Dismantling, transport and reassembling

Are you considering moving a (used) machine? Galred can assist you with the dismantling, transportation and reassembling of the machine. This can be from a multi-continental change of location to internal re-positioning of machines within a company. We can provide a turn-key solution whether you buy a machine via Galred or another party. 

We provide full turn-key solutions. This can include:

  • Careful planning of the entire operation in close cooperation with the client to minimize interference on production
  • Professional electrical and mechanical dismantling of the machine
  • Loading of the machine on suitable transport. Oversized items will be carefully packed or crated for overseas transport.
  • Arranging (special) transport to get the machine from A to B
  • Unloading of the machine at the place of destination
  • Mantling of the machine and bringing it back in the same condition as it was before the start of dismantling (with performance test if possible)
  • Full insurance of the machine and liability insurance for any other damage
  • Under Galred's responsibility, many used machines have been moved from one location to another. We work closely with some of the best-specialized companies in the industry.

Dismantling and reassembling

If you only need the dismantling or reassembling of a machine to be done, Galred can be of service as well. Dismantling a used machine is a very precise job. It must be well done. Galred works closely with several partners specialized in the disassembly of used machinesfor the flexible packaging industry. Galred has dismantled dozens of flexo printing presses, slitter-rewinders, bag-making machines, and extrudersin the past twenty years. Reassembling a pre-owned and transported machine asks for a lot of technical knowledge and experience. Galred only works with professionals who know what they are doing to ensure the machine will run in a perfect state after the reassembling.


Transporting machines can be a big challenge. To keep your equipment safe during relocation, it is important to properly pack and load the machines. Without the right knowledge and experience, it can be a complex matter to move equipment from one factory to another. Heavy and delicate machines, like printing presses and bag-making machines, are very vulnerable during transport. Galred can arrange special transport and custom-made crates and packaging to ensure your equipment arrives at its final destination in perfect condition.
