It takes more than muscle to maximize efficiency.

To some, moving your rig or oilfield equipment from site A to B can be as easy as simply owning a truck. But when you work with Aveda, you have an expert team of planners and movers you can trust to pull out all the stops to keep your operation safe and on schedule—so you can get back to business.

We call our process the Aveda Advantage, and it’s what sets us apart from anyone else in the industry. For every move, expect the following attention to detail, most of which occurs before we even arrive.
