Choosing the Right Rigging Company

Choosing the Right Rigging Company

If you are in the construction, manufacturing, theme park, theater, or mining industry, chances are you will need hoisting and rigging equipment on a frequent basis. Maybe you need to replace some out-of-commission slings and damaged hooks, or you are looking for some custom hardware for a unique rigging job. Though there are several online and local providers of rigging equipment out there, you can only afford to go with the best. After all, your workers put their safety on the line every day when they use rigging equipment. Here are some things to consider before choosing which rigging company you will buy from.

High Performance Equipment

First and foremost, you need to be confident that a rigging supplier carries the best equipment in the industry from reliable brands. It’s too big a risk to save a few bucks by buying cheaper equipment, and it will cost you more in the long run if the cheap gear fails on the job.

Variety of Equipment

You also want to look at the different kinds of products the company provides. You don’t want to have to go to one place for fall protection equipment, another for slings, and another for wire rope. Find a company who is an expert in the industry, not just one product.

Quick Customer Service

When something goes wrong, you want a rigging company that can step in immediately to help you fix the issue. Whether a piece of equipment fails and you need to replace it, of if there’s an emergency, you need a company that can respond at the drop of a hat.

Product Education

There’s no room for error when you use a rigging product to secure a load. Either you use it correctly and everything is fine, or you don’t and the lift is compromised. Find a rigging company that will give you on-site product education so you fully understand how to use gear properly.

Rigging Inspections

Not sure about the condition of your slings or wire rope? There are some rigging companies who will come out to perform quality inspections of equipment to ensure everything is safe to use.

Custom Equipment Design

Sometimes, complex jobs like setting up theatrical rigging for a show call for custom-made rigging equipment. Look for a company who not only sells quality standard products, but who has the expertise to custom-design and manufacture others as well.

Training Seminars

Find a company which is a thought leader in the rigging industry. They will be able to advise you on the right products to use, but they will also be able to train your employees in proper rigging and fall protection principles.

If you can find a rigging company that checks all of these boxes, there’s no need to look anywhere else.
