Our contract lifting solutions cover a range of services in which Ainscough experts can undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift, from the initial consultation right through to final execution. At the design phase, we typically use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope out the exact requirements of the lift. From there, we can then move on to the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round-the-clock management.
We don’t outsource any of this, preferring to handle it all with our very own in-house team, so that you can always ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. Depending on the nature and scale of your project, you can even choose to combine several of our services into a bespoke turnkey package, one that’s tailored to your exact requirements and deadlines.
Our large and diverse fleet encompasses mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes, which we can make available either as single units or as part of a wider, large-scale multi vehicle contract.
