Crane Services

If your home has narrow, winding staircases or a small elevator, you may find that some things will be near impossible to move down them. This will require you to seek an alternative way to get your furniture to the moving vehicle. This is where using a crane is useful. By using a crane, the moving company will not have to risk their safety or the safety of your belongings transporting your furniture through a place that it might not fit.

This is especially useful if your home is several stories above ground level. Even if something can fit down the stair, no one wants to carry every single item down 10 flights of stairs. If this is a service you may need, make sure that it is one offered by your moving company. Small moving companies may not have access to a crane.
