Do you know what type of vehicle (type of crane or truck) is used for delivery and unloading of wall frames, sub floor joists and roof trusses when building a house?

Ok thanks. So is it fair to say a franna is used to lift items higher (eg roofing)? Does it matter if there are powerlines near the property? Or can we say that typically a crane truck is used to deliver items and a franna is used for roof stages?

Yup deliveries crane truck, and yes anything that needs to go further out and up needs a franna. The power lines the operators will navigate those unless there a cowboy.
