Crane Hire should only be undertaken by individuals or organisations that can satisfy the crane owner that they have sufficient knowledge, experience and training in performing a lifting operation safely.

Southern Cranes can provide a comprehensive contract lift solution for all your mobile crane, mobile tower crane and spider crane requirements, with an emphasis on safety.

Any organisation requiring a load to be lifted and moved which does not own its own crane, has two basic options:

Hiring a crane (Crane Hire) or employing a contractor to carry out the lifting operation (Contract Lift).

Our friendly team of experts are available to resolve your queries and can offer you the best advice for your project. For more information on mobile crane hire, mobile tower crane hire or contract lifting in general, please contact us here with your enquiry.
