Considerations when renting a chain sling

When you are renting chain slings for lifting and lowering heavy loads, you need to consider a number of things. You will first want to think about the weight of the items that you are moving. Different slings have different ratings, and you will never want to try to lift a weight that’s too heavy with a sling that can’t hold up to the stress. It would be too dangerous. Before submitting your rental or lease request through the KWIPPED supplier network, consider the number of slings that you will need and the type of hooks they should have to lift the cargo and other loads.
