When you’re choosing a crane hire company, it pays to be vigilant and very thorough in the process – whether you’re building a small structure or a huge building. After all, you’re choosing a company that is going to build the structural backbone of your project and you need to ensure that you have a safe, reputable company behind you.
With any building project there is the potential for things to go wrong, especially when it comes to crane hire; knowing that your building site is in safe hands is going to make the construction process a lot less stressful for you and your team. There are a few things that you should always consider when looking for a crane hire company.
You need to ensure that the people you choose to hire your crane from are experienced professionals. The GGR team has built up 20 years of crane hire experience and has worked on all sorts of projects from erecting a theatre set in Regent’s Park to glazing London’s Shard.
To have an experienced firm is really important when you’re dealing with a potentially stressful situation during the course of your project. Knowing that the people or company that you’re hiring have dealt with every possible permutation of every kind of situation before, will make the whole process a lot easier. You should also ensure that your chosen company has experience that directly relates to the job that needs doing.
Safety has to be a primary concern and just as important as experience when it comes to crane hire. You need to place a high priority on safety as it’s going to be fundamental to a successful job. When you consider the safety of a company, you need to take into account the crane’s construction, the maintenance record of the crane that you’re going to be hiring and also the safety record of the person who is going to be operating the crane. To give you peace of mind, GGR can provide an experienced technical operator for the particular type of crane you’ve hired.
Whether you’re looking for a mobile crane, a tower crane, or a mini crane, you need to make sure you’re looking for the latest models and for cranes that have good reputations. Here at GGR we have top-notch equipment and provide our mini cranes at a competitive price. Speaking of price – that’s also an important thing to consider, but it should always come after safety and experience – because if you compromise on price and choose affordability over safety, the consequences could be very costly.
A reputable crane hire company will be able to provide you a great product at a great price and you certainly shouldn’t be left feeling like you haven’t had value for money. You should always get the quote in advance so that you know what to expect, and what you should budget for. Companies that don’t provide quotes aren’t operating at an acceptable level, so ensure that you deal with a reputable company.
