Testimonials

"Maxim Lifting supported us on a recent project by providing lifting and assembly services in order to allow us to demonstrate to our customer our equipment in operation. We decided to use the services of Maxim Lifting because of the industry knowledge and experience of Ben Holiday and John Temple.

The project was carried out over five months utilising mobile cranes and involved lifting sub-assemblies weighing up to eighty tonnes. Their ability to plan and execute complicated lifting operations at short notice enabled us to complete our project on time. Maxim Lifting’s ability to achieve the accuracy and alignment necessary for our equipment’s assembly was beyond our expectations.

We have been very pleased with their work on this project and plan to continue to work together on future projects."

− Gavin Sherwood, Production Engineer - Joy Global

"Just wanted to drop you a note and thank you for the no trouble, no hassle service that you have provided to this very challenging project. Your approach has enabled me to concentrate on other matters."

− Steve Hollins, Project Manager - Bowmer & Kirkland

"“This is the first time we have appointed Maxim Lifting in the roles of Appointed Person and CraneLift supervisor.
From the early planning stages of the project,continuing through to the day to day site management of tower crane operations they have conducted themselves in a professional, proactive manner; always ready to advise on tower crane management issues.

We would not hesitate to work with Maxim again in the future.”"

− Chris Hall BSc (Hons) | Planning Surveyor Marshall Construction (West Yorkshire) Ltd

FAQs

Q. What size crane do I need?

A. The main factors in determining the size of crane required are the weight of the load and the distance (or ‘radius’) from the crane it is being lifted or placed. These two factors are shown in the crane specifications in the “crane hire section”. There can however be other considerations such as load characteristics or restricted access, which influence the type and size of crane. If you have any doubts call the Hire desk for advice or commission a Contract Lift.

Q. What size crane can I hire from you?

A. We can supply all makes and model of crane anywhere in the UK.

Q. Do I need to provide anything on the day of the hire?

A. 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.

Q. Do I need insurance?

A. If the lift is performed under Crane Hire terms you must insure the crane for loss or damage whilst it is hired to you, even though it is driven by one of our drivers. This ‘Hired in Plant’ insurance must also cover the replacement cost of the crane and any loss of hire charges we suffer whilst the crane is being repaired. You should also have Third Party liability insurance.
Under Contract Lift conditions general insurance covering our indemnity should be held, refer to CPA conditions. These risks are covered by our insurance, with goods being lifted covered up to £250,000 and £10 million in respect of public and employers’ liability. Higher values can be covered at additional cost.

Q. What is an appointed person?

A. An Appointed Person is the person responsible for planning the lift and writing the Method Statement and Risk Assessment. They should be a ‘Competent Person’ as defined under Health and Safety legislation. Where an organisation does not have a Competent Person they should elect to have a Contract Lift.

Q. What standards are your workforce trained to?

A. All our people are certified under the CPCS (Construction Plant Competency Scheme), which is recognised by all major companies in the industry as the required standard. In addition all cranes and lifting equipment is tested regularly and the certificates kept on the cranes. In addition to this we are fully CHAS registered.

Q. What type of crane do I need?

A. Mobile cranes can be classified in five basic types, Mini Crane, All Terrain, Truck Mounted ,Mobile tower or Specialist. The lifting task, access to the site and load to be lifted will determine the most appropriate crane.

Q. What area do you cover?

A. We cover the whole of the UK and Channel Islands.

Q. Do you offer any other products and services?

A. We offer a wide range of products and services from operator hire to tower crane management. Please browse the home page to find what you are looking for.
