Maxim goes out of their way to provide that specific equipment. It’s always here on time and when it comes to the job, it’s in great working order. Now, as with any piece of mechanical equipment, it’s gonna break down and when it does, the service is immediate. Someone’s out there working on it right away and I’ve never been down without a hook to do the work we need to do.

Industrial Crane Rental FAQs

Industrial heavy lifting refers to the process of lifting and moving large, heavy objects or loads within industrial settings. It involves the use of specialized equipment, machinery, and techniques to handle and transport heavy materials, machinery, and components. Industrial heavy lifting is essential in industries such as construction, manufacturing, mining, oil and gas, and transportation, where there is a need to move bulky and weighty items efficiently and safely.


Examples of industrial customers include:

  • Power plants
  • Factories
  • Manufacturing centers
  • Warehouses
  • Distribution centers
  • Oil refineries
  • Power plants
  • Chemical processing plants

These companies often require special heavy lifting equipment to perform turnarounds, maintenance, and fix outages.

Turnarounds, also known as TAR, refer to the periodic shutdowns of industrial plants for comprehensive maintenance, inspections, and upgrades/renewals. Cranes are used during turnarounds for tasks such as lifting and positioning large process equipment, dismantling, removing and replacing piping systems, installing or removing vessels, and handling heavy machinery. They assist in the efficient and safe execution of these activities, ensuring smooth plant shutdown and restart.

Outages refer to unplanned shutdowns or unexpected interruptions in industrial operations, often due to equipment failures or emergencies. Cranes are instrumental in outages for emergency response, such as lifting and removing damaged or malfunctioning equipment, positioning temporary support structures, and assisting with emergency repairs. They aid in the quick and effective resolution of issues, minimizing downtime and minimizing potential production losses.

Maintenance activities, both planned and unplanned, are routine in industrial facilities. Cranes are frequently employed for maintenance tasks such as structural maintenance; equipment replacement such as motors, pumps, and valves; lifting and replacing heavy machinery parts; accessing elevated areas for repairs; and transporting maintenance tools and equipment. Cranes provide the necessary lifting capacity and maneuverability to complete maintenance tasks efficiently and safely.

Because industrial projects often are in rural areas, all-terrain and rough terrain cranes are typically needed. Industrial customers often rent other types of mobile cranes due to their versatility and ability to move around the job site including carry deck cranes and hydraulic truck cranes. Tower cranes are another frequently rented crane.

There are a few considerations when choosing the right crane to rent including:

  • Lifting capacity/ weight of the load
  • Reach of the crane
  • Working environment such as terrain

If you are still unsure of the perfect crane, our knowledgeable sales team can help.
