Crane operators are easy to find, look in the Yellow Pages under “Crane Hire”. You need them to lift the pool into the hole (pools weigh about 500kg). Normally it’s one of the cheapest parts of the installation, they charge by the hour and most charge a minimum of 2 hrs (about $250 for the typical crane). If you’re not sure ask them to come around to give you a quote. Mostly small mobile cranes called “Fanna” are used, or if the pool’s to be lifted over the house a “slew” might be required. Most are small business operators and are happy to hear from you as doing little lifts like this is the bread and butter of their business.
