How does a design of a system get started?

For all of our products we need to start with a post plan of the greenhouse and we will produce a simple Auto Cad drawing for your approval before quoting. 

If the drawing does not meet your needs we can continue to make changes till you are satisfied.

What else does TAVA need to know about my operation?

We need to know the size of the crop you are growing and the size of the pots you are growing in, the weight of the crop, how tall the greenhouses are and if it is a new build or existing greenhouses, or indoors and the size and shape of the greenhouses post is critical.

What options are available for Portable conveyors?
