Crane hire

Welcome to Carter Crane Hire

Unlike many crane hire companies, we specialise in all types of lifting from light to heavy loads in most parts of the UK and if required, Europe-wide (subject to duration and availability).

We have been in the plant hire industry for over 40 years and are members of the Construction Plant-hire Association (CPA) with company director Nick Carter having completed a term as the south-west area representative.

In addition to being a CPA member, we are also members of the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA) and BSi (the national standards body for the UK). We also hold the prestigious ISO 9001:2008 quality assurance seal of approval.

Our aim is to provide a reliable, speedy and economical service, using our highly experienced heavy lifting team and technology, for a service tailored to customer requirements. With our construction, transport and training departments, we are able to offer our customers a wide ranging service:

  • Based on CPA terms and conditions for standard crane hire and full contract lifts
  • Public and Products liability insurance
  • “On hook” insurance if required
  • Insurance cover for third party damage to our cranes
