Capable of lifting vast weights in awkward spaces, crane hire is a great way to move materials quickly and safely – but how do you know which crane to choose?
You need to hire a crane that has both the strength and manoeuvrability to complete your lifts safely. At Bryn Thomas Cranes, we supply fleets for all project scales and can help you to make an informed choice about crane hire UK.
- City cranes
A city crane is suitable for built-up areas and projects on and off road.
City cranes are often used for construction work in the city as they are more compact in size and work well in areas that are difficult to reach. They have a short chassis and 2-axle design which allows you to lift goods with ease, preventing the risk of injury or damage.
- Heavy duty cranes
Heavy duty cranes generally operate in arduous conditions such as offshore applications – loading and unloading cargo from ships.
Heavy duty crane hire provides an economical solution for lifting 100 to 500 tonnes, speeding up your project and improving productivity.
- Mobile tower cranes

Mobile tower cranes have fantastic reach capabilities and provide a 360-degree overview. They are reliable for lifts of up to 10 tonnes.
- Self-erecting cranes
A self-erecting crane can be used almost anywhere. A great crane hire choice for locations where there are space constraints as it operates from a static position and moves smoothly without swinging.
