What to Consider When Buying Lifting Equipment in Staffordshire

To lift heavy loads safely and efficiently, you need the right lifting equipment. But how do you know what equipment will work best for your business? From slings and lifting chains to cranes and spreader lifting beams, there are plenty of options to choose from. In this post, our engineers will show you the key factors to consider when buying lifting equipment in Staffordshire.

1. Location

One of the most important factors to consider when sourcing lifting equipment is where you intend to house it. Your new system needs to be conveniently placed to access the materials to be lifted, but it also needs enough space to operate properly.

If you’re unsure where to place your new lifting equipment or what will fit in the space you have available, our engineers will be able to conduct a site visit and give you some professional advice.

2. Installation Requirements

Depending on the type of lifting gear you need, it may need to be bolted into place, or it could be free-moving. Do you have a premises that can accommodate installation work? If you rent out your space, you may need to check with your landlord before authorising any installation work.

3. Capacity

Different lifting tools have different weight capacities, so it’s essential to think about what you want to lift or move with your new equipment.

Even if you’ll usually be lifting lighter loads, you need to know the maximum load your new lifting equipment will be working with so we can make sure you get a crane or sling suited to your needs.

5. Operation

Will you have a team dedicated to operating your new lift equipment? At AD Certified Lifting Services, we provide on-site training to ensure your staff are comfortable and confident in operating any machinery we install, but it’s your job to ensure any staff using the new equipment are trained to do so.

If you’re planning on installing heavy-duty equipment, you may need specially trained staff to operate the machinery safely.
