If you are a building contractor then you are probably incredibly frustrated because you are unable to bid for the much larger jobs because you don’t have the essential equipment like heavy lifting cranes. It means that your much larger competitors get these particular contracts and so they continue to grow and to prosper. The good news for you is that you can now hire a crane for the duration of the job and now you can factor the cost of doing so into your tenders when you bid for your next big government job.
It was never possible to do this in the past and so the only way you could get hold of a crane in Perth was to purchase one out right. This meant spending close to $1 million to purchase a piece of heavy equipment that you might only use a few times a year. It did make any financial sense and so you’re left to fight over the smaller contracts that you were able to do. If you’re still a little bit reluctant to bid for those larger jobs then maybe the following benefits of being able to hire a crane can give you the confidence that you need.
- It saves time – Currently if equipment needs to be moved from one side of a building site to another then you need to get your workers to do it for you. This means that they are tied up moving things and they should be doing the job that you hired them to do in the first place. Contracts run over and so you receive financial penalties as well as not been able to finish the contract on time. Having access to crane hire will save you an incredible amount of time and energy.
- It saves money – When you think of the cost involved in buying a crane out right and then having to maintain it throughout the year, it runs into many thousands of dollars. The fact that you have the option to rent takes all of the responsibility for maintenance of your shoulders and onto your service provider.
Now that you know that crane hire is possible, you can start to factor in the cost when you bid for any new building opportunities and hopefully your company can go on to be more successful and more profitable. There are also discounts available with regard to the duration that you hire the crane for and so the longer that you need it, the cheaper it will become.
