FAQ

Truck crane rental

“Operated rental” means that not only do we provide the truck crane, but also a highly skilled operator who has the know-how to operate the vehicle properly and in full compliance with safety standards.
“Bare rental” means that we just provide the vehicle and then the client is responsible for operating it. In that case, the client has to guarantee that the vehicle will be operated by skilled operators who have been properly trained and informed about the use of the machinery.
Because our operators and drivers, after years of experience and training, are all highly skilled and qualified. Furthermore, for the “bare rental” to be possible, the truck crane operator is required to hold all the certificates of training in compliance with current legislation (as laid down by the Italian Legislative Decree  81/08 – link http://www.lavoro.gov.it/sicurezzalavoro/MS/Normativa/Pages/default.aspx).
A truck crane is far more flexible and can intervene on site much quicker than a tower crane. A tower crane, in fact, needs to be assembled and therefore can’t assure the same speed of intervention. In addition, a truck crane, being self-propelled, can be moved around the whole building site, whereas a tower crane, once assembled, can only work within its working radius.
If you rent a crane under 100 tons, it will take around 2 hours (as long as the building site is within 30 miles from one of our garages).
There is no time limit: 365 days a year, from Monday to Sunday.
It is the linear distance between the axis of rotation of the crane and the point where the load has to be lifted or placed.

Aerial work platforms rental

It is a vehicle, either self-propelled (intended for building sites) or truck-mounted (intended for use on the road), that enables qualified and skilled operators to work up to 328 ft high.
The speed of intervention. We have a wide range of truck-mounted aerial work platforms that can be easily driven to your building site. Therefore, in a couple of hours you will be able to start working with the aerial work platform you required.
A scaffolding is a semi permanent  structure that can only reach a preset and limited height. An aerial work platform, instead, can reach the height you need each time. In addition, the height can be reset: you just have to press a button and this can be done even while working at height. On the other hand, to move a scaffolding you have to come down and move it manually.
Considering both the assembly and dismantling phases, it takes 6 days. Furthermore, the scaffolding, as provided for by law, not only should be certified, but an assembly, use and dismantling plan (similar to the lifting plan for cranes) should also be drawn up.
