Having a crane or fork lift on site longer than necessary is both bad planning and can be very expensive. Renting an oversize crane can also end up being very expensive.
  • Try to give as much lead time as possible when ordering components from the office or shop.

  • You must also know and list all extras not covered in the contract with the customer. A more detailed description of these extras is needed for the office so they can invoice this separately to the customer.
