Lifting Services

We can carry out repairs of all lifting equipment, including hydraulic and pneumatic equipment and test most lifting equipment such as lifting beams, containers and winches. The majority of our services can be undertaken in-house at our Middlesbrough depot, but if required, we can perform on-site repairs, inspection and testing at our clients' base of operation. Whatever is most convenient for you, on-site testing is more suitable for larger equipment that cannot be transported easily.
