Keep things simple

Large plant movement projects are complicated to plan and manage. Coordinating different elements, such as crane hire and equipment deliveries, particularly when dealing with different contractors, is logistically demanding.

By choosing our plant movement and machinery installation service, you can consolidate all aspects of the project under one management team. With our service, the loading and unloading of all equipment, coordination of crane requirements and delivery of material supplies and major plant items are streamlined under the care of a single movement contractor. 

This saves you time, money and makes things much simpler for you. 

Keep things cost-effective

Hiring multiple contractors to manage different aspects of your project separately is very expensive. Instead, using our comprehensive plant movement and machinery installation service you can ensure that your project remains within budget. 

Stay fully compliant

All our contract lifting solutions are carried out in full compliance with current standards:

  • BS7121 – Safe Use of Cranes and Lorry Loaders
  • LOLER – Lifting Operations & Lifting Equipment Regulations.
 

We work closely with your site’s health and safety personnel to ensure that you remain compliant and safe throughout the project.

PLANT MOVEMENT FAQs

We will supply the Appointed Person if required and carry out all work under contract lift conditions. If you are looking for Plant and Labour hire only and already have an appointed person to write the lifting and handling plans then we can provide plant and labour only under CPA.

Our Machine Moving Services will always be supplied under Contract Lift Conditions, so we will provide all insurance for goods lifted and handled along with all liability Insurance. If you only require plant and labour, we can facilitate this,  but you will need to cover the plant and liabilities insurance and provide an Appointed Person and Supervision.

All our plant will come with highly qualified operators. If you have your own rigging team and Ap we can work under your plan and supervision. If not then we can supply all plant and labour along with Appointed Person and Lift Planning.
