To move heavy, expensive material, you need to get the
strategy right first.
Every construction site presents unique challenges.
Materials are often awkward, heavy, and expensive --

A successful strategy involves both the right equipment and the right operators. At Drum
Crane, our union-qualified team has the experience
to recommend the best methods for moving and staging even the most cumbersome building materials. It all starts with good planning.
We’ll work hand-in-hand with site engineers and general contractors, as well as skilled tradesmen, to come up with the right equipment and lifting methods for each job. Will heavy loads have to be lifted into awkward or difficult spaces? How will the transportation of the materials affect public walkways and common areas? Could power, water, or gas lines be compromised? These are things that must be considered before equipment can start moving heavy materials on site. Planning like this not only helps save money and prevent loss or downtime, it can absolutely help safeguard the well-being of people on the site (both workers and civilians).
The right crane, coupled with a union-qualified operator, can move and place cumbersome and heavy materials quickly and efficiently. Stacking, lifting, storing, moving—there are a wide variety of cranes available, and we have the expertise to match the right equipment and the right operator to your job.
The next time you need to move materials on a construction job, consult with us first. Drum Crane uses only union-trained operators, so you can trust us to assess your project and come up with the right strategy to protect your materials, keep your crew safe, and increase your productivity.
A union-qualified crane operator is the key to minimizing both
financial and physical hazards.
If you are looking to rent crane equipment, chances are you
are already well aware of the size and scope of the job ahead
of you. Complex crane projects like building or modifying
cell towers and setting steel or tree removal involve unique
risks and high costs. Imagine a load of solar panels crashing
to the ground from sixty feet in the air! A mistake on a job
like that can wreak havoc on your budget—or worse.
One of the most important aspects of crane work is the
experience of the operator. A person working on a cell tower
in a manbasket can be ten stories above the ground or
more. What could be more important than a qualified
operator? And certainly, a large-scale solar panel installation or similarly intricate project involves extraordinary upfront costs—with high-priced materials that simply can’t be lost to careless accidents.
Elevated construction and maintenance put your bottom line—and even human life—at great risk. Union crane operators help you minimize that risk.
Union crane operators will protect your investment by avoiding costly and time-consuming mistakes on the job site, and on dangerous projects, that person will provide the expertise needed to help safeguard the well-being of everyone on the site.
When you rent crane equipment, make sure you are also getting union-trained operators. At Drum Crane, we hire onlyunion operators. The training and qualifications these professionals bring to each and every job make a difference in both the quality of the work and the safety of everyone on the site.
With projects of this size and scale, you can't afford to take unnecessary risks! We trust crane operators who come to us with union credentials, and you should, too.
