I think that all industries have a similar problem. I would suggest that there will always be a stack em high sell em cheap element, but there are still clients that demand an elavated level of service and will pay for that. It is very much a question of where owners Direct there efforts. Our short industry history is littered with failures of one type, but not the other. Strange that. Have a great 2019 chaps!!!!

Oh that's a easy answer, the rates in the U.K. are way too low, if you compare our crane hire and operator rates to the rest of Europe we are a laughing stock, there are a few companies out there that you pretty much hire a operator and get a free crane.
