Are you working on a project that needs a crane? Before you decide to hire the first one you see, you should take some important factors into account. For instance, where will the crane be travelling? In some areas of the country, permits are required for large machines, like truck-mounted cranes, before they are allowed on a highway. Such permits will need to be applied for ahead of time. For more tips about hiring cranes, take a look at these slides from Excel Cranes.
