Jack and Roll

Jack and Roll

In the context of moving very heavy equipment, "Jack and Roll" refers to a technique used to lift and move heavy machinery and other large objects. This technique involves using hydraulic jacks to raise the equipment off the ground and then using rollers or casters to move the equipment to a new location.


The jack and roll process is a common method used in industrial settings, such as factories, warehouses, and construction sites, to relocate large pieces of equipment or machinery. The hydraulic jacks are used to lift the equipment off the ground, making it possible to move it with a relatively small amount of force. The rollers or casters are then used to guide the equipment to its new location, allowing it to be moved smoothly and efficiently.


In addition to being a useful technique for moving heavy equipment, jack and roll can also be used to install and remove equipment as well as to make repairs or perform maintenance on the equipment. This versatility makes jack and roll a valuable tool for many industrial applications.

Why Choose Jack and Roll over Standard Crane Service

There are several benefits of using the jack and roll method over a standard crane service when moving heavy equipment, including:

  • Increased manoeuvrability: Jack and roll allows greater manoeuvrability of the equipment as it can be moved in any direction using the rollers or casters. This can be especially useful in tight spaces where a crane cannot access the equipment.

  • Cost savings: Jack and roll is typically a more cost-effective solution compared to a standard crane service. This is because the equipment and manpower needed for jack and roll is typically less than that needed for a crane, which can result in significant cost savings.

  • Speed: Jack and roll is a quicker process than using a crane as the equipment can be moved with a smaller team and without the need for a large crane. This can help to reduce downtime and get equipment back into operation faster.

  • Increased safety: Jack and roll is a safer method for moving heavy equipment, as it eliminates the need for large cranes, which can be dangerous if operated improperly.

Overall, the jack and roll method can be a more efficient, cost-effective, and safe option for moving heavy equipment in certain situations.

In 2016, our team was thrilled to be working on the Pachena Point Lighthouse. Here we jacked up the lighthouse 2 feet high so the base of the Heritage building could be rebuilt. The building sat on jacks for 2 months before being released down.

In 2016, we moved and installed the pizza oven at the Sawmill Taphouse and Grill in Chemainus. As you can see, the oven travels along 2 I-beams until it is in position.
