Our approach to Machine Moving is simple.

How it started

E.J McGovern Crane Hire Ltd was founded by Eddie and Thomas McGovern in 1995, since then the company has grown steadily to become a high quality crane hire company running modern cranes from 13te to 250te along with self erecting tower cranes. As the years have gone by Machine Moving has become a key part of the business

Over the past ten years McGovern Crane Hire have steadily grown the Machine moving sector of the business taking on greater jobs and investing in the latest equipment, such as the “PowerAttack” this piece of equipment paired with the correct skate configuration and ground conditions can move loads of up to 30tons with just a single person

McGovern also have a wide range of skates up a combined capacity of 80te and a range of telehandlers and forklift trucks

McGovern have invested in a Machine Moving “Toolbox” which compromises of Skates, Bars, Jacks and toolkits

We also have a wide range of gantry cranes ranging from 1t to 3t. We have the Rapide which is a light weight, easy to erect gantry with a lifting capacity of 1,000kg
