Big job on? Crane hire is a great idea if you need to lift large, cumbersome loads. But with so many different types at your disposal, how do you know which crane to choose?
Although all cranes are designed to lift and transport goods reliably, they each bring their own set of advantages. Tower cranes surpass the load capacity of any other crane and mobile cranes are best suited to restricted or awkward locations, thanks to their compact size and excellent reach.
4 key benefits of mobile crane hire:
If space is at a premium, a mobile crane is the perfect solution. Mobile cranes don’t demand space like tower cranes, they simply use a small part of the working space available to successfully lift and transport goods safely.
Easy to set up in confined areas, such as sites surrounded by high-rise apartments and office blocks, or sites with limited entrance space, mobile cranes enable you to transport goods with ease – even if there are obstacles in the way.
- Quick set-up
Setting up tower cranes is a lengthy process, with lots of equipment required. Not the case for mobile crane hire. Mobile cranes only need a small amount of space to be stabilised and facilitate quicker set up times – allowing you to lift goods faster and complete your project in less time.
- Lift capacity
Although mobile cranes are significantly smaller in size when compared to other cranes, they are still tough enough to handle numerous lifting tasks. Using multiple axles and hydraulic power, they can safely lift heavy, awkward-sized objects between varying heights.
With mobile crane hire you can lift up to 10 tonnes of goods using a maximum working radius of 60m.
Mobile crane hire is a cost-effective solution for your next big project. By speeding up the lifting process it helps you to finish the task in hand quicker – and saves you the expense of buying a crane outright! By renting a new model every time, you can benefit from the most innovative lifting technology whilst still keeping your costs to a minimum.
