Birmingham Crane Hire FAQs

There is no definitive answer as the cost of hiring a crane will vary depending on a number of factors, such as the type and size of crane required, the duration of the hire, and the location. However, as a general guide, it is possible to say that hiring a crane in the UK can cost anywhere from £700  to £10,500 per day.

The reach of a mobile crane will vary depending on the type and size of crane, as well as the specific application. However, as a general guide, mobile cranes can typically reach up to around 45 – 100 metres.

In order to lift a load with a crane, the crane must be of an appropriate size and type for the job, and the load must be properly secured. The crane operator must also be trained and experienced in safely operating the crane.

In addition, there are various regulations that govern crane operation, which vary from country to country. In the UK, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 – BS7121 and L.O.L.E.R 98 Regulations sets out specific requirements for crane lifting. Employers must ensure that their employees are aware of these regulations and that the cranes being used are operated safely.

A crane hire risk assessment is a process whereby the risks associated with hiring and operating a crane are identified and assessed. This includes assessing the risks to employees, the public, and property. The aim of a crane hire risk assessment is to ensure that all potential risks are minimised, and that any remaining risks are acceptable.
