Crane hire in the UK can be divided into two key routes: Certified Crane Hire and Certified Contract Lift.
Certified Crane Hire
Certified Crane Hire is a suitable option if you have experienced personnel onsite to take responsibility of the crane when in use. Once onsite, the hired crane, any equipment and persons involved with the operation of the crane will be accountable to the Appointed Person. Under a standard Certified Crane Hire Agreement, the Appointed Person will need to have the knowledge and expertise to plan and execute the lifting operation.
If you wish to hire a crane under a Certified Crane Hire Agreement, you will need the appropriate insurance cover to protect equipment, personnel and the goods that are being lifted. This includes loss or damage protection and legal liability.
Certified Contract Lift
This crane hire option allows you to keep the responsibility of the crane in the hands of the crane owner. This must also include an Appointed Person or Crane Supervisor supplied on behalf of the crane owner, who will accept liability for planning and supervising the lift project.
As the crane owner has responsibility, this crane hire option has insurance cover that includes loss or damage of plant equipment, loss or damage to third party property and liability. The customer still takes some responsibility when hiring a crane under the Certified Contract Lift Agreement and must ensure that protection is provided in the event of own negligence, inadequate and unstable ground conditions and inadequate or incorrect information about the goods being lifted.
