Konecranes launches crane RENTALL concept
Konecranes now offers premium low- to mid-range capacity cranes for rent, giving a new alternative to buying a crane. Without any large capital investment, the customer gets an efficient crane combined with a service package, where Konecranes takes care of maintenance and spare parts and the customer can focus on their core business.
“With RENTALL we can approach the customer with a new way to source the crane. We have piloted the RENTALL concept in a few countries and based on positive feedback from satisfied customers, we are now launching the concept to new markets,” says Raine Jussila, Product Manager, Konecranes RENTALL. Konecranes RENTALL is a bundled service that helps businesses control equipment and maintenance costs. With a fixed monthly fee, customers get a small- or mid-size crane with a full service package that includes preventive and routine maintenance, repairs, parts replacement, 24/7 on-call service, and TRUCONNECT Remote Monitoring.
A crane is a very important investment when setting up new production or upgrading existing facilities. Unfortunately, budgetary constraints often limit the range of equipment available. Instead of being an investment, Konecranes RENTALL becomes a regular monthly operating expense. Potential breakdowns and spare parts are taken care of, with the result that equipment costs are far easier to manage. It is easier to focus on the core business, and let Konecranes take care of the cranes.
Customers can choose to rent a crane of up to 20 tons of capacity from the Konecranes industrial crane range. Only site-related items, transportation, installation, commissioning and initial inspection are paid up-front. Then there is a fixed monthly fee for the contract period. If needed, the crane can easily be upgraded.
The minimum Konecranes RENTALL contract period is three years. After this, customers can choose to continue with the rental agreement, buy the crane at a pre-agreed price, or return it to Konecranes. Konecranes RENTALL is available in Finland, UK, Singapore, Australia, Sweden and Norway. The plan is to introduce RENTALL to other countries in the near future.
