3 Reasons Why a Full-Service Crane Company Is Better Than an Inspection Only Company

May 14, 2020 | 2 min read

Everyone knows when you have an overhead crane, it must be inspected and certified on an annual basis and it requires maintenance. When choosing a vendor to provide this service, there are several considerations to take into account.

1. Inspection Only Providers vs One-Stop Shops

When using an inspection only company, a customer receives their inspection, but will likely have to outsource any necessary repairs. When this happens, details can slip through the cracks, or the timeline for repairs can take longer than they would if working with a full-service company.

With a full-service company, the resources are already in place for consistency, from inspections to repairs to maintenance. A customer doesn’t have to work with different representatives or technicians supplying various services without historical records—it’s one company and the same people working within a proven process that guarantees quality and reliability.

2. Expanding Your Team

With an inspection only company, your inspector is not part of your team. The service they perform is required, but you typically don’t get any value add.
