Expertise and dedicated logistics support

For more than 40 years, Ainscough has been using the size and range of our fleet to deliver outstanding service for our customers, one that’s distinguished by our distinctive hallmarks of diligence, precision and efficiency. We don’t outsource any of our individual lifting services – instead, our diverse range of lifting services are carried out by our own in-house team, which comprises the most knowledgeable, experienced and trusted experts in the lifting industry.

This in-house team encompasses crane operators, lift operatives and engineers, contract lift managers, and health and safety officers. All of this enables us to target all areas of a project, providing planning, engineering and in-depth expertise of the very highest quality.

Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Belford

Our contract lift solutions cover a broad range of services in which our experts can undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift. This spans right from the initial design phase – in which we use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift – all the way through to final execution. If you choose, we also have the equipment and expertise in-house to handle the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.

As we touched on above, none of this is outsourced to third parties – instead, it’s all undertaken by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers here at Ainscough Crane Hire. If your planned operations involve a heavy or complex lift in Belford, we can provide several of our services in the form of one bespoke, turnkey package that’s tailored to your specific schedule and requirements.
