Understanding Contract Lift and CPA Crane Hire

In the realm of lifting operations, having a trusted partner can make all the difference. Complete Lifting Services offers two primary services that cater to different needs and circumstances: Contract Lift and CPA Crane Hire. This blog delves into the intricacies of both services, helping you make an informed decision tailored to your specific requirements.

Why Opt for a Contract Lift?

When you choose a Contract Lift, you are essentially opting for a comprehensive service where Complete Lifting Services takes on the majority of the responsibilities. From the lifting appliance and operator to the entire lift operation, everything remains under the purview of our experienced team.

This means that we are responsible for ensuring that the lifting operations are meticulously planned, and a safe system of work is rigorously followed. Our qualified and competent personnel are on hand to carry out and complete the lifting operation, adhering to the highest standards of safety and efficiency.

Furthermore, we assume legal liability for any injury, loss, damage, or destruction to property that might occur during the lift – this includes damage to the goods and materials being lifted. The plant is also insured against damage under our watch.

CPA Crane Hire: What You Need to Know

CPA Crane Hire presents a different scenario. Here, the responsibility shifts to you, the customer. You must ensure that you are adequately insured against injury and damage to the equipment and third parties during the lift.

It is imperative to have an Appointed Person and suitable professionals available to supervise the lift, alongside a trained Slinger Signaller to attach and detach the load. A Safe System of Work (Lift Plan) must be in place, providing clear and comprehensive guidance for the lifting appliance operator.

Weighing Your Options

Both CPA Crane Hire and Contract Lift have their distinct advantages and disadvantages. Your choice between the two will depend on a variety of factors including your budget, available resources on site, and insurance coverage.

While risk is an intangible factor, your financial outlay is not. As a procurement manager or buyer, your decision will pivot on how much you are willing to reduce risk compared to your upfront expenditure.

Our Fleet at Your Service

At Complete Lifting Services, we boast a diverse fleet of cranes, each suited to different types of projects. A prime example is the Kato CR-200Ri 20te City Crane, ideal for sites with limited access and setup space.
