‘Crane Hire’ or ‘Contract Lift’ – which is right for you?

We offer you two main options of lifts; Crane Hire or Contract Lift – both are based on CPA conditions.

To help you decide the best of these options for you please consider the following;

  1. Have you had a crane before?
  2. Have you employees with CPCS appointed person /CPCS sinder signaller and correct insurance cover?
  3. Do you know the weight and dimensions of the lift?
  4. Can the crane set up on a good hard-standing?
  5. Is there enough room for the crane to enter/exit the site?
  6. Is the area free of obstructions such as overhead cables, underground services or confined spaces?

If you answered ‘no’ to any of the above questions a Contract Lift may be the best option for you.

CPA Contract Lift.

As this is a high risk industry we recommend that customers who are not experienced in hiring cranes and not aware of the responsibilities, duties and risks take advantage of our CPA Contract Lift service.

With this option, all aspects of the lift from initial planning, health and safety assessment and monitoring and management of the lift itself through to all necessary insurance is provided by Dylan Thomas Cranes to ensure your total piece of mind.
