Whether you require ad hoc mobile crane hire in Somerset for a specific task, or multiple vehicles for longer-term, larger scale projects, you can always rely on Ainscough Crane Hire to provide all the reliability, availability, expertise and capability you need.
Our contract lifting solutions encompass a range of services in which we can undertake all aspects of the lift, ranging from the initial design and risk assessment all the way through to final execution. During these initial design phases, we typically use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the project. From there, we then have a solid basis to move on to the method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management and transport logistics, as well as round the clock management.
All this is handled by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, and we can even provide several of these services in tandem in the form of a bespoke turnkey package, which is tailored to your own specific schedule and requirements.
Our large, diverse fleet encompasses mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes. That gives us the flexibility to serve clients in a broad array of key sectors, including:
