Expertise and dedicated logistics support

For more than four decades here at Ainscough Crane Hire, we’ve been using the size and range of our fleet to fulfil the requirements of our blue chip customers with our diverse array of lifting services, distinguished by our hallmarks of diligence, precision and efficiency. We don’t outsource any of these services, preferring instead to rely on our own in-house team, which consists of the most knowledgeable, experienced and trusted experts in the industry, including teams of crane operators, lift operatives and engineers, contract lift managers, and health and safety officers.

Their combined expertise enables Ainscough to target all areas of a project, including the most complex or heavy lifts in Oxfordshire. What’s more, it means our customers can always count on the very highest standard of service.

Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in Oxfordshire

Our contract lifting solutions encompass a wide range of services in which Ainscough personnel can handle all aspects of the lift, from the initial risk assessment all the way through to the final execution. During these initial design phases, we generally use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives us a solid foundation to move onto the method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management. We can also provide several of our services in the form of a bespoke, turnkey package – one tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
