Why hire Simmons?

Skill, experience and safety are key to a speedy and successful lifting or plant handling project.  Sound planning, engineering and good communication are fundamental in achieving a successful outcome.  Our reputation is based on these significant areas of expertise and service.

Only being 10 miles from London means we are able to respond quickly to meet the clients’ needs.  Our site surveyors all attend site on motorcycles thus ensuring we arrive on time no matter the traffic conditions and this helps to reduce our environmental impact and congestion.

We have a full-time workforce of 22 people thus our riggers have over 100 years of experience ‘on the tools’ and receive frequent refresher training which is provided both internally and by external providers. 

We do not sub-contract work and do not use labour agencies for skilled labour.

Over the years our clients have chosen to put all their lifting and plant handling into one package and let us manage the risk, cutting their project costs and increasing productivity.

Customer satisfaction is one of our guiding principles therefore our site surveys are free of charge.

We are known affectionately as 'THE ANTI GRAVITY CREW'
