Like a crane, there are ups and downs for us all in life, but when would there be a need for emergency crane hire?

It’s Christmas, which means it’s the peak season for boilers, ovens and electrics in general to break down. Nothing screams emergency like the oven conking out right in the middle of cooking the Christmas turkey, or the boiler packing up on Christmas Eve. 

The kids are not only too excited to sleep…now they’re too cold to sleep too. That’s why British Gas engineers work the Christmas Day shift just like doctors and hospital staff do. 

However annoying these low-level “emergencies” might be though, most of us could survive the hardship of a night or two without the oven or the boiler. However what if it’s something that goes wrong, on a much bigger scale? 

The services of an emergency crane hire company become essential in various situations where immediate and efficient lifting solutions are required. 

The scope of our emergency crane rental service. 

At Fortis Heavy Lift Group, we pride ourselves on a quick response time and are usually able to respond to scenarios within 24 hours. We provide emergency response in two scenarios. 

If a crucial piece of machinery or equipment breaks down unexpectedly and requires immediate replacement or repair, an emergency crane hire company like us, can swiftly mobilise and assist in lifting and installing the replacement components.

Construction projects often encounter unforeseen challenges that demand quick and flexible solutions.
