Lifting with MEWPS

Lifting with MEWPS can save money and reduce the need for additional plant on site

Advantages of lifting with MEWPS

Unlike most lifting equipment MEWPS (mobile elevating work platforms) are designed to safely lift people.  With  proper planning and where safe carrying capacity allows MEWPS can be used to lift equipment and materials at the same time as providing a platform for your engineers to safely work from.

Save money if your load can be lifted by MEWP rather than a crane

One piece of lifting equipment for people and materials simplifies the lifting operation

Reduction in space needed for plant

Reduce the amount of traffic management needed when working on the highway

Provides a safe platform for working at height

The MEWP cage can be precisely positioned exactly where you need to work

Lifting accessories

Each lifting project is unique and the type of materials and equipment our clients need to lift varies vastly.  To account for different shape and sizes of load we have specialist lifting accessories available which have been specifically designed for our MEWPs.
