Hiring cranes and plant is inevitably accompanied by risk and with the cost of a modern mobile crane ranging from £260,000 to in excess of £4 million; the financial consequences for customers in the event of a serious incident are significant.
BS7121 – Safe Use of Cranes – notes the risks and highlights the need to protect against their consequences through comprehensive insurance cover.
Bryn Thomas Cranes is able to offer a damage waiver on CPA hires which is specifically tailored to the crane hire market at an increased cost. Should the customer require cover for lifted goods, this is available and can be arranged as an extra. Please discuss this with a BTC depot manager or email email@example.com for details.

Crane Hire Cost & Contract Lift Prices
We provide CPA crane hire and CPA contract lifting based on excellent values of quality, safety and service.
Although cranes are essential for large-scale construction jobs, operating them doesn’t come without risk. One wrong move could end disastrously, resulting in damage to property or equipment or injury to members of the public and workers on-site.
This is why all businesses are legally obligated to have the necessary insurance cover in place when hiring and operating a crane.
Whilst Public Liability insurance will spare your business the expensive outlay of compensation claims and legal action, the team here at Bryn Thomas Cranes can advise you on the comprehensive cover you need to protect the hired crane, members of staff, goods being lifted, and plant.

It’s difficult to put a price on crane hire insurance as, much like anything else, it depends on the specifics of your project and company.
For instance, the price of your crane hire insurance policy will increase if claims have previously been made against your business, or if you intend to operate the crane in a hazardous location.
The amount of cover you need will also determine the cost – with contract lifts including full instance cover in the overall price, and a waiver charged at an agreed percentage for CPA crane hire.
The good news is that here at Bryn Thomas Cranes, we pride ourselves on offering some of the most competitively priced policies around and are confident that you’ll be hard-pushed to beat our rates.

It usually depends on the type of crane hire service you opt for.
For example, if you choose a CPA crane hire, you will be responsible for providing your own Public Liability insurance for at least £5 million, as well as cover for damage to the crane, continuing crane hire charges during repairs, and lifted goods.
With contract lifting, the crane hire company takes care of every aspect of the lift, including insurance. However, it’s still recommended that hirers ensure they have cover in place for their own negligence, poor ground conditions and inadequate or incorrect information regarding the ground or lift.
