Mobile crane hire

Simmons Industrial’s Mobile Crane Hire Division specialise in heavy lifting operations and lifting in confined spaces.

We use a national network of crane operators and an up-to-date fleet of cranes ranging in capacity from 8 tonnes to 1200te, in order to meet a diverse range of customer needs. All crane operations are supervised by Simmons personnel.

We also carry a comprehensive inventory of heavy lifting and load moving equipment and are able to fabricate custom-made equipment for special circumstances, allowing us to always find the correct solution for all types of lifting.

Our professional team of Crane Operators, Appointed Persons, Lift Supervisors and Slinger/Signallers are all experienced and CITB certificated.

Let Simmons take the stress of managing the lift safely. We will provide:

  • The correct crane for the job
  • Raise the risk assessment and method statement,
  • Arrange the traffic management,
  • Liaise with all relevant Public Authorities and
  • Supply the correct level of insurance.

With the introduction of BS7121 (British Standard Code of Practice for the Safe Use of Cranes) and LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) clients who do not have sufficient experience and knowledge to plan and supervise crane operations must place orders on a contract lift basis.

When hiring a crane under CPA Crane Hire conditions the client must provide an appointed person and supply our operator with a detailed method statement prior to the lift. The appointed person must supervise the lifting operation as detailed in BS 7121 (Safe Use of Cranes). Clients must also provide the right level of insurance cover.

When hiring a crane under CPA Contract Lift Conditions,Simmons Industrial Services Ltd will supply an appointed person to plan and supervise the lifting operation. We will also provide the agreed insurance cover as per CPA Contract Lift conditions. It’s all taken care of. Call us now.
