We'll help you move your equipment safely
Need to move tall equipment, materials or a ready-to-move home or building? We’ve got you covered. Today's equipment is bigger than ever, and that can lead to big problems when you're working around power lines. Call us before moving any equipment or materials near power lines. We’ll measure power lines in your yard or along a local road and help plan the safest route and lift the power lines, if needed.
Tall equipment and power lines don't mix. In Kakisa, Dory Point, Fort Providence, Sambaa K’e, Wekweeti, Hay River, Enterprise and the K’at’lodeeche First Nation, call 867-874-6879 or 1-800-264-5313 (toll free) if you have a high load to move. In Yellowknife and N’Dilo, call 867-873-4865.
TIPS FOR MOVING EQUIPMENT OR WORKING NEAR POWER LINES
Stay seven metres away from power lines
When operating grain augers, air seeders, dump trucks or other equipment, stay at least seven metres (23 feet) away from the line. If you must work closer, please call us.
Plan before moving tall equipment
Map your route, locate overhead power lines and be sure that you can cross safely under them. Be especially cautious if equipment is over 4.1 metres.
Never measure line heights or raise lines yourself
We’re happy to do that for you with the proper equipment and safety measures. Don't put yourself at risk.
