We offer Crane Finance on both fixed and mobile cranes for large Civil Contractors and smaller sub-contractors working in the Civil Construction Industry. Customers involved in large scale construction often have a complex set of interrelated companies, which means these types of deals can be complex in nature and need to be assessed by a specialist Heavy Equipment Lender.
Our staff have a high level of understanding with respect to company / trust structures along with a keen eye for detail when assessing profit and loss statements and balance sheets of complex company structures. We strive to make the Crane Finance process as simple as possible for our clients and seek to offer a finance structure most suited to a particular company structure.
What are the Different Types of Cranes that We Finance?
- Tower Cranes – Flat Top, Hammerhead, Self-Erecting for high rise construction
- All Terrain Cranes – Versatile cranes that can move quickly on or off road
- Rough Terrain Cranes – for use on rough terrain such as mine or civil construction job sites
