Crane Hire: A Brief Overview

Hiring a crane might be necessary if you’re planning to expand your small business.  This is because cranes can speed up the construction of a bigger building for your company. However, these heavy duty machines can also pose a potential danger to your construction project if they’re not handled or used properly. For that reason, you should contact a credible company that can provide a crane suitable for your construction needs.

Crane use or crane lifting is definitely a high risk operation. You must plan it carefully to ensure that all your construction tasks are carried out safely.  Instead of renting a crane to use yourself, if you’re not confident about your skills in handling these machines, contact a crane hire company. Such a company has a team of qualified operators who are specifically trained for safe mobile operations and who will come to your site and operate the crane for you.


Contrary to popular belief, it is best to contact a crane hire company that is local. A local company can easily visit your exact location and assess the number and type of cranes needed for your construction project. You can then get an accurate quote and plan your budget ahead of time to avoid overspending.

Search online for prospective companies.  Pick at least three companies in your area that you could potentially hire. Arrange an interview with their representatives. Gather as much information as you can before deciding which company to hire. Make sure that the company you choose will be able to provide quality service in line with your construction needs, budget and safety requirements. Below is a detailed infographic from Excel Cranes. You can use it as a guide in determining the safety requirements for every crane hire.
