It might not seem like an extremely common situation to find yourself in, but the possibility that you will, at some point, require a crane lift over your house isn’t as unlikely as you might think.

How Much Weight Can a Crane Lift?

Before you start envisioning your new home office plummeting through your roof, forcing you to work in a pile of rubble instead of an efficient office space, allow us to provide some much-needed peace of mind.

A typical tower crane has a maximum lifting power of 18 metric tons (that’s about 40,000 lbs). The closer the load is positioned to the mast, the more weight the crane can lift.

With the average outdoor office weighing approximately 4000 lbs, the tower crane is more than qualified to manoeuvre your new garden home office into the perfect spot.

At Emerson Cranes, we stock a variety of mobile cranes for hire. If you would like to receive tailored advice and guidance on the right-sized crane to suit your needs, please get in touch. Call us on 020 8059 2567 today.

3 Scenarios That Might Require a Crane Lift Over Your House

1) Lift a Hot Tub Over Your House

One of the most apparent scenarios that will probably require a crane lift over your house is to lift a hot tub into, or out of, your garden.

At Emerson Cranes, our all-terrain cranes can adapt to the majority of landscapes, lifting your new hot tub, swimming pool or at-home spa in an efficient, straightforward manner.

Our contract lift services can take care of the entire lifting operation, providing the right crane, lifting equipment and tackle, documentation and certificate to suit the task at hand. All you have to do is sit back, relax and prepare to enjoy the end result!

2) Moving Home

As you are likely aware, not every move is guaranteed to run as smoothly as you might hope.

Depending on the location of your current home and the access available, you may require some further assistance to ensure everything runs as it should.

The last thing you want to be doing on moving day is worrying about whether your most prized possessions will reach your new home in one piece. In some cases, large pieces of furniture may need to be lifted out of the property through windows and safely lowered to the ground. They can then be manoeuvred into the vehicle and carefully transported to your new home.

3) Transporting a Garden Office
If you live in a property that features limited garden access, you might require a crane lift over your house to manoeuvre your new garden office into position.

In most cases, the small, mobile building will be made in the supplier’s workshop. On the day of installation, it will be lifted onto a lorry and transported to your home. A contract lifting service will then take care of the rest, leaving you with a fully installed garden office that can be ready to use in a matter of hours.
