Carter Group hires cranes out under CPA Terms and Conditions for Standard Crane Hire and Contract Lifting Services. We hire mainly in the south west including Exeter, Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset, and for longer hires we can provide cranes nationally as well as into Europe (subject to duration and availability). We can also provide ‘on hook’ insurance cover to hired cranes for those customers who do not have the benefit of specific insurance.

All of our mobile, all-terrain cranes travel with full fly jib assembly and have free on wheels (lift/carry) duties.
