Insurance Considerations for Crane Hire

Insurance Considerations for Crane Hire

As with any work carried out within the construction trade, when hiring a crane there are a number of things that need to be taken into consideration, not only to ensure that the work carried out runs smoothly, on time and effectively but also to ensure that all relevant health and safety guidelines are adhered to whilst the crane is in your possession. It’s also of vital importance that you and the users of the crane are fully insured for all possible risks that come with crane hire Birmingham.

At Machinery Installation we’ve been hiring cranes to a range of customers from those working in the construction trade to domestic customers who are doing a bit of renovation and require the strength of a crane to help move materials. But before we allow one of our cranes to be transported out, we’ll always make sure that those who will be using it are fully insured.

This includes being covered for any loss or damage to the crane – something which can be extremely common on a busy building site, especially if the crane is used by someone who isn’t properly trained.

Along with being insured for any potential loss or damage to the vehicle during crane hire Birmingham it’s also important to have the right level of insurance for the job at hand. For example, if you’re hiring just a crane from us here at Machinery Installations, then all the work the crane does is under your responsibility and should something go wrong, it is again down to you.

Unlike hiring a car whilst on holiday, crane hire Birmingham isn’t just a case of picking up the phone and asking for one to be delivered. Instead there are a lot of things to take into consideration, but we’re here to guide you through the legal requirements quickly and easily.
