Professional Jack & Slide Services in Western Canada

Specialty Moving & Rigging Solutions

Apex Specialized Rigging & Moving offers high-quality hydraulic jack and slide services for industrial and commercial projects. Our qualified technicians have used this technique successfully in countless projects and continue to depend on it for safe and effective installations and transportation.

Our in-house jack and slide equipment can move up to 400 tonnes, with larger load capacities available on a custom basis.

Custom-Designed Jack and Slide Systems

Jack and slide services (also commonly known as jack and roll services) are an ideal solution for moving valuable equipment where crane access is limited or in difficult situations. This method of industrial rigging may look complex, but it’s extremely refined and safe, which is why it’s such a reliable method.

Most available jack and slide systems in BC are standard sizes and are designed for specific applications, but Apex Specialized Rigging & Moving delivers custom-designed solutions for all of your rigging needs.

Our jack and slide teams use a hydraulic jacking system to raise your load safely to allow beams to be inserted underneath it. Once the beams are inserted, we place guided Teflon skates or sliders between the load and the beams inside a steel frame. The load is then jacked down to the skates or sliders. Hydraulic cylinders are used to move the load along the beams to the desired location. The jacking process is then reversed, and your load is placed in its final location.
