For more than 40 years, we’ve been serving our blue chip clients with a wide range of unparalleled lifting services, each one distinguished by our hallmarks of diligence, precision and efficiency. In order to maintain our exceptionally high standards, we do not outsource these to third parties. Instead, they’re all handled by our own in-house team, which comprises crane operators, engineers, contract lift managers, lift operatives and engineers, and health and safety officers, collectively regarded as some of the most respected and knowledgeable experts in the UK lifting industry.

With their combined expertise at our disposal, we’re able to target all areas of a project, providing planning, engineering and in-depth expertise in tandem with fleet capabilities of up to 1000 tonnes. That enables us to guarantee flawless execution on small-scale projects, complex lifts and heavy lifts in Hove.

Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Hove

Our contract lifting solutions encompass a range of services in which we can take on responsibility for every aspect of a project, from the initial consultation right through to final execution. We typically use market leading CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. That gives us a solid grounding we can use to move on to the subsequent method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management and transport logistics, and round the clock management.

Everything is handled by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, so you’ve always got complete peace of mind to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ when you choose Ainscough Crane Hire. For particularly high risk or complex lifts in Hove, we can combine several of our services into a single bespoke package that’s tailored to your exact schedule and requirements.
