Term & Project Hire

We offer cranes, equipment and personnel for all types of project work throughout New Zealand within the following industries:

  • Commercial
  • Energy
  • Civil
  • Infrastructure
  • Heavy lift
  • Marine

Our term / project team are committed to offering solutions for any cranage requirements, and specialise in 'thinking outside the square' to provide innovative, cost effective and safe options.

We offer engineered cranage solutions to a worldwide standard aided by our full-time draughtsmen who have CAD drawing templates for each crane enabling proposals to be produced quickly for our customers. This facilitates drawings to be produced by personnel who know cranes and draw them day-in, day-out so the minor details that are normally missed are easily identified and rectified.

The term / project team consists of:

  • Management Personnel – who are also qualified to operate cranes
    and therefore understand what is required on-the-day
  • Sales / engineering
  • Draughtsmen
  • Site supervisors
  • Experienced lift supervisors
  • Certified and experienced operators
  • Rigger / dogman
  • Transport and equipment delivery personnel
