When choosing the suitable material handling rental or purchase for your project, there are several factors to consider. First, is the material you'll be handling solid, liquid or gaseous? Next, knowing the material's shape, dimensions and weight is key to selecting the right equipment. Other factors include whether the substance is toxic, corrosive or sensitive in any way. Additionally, certain materials will require special handling due to their fragility. These factors are essential to consider when selecting the right machinery.
