Our contract lift solutions encompass a range of services in which Ainscough personnel can handle all aspects of the lift, right from the initial planning stages. Here, we typically use CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives us a solid grounding from which we can then move onto the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management and transport logistics, and round the clock management. We can provide all of these services in tandem, or undertake them individually as required.
Whatever option you choose, you can be sure that it’s all handled by our own specialist engineers and contract lift managers, giving you the total confidence you need to Make the Safe Choice with Ainscough Crane Hire. For particularly high risk, heavy or complex lifts in South London, we can even provide the option to choose several of our services in tandem, so you get the benefit of a bespoke turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact schedule and requirements.
Our diverse range of cranes encompasses mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes. We have decades of experience in using these to serve clients in the following key sectors:
We can make these vehicles available in any location, either as single units or as part of multi unit contract. So when you hire a crane in South London, whatever the nature or scale of your project, you can always count on a truly unrivalled service.
