Who we are

Thanks to precision planning, a track record spanning many years and the right vehicles, we master each and every challenge – irrespective of how heavy or difficult the haulage work is. From a start with a second-hand VW transporter in 1961, today over 50 Pfaff vehicles from elevating trucks to the crane are on the go for you.

Do your products need storing or do your machines need to be fitted, dismantled or cleaned? No problem at all - we also reliably deal with these tasks.


Would you like to know how everything began? We have summarized the decades since the 1960s in our chronicle!

Haulage work

Whether it is simply a matter of machines or complex equipment in your company or entire industrial plants, we have solutions for removals, relocation and haulage from start to finish.

Printing machines, machine tools and X-ray inspection booths figure prominently among the goods that Pfaff transports.

This is where our diverse vehicle fleet comes in, ensuring that order handling is done from one source.

The success or otherwise of these type of operations often depends on just a few centimetres or kilograms. We have a lengthy track record in e.g. transporting printing machines. We are also in our element bringing automobile industry test rigs to where they are needed and assembling them. We do it - effectively.

In particular, Pfaff transports printing machines, machine tools and X-ray inspection booths as well as many other machine types. Many steps are needed before you can manufacture goods with a machine, equipment or from an entire manufacturing site. They include planning, ordering, delivering, start-up, upkeep, maintenance and repairs as well as finally re-selling, dismantling and removal to the buyer’s or even to a different type of utilisation.

We can assist you in a large number of these steps.
