Our diverse array of lifting services are distinguished by our hallmarks of diligence, precision and efficiency, and our staff comprise some of the most respected and knowledgable experts in the lifting industry.

Our contract lifting solutions encompass a wide range of services in which our specialist can handle all aspects of the lift, from the initial design phase all the way through to final execution.

All this is carried out by our very own in-house staff here at Ainscough, allowing you to have the total peace of mind to ‘Make the Safe Choice’. If yours is a particularly complex or heavy lift in Workington, we can also provide several of our services in tandem in the form of a bespoke turnkey package, tailored to your exact requirements and schedule.
