Plant hire companies look to Valla mini cranes to extend service offer

Plant hire companies are turning to Valla mini cranes as they look to expand their product and service ranges.

Enquiries from hire companies about purchase or long-term rental deals for Valla mini cranes have risen in recent months.

Hird Managing Direct Phil Hird said it is a positive sign that hire companies are looking to develop both the products and services they offer.

He added: “There was a lot of interest from hire companies who are clearly looking at materials lifting services as an option to expand, especially as the economy continues to pick up.

“Hire companies are not just interested in deals for long-term rent of Valla mini cranes, they are also interesting in buying machines to enhance their own fleets.

“Some are also talking about setting up their own lifting services, and need the right equipment to deliver a high-quality, sustainable service.

“For all these options, Valla mini cranes represent an obvious choice. They are recognised as industry leaders for pick and carry mini cranes.

“Their record on quality and reliability is second to none, which is a very strong plus for hire companies, where excellent productivity and minimal down-time are both highly-desirable.”

Valla mini cranes Sales and After Sales Manager Carl Cooper: “End-users in industries like construction, facilities management and manufacturing, are increasingly aware of the benefits of using mini cranes.

“They are ideal for tasks such as glass installation, steel erection, machinery moving and bespoke tasks such as artwork installation.

“Hire companies are telling us their clients are stipulating that they want to use mini cranes on lifting projects because they are right for the job, so maximise productivity and health and safety.”
