For more than 40 years, Ainscough has been at the centre of a range of key sectors, providing blue chip customers access to a diverse array of lifting services distinguished by the hallmarks of precision, diligence and efficiency. We don’t outsource any of these lifting services; instead, they’re delivered by our own in-house team, which comprises some of the most experienced and trusted professionals in the lifting industry – including crane operators, lift operatives and engineers, contract lift managers, and health and safety officers.
This gives us a considerable pool of in-house expertise that allows us to tackle all areas of a project, including on even the most heavy or complex lifts. When you choose Ainscough Crane Hire, you can count on a truly unrivalled service, whether you require one-off mobile crane hire, industry-leading project management, or comprehensive contract lifting solutions in Peterlee.
Our range of contract lifting solutions cover a wide variety of services in which our experts can undertake all aspects of the lift, right from the initial design phase. Here, we use CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the project. From there, that gives us a solid grounding from which we can move onto the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
We’ve made sure that you can have the confidence to Make the Safe Choice with Ainscough Crane Hire, as all this detailed planning is undertaken by our very own specialist engineers and contract lift managers. For particularly high risk or complex lifts in Peterlee, we can even provide a bespoke turnkey package, specifically tailored to your own individual deadlines and requirements.
Our large and diverse fleet encompasses mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes. We use these to serve a wide array of specialist sectors, including:
• Petrochemical, oil and gas
• Power generation
We’re able to put these at your disposal in any location, either as single units or as part of a multi-unit contract. Whatever the nature or scale of your operations in Peterlee, you can rely on Ainscough to provide all the reliability, availability, capability and expertise you need.
