What Is The Best Lifting Solution for Heavy Loads?
To determine the best lifting solutions for your particular heavy load requirement, it is important to understand a few factors relating to the job or application first.
- What is the load weight requirement of the job? Is rigging required?
- At what height does the heavy lift crane need to be able to operate at?
- Is there tandem or top & tail lifting requires?
- What is the sqm of the area in which the crane can set up?
- What is the terrain of the site where the crane will be working?
- What structures are in the way – if any?
- Do you have a professional operating and safety team?
- Do you require any other equipment such as telehandlers, lighting towers, forklifts, or MEWP’s too?
When you understand what the area, the application, the lifting and rigging requirements, and site establishment, you will be able to inform a heavy lift team of what it is you believe you need. However, if there is one inch of uncertainty, our team will do a site audit before sending through any costing. At Concord Cranes, we work together with our clients in understanding the exact, specific requirements of their project and site in order to suggest the best heavy lift crane and equipment for their needs. We pride ourselves in offering this kind of turnkey service to every customer on every project.
The Advantages of Using Heavy Lifting Cranes for Your Projects

Money can also be saved by not having to pay for staff and operator costs longer than you anticipated or pay over-time because the project will run according to plan.
