A busy Summer!
Updated: Oct 20
Despite coronavirus, lockdown and the UK’s tricky economic situation Carter Crane Hire has had a very busy summer in 2020 with some record weeks…
Anyone in business would have been cautious about how trading would be affected this summer but we have been pleasantly surprised at how quickly the construction industry has picked up.
Three out of the last four weeks have given Carter Crane Hire record figures. This comes as a real bonus after having to close down for several weeks in the spring but we are well on the way to making up any lack of earnings during lockdown and looking forward to continued success.
Part of this success can be put down to a competitive pricing policy and part to flexibility in the size of the cranes we run – we can cover almost any job. We can lift from 1 tonne to 60 tonnes with our standing fleet and we have access to cranes capable of lifting up to 150 tonnes.
We can also supply a full lift team with Appointed Person, Lift Supervisor, Crane Operator, Slinger/Signaller, Rigger and Vehicle Marshall, all on a CPA Contract Lift basis if required. Where a customer has their own lift team, we are happy to work on a standard CPA Crane Hire, supplying just the crane and its operator.
It has not been quite so easy for our EB Construction Training division. With most teaching facilities closed and people reluctant to venture into the classroom it has been a slow return to normality. However, things are really picking up now and we are seeing many more bookings both from those needing to renew their tickets and from people wanting to gain new qualifications in construction-related plant operation and supervision. A full list of the courses available is HERE.
