Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Humberside

Our contract lifting solutions encompass a multitude of lifting services in which our experts can undertake responsibility for all aspects of the lift, ranging from the initial risk assessment right through to the final execution. At the early design phases, we use cutting-edge CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This information equips us to move on to the next stages as required – we can handle the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management. (Alternatively, we can liaise with your existing teams to co-ordinate our services with your existing specialists.)

We don’t outsource any of our lifting services – instead, they’re all handled by our in-house experts, so you can always have the total confidence to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. In cases that might involved particularly high risk or complex lifts in Humberside, we can even provide several of our services as a single bespoke turnkey package, tailored to your individual requirements and schedule.
