Who We Are
Cumberland Machinery Movers, Inc. is based in the beautiful Lake Cumberland Area of Somerset, Kentucky. Our founder, Steve Ping, had a vision to build the best independent rigging and industrial services company in the area. After leaving a machinery moving company that he was employed with for over 20 years, Steve and his wife Susie started Cumberland Machinery with a 1 ton truck and a landscaping trailer in his garage in 2004. Steve and Susie’s trust in God, experience, and impeccable reputation in the community allowed them to grow the company to the point that Cumberland was able to purchase Bailey Machinery Movers and Fabricators, Steve’s former employer, in 2011. Sadly, soon after he was able to see his vision become reality, Steve passed away in 2012.
Susie continues to be committed to their vision and commitment to our employees and customers.

As with our safety program, we don’t cut corners on insurance coverage. The short-term savings from using a company that cuts their rates by not being properly insured are definitely not worth the risks involved. Our coverage exceeds industry standards because we want to protect our customers’ equipment and interests as well as the interests of our company. We also qualify our subcontractors to ensure that their insurance coverage meets our standards. We also review whether additional coverage is necessary prior to every project to ensure that the proper coverage is in place.
