Lifting Crane Hire

How can you tell if your job requires the use of a crane to complete? This question is relatively easy because cranes provide a service unlike most other heavy equipment available. A crane allows you to easily lift extremely heavy loads of materials, many with weights upwards of several tons. A crane is also able to lift high and lower down into hard to reach locations that by any other means could not be reached or at least not be reached without disturbing the surroundings. A crane also has an extendable arm that allows it to reach heights unlike most construction vehicles. This allows contractors or movers to lift heavy objects to elevated locations as needed. So to tell if you need a crane or not, you would need to know if your job meets any of the above scenarios for what a crane is used for.
