We are specialists in stair climbing services. Our team are dedicated to moving your heavy items up and down stairs. Our bespoke stair climbing machines enable us to get over the most demanding stair cases, and our experience enables us to assess a lift and know whether stair climbing is the right option to complete it efficiently and safely. Items that we have lifted include, air conditioning units, boilers, safes, cookers and many more. No job is too big or too small.
Manual Handling Service
All manual handling operations are assessed and carried out to stringent company regulations.

From light weight relocation to more demanding manual lifting operations we have provided the service where no other method is possible.
Specialist Heavy Lifting Service
and Crane Hire
With sites with limited access, on occasion there is a need to use a lorry mounted crane system. This unique service enables materials to be hoisted up onto the roof or in through a window of a building without the need to have scaffolding and a hoist installed on site. At Lift and Shift Services we do offer rigging for lifting and access should it be deemed necessary.
Using a wide variety of lifting equipment we can deliver our heavy lifting services up to 10,000kg. From hydraulic lifting to gantry and hoist based lifting we offer heavy lifting for almost every possible lifting challenge. Whether commercial or industrial we have relocated items in places as diverse as plant rooms and specialist manufacturing facilities throughout the UK. We are specialists in factory relocation, understanding the importance of getting your equipment moved as quickly and efficiently as possible, to get your operations back online. Using our hydraulic lifting system we can ensure that your heavy object is completely secured. This gives us massive lifting potential, 360º manoeuvrability and a safe and precise movement. Easily transportable and totally under our control.
The removal of cast iron boilers is just one of our specialities. Often due to the physical size and weight of cast iron and steel boilers removal of the redundant equipment can be a problem for the client or contractor. When this is the case we are able to attend site to offer a solution to the works that require carrying out. Whether the boilers to be removed require dismantling or cut this can be arranged. We can arrange for the attendance of an on site crane where the equipment requires lifting from its location.
Our team at Lift and Shift Services have the experience and expertise to ensure that the complex nature of your requirements can be fulfilled proficiently and with the upmost professionalism.
We carry out a full site survey and compile a bespoke lifting plan that includes full task specific risk method statements. This ensures that your contract lifting operation is managed to an extremely high standard with minimum disruption to your day-to-day business.
We stay ahead of the curve when it comes to safety and regulations, ensuring that our team are always fully qualified and equipped to carry out any task at hand.
Our contract lift service is often less time consuming and can be more cost effective for your business that you providing the relevant insurances and resources.
Plant and pipework removal
Removal of existing systems can be time consuming, problematic and potentially dangerous without the correct equipment for removal and by not carrying out a safe working procedure.

From the initial method statement and risk assessment through to the safe removal & disposal of the redundant equipment we can look after these works on your behalf, leaving you to progress with either the installation of the new system or an area of free space.
