The Benefits of SPMTs
At Apex Specialized Rigging & Moving, our team values flexibility. Each project has different specifications, which means we need equipment that can respond and adjust as fast as our rigging and moving experts. Unlike typical platform trailer services, SPMT services allow us to move lengthy, off-balance, or heavy objects with less equipment, leading to better efficiency and safety.
Safety & Risk Management
While traditional moving methods for overweight objects typically present risks for personnel, equipment, and other assets, SPMTs reduce that risk significantly. They remove most of the risk of human error, as they are controlled by a single device with a single operator.
One of the main advantages of SPMTs is their control. They are able to turn 360 degrees, allowing for a greater range of movement. Each axle can be controlled separately as well, and the platform deck can be moved up and down, allowing for ideal weight distribution and easier loading and unloading. And finally, they’re controlled by a power pack unit that controls the hydraulic systems and allows for various steering modes and configuration options.
Thanks to their heightened capabilities and built-in features, SPMTs transform days into hours and weeks into days. Prep work and assembly for transporting equipment with conventional systems was complex and time-consuming. It included multiple people controlling multiple systems and equipment. In this modular system, we have one person controlling the load, moving with extreme precision.
