Finding the Right Rigger for Your Job: A Modern Guide

Choosing the right rigger is crucial for a safe and efficient lifting project. Here's what to consider when making your decision:

Price Comparison:

  1. Get Quotes: Obtain quotes from multiple riggers, both local and national. Location can influence pricing, but experienced riggers often travel for large projects.
  2. Understand the Breakdown: Ask about potential cost factors like equipment rentals (cranes, trucks) and whether they're included in the base price.
  3. Company Size vs. Cost: Larger companies with established reputations may offer less flexible rates but bring extensive experience and equipment ownership.
  4. Project Size and Cost: For smaller jobs, consider one-person or startup companies that might have lower overhead and flexible pricing.

Safety First:

  1. Experience Matters: Verify the rigger's experience through references and job history. Ensure they have the expertise to handle your specific cargo safely.
  2. The Right Tools for the Job: Confirm the rigger uses equipment with the proper capacity for your load. Insufficient tools can damage your cargo and endanger personnel.
  3. Adequate Insurance Coverage: Request information about the rigger's insurance policy, including coverage limits and geographic scope. Ensure it covers potential accidents throughout the entire move, especially if the rigger or your cargo is crossing state lines. Be wary of international rigging crews with limited or no insurance.
