For more than 40 years, our lifting services have been distinguished by our hallmarks of diligence, efficiency and precision, which have helped make us the preferred choice for blue chip customers across the country. Our team is composed of the most experienced and respected professionals in the lifting industry, including teams and lift operatives and engineers, contract lift managers and crane operators, and health and safety officers.
Drawing upon this considerable pool of combined in-house expertise allows us to tackle all areas of a project, with safety at the heart of everything we do. That means our customers can expect unrivalled service on every project, on even the most complex or heavy lift.
Our contract lifting solutions encompass a range of services in which we can take on responsibility for all aspects of a given project, spanning from the initial consultation right through to final execution. At the initial design phase, we use CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift, which gives us a solid foundation we can then use to proceed with the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All planning and execution of these services is undertaken by our very own experts at Ainscough, allowing you to have total confidence to ‘Make the Safe Choice’. Where particularly demanding or complex lifts are concerned, we can also provide several of our services in tandem in the form of a bespoke, turnkey package – one that’s tailored to your exact schedule and requirements.
Our large, diverse fleet encompasses heavy cranes, mobile cranes, and mobile tower cranes. We have over four decades of experience in using these to provide market leading service to a number of key sectors, including:
