No matter what industry you serve, oil & gas, construction, wind energy or more, when you have a project that requires the use of a crane, how do you know which company to use? 

Working with a crane company is typically the most cost-efficient way to run your business because it saves you from having to buy multiple cranes for various projects, storing those cranes, and finding qualified operators to work them. 

If you’re hiring a crane company for a job, it’s important to find a quality company that checks all the boxes of safety, knowledge, equipment, and experience. 

Here at BOSS Crane we want to ensure that no matter what project you need to be completed in whatever industry you serve, the job gets done right the first time, every time. 

If you’re in need of a crane for a job, we’ve curated a list of 4 factors to consider when hiring a crane company. 


How many years of experience do you have in your industry? You know that the more experience you have the better you are at problem-solving, staying on task, and getting the job done correctly. 

Hiring a crane company that has experience in your industry also keeps the project’s timeline in check, and minimizes the chance of damage or injury. 

Ask the crane company about their experience in your industry and if they have worked on similar jobs.

Along with experience, safety should be the first priority when hiring a crane company. What are their standards for safety? How do they plan and prepare to keep the operator, equipment, and crew they are working with safe from injury? How do they prepare for the job at hand and keep the work area and project safe from damage? 

Your job is to ensure that everyone on site stays free from injury and there is no damage done to the project. Don’t let an inexperienced crane company that doesn’t value safety ruin your work. 


Don’t hire a company that isn’t forthcoming with all of their credentials and insurance paperwork. 

Ask for copies of the certifications of each person working on the job site, their safety/OSHA training credentials, and company insurance paperwork. 

In the event of an accident, you want to be covered! 


Hiring a crane company isn’t like hiring your neighbor’s kid to cut your grass. It takes skill and experience to stay on the timeline, keep everyone safe and get the job done. 

Ask for references of clients they have worked with in the past on similar projects and even in completely different industries. 

When you speak to past clients ask them about the company’s communication skills, ability to stay on task, professionalism, and more. The more people you speak with the better you can trust your decision to hire that company.
