Buildings come in all different heights and for some jobs, sometimes a household ladder will not do.
For worksites where tall structures are being put in place, crane hire is available in order to make light work of heavy loads.
Manoeuvrable cranes come in a range of sizes, including 500 kg micro crawlers as well as 2,820 kg and 3,830 kg mini crawlers.
Cranes can also come with a two or four-person cage for transporting workers off the ground.
But even if you do not have a towering job to complete, there are floor cranes also available.
Engine hoist floor cranes can be utilised when removing or replacing engines and transmissions, while counterweighted floor cranes are able to reach over objects and lift - or lower - 500 kg worth of materials at a maximum height of 2.4 m.
When operating cranes, it is essential that the weight of the load is kept in mind - load cells are able to take the guesswork out of measuring, assessing up to 7,500 kg in weight.
For those looking for an all-in-one lifting and shifting option, truck mounted cranes are also available for hire.
