SC&RA ANNOUNCES ADDITION OF MOBILE CRANES TO PRE-TIP PLANNING TOOL

Online Permit Manual Enhanced to Address Permitting Challenges Across States & Provinces

- CENTREVILLE, VA. – The Specialized Carriers & Rigging Association announces the addition of mobile cranes to its Online Permit Manual which includes all permitting information for the 50 states and Canadian provinces.

As one of the most comprehensive and affordable reference tools in the industry, the SC&RA Online Permit Manual spells out requirements for procedures and contacts; fees, restricted or weekend travel; allowable weights and dimensions; and escort/pilot car requirements. Now the subscription service includes information on mobile cranes.

“SC&RA added mobile cranes to the permit manual because crane and rigging member companies encounter the same challenges in obtaining hauling permits that our specialized transportation carriers face daily,” said SC&RA Senior Vice President Beth O’Quinn. “This includes not only the lack of uniform policies across states, but the added challenge of states permitting mobile cranes that are not, nor can be, evaluated in the same manner as a traditional tractor semi-trailer combination.

Now subscribers to the SC&RA Online Permit Manual can easily obtain the proper permit for a mobile crane ahead of time ensuring a safer and more efficient route,” noted O’Quinn. “Like specialized transportation carriers, mobile crane operators can use the Permit Manual to perform the essential pre-trip planning process that goes along with any successful move, including the dynamic changes in individual states and provinces members confront regularly.”

For more information on the new and improved SC&RA Online Permit Manual, visit scranet.org/permitmanual. The Association is offering a 10 percent discount to companies who are interested in subscribing for the first time. Enter code: MOBILE at checkout. Offer ends May 31, 2022.
