City Lifting assists Ice Cream Van movement to roof of Nightclub!

The expert team at City Lifting complete the urgent movement of a pink ice cream van and Jacuzzi to the rooftop terrace of London nightclub, Savage.

At City Lifting we are known for our competence and reliability, and never turn down an urgent or time-critical project if we believe we can solve the problem. We put these values to the test this week when our client approached us rather last minute for rapid assistance with a project at an East London Gay Nightclub, Savage. With a group effort from the City Lifting team, we managed to survey the job and quickly source the required lifting equipment to execute the operation on time and budget.

Not only were we required to lift an ice cream van, but also a concertina roof and Jacuzzi for the new rooftop terrace bar. All of this is part of the club’s £1.5m refurbishment, which also features a very interesting décor which some might say is rather decadent! Our excellent TADANO FAUN ATF-70G-4L was the crane of choice, giving us a fantastic factor of safety with the lifting calculations.

Our client was very anxious about this whole operation as his customer had suddenly sprung the project upon him very late notice. But with our expert and reliable team, City Lifting were able to put the whole package together at short notice and completed an 8-hour hire timescale in only 6 hours. On time, and on budget as always!

A very happy client equals a very happy City Lifting.



Back to projects


Yesterday evening I made the trip to Stroud to oversee the evenings activities, I feel the need to convey my appreciation on how City Lifting represented themselves during their time onsite at Sainsbury’s Stroud; I’m sure to you guys this was not a complex lift but it held its own unique set of dangers to the fabric/personnel of the store. I feel the team you sent (Joe, Glen and Brian) were a credit to themselves and  City Lifting,  everything was carried out with a ‘safety first’ attitude which is absolutely imperative while working on a live store.

The condition of the crane and appearance of the team were first class and really goes a long way to maintain our important relationship with a major client.

Good work and thanks!!

Following on from the hire you completed for us on Friday last week, could you please pass on my thanks to your team, whom according to our client did a fantastic job on the night at London bridge. It is always good to hear nice reports from Principal and Subcontractors alike.
