What Our Trucking & Rigging Company Can Do For You

The original definition of the word “rig” refers to the equipment used to hang the sails on a sailboat and is popularly referred to as rigging in the sailing communities. While we aren’t sailors, we do practice working in the rigging industry, where the only commonality of our industry and sailing is that we use lines, ropes and other “rigs” to functionally move something where we want it to be, or where you want it to be, that is.

Here at Stephen Izzi Trucking & Rigging Inc. we offer rigging services second to none in the Edison, New Jersey area. Are you still a little unclear about what rigging is? In today’s blog post, your standard and industrial rigging company, Stephen Izzi Trucking & Rigging Inc. will be discussing some of the more basic and broad services that a crane and rigging company can provide.

Basic Services

While we know many of the people visiting our website already have an idea of what rigging is because you are obviously in search of rigging companies, but we hope that this post informs you of a use for rigging services that you did not know prior to this post.

Machinery Moving

Do you have a piece of machinery, likely industrial, that needs to be moved a short distance but is simply too heavy? Luckily, rigging companies like ours can help! For products that are simply too heavy for sheer manpower or the equipment that you have on site, a crane with rigging might be the perfect solution for you. Rigging uses leverage and a series of pulleys and other systems to lift objects that would otherwise be immovable.

Are you moving the machinery farther than just across town? No worries, because our rigging company also offers heavy haul trucking services all across the country. If you have a large piece of machinery that needs moving, don’t hesitate to contact us here at Stephen Izzi Trucking & Rigging Inc.  


Are you building yourself a home? Or are you building yourself a business property? Well, it doesn’t really matter, because here at Stephen Izzi Trucking & Rigging Inc. we offer both standard rigging and industrial rigging services.

Erecting is the act of building something, in most cases referring to building a taller structure. Whether it be that you need a center pole erected for a pole-barn, or concrete walls erected for the exterior of an industrial office building, crane and rigging companies like us can help. Much like the use of rigging in the act of moving machinery, rigging utilizes leverage and height to help lift tall and top heavy objects. If you are building and are in need of a quality and experienced rigging team, contact us today.


Do you have a heavy item on the ground floor that needs to be on the top floor? Have you tried just wishing it would magically appear where you want it? Just as we suspected, it probably didn’t work. Something that will work though is calling a crane and rigging company like ours here at Stephen Izzi Trucking & Rigging Inc.

The act of hoisting something usually requires a crane. The first step is to properly tether the cargo, whatever it may be, to the crane’s pulley system. Once the riggings are in place, it is possible for the operator of the industrial rigging crane to lift, or hoist, the object up to the height it needs to reach. The importance of having a crane when hoisting objects or materials is immeasurable, as the ability to move the crane laterally makes for an efficient and precise placement of the cargo.

Jacking & Shoring

Initially, this service may seem rather easy to figure out, as jacking, indeed does refer to the act of using jacks to lift an object, but the latter may seem a little less familiar. Shoring is the process of supporting a building, structure, vehicle or any other physical structure with temporary supports. This can be done for many reasons, but are most regularly used to lift older buildings or support large walls that have recently been erected, but regardless of the task, we can help you.

At Stephen Izzi Trucking and Rigging, we offer a plethora of services as a crane and rigging company, but one of the coolest services that we offer is jacking and shoring. Because jacking and shoring is diverse in the nature of its uses, be sure to contact us today to talk about the logistics of your project.
