||Factory clearance. We have over the years completed hundred
of factory clearances, our most recent, a local pottery which
sadly failed due to the falling demand for souvenir pottery.
This image shows a clearance project completed in just 8 hours
to make way for a new racking system to be installed. We have
also undertaken clearances in factories producing fishing
equipment, food products and heavy engineering to mention just a
few. Often these clearances yield a wide range of products which
are all competitively priced, ranging from access equipment to
transportation tools, and engineering machinery to catering
||Portable building being loaded at our yard. From time to
time we have portable buildings, including containers for sale .
In this image we see our 35 ton yard crane loading a portable
office for one of our customers. We can provide loading and off
loading facilities as well as transport services including wide
and heavy loads. For the mining enthusiasts amongst you , to the
rear of the picture you can see the East Pool mine engine which
is located in the corner of our tank storage yard. The eagle
eyed may also have spotted a Royal Navy Mark8 torpedo which is
on display in our yard along with an experimental underwater
observation chamber. The latter has now been replaced by a deep
water diving bell which can be seen in the picture below.
||Bulk polythene sheeting. Here we see a load of polythene
sheeting awaiting loading for recycling in the Midlands. These
huge polythene sheets were used to form a protective lining for
bulk lorries during transportation. These liners were never used
and became surplus to requirements , so we purchased them and
found a new buyer. A classic case of recycling at its best.
||Heavy mooring equipment in our yard at Redruth. You can see
this picture is from our archives as we don't have snow very
often down here. In the foreground you can see heavy mooring
weights , whilst in the background you can see 2 rows of AM7
anchors each weighing 7 tonnes forming an archway.
||Bulk storage tank being loaded. In this image you see an ex
fuel storage tank being loaded for delivery to a customer in
Reading. The tank is to be used as a rainwater interceptor and
temporary holding tank in the event of flooding. We buy and sell
a wide range of tanks in all shapes and sizes and all materials
including Stainless steel, Plastic, fibreglass and steel. They
have a wide range of uses , one was even converted to an
underground bomb shelter!
||Jumbo crane formerly belonging to the Royal Navy at
Portsmouth was sold to a local customer for launching and
recovering small boats at a quay nearby. Contrast this one with
the crane in the next image from our hire fleet.
||130 tonne capacity mobile crane from our modern mobile
fleet. With a jib length of 300feet it is the largest mobile
truck mounted crane in the South West.
||Loading a 12 ton anchor. In the foreground you see a 12 ton
anchor being loaded on to one of our heavy transport low loaders
for onward delivery. The anchor formerly from the Navy's
aircraft carrier Ark Royal is just one of a number of Navy
anchors we have sold with a first rate pedigree, including the
Royal yacht Britannia and the Royal Navy submarine HMS
Resolution .In the background you can see our deep diving bell,
which is complete with model diver , dials, gauges etc and in
the new year we hope to have on display part of an underwater
habitat complete with underwater toilet , though we have yet to
find a model for this display!
||Here we see 2 of our operatives loading a huge generating
set for delivery to the dockyard at Southampton . This 12
cylinder monster capable of generating 550 Kilowatt of
electricity is destined for a new life in Africa. We are well
equipped for handling heavy items with a mobile crane fleet with
a capacity of up to 130tonnes and heavy low loader facilities
with a gross vehicle weight of 150 tonnes.
