If you have a small construction company, you understand the need for having the right type of third-party services. One type of service you may need is a rigging service. Though most people only consider cranes and related rigger services, there are others that can be beneficial for your construction business needs. Here are a few of those services and what to consider about each one.
Jack and Slide
If you have small spaces that require crane services, traditional rigging may be a problem. With that in mind, you may want to consider services known as jack and slide. These services use a jack and slide hydraulic system to get into the tighter spaces. This allows you to not only have the rigger services you need for other aspects of your construction project, but also the rigger services you need within the tighter spaces that can cause construction delays. If you have many spaces that are tight or small and could delay construction, discuss them during the consultation.
Some of the jobs you will have as a small construction business may leave you with the need for an engineering consultation. For example, you may know that you need to have cranes working on multiple parts of the site. However, if you are dealing with multiple load capacities as well as spacing issues, then proper planning is required for safety and to meet the deadline of the job. Many rigging services will offer engineering consultation services as well. The consultant will take the job into consideration and offer the best engineering plan to achieve the final results you need in the least amount of time necessary.
You may run across some projects that require heavy haul rigging. This rigging can be tedious and can require more safety precautions than other rigger services. If you need this particular type of service, you will need to have several key points in mind for the consultation. For example, you will need to know the weight amounts, limits, spacing and the distance of the crane will need to move the heavy haul. From that point, your rigging service can take over and create the right plan and service package for your needs.
When you are ready to order third-party rigging services, make sure to consider the additional or specialty services they have available. Also, consider requesting an on-site consultation appointment. This type of appointment will allow the rigging service consultant to see the project first hand and offer better assistance with the project.
