Many industries and projects utilize mobile crane rentals instead of purchasing a crane for permanent use. A crane rental provides the same level of performance and reliability without the high purchase cost, storage requirements, and maintenance needs. Though there are many providers of mobile crane rentals, some may not be a good fit for your needs. As leading providers of mobile cranes for all types of projects, TNT Crane & Rigging understands the importance of choosing the right provider. That is why they have provided a list outlining what to look for in a mobile crane provider to help you make an informed decision for your project.

4 Things to Look for When Choosing a Crane Provider

To ensure that you are partnering with the right mobile crane provider, be sure to look for the following:

1. Relevant Industry Experience

To ensure optimal results and safety, you should choose a provider that knows what they are doing. Look at client reviews and ask for references to ensure that the provider is experienced with your industry and the common challenges associated with it. For example, if your project involves the assembly of wind farm equipment, you should look for a provider with a proven track record in similar projects. If a provider has not handled similar projects, they may not be able to provide a suitable recommendation.

2. An Extensive Crane Lineup

What types of mobile cranes does the provider offer? This should be a question that is asked early during your search to determine if a provider is suitable for your project. Take note of the types of mobile crane rentals they offer, their supported brands, and their capacity ranges to determine if they have a unit that will meet your requirements. If you are not sure which crane is suitable for your project, a skilled provider should be able to help you find one after asking some questions.

3. Credentials and Proof of Insurance

When you rent a mobile crane, it is the responsibility of the provider to provide you with all safety amenities. Every provider should be able to provide proof of insurance and other credentials upon request. In addition to these credentials, it is worth asking the provider if their rentals include an operator to perform your lifts. If they do not, you will need to hire or train an operator yourself.

4. A Transparent Overview of Their Services

You should always know exactly what you are getting and how much it will cost when you rent a mobile crane from a provider. This will make it easy to track expenditures and maintain a consistent budget.
