King Lifting

Established as a limited company in 1982, by its present day Managing Director, Bob King. His vision was to create an independent crane hire company offering customers excellent service and value for money. We have recently introduced new products to our range including; Mobile Tower Cranes, Self Erecting Tower Cranes, Mini Crawler Cranes, & the 100ton Power Lift Gantry System to meet our customer’s changing requirements. Since establishing the business in Bristol, we have built on our success and expanded to operate from depots based in Hengoed - South Wales, Southampton, Swindon, Yeovil, West London and more recently East London. In line with our strategy of steady growth, we are continually considering further plans for expansion. Machinery installation and transport also play a key part in contributing to the company's success. We are able to offer a complete lift and shift service. Our machinery teams deliver safe and efficient solutions to machinery moving and our fleet of low, semi low loaders and flat bed vehicles together with lorry loader cranes can transport your load to any part of Europe.
