For more than 40 years, here at Ainscough Crane Hire our team has been at the centre of a range of key sectors, providing a diverse array of lifting services to blue chip clients with our hallmarks of efficiency, precision and diligence. We don’t outsource any of these services, preferring to use our very own in-house team. Our staff comprises some of the most trusted and knowledgable professionals in the lifting industry, encompassing teams of crane operators, lift operatives and engineers, contract lift managers, and health and safety officers.
By drawing on this considerable pool of in-house expertise, we’re able to target all areas of a project, with planning and engineering services of the very highest quality – whether you require one-off mobile crane hire, industry leading project management, or comprehensive contract lift solutions in Berkshire.
Our contract lift solutions encompass a range of services in which we’re able to undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift, spanning from the initial design all the way through to the final execution. In the early phases of the project, we typically use market-leading CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This provides us with essential information and data which can then form the basis for the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All this detailed planning is handled by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, so that you can have the total peace of mind you need to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. If your project involves a particularly high risk or heavy lift in Berkshire, we can even provide the option to choose several of our services in a bespoke, turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact schedule and requirements.
