Why Choose Premier Cranes for Lifting & Rigging Services?

Complete Project Management Support

Our projects and engineering team support our clients in the planning and development phases of their projects to ensure the successful completion of key deadlines. The best possible lifting solutions are recommended and tailored to individual project requirements – providing the necessary drawings and compliance documentation critical to the approval process.

For the best visualisation of your lifting scenario we use: AutoCAD, 3D Modelling, Satellite Imagery, and Architectural/ Engineering Drawings to assess and calculate. We work closely with our clients to provide cost effective solutions alongside a safe installation. This process ensures that each lift is carefully managed and falls within safe lifting capacity parameters. This is invaluable for safety studies, obtaining council permits and guiding engineering requirements.
