The beginning of your construction start-up can be an exciting new journey for a construction entrepreneur. Balancing the requirements of each job and work site can be tricky and having access to construction equipment can make a difference on the outcome of any job. However, it may dawn on you that the costs associated with purchasing construction equipment are pretty high. That’s why in this blog, we’re going to focus on the SuperDeck and SuperCrane, and how our fleet can help you in the early period of your start up, get you started and continue to fuel your growth.
When starting out in your construction start-up, you and your team will come across varying construction jobs that range in size and capacity and will require different construction equipment at any point during the construction project. It only makes good business sense to save on initial outlay by hiring out construction equipment as and when you need it for different jobs, such as crane hire.
Money and time are resources that are both saved when you consider construction equipment hire, because when owning certain equipment, like cranes, you need the time and expertise to properly service, inspect and ensure each piece of equipment is working well and safe to use.
That’s where Preston Hire’s range of SuperCrane fleets and Preston Hire’s value for safety can enter the picture. Preston Hire’s SuperCrane fleet are not only well-maintained, but they can be used on both small and large work sites. The fleet available for crane hire is made up of Kato, Maeda, UNIC, Liebherr, SANY and Sennebogen machines.
At Preston Hire, our mini cranes are the ideal solution for small domestic and commercial construction projects where a standard crane would be too large. You can look at our mini crane hire fleet here.
When working on the construction of multi-level buildings, it’s definitely necessary to have a safe way of taking heavy materials to other levels as needed. However, purchasing solutions to this problem usually comes at a high cost that may not fit within the budget range accessible for start-ups.
This is where the Preston Hire SuperDeck comes in. SuperDeck is a drawer-like loading platform that can load larger, heavier items or materials to upper levels when constructing tall buildings. The SuperDeck is a retractable loading platform system ideally positioned vertically one above the other for fast delivery of building materials, directly to the designated floor of a multi-storey building. The average 5 storey building requires five units whilst larger 50 storey buildings may need between 30 decks.
The SuperDeck loading platforms are the result of innovative design and engineering, making it the industry leader for its high performance and consistently high levels of safety. Traditional construction loading platforms stagger the stacking of units. SuperDeck, with its superior vertical stacking, improves the safety and efficiency of materials handling. Obstructions to crane ropes and loads are reduced, allowing for safer and more efficient operation of cranes. Shorter crane operation times not only boost safety but are more cost effective too.
Thanks to its additional safety harness points, which allow loads to be vertically stacked and rolled in and out as needed, the SuperDeck has resulted in the increased efficiency of material handling as well as being much safer and cost-effective for construction companies to rent out, making it the perfect option for start-ups.
Here’s where money gets involved. To buy your own crane or elevating work platform will cost you a fair bit – take a look at google shopping results for “crane” and you’ll see what we mean. Not only this, but you will also need to cover the costs of maintenance, service and repairs. Additionally, where would you store the construction equipment? Ideally, a warehouse would also need to be rented or purchased to ensure it stays safe overnight and isn’t a hazard to anyone else during severe wind and rain. Finally, when you purchase large construction equipment, you have to be certain you are going to be frequently using it, otherwise it’s a waste of a lot of money.
The other option is to rent the equipment you need. Which enables you to eliminate any maintenance, service, repair and storage costs, with you only needing to pay for the rental fees per day. This is a perfect choice for start-ups since you can take advantage of using the high performance equipment without burning a hole in your wallet at once.
It makes smart business sense to opt for construction equipment hire when starting out in your construction start-up. Preston Hire’s extensive range of crane hire with our SuperCrane fleet and loading platforms with our SuperDeck fleet will definitely add value and will benefit your start-up with our safety expertise in servicing and maintaining our construction equipment. By saving time and costs with our crane hire and loading platforms, any construction start-up will be in a better position to grow by cutting out costs associated with purchasing costly pieces of construction equipment and opt for construction equipment hire instead.
