How to Hire A Crane

You can hire a crane in two different ways and which way you choose depends on whether you have the necessary expertise and insurance cover in place to meet current legislation.

But did you know that all lifts involving a crane must have:-
  • a risk assessment or method statement carried out prior to any lift,
  • a qualified appointed person in charge of the operation,
  • and sufficient insurance cover for all personnel involved, members of the public, machinery and for the items being lifted?
