February 6 - Liebherr is offering its customers in the UK, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France the chance to hire construction machines using its new rental services app.

The smartphone and tablet app, which can be used in English, German and French, provides a quick overview of the crane manufacturer's dealer network and the equipment available in the Liebherr hire park.

The available machines are shown in a product overview, while technical data, a short description and images can also be viewed. Once a user has selected a machine, he/she is directed to a dealer overview. The mobile app then uses the user's location to offer contact details of the nearest dealer. If deployment in a different area is planned, the dealer overview can be adjusted according to specific requirements.
