Other Services We Offer
In addition to standard crane hire services, we also assist in the following capacities:
- Long Reach Crane Hire
- HIAB Hire
In addition to lifting heavy, large, and bulky objects from one position to another, we can transport these objects to an entirely different location. The kind of objects that a crane is needed to lift aren’t the sort of objects you can transport in a van or car. These objects need to be transported on a flatbed.
You might be relocating to a new site and looking to move across machinery and equipment. Or maybe you’re looking to move large bulky units from where they were produced/ stored to where they are intended to be used. These are just two of the many scenarios where our transportation team can be of assistance.
We remove any frustration or hassle from the equation, providing a stress-free service from start to finish.
Difference Between Crane Hire and Lifting Contract
We’ve discussed crane hire above, and it’s worth noting the difference between crane hire and lifting contracts. A lifting contract is what most of our customers will require as this involves us taking full responsibility for operating the crane, planning the lift, and ensuring health and safety responsibilities are adhered to.
Crane hire can also be simply that – you hire the crane which gets delivered. Your team would then be responsible for operating the crane, planning the lift, and enforcing health and safety responsibilities onsite. This sort of service is usually only requested by tradesmen with the necessary skill sets or a team that includes a licenced crane operator.
Long Reach Crane Hire and Hiab Hire
Some lifts require that an item be lifted at a much greater distance. One example of this is lifting a heavy item in the back garden with the crane extended over the property. This is necessary for situations where access prevents a clear line of sight between the crane and the object. Fortunately, we’re equipped to handle lifting items in such scenarios with the Fassi 800 with a fly jib.
This crane can lift up to 1.4 tonnes at 26 metres and has a total reach of 29 metres.
We also possess a HIAB crane – the HIAB 700 with a fly jib that can lift up to 1.7 tonnes at 22 metres. A HIAB crane is one that’s mounted to a lorry. HIAB cranes have a large number of uses and so can often replace the need for a mobile crane or forklift at the worksite.
