In itself, rigging is a commercially viable way to lift, move and install almost any object, particularly large and heavy ones. With increasing global recognition of their importance, rigging has garnered plenty of international attention.
Interestingly enough, it has also attracted a few rather absurd myths, many that are keeping businesses from unlocking their full potential. To ensure that this does not happen to you, we are going to tell you about the top 3 rigging myths and show you why disbelief in them leads to success.
1 – You only need them for Large Projects
Since rigging primarily deals with the relocation of relatively large and/or heavy equipment, machinery and other such objects, it’s not unusual for business owners to believe this myth. However, they do need to realize that it is nothing but a myth.
In truth, rigging can help you with both large and small projects, helping your company grow in more ways than you may know.
Professional rigging companies not only tackle projects as large as plant shutdown maintenance, they cater to small projects as well such as general contracting and trucking. This enables businesses of all sizes and types to reap the benefits of rigging.
2 – Most Rigging Companies are the same, so go with the Lowest Bidder
At its core, rigging is a complex service where companies can provide, more or less, the same services. These similarities lead many business owners to believe that rigging service providers are relatively the same. As a result, they choose the lowest bidder. Despite their similarities, there are monumental differences among them; differences that you should know in order for your business to grow.
Rigging companies differ in their machinery, number of services, reputation, manpower, range of support and consultation services, load moving capacities, speed of service, and moving integrity (moving equipment with minimal or no damage).
3 – Rigging Companies only Lift and Move Objects
One of the most interesting rumors that surround rigging is that rigging companies only offer lifting and moving services at their core. Considering the type of company, this myth can seem rather believable. In truth however, most professional rigging companies not only provide rigging services, but millwright services as well.
From the initial plan and proposal to the final installation and even maintenance, professional rigging companies can do it all, and more.
This expansion in fields enables them to provide their same level of quality and professional services from start to finish, ensuring a smooth, expedited, hassle-free and cost-effective project.
With these top 3 rigging myths debunked, now you can better understand why a quality rigging company can help your business grow. No two companies and their service, quality and reputation are ever the same. Always consult with a good company and choose the one that’s right for you.
