About Liffey Crane Hire

Always Innovating - Our Growing Range of Services

In recent years, we has expanded our services to be considered a one stop shop for hire, sales, service, re-certification and induction training. We have an extensive blue book of mini-cranes, spider cranes, city cranes, vacuum and cladding lifters for hire or sale and are always open to discussing the best equipment to match your needs.

After much consultation and assessment of the industry, we decided to develop and deliver online induction training modules covering glass vacuum lifters, cladding lifters and glazing robots. In 2022 we launched the Liffey Training Academy providing operators and managers with a training resource that is focused on safety and operational features.

In addition to our products, we also offer a contract lift service and hire our mini-cranes, spider cranes, pick and carry cranes on a with or without operator basis.
