Clearing Your Land

About Me

Clearing Your Land

My husband owned the five acre piece of land our home sits on before we married. When he purchased this lovely tract of property in the country, he knew he eventually wanted to build a small starter home on it. However, the property was covered with pine trees, overgrown grass, and weeds. Before he could ever start the building process, he had to hire someone to clear his land. To effectively complete this task, my husband hired experts who knew how to operate heavy construction equipment. In a few days, his property was cleared, and he was ready to build a home on it. On this blog, you will discover the types of heavy construction equipment needed to clear various kinds of property.


Preparing Your Worksite For Crane Rental And Set-Up

More homeowners are taking on home improvement projects that deal with property upgrades. These projects consist of earth moving, leveling property, and removing large trees or other items from the area. This means a crane is necessary. If you are facing this type of project, you may already have the crane you need in mind along with the crane rental company you will use. However, you may not have set up the property or worksite for the crane delivery. Here are some steps to preparing for the delivery.

Land Inspection

The first step is to perform a land inspection. This inspection will help you locate areas that need to be cleared for the crane. It will also let you determine if the terrain for the path of the crane is suitable. For example, you may have an initial entryway that is ideal for crane delivery. However, you may also find that further down the entry and towards the actual worksite you have other obstacles that can stop the crane from reaching the actual work area. An inspection can be done before the crane arrives to ensure the path is clear and the delivery route is ready for delivery.

Route Clearing

Once you have inspected the land, make sure the route is clear of all major debris and obstacles. Many of these obstacles will likely be fairly easy to move on your own or with a truck towing device. You do not need to clear it totally. The idea with this clearing stage is to make the room for your crane to enter the area and reach the worksite. That means this step is to simply remove the major obstacles out of the way and give a safe path for the crane. 

Map the Job

You likely know what the end result of the property project will be. What you may not have is a mapped-out plan of the upgrade or project. Before you are having the crane delivered, make sure to map out the job at hand. This means having a step-by-step process for crane use. This will help you determine the type of crane you need. It will also help you determine if your property can withstand the weight of the crane you decide to use. 

These are just a few of the ways to prepare your worksite for crane rental and delivery. If you are uncertain which crane you need, discuss the options with your chosen equipment rental company. They can show you the models available and discuss which one may be ideal for your property project. They can also answer questions about the rental agreement.
