A new global platform that digitizes the process of crane rental procurement has plans to expand into Canada.

MYCRANE allows users to submit details of their lifting requirements in order to receive personalized quotes from a range of registered crane providers.

The company, MYCRANE DMCC, is headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Entrepreneur and industry professional Andrei Geikalo, a former commercial director at Mammoet Russia, developed the site over a period of two years.

“MYCRANE was born out of the desire to change the existing outdated and inconvenient methods of procuring crane services, and to make life easier for those who require lifting services,” says Geikalo in a statement. “At present, crane rental is a manual, old-fashioned process that takes far too much time.”

MYCRANE removes the need for users to contact multiple equipment providers. Instead, they complete an online request form designed to ensure they receive directly comparable quotations.

The platform is suitable for cranes between six and 750 tonnes capacity. Crawler, mobile and tower cranes can all be requested on the site. In addition, the team is intensively working on adding new crane types, such as fast-assemble tower cranes, gantry cranes, mini cranes and others.

Marketplace and support

As well as a lifting services search, there are plans to introduce an online marketplace to advertise used equipment, rigging equipment, spare parts and auxiliaries and career vacancies.

A news portal will allow users to stay up to date with the latest industry developments, and support services such as engineering and legal consultancy will be on offer.

Franchisees wanted

The platform operates on a franchise model.

It’s already operational in Russia and will soon be launched in key international markets including Canada, the United States, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Germany, the Netherlands, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore.

Industry professionals who may be interested in operating the MYCRANE service in their home country are encouraged to contact the company.
