For more than 40 years, we’ve been providing an array of lifting services to blue chip clients across multiple key sectors. We execute each project with our hallmarks of diligence, precision and efficiency, and our team comprises some of the most knowledgeable and respected experts in the industry – including teams of crane operators, lift operatives and engineers, contract lift managers, and health and safety officers.
By drawing on this considerable wealth of in-house expertise, we’re able to tackle all areas of a project, so you can always expect a truly unrivalled service on even the most complex or heavy lift in Shrewsbury.
Our contract lift solutions encompass a range of services in which our experts can take responsibility for every aspect of the lift, from the initial design and risk assessment all the way through to the final execution. At the earliest design phase, our specialists use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. From there, we can then move on to the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, and round the clock management.
All detailed planning is undertaken by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, and we can even provide several of these services in tandem as part of a bespoke turnkey package, one that’s tailored to your individual specifications and schedule.
With our large and diverse fleet here at Ainscough Crane Hire, we have in-depth specialist experience in serving a number of sectors, including:
