Our contract lift solutions encompass a range of services in which our experts can take on responsibility for all aspects of the lift, from consultation right through to execution. At the initial design phase, we typically use market leading CAD software or BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift, which then gives us a solid foundation from which we can move onto the risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.
All of this is carried out by our very own specialist engineers and contract lift managers here at Ainscough, giving you the confidence to ‘Make the Safe Choice’. Wherever a particularly heavy or complex lift is concerned, we also provide the option to choose several of our services together in a bespoke, turnkey package that’s tailored to your exact schedule and requirements.

Our fleet encompasses mobile tower cranes, crawler cranes and heavy cranes, which can be made available as single units, or in tandem as part of a multi unit contract.
