An overhead crane is a complex and expensive piece of equipment. Prior to financing an overhead crane, your bank may want you to meet with a couple of different overhead crane manufacturers to receive multiple quotes on the installation of an overhead crane system. The goal of this section is to help you understand what you can expect from an overhead crane consultation and walk you through the process from first contact with a crane manufacturer up into the installation of the overhead crane system.
Whether this is your first time going through an overhead crane installation, or you’ve gone through multiple crane installations, we hope you can learn something to help keep your next install on schedule, within budget, and keep your workers safe.
When it comes down to it, installing an overhead crane system into an existing building structure is a completely different process than installing a crane into a new construction facility.
