Our contract lifting solutions cover a comprehensive range of solutions in which we undertake all aspects of the lift, from design right through to execution. At the initial design phase, we begin by using CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. We can then use this information as the basis for the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management and transport logistics, as well as providing round the clock management.
We provide all this detailed planning in-house, so you can always have complete confidence as you ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire. Where particularly high risk or heavy lifts in Scarborough are concerned, we can offer our customers the option to choose several of our services in a single bespoke turnkey package, tailored to your specific schedule and requirements.
