Hiring Riggers To Assist With Your Crane Lift

When you need to lift something very large and heavy, a crane is most likely the first thing you consider. The crane is almost always supplied with an operator to do the lift but it takes more than just hooking a big hook to the item to be lifted and going up with it. Just like hiring a crane with an operator, you need to have a crew of riggers on site that can prep the load for the lift and secure it so that when the crane lifts it, the load stays safe and the crane handles it without any problem,

Hiring A Crane

There are plenty of crane services that have varying size cranes available for hire. Some have riggers that will work with the crane operator but if they do not, the responsibility for hiring riggers will fall to you. Talk to the crane service and find out what size crane you will need to get and when it is available. Once you have this information sorted out, it will make it easier to find the rigger crew and get them booked as well. Hiring a crane and rigging crew is done for safety. If you hire the crane, you should not be operating the machine unless you are qualified to do so.

Delays and issues

When you have the date and time for your lift set, the last thing you want to hear is that there is a delay. Sometimes it is whether is too blame, other times there may be a technical issue that stops the lift. If the crane operator says no lift today, you have to defer to his judgment. He knows the machine best and a few days difference, while it can be costly, it is cheaper than replacing a crane just to make a date or deadline. Life and safety should never be eliminated from the consideration when deciding rather or not to move forward with the lift.

Common Lifts

Some of the most common lifts that are made with a crane are building materials being lifter to a high floor, HVAC units being lifted to the roof of a building, and moving heavy objects around the construction site. No lift should be made without an engineer or rigger first looking at all the possible issues and determining the best and safest way to make the lift. Even lifting a welder or toolbox can be hazardous because of the contents of the box. Even a small item, when dropping from about, can hurt or kill someone below.
