Quality overhead cranes were built to last. But that doesn’t mean that they don’t need updates, upgrades, and modernization after years of use. However, not all modernization services are the same. You need a crane service company with decades of experience and knows the ins and outs of crane modernization—and can return your crane promptly so you can keep business moving.

T&M Cranes has served Indiana and Illinois for nearly 50 years. In this time, we’ve become acutely familiar with every element essential to crane modernization, staying abreast of the latest updates and needs from companies of all sizes. Here’s what you can expect from us.

Why you should modernize your overhead crane

This may be a refresher for some of our readers, but you might be surprised at how many companies delay or forego crane modernization. Some believe their cranes simply do not need updates. Others would rather avoid paying a crane service company for modernization. Let’s start with the first idea.

Modernization means reliability

While we understand accepting that it’s time to modernize your crane isn’t always easy, it’s important to do so. Modernization ensures that all aging, essential components are replaced with modern components that will last for years to come. Not only does this ensure your overhead crane is ready to tackle new, demanding jobs, but also ensures that it will function safely during each use.

Modernization saves you money

Modernization indeed means spending money to update your crane. However, it’s more cost-effective than buying a new crane outright. Our crane modernization services ensure your crane is ready to tackle any project you can throw at it at a fraction of the cost of a new system.

Crane modernization also means it operates most efficiently and enables you to increase productivity when needed. You can’t take on new projects and work with new clients who need demanding projects completed with equipment that simply isn’t up to the task.

Modernization equips you with the systems you need to safely and effectively take on new projects to keep your business moving.
