CPA Contract Lifting

Graham Jones Crane Hire specialises in the provision of comprehensive contract lifting agreements. We operate as an efficient and reliable supply chain partner by providing a full lifting service that ensures your site complies with LOLER 1998 and key industry standards.

Our CPA (Construction Plant-Hire Association) contract lifting service is ideal if you do not have an Appointed Person to oversee the lift. It also offers a comprehensive and cost-effective solution if you are managing multiple contracts within a strict time schedule.

As members of the CPA, we operate in accordance with their stringent standards. Under this agreement, we assume responsibility for the lift, including equipment and personnel. We will plan and supervise your entire lifting operation, supply all necessary paperwork and instruct all personnel.
