The Advantages of Crane Hire Compared With Buying
Posted on by mm-admin
Cranes and lifting equipment are a necessity for the upkeep of commercial and industrial sites, but buying them outright can represent a significant initial cost, as well as various other expenses that come with this option.
This latest post runs through some of the advantages your company can experience when choosing to hire cranes and lifting equipment from us here at Mechanical Movements, compared with buying them outright for your site.
1. Reduced Initial Outlay & Overall Cost
Even if you regularly require plant equipment to be lifted or removed, the actual initial outlay of buying crane and lifting equipment can be enormous compared with the cost of hiring a crane for the lifting work. There’s also the cost and logistics of having to hire or contract experienced operators to ensure effective and safe operation of this equipment – this can mean that any long-term savings are negated, as you still have a continuous cost for operators.
2. No Need To Worry About
Another cost and logistical nightmare can be dealing with maintenance and potential repair work on crane and lifting equipment that you buy outright. Like having to contract operators, this is another repeated cost that will last for the life of the equipment. Crane hire from us here at Mechanical Movements eliminates the need to worry about this, as we always undertake regular maintenance and repairs on all our equipment.
3. Increased Savings With Comprehensive Services
Another advantage from hiring crane and lifting equipment, particularly from us here at Mechanical Movements, is that you not only get this one portion of the service, but you also get a comprehensive service that can involve decommissioning of old plant equipment, the lifting of new equipment into place, the haulage of your new equipment to your site, and even the buying of your old equipment to help save you money on the entire operation.
