For more than 40 years, at Ainscough Crane Hire we’ve been using our diverse array of lifting services to complete contracts for clients across a broad range of sectors, while giving them access to unrivalled knowledge and expertise from some of the most respected and knowledgeable experts in the industry. We don’t outsource any of our lifting services, preferring to entrust them to our own in-house staff, which comprises lift operatives, engineers, crane operators, contract lift managers, and health and safety officers.
With this considerable pool of combined expertise at our disposal, we’re able to guarantee peerless service on any contract lift in Merseyside, all distinguished with our hallmarks of diligence, precision and efficiency.
Our contract lift solutions cover a range of services in which Ainscough personnel can handle all aspects of the lift, from the initial consultation right through to final execution. At the earliest design phase, we use market-leading CAD software and BIM modelling to scope out the exact requirements of the lift. From here, we can then 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 carried out by our own specialists and contract lift managers, so you can always have the complete peace of mind to ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. If your project involves a particularly heavy or complex lift in Merseyside are concerned, we can even provide several of our services in tandem, in the form of a bespoke turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
With the UK’s largest and most diverse fleet at our disposal, we have a long history of providing market-leading service to a number of key sectors, including:
Each of our lifting services allows you to choose from our wide range of mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes, which you can utilise either as single units or as part of a multi unit contract.
