A sound solution for Ainscough Crane Hire

Don’t just take our word for it…

Who we work with is everything to us, our relationships with customers really matter.  We love working with people who think like we do. We want to inspire everyone to see how important the safety of their staff, themselves and anyone around them is and we’re doing a great job.

Our partnership with Ainscough Crane Hire, the largest lifting services company in the UK, continues to go from strength to strength as we work to support their ongoing business needs.

Ainscough Crane Hire prides themselves as having safety at the heart of everything they do, and this really works for us. With 30+ locations across the length of the country and more than 30,000 assets to be inspected at least twice a year, they need total confidence that we’ve got their machinery and pressure inspections covered. And we have. At every step of the way.

The challenge

The inspection needs of Ainscough Crane Hire are extensive to say the least. With almost 400 mobile cranes and additional lifting tackle, around 30 heavy cranes and a huge asset list, servicing this customer takes detailed planning and the expertise of some of most skilled and experienced people. And that’s not all – every single asset needs inspecting at least twice a year and with every inspection comes a detailed report.

Our solution

We get the job done and we get it done well. We’ve formed a true partnership with the Ainscough team even developing joint initiatives based on the strength of our combined knowledge. And we haven’t stopped there, we’ve taken our industry leading eReporting tool and we’ve tailored it specifically for our customer to make sure they have access to exactly what they need, when they need it, which in this case is on a daily basis.

With their very own Key Account Manager and ready access to our senior operational team, we work alongside our Ainscough Crane Hire colleagues to keep their plant and equipment safe.

Moving our large-scale Examination contracts to British Engineering Services in 2018 was a big decision, but we know it was the right one. We have been impressed with the transition, flexibility and desire to work together to help our business run safely, compliant, reliably and smoothly” – Graham Weights, Group Engineering Manager, Ainscough Crane Hire Limited (Nov 2018)
