Boom trucks, hydraulic gantry systems, mini cranes and aerial platforms have all been added to the online platform
Dubai-based Mycrane has added four new types of lifting devices to its online crane rental platform. The introduction of boom trucks, hydraulic gantry systems, mini cranes and aerial platforms to the site are said to mark the company’s entry into the short-term rental market, and will see it provide business-to-consumer (B2C) service for the first time.
According to Mycrane Founder and CEO Andrei Geikalo, a former Commercial Director at global engineering and heavy lift specialist Mammoet, the latest additions to the free-to-use platform are aligned with the company’s strategic plans.
“From the start of our operations in mid-2021, feedback from customers has consistently been that we should add all types of cranes to the Mycrane platform. The latest additions to our site bring this goal a step closer, and allow us to offer more value to our customers with a one-stop solution,” he explained.
In September 2021, Mycrane announced its expansion with new franchisee appointments.
He added, “When business or consumer clients use Mycrane to compare the offers of crane rental companies easily and quickly, they will now find a much larger selection of machines available for hire. We plan to add all remaining lifting-related equipment to the Mycrane platform by the end of 2022.”
Mycrane says it has pioneered a free-to-use, digital crane rental service, allowing users to post their lifting requirements free of charge online. Crane rental companies then respond directly with their commercial offers, eliminating the need for customers to make multiple offline requests and allowing them to save time.
Earlier in 2022, the service is already operational in a number of key global markets, including the United Kingdom, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, India, Singapore, Thailand, Indonesia, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan. The platform was also shortlisted at the 2022 Construction Machinery Middle East Awards in the ‘Innovation of the Year’ category.
