Construction job sites have a lot of moving parts. At times, you will have many people doing many things at the same time—it can get chaotic. In this chaos, things can get out of hand. You don’t have time to wander through the chaos to monitor your entire staff to make sure they are not loitering about, being lazy. You also do not have time to check every single piece of each operation to make sure no errors are being made. The best way to keep the chaos at bay so that your construction site will become more efficient and more profitable is to purchase more equipment.
This may seem counterproductive as it will add even more moving parts to your construction site, but more equipment will actually help you keep everything organized. Jobs will happen faster which can save you money and allow you to move on to new jobs at a quicker pace.
One example of a piece of equipment that can make your job site more efficient is a telehandler. If you have work that needs to be done which requires materials to be delivered at a great height, a telehandler will get that done faster and more effectively than any other type of aerial lift. The telescoping beam of the telehandler is what makes it so effective at reaching high places.
Another piece of equipment that will help you reach high places is an articulating boom lift. If you only have a straight boom lift you will run into problems when there are obstacles on your job site. Articulating boom lifts make it possible to maneuver around trees, power lines, and any other obstacles that come across their path. Often, articulating boom lifts get the job done faster and easier than straight boom lifts. However straight boom lifts have the advantage of extending further and have a greater load capacity.
A scissor lift can help your staff lift people and materials to higher places in a simple, safe manner. Transferring many materials at once will make the process quick and as long as proper safety precautions are followed, the method is safe as well. Although scissor lifts only travel in a vertical manner, they do allow for greater loads in the basket like multiple workers or workers with materials.
The more construction equipment you have, the greater your productivity will be enhanced. Telehandlers, articulating boom lifts, and scissor lifts can help keep your job site running smoothly and effectively. This equipment will up the organization level of your job site which will help keep the chaos at bay. With new equipment comes the responsibility of training your staff on said equipment, but once they are trained they will know the proper safety protocols and methods of operation.
If you have construction equipment doing most of the hard work, you will be able to sit back and plan for the next construction job. Purchasing used construction equipment is a great way to save money while making your job site more efficient and profitable. You will even be able to purchase more equipment, as the price of a used telehandler could be half that of a new one.
