Do I need a license to operate your SuperGlassHandling® Range?

You do not need a license to operate the glass handling units themselves, however we strongly recommend and advise you familiarise yourself with the operations manual and complete all relevant pre hire checks associated with the SuperGlassHandling™ Unit prior to operation. In addition, the majority of our glass handling units are designed so as to be used in conjunction with our range of mini cranes, for which you will need the relevant crane license. Alternatively, Preston Hire have a plethora of skilled crane operators at your disposal.

What if I’m not familiar with the operation your Glass handling implements?
