Mobile crane hire & Contract lifting

Simmons Industrial’s Mobile Crane Hire Division specialise in Contract Lifting.

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. As part of the Contract Lift conditions all crane operations are Scoped, Managed, Supervised and carried out by Simmons' directly employed 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, competent and CITB certificated.

Let Simmons take the stress of managing your crane operation safely. We will provide:

  • The correct crane for the job
  • Raise the risk assessment, method statement and lift plan,
  • Arrange the trafficand pedestrian 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 Safe System of Work 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.
