Lift & Shift Services

A mechanical movement, otherwise known as a ‘lift and shift’ service, involves the movement of heavy plant within an area that is otherwise inaccessible to cranes. Our mechanical movement service is suitable for more complex lifts which require intricate planning in order for the move to be completed successfully. All of our lift and shift services are carried out by knowledgeable experts who are fully trained and highly experienced in carrying out complicated heavy plant movement.


If you have any internal heavy machinery which needs to be relocated or other large and particularly bulky items, then you may require the load to be moved using our mechanical movement service. We are able to provide the specialist equipment and skilled labour required to complete these manoeuvres successfully. Our mechanical movement services include the following:

  • Pre lifting on-site assessment
  • Job planning
  • Risk assessment
  • Full insurance and relevant permits
  • Traffic management where necessary
  • Liaison with local authorities
  • Fully trained personnel
  • The latest lifting equipment
