Our customers also benefit from industry-leading expertise from our in-house team, which includes some of the UK’s most knowledgeable, experienced and trusted experts.

Contract Lift Projects

Leading contract lift projects in West Midlands

Our contract lift solutions in West Midlands comprise a range of services in which we can undertake all aspects of the lift, starting right from the initial consultation. During the preliminary design phase, we use cutting edge CAD software and BIM modelling to scope the exact requirements of the lift. This gives us a strong foundation from which we can then (as required) move on to the subsequent risk assessment, method statement provision, QHSE analysis, road closure management, transport logistics and round the clock management.

We don’t outsource any of these services. Instead, they’re all undertaken by our very own in-house engineers and contract lift managers, so you can always have the complete confidence to Make the Safe Choice when you choose Ainscough Crane Hire. If your project involves a particularly complex or heavy lift in West Midlands, we can even provide our services as a bespoke turnkey package, tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
