    Default Need A Rigger Near Portland Oregon

    HI Guys- Can anyone recommend a rigger near Portland, Oregon that can load out an
    8000# VMC onto a flatbed line truck. A friend of mine purchased a machne near there and one local guy quoted him $1500 for a simple move out of the building and setting it on
    the truck. He has the trucking set up and just needs someone to rig it.
    Thanks in advance. Dan

    That sounds about right for the guys in Portland . Metro machinery rigging & Morgan machinery moving are the big dogs in Portland. somewhere I have a card for the last guy we used and he was about half of what Metro or Morgan wanted to move a vlt. God I hate the new phone books you need 3 or 4 books and still don't get what we used to get in just one book.Ken

    I'm just about an hour outside of Portland and I would use Metro Rigging to have it moved. I had a mill moved back in May and I think then they were like $200 or so per hour. All riggers charge from the time they leave the yard until they get back. I think to bring out and set my new mill was $1400.00.
