Dependable, Safe Equipment

Right from the start, cranes have to be safe and dependable. They are being trusted to carry heavy loads over crew members as well as pedestrians. You need to be sure your machinery has up to date servicing, safety and lifting records and that they also have work cover certificates.

If these details are overlooked, the project can be delayed or, even worse, it could be done in an unsafe manner resulting in injuries to your team or the public. It is so important that you choose a company that hires low-pollution machinery that get the job done with a minimum of noise. You also have to find equipment that is efficient, come with advanced technological features and are comfortable to use for long hours.

Preston make sure that the industry standards are maintained by having all cranes in the fleet serviced regularly, and we also conduct routine safety inspections.

Selecting the Right Model

The type of crane that you end up hiring will greatly depend on a few key factors:

  • the height that you need access to
  • how much weight (load) you need it to hold onto at particular heights
  • the landscape of the area you'll be operating it on
  • site access and transportation

The Reach

The maximum height your crane will be operating at will obviously vary from site to site. You should make sure you know exactly how high your crane needs to reach beforehand. Even a few meters shy of what you need can cost you serious time and money. You also need to make sure you don't pay too much for a larger model than you need. Preston Hire has a huge range of cranes with different reach specifications to choose from.

The Capacity

You also need to know the weight of the typical loads your equipment will need to carry. The materials you're working with are also essential to take into consideration. Crane models vary greatly in their capacity, all the way between 12 to 130 tonnes. If you're unsure of which model will be best, just call Preston and we will assist you with calculating your load/capacity requirements.

The Terrain

Finally, be sure to survey the land you'll be working on beforehand. A fairly smooth terrain will be served by most models available. However, you'll need something a bit more specialisation if there's a lot of uneven and overly rocky terrain around. Preston Hire specialises in all-terrain machines, with a huge range of all-terrain models.

Site Access and Transportation

You need to consider the width and length of the crane from an operational and transportation stand-point. Preston Hire can provide delivery of a crane to your site, alternatively you can arrange your own transportation, however you will need to make sure you measure up the track width requirements and ensure your transport has the required capacity.
