Crane and plant hire

Under the terms of a standard CPA Crane Hire Agreement, the crane and the operator are the responsibility of the customer once the crane leaves the public highway in order to access site. This includes travel on any access roads in the event that the site is not immediately adjacent to the public highway.

The Appointed Person must be fully trained to plan the lift and to provide a full method statement and risk assessment in accordance with BS7121 and LOLER, whilst overseeing both personnel and equipment. The customer is also required to hold the necessary insurance that complies with current legislation.

We will supply a suitable crane with a trained driver to work in accordance with your lifting plan and under the instruction of your Appointed Person. You are responsible for ensuring your lift is fully planned and supervised at all times.

If you would like to leave it with us, a contract lift undertaken by us will give you peace of mind that all lifting operations will comply fully with BS7121 and be performed by competent, trained staff.
