For more than four decades, we’ve been providing blue chip customers with a diverse range of lifting services, each of which is distinguished by our hallmarks of diligence, efficiency and precision. We don’t outsource any of these services, preferring instead to entrust them to our very own experts here at Ainscough, who are some of the most trusted and experienced professionals in the industry.

With their combined in-house expertise at our disposal, we’re capable of targeting all areas of a project, and guaranteeing a truly unrivalled service regardless of the scale or complexity of the task at hand.
Our contract lifting solutions cover a comprehensive range of lifting solutions, in which we can handle every aspect of any individual lift, from the initial consultation right through to final execution. In the earliest design phases, we typically market-leading CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives us a solid foundation to move onto the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All this detailed planning is undertaken by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, so that we can give you complete peace of mind to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. If your project involves a particularly high risk or heavy lift in Leicestershire, we can even provide several of our services in tandem, in the form of a bespoke, turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact schedule and requirements.
