Lifting Services & Equipment

Sales, Hire, Load Testing & Repairs

Scotland’s First Choice for Lifting Gear

A wide range of industrial sectors in Scotland, including construction and renewable energy, look to SWL to provide for all their needs when it comes to lifting equipment.

From our base in Invergordon on the Cromarty Firth we’ve supplied lifting and safety equipment across the country for decades.

We’re full members of LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) – the leading representative body for the worldwide lifting industry. This recognition, coupled with our extensive high-quality stock for hire or sale, means we are the first choice for any enterprise requiring lifting equipment.

We have the edge on other lifting gear suppliers because our service is backed up with expert knowledge and impeccable maintenance, along with delivering a raft of on-site inspection and testing practices. We also offer lifting equipment repairs for a variety of makes and models.

Our Lifting Equipment Safety Services

Besides keeping our own hire equipment well maintained and compliant with stringent safety standards, our lifting equipment engineers travel to sites all over Scotland to look after our clients’ own equipment.

We are competent and qualified to carry out periodic inspections of lifting equipment in accordance with LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations), issuing a Report of Thorough Examination.

At our Invergordon headquarters we have a testing facility to carry out load testing, supported by Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) by way of MPI or Dye Pen.

As part of our lifting equipment safety services we are also able to examine clients’ plant and machinery for PUWER (Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998) compliance.

Safety is very important to us, so if your equipment is found to fall short of requirements, we’ll be able to assist you with repairs and remedies.

Meeting the Challenges

We’re proud to say that our experience and expertise is legendary in the lifting industry in Scotland and beyond. 

We are appointed distributors for leading manufacturers in the lifting and safety industry, such as Tractel, Crosby, Rud, Tiger and many more. We also stock a large range of spares and accessories for all the lifting equipment we supply.

Our fleet of lifting apparatus available for hire is unsurpassed. Speak to us for whatever you need to get your project moving.

Last, but by no means least, we have to mention our unique online WEBCERT system, which enables our clients to retrieve their compliance and safety certification whenever they need it – perfect for inventory control. All our customers qualify for their own WEBCERT log in.

Over the years we have honed our service offering to make lifting as easy and safe as possible for industry across Scotland. SWL has expanded to include electrical and fire protection divisions, and we’ll continue to meet the challenges of the future
