What Is A Turnkey Plant Relocation?

What is a turnkey plant relocation? A turnkey plant relocation refers to a service provided by companies or organizations specializing in relocating entire industrial plants or manufacturing facilities from one location to another. The term “turnkey” implies that the relocation service provider (Ready Machinery Movers) handles every aspect of the process, from planning and disassembly at the current site to transportation, reassembly, and commissioning at the new site. 

Essentially, the client (typically a company or organization) hands over the entire project to the relocation service provider, who manages it from start to finish, delivering a fully operational facility at the new location. This approach minimizes the client’s involvement in the relocation process, allowing them to focus on their core business activities. The relocation experts can then take care of the logistics and execution. 

Here are the typical steps involved in this process:

Initial Assessment and Planning

  • Assessment of the current plant/facility and the new location to ensure its suitability.
  • Identification of all equipment, machinery, and materials to be relocated- take an inventory beforehand so they have something to compare to when making their own.
  • Evaluation of logistical challenges, such as transportation routes, permits, and regulations.
  • Development of a comprehensive relocation plan and timeline.

Preparation and Packaging

  • Disassembly of machinery and equipment at the current site, ensuring proper labeling and documentation.
  • Packaging and protection of components to prevent damage during transportation.
  • Inventory management to track all items being relocated.


  • They will coordinate transportation logistics, including securing trucks, trailers, and bringing on specialized equipment.
  • Arrange the necessary permits and compliance with transportation regulations.
  • Supervise the loading and securing of equipment onto transport vehicles. This way you can be sure everything is being done to your standard.

Site Preparation at the New Location

  • Assess and prepare the new site to accommodate the relocated plant/facility.
  • Installation of utilities, such as electricity, water, and HVAC systems, as needed. Try to make sure this is set up before you arrive!
  • Setup of infrastructure and facilities required for the operation of the plant.

Reassembly and Installation

  • Unloading and unpacking of equipment and machinery at the new site.
  • Assembly and installation of machinery according to predetermined layouts and specifications.
  • Connect the utilities and test equipment to make sure it all functions properly.

Commissioning and Testing

  • Conducting initial startup tests and trials to verify the proper operation of all systems.
  • Fine-tuning machinery and equipment to optimize performance.
  • Addressing any issues or discrepancies discovered during testing.

Training and Handover

  • They will provide training to personnel on the operation and maintenance of relocated equipment.
  • Handover of the plant/facility to the client, along with all necessary documentation and support.
  • Follow-up support and assistance as needed to ensure a successful transition.

In conclusion, a turnkey plant relocation offers companies a comprehensive solution for moving their industrial operations from one location to another seamlessly. By having specialists do the heavy lifting, you can minimize disruptions to your business operations and focus on core activities while the big relocation project is underway.
