The costs involved in commissioning and maintaining your own fleet of cranes or lifting equipment are prohibitive for most businesses – and is also outside their general area of expertise.
Mobile crane hire is the perfect solution. The USA construction business is segmented into roughly 350 trades, each of which has its own set of skills, its own expertise, and its own requirements.
Every one of them represents a full-time role within the industry. That's why construction projects often require input from a multitude of different contractors – and it is also why small crane hire is a better alternative than trying to run your lifting project yourself.
When you hire a mobile crane it is usually supplied with an operator. The operator is fully qualified to operate the plant on-site, and also to operate lifting machinery. He or she will have all the relevant licenses and health and safety qualifications.
If you wanted to carry out that same lift using a person in your own company or team, you would either need to find someone already qualified to operate a mobile crane or wait until they had passed the relevant health and safety test and achieved their NVQ to the proper level.
Your crane operator will be fully insured against damage, both to his or her equipment and to your own.
