Why choose contract lift

Under a CPA (Construction Plant Hire Association) crane hire agreement we would be responsible for providing a well-maintained crane together with a competent CPCS (Construction Plant Competence Scheme) qualified operator (if required.) Besides this the liabilities to plan and supervise the lifting procedure remain with the client

A bespoke package

If a client has a particularly complex lift, or has limited experience with lifting items, we can provide a bespoke package for a fully contracted lift tailored to you and your project.  The bespoke package sees us provide all lifting management duties, organized by one of our experienced, fully-trained Appointed Persons, alongside a Lifting Supervisor, who ensures that the lifting operation goes ahead as planned by the Appointed Person, and a Slinger/Signaller, who communicates with the Crane Operator and fits lifting accessories to the load and hook of the crane.

A bespoke package ensures complete piece of mind for our customers, who will know their lifts are being organized by experienced, fully-trained and qualified professionals.  Under this contract the liability remains with Hawks throughout the lifting procedure.
