Blogs About Troubleshooting and Maintaining Heavy Construction Equipment and More

Welcome to my blog. My name is Dan, and I used to work in the construction industry. There I wore a hard hat, but I also wore a lot of other 'hats', from labour to management. Now I've moved on from that industry, but as a property investor, I frequently hire construction crews or contractors. I have a few rentals and some homes that I fix up to sell. At any rate, I've been around heavy equipment for a significant part of my life, and now I want to create a blog to give back. These posts will be about troubleshooting and maintaining heavy construction equipment.

3 Reasons to Hire a Crane Rigger Through Your Crane Rental Company

If you're going to be renting a crane, you have probably already had to make a lot of decisions. You've probably decided on the type and size of crane that you want to rent, and you may have already found a crane rental company to rent from. Now, though, it's time for you to decide who you are going to hire to operate the crane for you.

You can look for an outside crane rigger, but instead of starting your search on your own, you should ask someone from your chosen crane rental company about whether or not they have crane operators available for hire. If they do, this may be your best bet for hiring a crane rigger for these reasons.

1. Find a Crane Rigger More Quickly

Now that you have found a crane rental company and made arrangements to rent a crane, you might be ready to get started with your project as soon as possible. If you aren't able to find a good, reliable crane operator in time, then you could fall behind schedule. You can speed up the process of finding someone to operate the crane if you simply ask someone from the crane rental company. Then, you can make sure that your project gets started on time, and you can avoid falling behind schedule. Plus, you won't have to spend as much of your limited time on looking for a crane operator, so you can focus on other aspects of your project.

2. Avoid Issues With the Rental Company

You'll need to follow the recommendations and requirements of the crane rental company during your rental term if you want to avoid violating your contract or incurring additional charges. Hiring one of their crane operators will allow you to avoid any related issues. Also, if something goes wrong during the rental term -- such as if the crane operator makes a mistake that causes damage to the crane -- you'll probably find the issue will be a lot easier for you to handle, without as much of a concern for being liable for this damage.

3. Save Money on Crane Rigging Services

Renting a crane and hiring a crane rigger is often much more affordable than hiring a full-time crane operator and investing in a crane yourself, but of course, there are still expenses that you have to worry about. Hiring a crane rigger can be costly, but you might get a special discount if you hire a crane operator through the same company that you're already renting the crane from.
