Whether you’re renovating your own home, or you are a builder renovating someone else’s, you’re going to need materials – and a lot of them. Depending on what part of the home you’re planning on renovating, a crane truck can be particularly useful for all the heavy lifting, from your antique cast iron bathtub, to the oak floorboards you can’t afford to damage. Crane truck hire is an ideal way for you to have those renovation materials delivered where they need to go, with little fuss.
Here are some of the reasons you should consider crane truck hire for delivery of renovation materials:
If you lift something too heavy, it can be detrimental to your health. In the workplace, it’s known as manual handling
, and is common on building sites, for industrial workers and within the agriculture industry. Manual handling, however, can be dangerous if you aren’t adequately equipped to move heavy loads. And this is the case if you’re DIY renovating, or working as a builder. We call it “breaking your back” for a reason – and heavy lifting is one of the largest causes
of lower back pain and back injury. Using a crane truck will save your back from any unnecessary stress.
While you could always get your friends or apprentices to help you carry your new floorboards or roofing panels one-by-one from the back of a truck to where they need to go on the work site; it’s going to be a lot faster if you can do the moving in bulk. A crane truck will deliver the items exactly where you need them to go, so you have minimal lifting and more time to work on other crucial aspects of the build.
If your renovations include new roof panels, or perhaps you are renovating the top level of a two storey house, a crane truck has the benefit of reaching high and tight spaces. Because crane trucks are generally small in size, they are easily manoeuvrable as well throughout the property. This means you can get the materials to where you need them to be, without any hassle. Crane trucks are designed to lift and lower materials, as well as moving them both horizontally and vertically – whatever you require.
Whether you are renovating yourself, or you run a construction site, crane truck hire is guaranteed to save you money. To start with, you don’t have to buy the machinery yourself – you simply pay a fee for the period of time you want to use it. Secondly, you don’t have to pay anyone to help you move all the materials. A job that would take ten tradies five hours to complete, will only take a few minutes with a crane. This allows for better productivity as everyone can focus on getting the renovations completed, rather than worrying about how they are going to get the materials in the right place. It’s well worth the investment.
