YMMV

(Solder skills..? yes we have those, and an alternate method that works just as well)
Solder is susceptible to the joint coming apart usually from virbration or some other mechanical failure. Breaking usually isn't a problem if soldered correctly.

Crimping can also fail. Both are fairly reliable assuming professional crimping tools. Crimping is more cost effective in high volume production.
