A beginner’s guide to crane hire

Looking for crane hire in Manchester or Liverpool? Hiring a crane for the first time can be daunting but – with the help of our beginner’s guide and an experienced team, such as Bryn Thomas Cranes – the process can be very straightforward. 

Why use a crane? 

A crane is an extremely versatile piece of equipment that can be used for projects of all scales – making it easier for you to move heavy or awkward objects from areas of restricted access.

Choosing a crane hire company

Reputable UK crane hire companies, like Bryn Thomas Cranes, should have  a strong and favourable profile within the lifting industry. 

Bryn Thomas have achieved continual success since establishment, and it’s no real surprise why – they offer exceptional service 24/7 and hold health and safety at the forefront of everything they do. 

Being no stranger to wet and windy weather, you can count on Bryn Thomas Cranes to complete lifts in Manchester and Liverpool safely, without any delays.

Choosing a crane 

The type of crane you need will depend on the work you’re undertaking. Bryn Thomas Cranes are proud to supply some of the most technologically advanced and modern cranes on the UK market. 

Mobile tower cranes are great for smaller projects in built-up cities where space is restricted. They can be set up in narrow roads and are ready to be used within 30 minutes. Heavy duty cranes are tailored more towards larger projects and heavier lifting requirements that require a specialist solution.

If you’re unsure which crane you need for your project, don’t hesitate to get in touch with Bryn Thomas Cranes’ head office on 01352 733 984.

Choosing a contract service

Bryn Thomas Cranes specialise in CPA (Construction Plant Hire Association) crane hire and CPA contract lifting – but how do you know which to choose?

With CPA crane hire in Manchester or Liverpool, the majority of the liability will rest with you. Bryn Thomas Cranes will only provide the crane and operator. You would need to supply a lift supervisor, signaller, appointed person and insurance cover.

Different from crane hire in Liverpool or Manchester, CPA contract lifting is becoming increasingly more popular. It’s also possibly the best choice if you’re new to lifting, as it provides you with the peace of mind that all relevant personnel are on-site, ready to complete projects safely, and the bulk of the responsibility for the lift sits with Bryn Thomas.
