commercial craneMany parts of North Carolina seem like they are always under construction. The Charlotte metro area is no exception. Whether it’s uptown, Matthews, Mooresville, Indian Trail, Fort Mill, or one of the many other suburbs, there is always something new being built. It is a good time to be a contractor in the Queen City area.

While Charlotte has been attractive to new businesses for many decades. With a pool of highly qualified, well-educated residents and business-friendly policies, we only expect the region to continue to grow. If your team is responsible for constructing commercial buildings, industrial parks, and the roads to navigate those areas, it is likely you will need to rent a mobile crane or two. Here is what you need to know about commercial and industrial crane rental.

What You Need To Know About Cranes for Commercial and Industrial Construction

1) There Are Many Types of Cranes

A crane is not a one-size-fits-all machine. There are many different types of cranes for various types of commercial and industrial projects. Some are mounted on trucks, others on tracks, still others on all-terrain wheels. In an area with all types of soil types, elevation, and terrain, your crane rental company will need to know as much as possible about your project to help you choose the right type of crane. 

2) You Need To Know the Terrain

The gentle hills of the Piedmont become foothills and tall, rugged mountains just west of Charlotte. Depending on the location of your project, within just a short distance from the city, you could be in either the sandhills or steep mountains. You may be dealing with thick red clay or granite boulders. Before you can choose the right crane for the job, you need to know what kind of terrain you are up against.

3) You Need To Know the Weight of the Load

You will need to give the crane company a sense of the size, shape, and weight of the loads you are moving. The more you know about the objects you are moving, the better the rental company will be able to determine the right crane for your needs. 

4) What You Want in a Crane Rental Company

You want a crane rental company committed to safety and high-quality customer service. Ideally, they will have the experience and expertise to help you have confidence in your crane rental every step of the way.
