How to choose the right crane for your project

Hiring a crane for the first time? It can be an overwhelming task – especially when there’s a huge range to choose from – but with Bryn Thomas Cranes you can relax in the knowledge that you’re in capable hands.

We have supplied crane hire for aerospace, nuclear, petrochemical and infrastructure industries, for more than 15 years, with an ever-growing portfolio of prestigious blue chip companies.

At Bryn Thomas Cranes, we supply:

…each designed for a specific function.

To choose the right crane and ensure your site is safe for workers and the public, preparation and planning is essential. This preliminary work will help to reduce costs and inefficiency, keeping your project on schedule and within budget.

3 factors to consider when choosing your crane:

  1. Duration of project and size/weight of the load

Understanding what your project needs will allow you to quickly narrow down your options and establish the equipment that best meets your requirements.

The load a crane can bear is reduced as the height increases. The best practice is to contact crane hire specialists, like us at Bryn Thomas Cranes, to guide and advise you in making the right choice.

  1. Transportation of equipment

Safety is our number one priority, here at Bryn Thomas Cranes, and our team makes sure that cranes are transported smoothly and safely – preventing accidents and other traffic issues which pose hazards.

We always find the safest route when transporting your crane. Some cranes will have to take an ‘indirect route’ to avoid low clearance bridges or roads that are unsuitable for long/heavy vehicles, but we ensure the crane reaches your site in plenty of time.

  1. Site conditions

Crane hire choice also depends on the terrain and surrounding environment. Understanding the weather conditions, spatial constraints and ground conditions will make it easier for you to maximise your crane hire investment, selecting equipment that meets your objectives.

If you need a crane for your off-road construction site, a rough terrain crane is ideal and capable of working in environments where ground conditions are difficult.

For projects that require flexibility and precise delivery in tight, confined spaces – like narrow streets in the city centre – our mobile tower cranes are best-suited.

  1. Accessibility

Another factor that can impact on your crane choice includes the site and space restrictions.

Remember to think about buildings, power lines, trees and other structures that could obstruct the movement of your crane. Taking these into consideration will prevent any inconveniences, such as delays, occurring further down the line –  allowing you to complete your project sooner.
