Contract Lifting in Kent, South East London and Nationwide | Reliable Crane Hire Solutions

South East London Crane Hire provides a start-to-finish, fully managed service for the hire of lorry-mounted cranes. Our certified, in-house team recognises the importance of even the smallest detail to delivering an effective lifting service. As such, we cover every eventuality with standard hire and contract lifting options. With the perfect blend of resource availability, expertise and reliability, our crane hire and haulage company draws up a bespoke solution tailored to your unique needs.

Based in Longfield, Kent, we operate on a local, regional and nationwide basis. However, we primarily fulfil contracts in Greater London and across the South East.

Contract Lifting or Standard Hire?

It’s important to understand that a contracted lift differs slightly from standard crane hire. As a specialist in both options, we work closely with you from the outset to ensure you receive the most appropriate service. Whether you need plant haulage, container lifting or anything else, SELCH provides a solution in line with your specific lifting requirements.

When we carry out a lifting operation on a contract basis, our company assumes full control of the operation. This includes the provision of the Appointed Person to perform the lift in full compliance with BS 7121 and LOLER.

Under the terms of a CPA contract lift, it is our responsibility as the crane hire and haulage company to guarantee the safe operation of the crane, as well as the safety and welfare of the operator.

We are also responsible for:

  • Site Visit/Scope of Work

  • Crane Selection/Planning

  • Method Statement

  • Risk Assessment

  • Appointed Person

  • Slingers/Signallers

For added peace of mind, we also provide full insurance cover for contracted lifts.With a standard crane hire service, you, as the customer, assume responsibility for all the above, as well as the supply of information for the ground and lift.To discuss your requirements in more detail, or to schedule an initial site visit anywhere in Greater London or the South East, please contact us.


Why Choose Contract Lifting?

Contract lifts are the ideal solution if you are an individual with little to no experience of using cranes, or a company who does not have their own Appointed Person. Best of all, SELCH provides a fully managed, turnkey service for your lift, freeing up your time to focus on other areas of your move or project.

Our experienced, professional team plans and executes your lift in strict compliance with the latest industry and safety guidelines.

With a wide range of crane options, and a fleet of FORS-registered, Crossrail-compliant vehicles, we can access even tight, hard-to-reach sites in Kent, South East London and the surrounding areas.

Whether you need a single operation or multiple lifts, our crane hire and haulage company provides full management designed to achieve the best possible – and most cost-effective – solution.
