Our contract lifting solutions cover a varied range of services in which Ainscough’s specialist engineers and contract lift managers can take on responsibility for all aspects of the lift, right from the initial design phase.

We don’t outsource any of this work, preferring instead to for everything to be handled by our own in-house team, so that you can have complete peace of mind the ‘Make the Safe Choice’ with Ainscough Crane Hire – whether your project involves one-off crane hire, industry-leading project management, or comprehensive contract lifting solutions in Sherborne.
