The introduction of crane rental in the United States will complement the company’s SuperDeck retractable loading platform system which has been a widely used material handling solution on jobsites in the USA for 15 years.

There are five Preston Rentals US service centres, in California, Nevada, Texas, Tennessee and the newly opened SuperCrane service centre in Littleton, Colorado.

“The fleet was assembled as a cost-saving alternative for customers with unique site challenges,” added Krane. “Our machines are particularly useful when a site requires a minimal crane footprint, minimal ground bearing pressure or crane placement on elevated work surfaces such as parking structures and rooftops” he said.

In addition to the USA, Preston operates in Europe, New Zealand and Australia, where it is headquartered.
