Do I need to provide anything on the day of the hire?
Providing you have notified us the nature of the lift when ordering the crane we will bring with us the necessary lifting gear such as slings, chains and shackles to lift the load. All cranes carry a selection of this type of equipment. For more complex lifts or where there are additional requirements such as lifting beams they will be provided at an additional charge. Under Crane Hire conditions the driver will ask to see the Risk Assessment, Method Statement and Berthing Study before he commences the job. These are required by The Health and Safety at Work Act, under the Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998. If you are unable to produce these documents the lift will have to be abandoned and you will be charged for the crane. If you do not have a ‘Competent Person’ able to produce these documents and to supervise the operation you should ask us to do a Contract Lift, where we take responsibility for the lift.
