Six Reasons to Hire a Full-Service Crane Company

Six Reasons to Hire a Full-Service Crane Company

There is a lot to do when it comes to preparing for a construction project. You have to draw up the plans, make sure they are approved and permitted by municipalities and put the right people in place to execute each aspect of the design and development of the building, road, or green space. 

At some point, you may find there are materials far too heavy to be moved by the machinery you have available. At that point, you know you're going to need to buy or rent a crane. 

When it comes to renting or buying a crane, there are numerous important factors to consider. Before you ever begin moving heavy objects, you need a plan for who will operate the crane, calculate the load you'll be lifting, and ensure every safety measure will be taken to protect lives and property. 

This can be a lot for which to plan during your already complicated project. Yet, there are few products that pose a greater risk if not operated correctly. 

One solution to significantly reduce the headache of crane operation on your job site is to rent from a full-service crane company. Here are a few of the benefits of working with crane companies that do it all. 


Benefits of Working with a Full-Service Crane Company

Here are six advantages of working with a full-service crane rental company, someone like Parker’s Crane Service.

1) Renting from a Full-Service Crane Company Ensures Experience

The Carolinas have a little bit of everything. Our terrain ranges from hard bedrock to soft sand. We can have blizzards and hurricanes in the same

Place during the same year. We have tightly-packed urban cities and wide-open country expanses.

2) Renting from a Full-Service Crane Company Helps with Planning

Planning is one of the most important parts of your job as a contractor. You are responsible for a lot of moving parts, and everyone needs a minute of your time. Crane operation requires a lot of preparation in and of itself. You may find you don’t have the time to meticulously plan every detail of crane operation. 

However, neglecting this process can make your job site unsafe. Having a full-service crane rental company on your team can make this most vital step much smoother than trying to navigate it on your own. 

3) Renting from a Full-Service Crane Company Answers Maintenance Questions

If you purchase a crane, you will need to store it and maintain it. A crane is a complicated piece of machinery with many intricately connected parts. 

Failure to properly maintain it will lead to significant issues down the road and can result in catastrophic failures on the job site. 

Renting from the right professional crane company means you don’t have to worry about whether a crane has been properly and meticulously maintained. 

4) Renting from a Full-Service Crane Company Ensures Licensed Operators are Available 

If you purchase a crane, you will then need to train and license members of your crew to operate it safely and effectively. You can’t afford to allow someone to operate it until they have the right credentials. 

Even then, you will want to let them begin with smaller projects before they are lifting potentially dangerous equipment and materials. 

Our licensing and qualifications include:

  • NCCCO Certified Operators
  • Certified/Qualified Riggers and Signal Persons
  • OSHA and MSHA Qualified Personnel
  • Hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly rental
  • 24/7 Emergency Service
  • DOA HUB Certified
  • NC SBE Certified
  • SC&RA Member

There is no substitute for expertise. Having a full-service crane rental company can help ensure you have the knowledge you need for safely moving heavy equipment and materials. 

5) Renting from a Full-Service Crane Company Establishes Commitment to Safety

There is nothing more important on your job site than safety. The right full-service crane rental operation knows that all too well. Parker’s Crane Service has a zero-tolerance policy regarding safety. That means our operators know that there is no room for error. 

The only way to ensure your operators have the experience to be as safe as you need them to be is by hiring your crane from a full-service crane company.

6) Renting from a Full-Service Crane Company Expands Your Team

General contractors and project managers are always looking for the best local experts for their projects. When it comes to crane operation, the right full-service crane rental company will expand your team of experts and help you better serve your clients. 

You will add another level of professionalism to your construction team with expert crane operators.
