In the day-to-day operations of your business, sometimes the lifting equipment you’re using needs a maintenance check-up. Or maybe the lifting equipment needs to be examined more closely for a variety of reasons. For instance, when you’re buying pre-owned lifting equipment, you may be unsure of its capacity levels, and if equipment labels are missing, and you might be unsure about what the lifting equipment was originally designed to lift. Or maybe you’re looking to purchase new lifting tongs, but can’t decide if it’s suited to your needs? You need answers before you can proceed with buying the lifting equipment.
Or maybe your company has been using a piece of lifting equipment for all types of lifting jobs – heavy items, soft items, marginal items, etc. – for years (or decades), and nobody can recall what uses the lifting equipment was originally intended for. Then, all of a sudden (and, inconveniently, in the middle of a big job), the equipment starts dropping items, left and right, and then it shuts down completely. No one can figure out why. But, at Hunter Lift we can.
