As part of our services, we are able to offer Mobile Crane Hire, under CPA Hire terms and conditions and under this arrangement you must have the necessary personnel, experience and ability to plan and supervise the lifting operation in accordance with the ‘Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998’ (LOLER98).
We can assist with offering technical advice, site visits and inspections, along with a selection of additional personnel, tested and inspected lifting accessories and support equipment to help you comply with the requirements of LOLER98. You would also need to ensure that you have in place ‘Hired-in Plant Insurance’ to cover the value of the crane which you are looking to hire, although if you do not carry a sufficient level of cover, we are able to offer ‘Hired-in Plant Insurance’ as a part of your hire contract, at an additional premium.

In order to ensure that lifting operations fully comply with LOLER98, the HSC introduced BS7121 the approved code of practice for LOLER98.
This provides a set of guidelines, for all types of lifting operation and machine, which if followed, should ensure compliance with the requirements of the legislation.
We are able to offer a ‘Contract Lift’ option, planned in accordance with BS7121 where we would provide an ‘Appointed Person’ to undertake the planning of the lifting operation, conducting a site survey and risk assessment and using the supplied information from yourselves regarding the ‘to and from’ locations, load weight, lifting arrangement and ground conditions, produce a full written ‘Risk Assessment and Method Statement’ including a crane berthing plan for submission and approval.
We will then, on the day of lifting operation, supply the required crane, personnel, on-site supervision, equipment and insurance necessary. We will carry out the lifting operation to your requirements, following the supplied Risk Assessment and Method Statement, ensuring both your and our compliance with the LOLER98 regulations. Contract Lifting has become the Industry Standard for high profile, high risk and complex lifting operations, providing a higher level of service, standard and efficiency.
We have a modern and well maintained fleet of HGV Vehicles offering support for your lifting requirements.
We operate both rigid and articulated Lorries, and also operate a number of vehicles fitted with lorry loaders. We operate assorted trailers for our articulated lorries, including extendable semi-low loader, 45’ Flat, 40’-60’ trombone / extendable flat, Euroliner and 45’ 5 axle table top ballast trailers.
We can transport loads under C&U regulations up to 28 tonnes and 4 metres in width and abnormal indivisible loads under STGO regulations up to 65 tonnes giving us the capacity to offer a one stop solution to all your lifting and moving requirements.
With the ability to unload, skate, jack and move all types of machines and equipment, to within buildings, warehouses and factories, we are able to provide a complete ‘lift and shift’ service, from small industrial machines, right up to complete factory move projects.
We are able to also manage these lifting operations under Contract Lift terms and conditions, meaning that your equipment is fully insured from disconnection to re-installation. This can then be planned and project managed by our team of Appointed Person’s and lift supervisors, ensuring full compliance with all the relevant legislation and Insurance requirements.
