Selecting the wrong Crane Hire company can be costly
When it comes to finding the right crane for a job it’s important to understand that there are weights, sizes and lifting capacities for all types of mobile cranes. Some important things to consider are the maximum height the crane needs to reach, how much weight the crane will need to hold, and what type of terrain the crane will be operating on. This process can be quite complex, so we’ve made it easier for you by providing 5 tips to hiring the right mobile crane company.
Types of Cranes Available
Before hiring any crane, understanding which one is best for your project is essential, especially when there are multiple cranes with different purposes. Getting in touch with a crane hire specialist beforehand is something we can’t stress enough, as it will allow you to have a thorough understanding of the crane required for your job.
Some of our most popular cranes used for a typical construction site are listed under Mobile Cranes.

Right Tools for the Job
If you’re new to hiring a mobile crane, it can be tricky to determine what equipment and professionals are required for the operation of the crane, so make sure that you ask a crane hire specialist any questions you may have. Our specialists at Premier Cranes & Rigging will be more than happy to provide you with a detailed list of options available to you, and even point you in the right direction in what is required for the job. Engaging in crane hire companies that manage the entire lift for you will ensure that no detail is overlooked when engaging in a crane hire service.
Safety & Experience is Everything
Remember, you aren’t just hiring a crane, you’re hiring trained specialists that are responsible for the operation of the crane and this is exactly why experience is essential when it comes to finding the right mobile crane hire company. Check out the company’s registration and licensing of mobile cranes to ensure you’re hiring from a reputable business with a wealth of experience. This is very important as you don’t want to be held liable if inspectors find any issues, if the operator is not licensed, or if there’s an accident during operation.

Each year our cranes undergo strict testing to ensure for maximum safety and security. Along with a history of safe and successful projects, we consider ourselves one of the safest mobile crane hire companies in Australia. Check out our past projects for a thorough understanding of how important safety is to us.
Hiring a crane means your company will have to agree to a contract with a number of terms and conditions for the period it is hired. Keep in mind that there are still a number of risks involved, however these are all explicitly outlined within the contract.
If you have any questions regarding the contract, make sure your company is fully aware of all of the conditions involved, and do not hesitate to get in touch with a crane hire professional who can explain these terms and conditions in full detail for you.
Lastly, but most importantly, is to consider the budget you have set and how much is required to afford the crane and the professionals that are needed for the operation. Note that you can save a significant amount of capital by hiring a crane on a short term basis if you do not require a crane for the entire construction process.
