MYCRANE, a global business-to-business (B2B) platform, was introduced to disrupt and simplify the crane rental procurement process. Developed by entrepreneur and industry professional Andrei Geikalo, a former commercial director at Mammoet Russia, the website allows users to submit details of their lifting requirements in order to receive personalized offers from a range of registered crane suppliers.
In addition to the search for lifting services, the platform also offers a range of other tools for the crane industry, including a marketplace and supporting services such as engineering and legal advice.
“MYCRANE was born out of a desire to change the existing outdated and inconvenient methods of sourcing crane services and make life easier for those in need of lifting services,” says Geikalo
“Currently, crane rental is a manual, old-fashioned process that takes far too much time. When introducing the service, we combined the latest digital technology with our many years of industry experience. I have personally been involved in countless heavy lift and lifting projects, so I know only too well how useful our service will be, ”he added.
“With MYCRANE there are no more calls or unclear quotes to decipher – easy-to-understand quotes straight to your inbox. And if you need to change your offer, simply change your online request on the MYCRANE website and our device providers will get back to you. “

The MYCRANE service, headquartered in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, operates on a franchise model and welcomes inquiries from industry experts who may be interested in operating the MYCRANE service in their home country.
The future expansion possibilities of MYCRANE
In addition to a search for lifting services, the introduction of an online marketplace is planned to advertise used equipment, rigging equipment, spare parts and aids, as well as job offers.
MYCRANE takes over two years to develop, eliminating the need for users to turn to multiple device vendors. Instead, users are asked to fill out a carefully designed online request form in order to receive directly comparable offers.
The platform is suitable for cranes with a lifting capacity of between 6 and 750 tons. Crawler, mobile and tower cranes can be requested on site. In addition, the team is working hard to add new types of cranes such as self-erecting tower cranes, gantry cranes, mini cranes and others.
MYCRANE is already active in Russia and will shortly be launched in major international markets including the USA, Canada, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Germany, the Netherlands, South Korea, Thailand, Vietnam and Singapore.
Geikalo says more features will be offered in the future, including engineering and construction services, as well as legal support.
