause you stress on moving day.

Hoisting objects through a window or over a balcony is more common than you might think, even for residential moves. Doing this safely requires advanced knowledge of hoist and crane moving techniques. We use state-of-the-art equipment and a fleet of excellent moving vans with full-sized lift gates to make sure your belongings are in good hands every step of the way.

Our Custom Moving Services Include:

Art and Antiques

Do you need to move valuable, sentimental, or one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be replaced? We treat everything you own with the respect it deserves, including carefully wrapping each item in moving blankets and shrink wrap. In addition to moving your artwork with added protection, we can transport and store your collection in our climate-controlled wooden storage vaults.

Computers and Electronics

You don’t want to set up your new space after a move only to find out your IT equipment was damaged on the trip. Properly transporting computers and workstations is a delicate job that is best left to specialty equipment movers.

Medical Equipment

Lab and medical equipment is expensive, delicate, and often heavy. From MRI machines to surgical tools, you can trust West Coast Moving & Storage to handle your sensitive medical equipment safely.

Bulky Items

While we don’t move pool tables, fish tanks, or exercise equipment with cables, we move just about everything else. That includes heavy appliances, furniture, pianos, safes, cast iron bathtubs, and any palletized goods.
