Experienced Rigging from the Southeast's Go-To Mechanical Contractor

Midsouth Mechanical is one of the Southeast’s leading mechanical contractors providing safe, reliable and cost-effective rigging services. In fact, rigging has been a primary service offered by our business for over 25 years. Our rigging service focuses on two things:

-Safely moving heavy machinery by using the best equipment and most experienced riggers.

Our rigging department can provide any rigging requirement while offering affordable rates for their services. We focus on machine moving, millwrighting, and plant relocations.
