Why use King Lifting?

The perfect move: two 104 tonne ECTs

Lifting, moving, storing and installing two 31m x 4m gas tanks in two stages involved detailed planning and utilised four telescopic mobile crane models, working in tandem in pairs to safely and efficiently transfer the tanks from a port to their bunkers.

Professionalism and expertise

I was one of the team at Dormakaba when you guys came in to assist at the Southampton West Quay Shopping Centre and I would just like to put on record how easy you made our job. It was a bit problematic and the four guys with their professionalism and expertise reduced this massively and I can’t thank and praise them enough.

Exceptionally helpful

As the Quartermaster at DEMS Training Regiment I have to constantly upgrade our training stands and introduce new ones to ensure all our students receive the most realistic training prior to deployments. Our recent initiative to introduce several items of rolling stock will provide much needed scenarios across all of our courses. Being unable to ramp the rolling stock off the transport meant we needed the crane. Your guys who arrived on site were exceptionally helpful, patient and fully professional in all aspects of their task. Please convey my thanks for a job well done.

Both lifts went extremely well

Hi Bobby, I thought that I would just drop you a quick line to let you know how professional both crews that attended the De La Rue Overton Mill site on July 9th and 17th were. Both lifts went extremely well with Health & Safety being the first consideration. Please can you pass on my sincere thanks to both crews for a job well done.
