Rigmoves. Minimize your down time.

Safety is crucial with rigmoves. But you also need to limit your down time to a minimum. Let us take care of both. Ever since 2008 we executed numerous rigmoves. We know all ins and outs, so you can rely on a safe and efficient rigmove. Let us take care of every last detail from planning and execution to evaluation. One contact person is dedicated to your project and available at all times.

Turn-key domestic and international serviceOver 90 years of experience, our specialist vehicle fleet and equipment are the basis for our turn-key domestic and international rigmoves. Just like the exceptionally high safety standards we put into practice for every project.

People and partners to execute your rigmove like clockworkCrucial for any rigmove is to disassemble the drilling rig at the old location and assemble it at the new site. Our experienced professionals take care of all coordination and activities; we execute your rigmove like clockwork.

Next to the best people, you need the right cranes for a rigmove. In the Netherlands and Northwest Germany we work with our trusted partner Kielstra Cranes. They earned their stripes in the field of cranes and lifting & hoisting. In countries outside of the Netherlands we partner up with other certified and experienced contractors within our wide spread network.

Our rigmoves process in short:
  • Pre-move meeting
  • Route and sites investigation
  • Safety manuals and risk assessments
  • Truck planning and coordination
  • Lifting plans, crane planning and coordination
  • Permit application and assistance
  • Execution of the rigmove (including personnel and equipment)
  • After move meeting to evaluate and share learnings

storage &


& escorts


The easy route to customs clearance

Let us cut through the red tape. We have the know-how to prepare, submit and process all your customs documentation for ex- and imports.

As Authorised Economic Operator (AEO) we are your safe, efficient and reliable partner in all customs matters - across the globe.

Are you handling your own customs, but need some expert advice? No problem, we're happy to support.


Your dangerous goods in safe hands

We know and strictly follow all local and international safety & security guidelines for handling and moving dangerous or hazardous cargo.

Our specialized solutions for Dangerous Goods Transport qualify for all 9 classes (including Class 1 Explosives and Class 7 Radioactive Material). All our drivers, advisors and partners constantly stay up to speed on current regulations and technical developments.

Decades of experience and knowledge in specialized ADR road transport ensure the high level of dedicated expertise required by air and ocean customers and carriers.

lifting & hoisting

Just leave the heavy lifting to us

Our specialist truck mounted loader cranes can be mobilized in no time. We handle cargo up to 20 ton with an outreach of up to 32 meters. Thoroughly trained and experienced, our operational staff is supported by professional engineers and project managers. Together they always find a safe solution for any project.

In case of heavy lift or oversized cargo we work with strategic partners in telescopic crane services, throughout Europe.


For smooth transits and safe delivery

Use our packaging services to prepare your cargo for further transit. We offer shrink wrapping, boxing and crating services to get your cargo ready for carriage by road, air and ocean freight.

In all our facilities handling equipment like forklifts and crane mounted trucks guarantee a quick mobilization. We can add (safety) stickers or customized markings to your cargo to ensure smooth transits.

route survey

We clear the way for out of gauge

You don’t want any surprises when moving exceptional cargo. That’s why we offer a route survey service for out of gauge transportation and bigger project mobilizations. This technical study includes inspecting the planned route, taking measurements and organizing pruning.

We use the gathered information to advice about possible risks, what equipment to use and which permits are needed.

storage & handling

Managing your stock in the EU

Whether you need indoor or outdoor, long or short-term storage, we can manage your stock in the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Romania, Turkey and Norway.

With heavy handling equipment such as forklifts and cranes, we easily store materials like drill pipes, casings, tubings, frames and reels and any other engineering equipment.


Specialists in unusually large transport

Across the globe we are ready for any special transport with unusually large dimensions. Such as a wind turbine component of 30 metres long, a 50-ton prefabricated concrete beam or a 20-metre high storage tank. It’s all in a day’s work for our experts.

With such complex projects, thorough preparation and skilled project management is essential. We take care of transport engineering, job preparation, permits and documents, transport supervision and operating manuals.

permits & escorts

Carefree passage for special transport

When goods or cargo exceed legally prescribed dimensions and masses, special transport arrangements must be made. We can arrange all necessary permits. And we own specially equipped vehicles that are required to escort oversized or heavy cargo.
