Crane Hire Services

ACHS can provide cranes / hiabs to suit most hirers requirements either from our own resources or from our colleagues in the industry.

The hirer / user must ensure any lifting complies with the current regulations and work is carried out in accordance with the HSE guidelines. It is the customers responsibility to provide all the necessary documentation i.e. method statements and risk assessments to enable the work to be carried out safely and in accordance with BS 7121, loler and puwer legislation.

All our operators carry CPCS cards to prove their competence, all our plant and lifting equipment carries current certification and is checked by an independent insurance inspector on a regular basis.

Armquest can provide a free of charge / no obligation inspection service to ensure the correct crane is selected for each operation, but it is the hirers responsibility to take care of the rest, this service is most suited to the experienced hirer who also have personnel with the appropriate qualifications to organise and control a lifting operation.

A firm was recently fined £250,000 for carrying out an unsafe lifting operation, make sure this does not happen to you. We pride ourselves in being able to provide a safe and cost effective solution to almost any lifting requirement and welcome the opportunity to quote for any work you may have.

In a nutshell there is no lift too small or too large for ACHS to undertake so come and join our growing list of satisfied customers.
