You can rest assure that we always have a great selection of equipment to suit every construction project. It doesn’t matter what your needs are, the chances are we have the right crane for your needs.
We are experts in equipment hire and handling materials.

The cranes we rent out are safe and dependable, and they are designed to carry large loads over pedestrians and crew members. The equipment at Preston is serviced regularly and is among the most reliable in the industry. When you rent any construction machinery from an Australian hire company, it’s important to make sure it has up-to-date service records, as well as safety and lifting equipment records.
Those details are important and should never be overlooked or taken for granted, because if they are taken for granted, then your project may be unsafe and won’t be completed in time (as well as violation Australian safety requirements and guidelines). Also, it’s important to rent equipment from a company that uses advanced technology, as well as one that provides cranes that don’t make a lot of noise or produce a lot of pollution. Furthermore, they need to be comfortable to use and they need to be efficient.
Also, the company you work with should have experts because this type of work involves a lot of rigging, dogging and much more. A team should have plenty of experience servicing cities throughout Australia. If a company has a lot of experience, then you can count on having a smoother operation, which can save you time.
Safety is important, and you can observe this when the crew is working. The Australian industry has guidelines that must be followed, and a crane hire crew will follow steps that are guided by the industry’s compliance. It’s important that industry standards are followed by a crane rental company and that their cranes are serviced on a regular basis and they should be inspected regularly. In no way, shape or form should a company ignore safety because this can create an unsafe working environment.
Preston Hire brings you a great fleet of SuperCrane cranes in Australia including mini crawlers and larger crawler cranes. Having the right type of crane will make a big difference in your project. If you’re out there looking for a SuperCrane, you need to find one that is best suited for the work or project you have. With the advancement in technology, our safe dependable cranes are able to perform complex jobs. Almost, all projects involving construction and demolition, or the transport and shipping of large loads and heavy materials will require powerful lifting cranes. The success of a project will depend on the kind of crane you select. Having a suitable crane will help prevent accidents, damages, and save you time as well as money. It also helps improve your workplace safety and compliance.
In the realm of heavy-lift cranes you can find today there are some traditional and newer players but mini crawler cranes and the larger cranes are among the most common machines. Every crane is designed to perform a specific function, so you need to understand the nature of your project, capacity requirements, and the work to be done by the cranes.
Mini crawler cranes
Mini crawler cranes, also referred to as spider cranes, are compact and versatile. They have been engineered to move and lift loads in hard-to-access areas. These cranes are characterised by their minimal tail swing and small footprint. Designed to access almost any job site, you can use SuperCrane mini crawler cranes for a wide range of industrial, construction, and building jobs. These cranes embrace the concept of “less is more” in crane applications.
Rapid advancement in high-performance technologies has ensured that spider cranes remain compact whilst not compromising on their lifting potential. Also, mini crawler cranes utilise a highly innovative load distribution technology that does not require the use of outriggers. The cranes have a 360 degree slewing without tail swing. Mini crawlers reduce disruptions in job sites and get the job finished quickly. They can safely work in confined spaces and have less access planning within existing sites, saving transportation and time costs. Also, they have higher safety standards to ensure the best in workplace welfare.
Mini crawler cranes ensure mobility and stability. These cranes are designed with tracks like a tank, but you also find some fitted with robust all-terrain wheels. They are the crane of choice on difficult terrain and they are stable even on grounds that slope. Mini crawler cranes can access uneven grounds, Greenfield sites, inaccessible areas, landscaped areas, or elevated areas in Perth and other cities.
Tips for Choosing the Right Crane in Australia
Many things come into play when it comes to selecting the right crane hire.\
It’s important you determine the load weight you intend to lift or move using a crane. You will need to get a crane that has the right lifting capacity to be able to move the load. Again, if you have a high-capacity crane and you’re only lifting a small load, you could end up wasting labour, time, and money. Choosing the wrong capacity crane for your requirements could result in job site accidents or damage the load you are lifting or other objects. You should determine the kind of load you want to move and consult PrestonHire if you have any questions on lift capacity. For instance, if you will be moving a liquid-filled tank, it will require special conditions when compared to moving something like a heavy machine of concrete block.
Determining the height of the load to be lifted is as important as determining the load capacity of a crane. The crane’s boom length depends on how high you will be moving the material. You also want to check the condition of the weather like the wind. Lifting loads too high will mean that wind is likely to sway it leading to potential accidents. According to the height of the lift, you may want to ensure that you adjust the counterweight.
Moving distance – horizontal
Like vertical distance, cranes also move horizontally to pick up and move loads. If you are moving equipment from one location to another via a crane, you can choose a mobile crane that has wheels. A crane with rails is suitable for a fixed path of load movement. To ensure safety in horizontal crane movements, you want to look at three factors: support structure, counterweight, and boom’s stability. Make sure that you check the load weight that is rated for the specific crane you are hiring.
Cranes need a support structure to ensure their stability when holding to the ground. A support structure is an important element when it comes to stabilisation of the crane as well as the load. Depending on the terrain, ensure you get a suitable crane in Australia. If you are working through uneven terrain, you should select the support width carefully. For a rough terrain like on off-road construction sites, it paramount that you hire rough-terrain cranes designed for that kind of environment. When working within a firm, flat terrain, you can use truck-mounted cranes because they ensure mobility and stability. The crawler travel gear delivers excellent off-road handling and maneuverability.
Access to the site
When driving the crane to the site, there are many obstacles you may encounter as well as safety issues. Some sites may not have paved access roads large enough to accommodate a crane. Sometimes, you may be operating within a building like a warehouse. When it comes to evaluating the accessibility to a site, you have to be creative. A mini crawler crane, for example, may be suitable for confined spaces.
When hiring a crane, make sure you inspect it as well as the site you will be using it. This helps identify potential safety hazards that can complicate a project. Many obstacles can occur around a site and when moving a crane. You need to look at things like streetlight poles, power cable, scaffolds, overhead catwalks, tall trees, and buildings. These present potential hazards in the use of the cranes. At PrestonHire, you are working with an ethical crane hire company with a strong commitment to safety, health, environmental sustainability, and quality control.
