When requiring a lot from a piece of equipment it is important to consider the quality of construction and design of the equipment as well as if the equipment is rightfully suited to the job at hand. If a piece of equipment or a tool is mismatched to the job at hand then it can prove to be both dangerous to the worker and stressful on the equipment. This can result in early break down of the equipment and frustration for the worker. For these reasons alone, it is important to take the time to choose the best equipment, no matter the difficulty in the selection process.

Over what types of terrain or flooring will the equipment be required to travel? Is the item or equipment being moved constructed in an awkward way? Is it shaped oddly? Is the piece unusually heavy? Or is the item that needs to be moved fragile? Will it require some kind of special attention and care?
