No two construction jobs are exactly the same. Even if you are building neighboring houses that are exactly the same, what lies beneath the surface is not identical. The same mindset needs to be established when you are choosing your construction, crane, or rig mats. When you are preparing for your next project, there are certain questions you should ask your mat supplier, as well as having certain answers for questions your supplier will ask you.
Before contacting your potential mat supplier:
- Research the heavy machinery, construction equipment, and transportation methods involved in your project.
- Check the status of the environment you will be working around. Will you be working in a swampland or a prairie?
- Establish your budget. Decide if you want to purchase or rent your mats, as well as if you want your mats to be new or used.
