Contract lifting offers peace of mind to the customer as most of the responsibility is taken away from them. The customer still has a responsibility to ensure that the ground conditions are adequate for the crane travelling and rigging up on their site. The customer must provide accurate information about the weight and size of the load to be lifted and suitable lifting lugs etc.



Basic Hire Terms

The customer is responsible for planning the lift, selecting a suitable crane, specifying the slinging and signalling arrangements, supervising the lift and full responsibility for all lifting operations being undertaken.
