“Lift and Go” – Moving server cabinets.

When you need a device that will lift and transport a full server cabinet, the Movemate XL has to be the tool of choice. This versatile lift has over the years, proven itself to be a valuable asset to any relocation team challenged with the task of moving any style of full cabinet. The Movemate has a lifting capacity of 1000 kg and a variable geometry of 400-800mm between the forks, so without having to manhandle the server cabinet excessively, you can literally slide it under, lift and go.

Several organisations, large and small have invested wisely in a Movemate and have never regretted it. We regularly receive positive feedback from very happy clients. ( For more information about the Movemate and other variable geometry handling equipment, please call us on 01635 569500. )

Manuvit video showing the “Movemate” in action

This versatile little truck has been at the forefront of commercial moves for nearly twenty years and has become the Facilities Managers “go-to” piece of equipment. The variable geometry allows the user to pick and place a wide variety of objects within the scope of the 1000 x 800mm footprint. Cabinets, crates, printers, even vending machines all present no problem to this ingenious device.


More and more the city workplace has become architecturally sophisticated and therefore it presents a greater challenge to commercial movers, consequently they are required to adopt the highest level of care and health and safety standards while performing “churn” or an office move. The fabric of many buildings use a diverse number of materials including steel, glass, marble, granite and other exotic materials, all these need protecting during any movement. The Movemate with its soft polyurethane wheels and secure orientation allows movement throughout most buildings with the minimum of effort and maximum efficiency.

Changing our DNA.



The newly opened Francis Crick Institute exhibition space is currently showing the How do we look? exhibition. Focusing on the words of their own researchers they explore the world of scientific problem solving. Fortunately for them the one problem they no longer need to solve is how to move their uniquely designed display cases. Using our standard M59 Movemate with applied anti scratch fork technology, the cabinets can be relocated to any position within the display area with minimum effort.

Workshop makeover

To keep the troops happy in their surroundings we have installed wall to wall carpet tiles on the workshop floor. Extravagant you might think but the benefits we’ve gained with soundproofing and reduced heat loss added to the comfort underfoot has proved to be a huge success. Just let them get any oil it and there will be ructions.


With just me doing the carpet fitting I was able to move all the full storage cabinets myself.  I told you these things where good.
