2. Total cost
This includes not only the initial price but also the cost of maintenance and usage as well. At Hawks Hire, we make sure that the cranes we stock are properly maintained and are in great working condition. Many models allow for easy transportation, lowering the cost of operation significantly.
3. Expert opinion
If you are not the person who will operate the crane, it is a good idea to bring an operator along or at least ask the opinion of one. They might have questions about practicalities that you don't think of but might make the difference between the right and wrong machine. Our crane operators have completed many successful projects across the UK, use our knowledge to your advantage!
4. Consider the job conditions
What sort of jobs do you need the machine for? Is it mainly rough terrain or flat surface? Will there be a lot of heavy loads or is it mostly smaller jobs in tight places? What about travelling distance to and from your base? How big is your area of operation?
5. Extra features
Many of the models we carry come with innovative new features that greatly increase their usability in different lifting situations. A well-designed equipment may seem more expensive at first but may bring in more income later due to it's increased capabilities. Ask us about technical details!
