When you choose Ainscough Crane Hire for contract lift solutions, we can offer you a range of services in which our in-house team can undertake any or all aspects of the lift, from the initial design phase all the way through to final execution.

From there, we can also move on to the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management – taking on any or all of them as required.
All this is undertaken by our own experienced specialists, which gives you the confidence you need to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. Should the situation require it, we can even combine several of our services into one bespoke turnkey package, tailored to your own specific schedule and requirements.
