MYCRANE launches online marketplace for buying and selling new and used lifting equipment
4 Oct 2022
Free-to-use portal provides global reach for buyers and sellers of various types of cranes, rigging equipment, spare parts and auxiliaries
Online crane rental marketplace MYCRANE has launched a new free-to-use portal for buying and selling new and used lifting equipment where users from around the world can source their equipment from or dispose of their surplus machines.
The new portal available on the MYCRANE Marketplace, accessed at market.my-crane.com – features many types of cranes, rigging equipment, spare parts and auxiliaries. It also carries global job vacancies spanning a wide range of crane-related roles.
The range of equipment available includes mobile cranes, crawler cranes, tower cranes, boom trucks, aerial platforms, manlifts, mini cranes and hydraulic gantry systems.
According to MYCRANE, the Marketplace is supported by the new MYCRANE Inspections App, which provides “extensive, real-time reports and high-quality images of the cranes listed for sale – wherever it is in the world”.
The statement from MYCRNAE added that the app is “powered by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning”, and allows sellers to easily upload and modify condition reports, eliminating the need for expensive, specialist crane inspections.
MYCRANE also does not charge listings fees or commission for sales on the new marketplace.
“Sellers just need to complete a simple registration to create and publish their advertisements, while the Marketplace is available for browsing without registration,” said the company’s statement.
Andrei Geikalo, MYCRANE’s CEO and founder, said: “Launching MYCRANE one year ago, we pledged to ‘Unite the Lifting Community’. Thanks to our global network of franchisees and owned offices, MYCRANE has subject matter experts around the world that can connect customers with real buyers, and achieve the best price for their equipment. It is this on-the-ground presence that enables our Marketplace to combine digital technology with personal relationships.
“Skilled labour shortage is affecting the crane industry greatly. At our job portal, crane suppliers can find the best people, while at the same time we offer new opportunities for those seeking a career move.
“By increasing the scope of services offered by MYCRANE, we can add more value to our global customer base. Whether you need to rent a crane, buy one or even find your next job role – you can do it all at MYCRANE.”
The Marketplace provides a link to the platform’s crane rental tool. Crane rental providers can post any of their existing registered cranes for sale in the Marketplace, without needing to re-enter the crane data.
Once a customer has purchased a crane via the Marketplace, MYCRANE can provide crane transportation for the buyer, insurance and leasing (finance) to fund the purchase.
