Guidelines and regulations are changing at a fast pace these days and unless you work in lifting operations on a regular basis it is difficult to keep up to date.

Companies should consider that every lifting operation is governed by the same regulations. If the contract lift option is not taken and crane hire only option is taken then the user is still committed to providing an appointed person and other certified labour themselves. This should also be backed by a risk assessment and method statement.


We often find that customers opt for the services of Mobile Crane Services because overall it proves to be more economical than providing labour and insurance from their own in house resources.

In the main our contract lifting services are provided as per the construction plant association standard conditions for a contract for the lifting and movement of goods involving crane operation.

As part of these conditions insurance covers are also provided which provide extra peace of mind when using this service. At the end of the day if your own employees get things wrong the financial and legal penalties can be very severe.

As standard practice Mobile Crane Services will advise on correct slinging methods and types of lifting tackle to be utilised, correct crane selection and positioning. It is also common place for Mobile Crane Services to organise road closures, arrange traffic and pedestrian protection and liaise with relevant authorities where required.
