Jon took on craning my studio into my garden - I had asked around and many didn’t consider the job a priority or worth their while but Jon instantly made my job feel important and arranged a consultation with 24hrs. He talked through the process and reassured me that the job would be no problem. Jon turned up on time and did the job in no time at all. Jon’s professionalism instantly settled my nerves. If you’re looking for a professional, Jon’s your man 🙂

I recently had the pleasure of working with Sherrington Lifting Services and I must say that I was extremely impressed with their services. From the moment I contacted them, they were professional, responsive, and highly knowledgeable.Jon and his team of operators were well-trained and experienced, and they took great care in ensuring that the lifting operation was carried out in the safest and most efficient manner possible. They used state-of-the-art equipment and had a deep understanding of the various technical aspects of the lifting job.What really stood out to me was their exceptional customer service. They were friendly, communicative, and always willing to answer any questions that I had. They also went above and beyond to ensure that the job was completed within the timeframe and budget that we had agreed upon.Overall, I would highly recommend Sherrington Lifting Services to anyone in need of professional and reliable lifting services. They truly exceeded my expectations and I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future.

Wonderful service. I got a few quotes as you normally do and one company quoted me three times what these guys did.I called Jon and asked about lifting a hot tub into my garden. He instantly said that’s easy for them to do and they do lots of them. He said he would look on Google Earth and get back to me. Phoned me first thing the next morning and said it was prefect for getting the tub in. We arranged for 8am on the Friday and he emailed me to confirm.Come Friday the crane arrived about 7:55 and the operator was very friendly. Careful to ensure he wasn’t blocking the road with neighbours heading to work. A van arrived moments later and they took a look at the area.As with these things the hot tub didn’t arrive until around 8:20 but they didn’t seem bothered. They even said they have plenty of time.The hot tub comes and they get straight to work with securing it and lifting it over the wall and directly onto my decking.Careful to get the position right and straight. They release their lines and start clearing up after themselves. Careful to put the crane away and clear the street. Probably took longer to pack up than the lift, that’s how efficient they were.I noticed they used soft mats on the street where they put their supports down. Nice to see they cared about protecting the road too.I would not hesitate to use them again in the future and definitely recommend them to others.

Before you contact us about a specific question, please check our FAQ's we may already have the answer for you.

Operating In High Winds

All cranes have a maximum design wind speed for safe operation. When the wind speed exceeds this limit the crane must be taken out of service. Different types of crane, different models of the same type of crane and different configurations of the same model may operate with different maximum wind speeds. The operating wind speed for the crane will allow for

the load having a certain wind area; if this is exceeded then the working wind speed will need to be reduced (see the manufacturer’s manual for information on this).

Typical maximum operating wind speeds are:

Mobile Cranes 9.8 m/s (22 m.p.h.) Beaufort Scale 5

Proximity To Hazards

Hazards best avoided, where possible, include:

  • Overhead electric lines
  • Nearby structures
  • Other cranes
  • Railways
  • Public access areas
  • Airfields

Where any part of the crane or its load cannot be kept clear of these hazards, the appropriate authority, e.g. a local electricity supplier or Railtrack, must be consulted.

Danger from vaults or underground services must not be overlooked, and suitable precautions must be taken where they cannot be avoided.

Where the crane or its load passes closer than 600mm to an obstacle, effective precautions must be taken to avoid crushing, by preventing personnel accessing the area.

Where a crane is to be used within 15 metres plus the length of its jib, from overhead power lines on steel towers, (or 9 metres plus the length of the jib, from overhead lines on wood, concrete or steel poles) the guidance given in HSE Guidance Note GS6 must be followed.

Where a crane will work close to railway property (i.e. if it fell over and any part of it, or any load being lifted by it, could fall on railway property), consult the railway property owner and CPES.

If the crane is within 6 km of an airfield, and its height exceeds 10 m or that of the surrounding structures or trees, then the Appointed Person should seek the permission of the airfield manager before starting operations.

Ground conditions

Cranes have very high axel weights, and need good solid ground the same as a lorry would need. You will also need to make sure there are no sharp objects in the path of the crane when gaining access to the site.
