Construction Hoisting

Lifting and moving those heavy construction materials has never been easier with our selection of lifts.

Furniture Hoisting

Make house removals so much quicker and smoother with our Truck Mounted, Demountable or Platform lifts.

Mobile Hoisting

The 240V Demountable lift is suitable for awkward places that the larger hoist cannot access so you can get on with the job.

Cherry Picker

When it comes to accessing hard-to-reach heights or tackling those tricky, seemingly inaccessible spots on a property.

High reaching equipment for all your upper floor needs.

It all began when we identified a need within the removals industry for a safe and efficient system of raising furniture to upper floor levels. From there we realised this method of transportation could be made use of in other industry areas, such as construction.

We have three different types of external elevators for hoisting goods, furniture and equipment to height; this is a quick, efficient and economical way to hoist up a known quantity during a delivery or move.

Please contact us so we can help you make the right decision depending on the job you want to complete; there are several factors to consider when selecting the right elevator.

We contacted High Reach Systrms because we needed to get a 2 seater sofa bed into our 3rd floor flat through the window. I found them to be super helpful, professional and flexible around times/dates. They even arranged for someone to temporarily remove the window and put it back once the sofa was in which was great as I didn't have to arrange this separately and coordinate timings. A huge relief for us to have the sofa inside and we definitely recommend to anyone facing a similar issue.
A reliable efficient no hassle contractor. Booked a hoist crane to move a large heavy piece of kit to the rooftop of a central London town house. Simon was a clear communicator, booking and paperwork was straightforward. He arrived punctually, made no fuss, had a great helpful can-do attitude, worked well with my contractors. The job was done quickly and efficiently with expertise and care. Really impressed. Excellent service. Don’t often need a crane (!) but if I do I’ll know where to go next time.

Great service, great professionalism and most competitive pricing after calling many other companies. Had to get my huge sofa lifted through the window. Simon was very flexible, very punctual, clear communication. Great overall experience. Thanks Simone.
What a fantastic service! We were really stressed about getting my piano in our flat as it wouldn’t fit through the front door so it had to come through the window. Simon made everything seem really easy and it all happened in no time. He was very friendly and professional and very helpful. Thoroughly recommend his service! Thanks Simon!

Whilst we service across the UK, here are some of our most popular locations.


Often in construction there is a need for creating risk-free and economical options for transporting items and objects from high floor apartments, buildings and so on. Our hoists offer reliable and safe options for transporting goods at varying weights, sizes and heights.

We have three different types of external elevators for hoisting goods, furniture and equipment to height; this is a quick, efficient and economical way to hoist up a known quantity during a delivery or move.

We can hire the trailer mounted hoists and the demountable mobile hoist to the construction industry on a short or long term hire (with a minimum of one weeks hire) Please contact us so we can help you make the right decision depending on the job you want to complete; there are several factors to consider when selecting the right elevator. Take a look below to view the lift options we currently have available to hire.

Our standard operating area covers the entire South East of England with depots in Canary Wharf in London to Brighton on the South Coast. For longer term or major construction projects we cover the whole of the UK.

Need to know

It is the responsibility of the HRS (The Company ) operator to ensure that the elevator is installed correctly and can operate safely within the safe working load of the elevator. HRS reserve the right to withhold from installing the elevator if it is deemed to be unsafe to do so by our operator. The HRS operator reserves the right to declare a particular load or item as unsafe to travel on the elevator.

HRS cannot be held responsible for any damage incurred to items sent on the elevator unless it is caused by the failure of the elevator itself or negligence on the part of the HRS operator. HRS cannot be held responsible for any consequential damage caused by the loading or unloading of the platform at working level, or on its descent.

It is the responsibility of the hirer to ensure the suitability of any balcony or building to support the elevator and that there is a clear and stable area directly below and in line with the window for the elevator to stand and be installed, prior to arrival. It is the responsibility of the hirer to measure and make sure that the items can be safely moved through the access point.

Should there be any doubt as to the suitability and required position of the elevator by the potential hirer, HRS can offer a site visit service to discuss the requirement in detail, (charges may apply) Should you have an unusual requirement in this regard however, we will always try and accommodate this.

A clear photograph or sketch may assist us in assessing the property. We would point out that as outlined in Elevator Charges section. A full charge will be made if upon arrival on site the elevator is not able to be used for the purpose for which it was hired. Therefore we would recommend that a provisional site visit be made if there is any doubt as to the suitability or access for the elevator.

Whilst every effort is made by HRS to adhere to the requested start time, we cannot be held responsible for delays occasioned by traffic problems, previous job overruns or any circumstances beyond our control.

HRS provide the service of the elevator complete with operator. The provision of the labour force to load and off load the elevator is the responsibility of the hirer. If in doubt call us and we will recommend a company. Maximum load of 400kg depending on height.

Where the elevator is required to be positioned in areas where there are parking restrictions it is the Hirer’s responsibility to arrange for the relevant permission required from the authorities concerned.

The permission may be granted in the form of a dispensation or suspension order, or possibly a partial road closure – depending on the location concerned. It should be taken into account that in some situations the above orders can apply to both sides of a public highway to allow the traffic to flow freely and enable the operation to be carried out safely.

PLEASE NOTE that when booking Parking Suspension our equipment is an elevator on a small truck (transit size) not a crane. We recommend two parking bays – directly below the window or balcony to be suspended. Any penalties incurred by High Reach Systems Ltd as a result of parking arrangements/obligations being neglected will be passed onto the hirer.

For customers not holding a credit account with HRS, cleared payment must be received by HRS two working days prior to the operation in order for us to proceed. 2

  • Cancellation up to 12.00 noon preceding day NO CHARGE.

  • Cancellation on same day as scheduled operation before arrival 50% of hire charge is chargeable.
