Contract Lifts

As part of our professional and experienced service, we offer a fully comprehensive contract lift service. Upon inquiry, our appointed persons will arrange a free, no obligation site visit that is convenient for you. 
 Following from which we will then put together a full Lift Plan, Risk Assessment and Method Statement. On the day of the lift we provide the crane, operator, lift supervisor, slinger/signaller(s) and all insurances to cover the task and comply with current regulations and EU legislation.
 All contract lifts are undertaken under the CPA Contract Lift terms & Conditions.

Which do I need, CPA hire or Contract Lift?

CPA Crane Hire

Under the terms of a standard CPA Crane Hire, the crane and our operator are the responsibility of the customer once the crane leaves the public highway in order to access your site. This includes travel on any access or haulage roads when the site is not accessible directly from the highway.. The customer's Appointed Person is responsible for planning the lift and all the personnel and equipment involved. In addition, under CPA conditions, the customer is responsible for and we suggest should provide for the following:

         -               Loss or damage to plant and equipment whilst on site and under the    customer's supervision

         -             Loss of or damage to the goods/load being lifted

         - Continuing hiring charges whilst the equipment is unable to work as a result  of loss or damage.

 -           Legal liability - injury to the driver/operator whilst under the supervision and control of the customer along with injury to third parties, including damage to their property, arising from crane operations.
For hires under CPA Crane Hire agreement, it is important to note the following:

-         -             - The Customer's Appointed person must have the knowledge and          understanding of all aspects of the lifting operation.

-          -             - The Crane Owner must supply a competent operator and crane    fit for  purpose; BS7121 - Safe Use of Mobile Cranes gives a full  description of roles  and responsibilities.

In summary, under a CPA Crane Hire agreement, it is the customer's responsibility to fully plan, control, supervise and insure the crane operation and personnel.
