So you’re wondering how to finance a crane -- or perhaps how to lease one.
Well, let’s start by saying crane financing and leasing can help many construction companies. Both of them can help you improve the quality of your operations without too much financial risk.
Crane financing or leasing can help you either boost or support operations while balancing your budget. That’s if you get a good deal on your crane financing or leasing, of course.
Many equipment finance and leasing companies offer flexible payment options now, luckily. You can get reasonable rates if you meet their minimum requirements.
It’s still worthwhile to calculate the possible costs involved, though. That’s why today, we’ll talk about how to finance a crane and the cost of financing and leasing a crane.

The Coronavirus pandemic is raging through the world, exposing vulnerabilities of a number of industries. And, healthcare is one of them. As the number of people suffering from the lesser understood viral infection increases, healthcare supplies (including equipment) see a shortfall. And, this is particularly true of ventilators.
It is noteworthy here that that worldwide the population is ageing rapidly, especially in the North American and European region. Thus, these are also the places witnessing a high demand for ventilators and a low supply. In this hour of crisis, the auto industry steps-up. So, to save the day, it dabbles in manufacturing of ventilators. But, the question arises, are the ready?
Role of Auto Industry – Historical and Current in the Time of Crisis
Historically, this is an industry which remained at the forefront of crisis times such as that in World War II, when it produced tanks and fighter planes. But, healthcare is a delicate industry. And, some scientists believe that car manufacturers are not the perfect fit for creating medical equipment.
The reason they give for this is the fact that most manufacturers depend on specialized suppliers. Thus, they state that the ventilators sure do look alike automobile pups and air conditioners. However, they are mostly an outcome of assembling the parts. As, it is noteworthy, that most auto manufacturers don’t build them. This, however, is not to say that production capacities of a number of plants is not underutilized.
Furthermore, it is worth noting that car manufacturers feel that they are ready. Here, note that certain companies are already dabbling in creating prototypes, setting up research facilities, and producing ventilators. Companies that are involved in the manufacturing process of ventilators are Mercedes, Renault, Ford, General Motors, etc.
Only time will tell if the auto industry is equipped to hold the pulse of the demand-supply gap successfully.

The COVID-19 outbreak has confined millions of people to their homes and has stopped almost every sport, cultural, and political gathering across the globe. No place apart from hospitals is expected to have a gathering of more than 4 people as per some governments. In midst of this outbreak, the virtual gaming sector can witness a substantial rise. According to a report, the virtual gaming industry is witnessing a massive growth since massive number of captive audience is looking for some sort of entertainment while sitting at home. To support the no-social-gathering campaign and to keep the audience safe, Italy’s Mugello motorcycling circuit rolled the “MotoGP” event as “The stay at home GP” on Sunday.
Why Home Quarantine or Self Quarantine is Crucial?
As per WHO’s analysis, COVID-19 or Corona virus spread due to direct or indirect physical contact. The direct physical contact includes handshakes, hugging, and/or touching the affected person. Whereas, indirect physical contact includes, touching the area, assets, or panels, that was being touched by an affected person. To stop this WHO advises that until an effective cure and vaccine is not developed, it shall be better that people maintain social distancing. For this reason home quarantine or self quarantine is highly important.
However, we as human are not used to sit at one place for a long duration. To ensure people like us follow the advices by healthcare authorities, sports events are now presented to us via virtual platforms. This is the reason that the virtual gaming sector is experiencing a major boost during the time of this crisis.
Several legends in sports entertainment industry state that virtual gaming is the best way to keep oneself busy and motivated to stay at home. Users can chat, talk, and have a good time while playing the game of their choice on a virtual platform.

Texas governor Greg Abbott has banned all abortion procedures, but will allow church services to be held during the coronavirus outbreak.
According to Forbes, Abbott banned all abortions last week. However, a Federal District Court blocked the ban Monday, after Planned Parenthood and other organizations filed a lawsuit. An appeals court reversed the district court decision Tuesday, allowing the ban to remain in place until the case made its way through the courts.
Hours later, Abbott issued an order limiting social gatherings and in-person contact with the exception of services deemed essential by the federal government and “religious services conducted in churches, congregations, and houses of worship.”
The original executive order outlining healthcare services issued by Abbott on March 22 did not mention abortion at all. The order was designed to preserve the supply of personal protective equipment (PPE) and hospital capacity during the coronavirus outbreak.
The next day, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton issued a statement saying he believed the order included “any type of abortion that is not medically necessary to preserve the life or health of the mother.”
Abortion services in the state ceased all surgical abortions but continued providing medical ones, until providers learned Friday those must be suspended as well. Paxton is well known for challenging abortion rights in the state.
“Abortion is an essential component of comprehensive health care,” the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists said in a March 18 statement cosigned by seven other medical organizations. Delaying abortion weeks or even days can “increase the risks or potentially make it completely inaccessible,” and the “consequences of being unable to obtain an abortion profoundly impact a person’s life, health, and well-being.”
Pregnancy carries greater health risks to the mother than terminating a pregnancy, particularly in Texas, which ranks sixth in the nation in maternal deaths. Additionally, Dr. Daniel Grossman, professor at the University of California San Francisco, said “a lot more gloves, gowns, and masks” are used for pelvic exams, ultrasounds, and delivery if a woman continues her pregnancy.
For African American women, the inability to get an abortion can have devastating effects. Especially during the coronavirus outbreak where medical care outside of the virus is at a standstill and unemployment is skyrocketing.

The rapid spread of COVID-19, or the novel coronavirus, across the U.S has left many Americans disfranchised with over 3.3 million people filing unemployment claims within the first week. The need for aid to Americans affected by coronavirus is only likely to rise as another record 6.6 million people filed for unemployment benefits last week according to the U.S Department of Labor. Many celebrities have decided to step up their efforts by contributing massive donations through charity partnerships to reach those in need.
Oprah Winfrey announced she would be pledging $1 million to America’s Food Fund, a charity co-founded by actor Leonardo DiCaprio and philanthropist Laurene Powell Jobs. The fund was launched today and has already raised $12 million from other high profile donors.
“With millions losing their jobs and programs like school lunches in jeopardy, making sure people aren’t going hungry is of the utmost urgency,” Powell Jobs told the AP.
In addition to her pledge, Winfrey also mentioned that she is giving directly to the cause through her own foundation and committing $10 million to aid people in various ways nationwide who are dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.View this post on Instagram
@chefjoseandres and Claire Babineaux-Fontenot have teamed up with @leonardodicaprio, Laurene Powell Jobs and @Apple to launch America’s Food Fund to help feed local communities. I was struck by the work these organizations are doing and while everyone’s priority right now is to stay safer at home, I know there are many of us looking for ways to help. I believe that America’s Food Fund will be a powerful way to make a difference for our neighbors in need and am committing $1 million to this fund to support those facing food insecurity. I am donating $10 million overall to help Americans during this pandemic in cities across the country and in areas where I grew up.

Rishi Sunak says lenders must ‘do their part’ to aid small businesses during Covid-19 crisis
The chancellor, Rishi Sunak, has banned banks from requesting personal guarantees for emergency loans to small businesses amid growing government concern that lenders have been slow in meeting demands for help.
With the rapid increase in the number of universal credit claims suggesting many small companies have already collapsed since the economy was locked down, Sunak combined a new package of support for business with a warning to banks that they had to move more quickly.
