Why Crane Hire is Better Than Buying

In the construction industry, cranes are indispensable. They are the backbone of any large-scale project, facilitating the lifting and moving of heavy materials. However, the question often arises: is it better to buy a crane or to hire one? At Complete Lifting Services, we firmly believe that hiring a crane offers a multitude of advantages over purchasing. Here’s why.

Financial Flexibility

Buying a crane is a significant investment, often requiring a large upfront payment. This can strain your company’s finances and limit your ability to invest in other essential areas. Crane hire, on the other hand, offers financial flexibility. You pay for the crane only when you need it, freeing up capital for other business needs.

Maintenance and Repairs

Owning a crane means you are responsible for its maintenance and repairs, which can be both time-consuming and costly. When you hire a crane from Complete Lifting Services, we take care of all maintenance aspects, ensuring that the crane is in excellent working condition when it arrives on your site.

Latest Technology

The construction industry is continually evolving, with new technologies emerging regularly. When you own a crane, updating to a newer model can be prohibitively expensive. Hiring a crane allows you to take advantage of the latest technology without the financial burden of updating your own equipment.

Expert Support

When you hire a crane from Complete Lifting Services, you’re not just hiring a piece of machinery; you’re also gaining access to our team of experts. Our skilled operators and engineers are available to ensure that your project runs smoothly, providing invaluable advice and support.


Different projects require different types of cranes. Owning a single crane can limit your ability to take on a variety of projects. Hiring gives you the flexibility to choose the right crane for each job, whether it’s a tower crane for high-rise construction or a mobile crane for smaller projects.

Regulatory Compliance

Safety regulations and standards are stringent in the construction industry. When you hire a crane from Complete Lifting Services, you can be assured that all equipment is compliant with current regulations, reducing your liability and ensuring a safer work environment.


The benefits of crane hire over buying are numerous: financial flexibility, lower maintenance costs, access to the latest technology, expert support, versatility, and regulatory compliance. At Complete Lifting Services, we offer a range of cranes to meet your specific project needs, backed by our industry expertise. Make the smart choice; opt for crane hire.
