With this considerable pool of in-house expertise at our disposal, we’re able to tackle all areas of a given project, even on the most complex or heavy lift in Inverness. This allows our customers to benefit from planning, engineering and in-depth expertise of the very highest quality – whether they require one off mobile crane hire, industry leading project management, or comprehensive contract lifting solutions in Inverness.

Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Inverness

Our range of contract lift solutions encompass a range of services in which Ainscough personnel can take on responsibility for every aspect of the lift, from the initial consultation right through to final execution. At the early design stage, we typically use CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives a solid grounding to move onto the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.

All this is handled by our own in-house specialists right here at Ainscough, so that you can always have total confidence to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. And if your project involves a particularly heavy or complex lift in Inverness, we can also combine several of our services into a single bespoke, turnkey package, all tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
