Safety has always been the top priority for us at Allegheny Crane. We emphasize it as much as possible and at every level of our operation. Of course, out on the job site it is incredibly important. But we believe ensuring total safety for ourselves and our clients goes far beyond just the work on site. Unloading units in our lot, working in the shop, and even just driving to job sites is fraught with potential dangers. Remaining safe in this industry requires complete and constant focus.
One of the things that Allegheny Crane is most proud of is our zero TRIR (total reportable incident ratio) which we’ve maintained for 8 years running. We are the single crane rental company on the market that can say that honestly. That doesn’t happen by accident. It is the result of preparation, attention to detail, caution, and the training to execute lifts to perfection.
Allegheny Crane can get street closure permits on the busiest streets in Pittsburgh. A lot of our competitors can’t even be cleared for a permit. And even if they can, it will cost them far more than it will with us. This helps keep our bids consistently lower, especially on those larger scale jobs.
There is tremendous risk in this business when you hire a contractor. If an accident occurs with a crane that you rented, you are responsible. If the crane company isn’t 100% up to OSHA standards, you are liable. That’s a dangerous situation to be in. We are constantly working to make renting a crane simpler and easier for you. That’s why we put in the time to make sure we are completely up to date and properly certified on every single OSHA code.
3. Customer Relationships
The resources of a national company, and the personal service of a small business. That is what separates us from our competition. There are small crane companies out there that go above and beyond for their customers. Unfortunately, there are just certain limits on what they can do. They either have a cap on the largest crane they run, or they simply don’t have the cranes ready when you need them.
Allegheny Crane is the solution to this hole in the market. We have a lean, skillful, and passionate team dedicated to making the job as easy for you as possible. We also have all the same resources of a national corporation. We’re bringing the personal part of cranes back!
Time is precious in the crane world. Wasting it is the number one reason contractors get overcharged by crane rental companies every single day. Allegheny Crane is always searching for ways to save our customers money. The most effective way we do this is by shortening our hours in the crane.
This starts with preparation. We explore every possible lift option to find the one that allows the fewest set-ups and minimal interference. The next key to us saving our customers time is providing our own rigging for each and every job. This ensures we are ready to go the second we arrive at the job site.
The last, and probably most important part, is that we review each and every lift with our operators beforehand. They know exactly how the lift needs to look before they step foot on site. This way they can get on site, and get going immediately.
5. Loving A Challenge
When Kyrk Pyros took over the company 15 years ago, he completely changed the company culture. Kyrk has a can-do attitude. He hates saying we can’t do something and he has passed that winning attitude onto his employees.
A lot of crane companies are going to get annoyed at you when you call in with a tricky lift. They are going to say it’s a pain to have to go out and visit the job site before the lift. Allegheny Crane loves tough lifts. It’s yet another important value that separates us from our competition. Kyrk has 30 years of experience in construction, demolition, excavation, and crane rental. He has the extensive knowledge and experience you need to be able to think on your feet.
We will work tirelessly to design the perfect lift plan for even your toughest jobs. And you can be absolutely sure we will do it faster and safer than our competition.
