Crane & HIAB

Over our many years of operating these crane lorries we have lifted a wide range of things. We can lift anything from roof trusses, joists and even modular build systems. We also carry out container movements and numerous other lifting operations such as hot tubs and helicopters, even lifting for the likes of Dyson and artwork of Banksy.


In terms of development we currently work for Persimmon, Redrow, Bovis, Kier, Bellway and many more.



At present we have:

  • 1no tractor unit with a 54 ton per meter crane, with a 29m reach, and  fly jib. Being a shorter unit and with a long reach crane we can get into most places.
  • 2no 8 wheel flatbed lorry with a 27m crane (54 ton & 48 ton per meter crane) both with a fly jib and winch, so it also has the benefit of operating  like a crane. This lorry also has a 8m flat bed and a pay load of 33 tons gross, so can carry containers etc and self-load.
  • 1no 8 wheel flatbed lorry with a 32m crane (66 ton per meter crane) also with a fly jib and winch, so it also has the benefit of operating  like a crane.
  • 1no 26ton flat bed with a 32ton per meter Hiab/ crane.
  • 1no 18ton flat bed with a 8ton per meter Hiab/ crane.
  • 1no  6 wheel plant lorry with a 32ton per meter Hiab/ crane, which is also suitable to cabins or plant such as telehandlers etc.


We also have:


  • 2no 18 Curtainsider lorries, and 1no with a 1.5ton tail lift. 
  •  2no 7.5ton Curtainsider lorries.
  • 1no 33Ton Volvo removal Lorry.
  • 2no 5Ton Iveco vans, both short and long wheel base.
  • our own van mounted Cherry Pickers with a 12.5 meter reach.
  • And a fleet of vans for our property maintenance operatives (15 in total).

A recent lift of ours was the removal of Banksy's artwork 'Aachoo!!'

March 2021 saw a Mass crane machine lift the Banksy artwork- 'Aachoo!!' from the wall attached to the side of a house in Totterdown. To be trusted with such a valuable and delicate piece of artwork was a real honour and definitely one to brag about! We like to take on challenging tasks and having this lift run smoothly was definitely one of these. This is just one of the procedures we hope adds to our credibility as crane and HIAB operators.


Relocating in close proximity to 132kv power cables.

Another complicated job completed by MASS Group. We raised air condition suites and refrigeration units onto a building under 6 no. 132kv power cables.

We completed this in conjunction with Western Power Sistribution and National Grid.
