How to Hire a Crane Online

Hiring a crane can be a complicated process with lots of unknowns. From the size of the crane you need and the additional equipment you will require, to the specific type that will be most suitable for your planned lift, there’s a lot to consider. And while most crane hire companies will be able to help you, it can be hard to know where to start.

At Premier Cranes we aim to make doing business with us as easy as possible for our clients. And that’s why we’ve developed our online crane hire booking system. In just 3 simple steps you can discover what size crane you need and when a suitable crane will be available to hire. And if you require some support, our team of expert riggers and lifters are only a quick phone call away to help you get started!

Step 1: Finding the right sized Crane

The first step to hiring a crane online involves calculating the minimum size of the crane you require. To do this, simply use our handy sliders to enter the weight of the load you would like to lift and the approximate radius the load needs to be lifted. If you already know what size crane you need, then you can instead select a crane size this way.

Of course, it’s important to remember that our crane size estimator doesn’t take a few factors in to account like:

  1. The height of the lift
  2. Lifting gear deductions or hook weight
  3. Cases where the main boom length will be less than 20m

Step 2: Enter the Address where you need to Hire a Crane

Once you’ve calculated the right sized crane to hire, the next step involves entering the address of where you need the crane to perform the lift. This is important to enter as the travel time of the crane will affect how much it costs to hire (you can learn more about the different costs of crane hire here). We will also need your contact information, just in case we need to verify a couple of details.

Step 3: Choose what day you need to hire a crane

The final step involves selecting the date you need to hire a crane and choosing one of the available cranes that will fulfil your requirements.

Once you select your day and confirm, a summary of all your details will be provided as a confirmation. 

If you need to make any changes you can click on the “PREVIOUS” step to adjust your information. When you are happy to proceed simply click the “SUBMIT” button and our team will be in contact with you to check these details and ask some questions about your requirements; to ensure your online crane hire booking is processed correctly.
