Having been operating in the lifting and handling industry for more than 30 years, Cranes-UK has grown to become one of the leading crane suppliers in the UK. We only buy and sell the best quality and well maintained systems, so whether you’re looking for a new overhead crane to improve productivity in the workplace or require a used jib crane to take the effort out of lifting, we can meet your needs. We now hold strong relationships with some of the worlds leading companies for the design, manufacture, installation and repair of all types of overhead gantry cranes, swing jib cranes and associated lifting gear, and these are just a few of the many industries we currently operate in:

With flexible payment terms, knowledgeable staff, nationwide deliveries and maintenance engineers, Cranes-UK can guide you through the buying process. We currently have access to the UK's largest stock of 'like new’ and used overhead cranes, used jib, gantry cranes, portable gantry systems and electric hoists, but our equipment changes daily, so be sure to keep an eye out on our current stock!
Many of our customers have drastically increased their productivity levels by investing in an overhead crane or jib crane. Today you don’t have to settle for lifting loads and objects that are simply too heavy and bulky to be raised by hand and the two most common types of cranes we supply are overhead cranes and jib cranes.
We can supply new and used overhead cranes that are manufactured to reach almost every inch of your factory or workshop. This is achieved by the main crane beam spanning the width of the workshop, whilst being supported by up-right columns of steel that hold the running rails for the crane to travel down the shop (we call this ‘downshop’). The hoist is then situated on the main crane beam and it can horizontally traverse along the beam by the power of the 'cross travel' wheels, which are also controlled by the operator. The operator then also has complete control over the hoist controls for lifting and lowering.
Unlike overhead cranes, swing jib cranes are perfect for those who do not require a lifting function in every corner of their workshop. Jib cranes are supplied to load lathes and other types of machinery that operate with heavy loads, whilst they are also excellent tools when it comes to maintenance applications.
Having been operating in various sectors of the crane market for more than 30 years, we’re able to offer a full range of crane and lifting solutions all under one roof. These are just a few of the cranes we supply throughout the UK on a regular basis:
