IMG_5419One of GGR Group’s mini spider cranes recently teamed up with our bespoke car hoist to lift a range of Seat cars into place at Westfield Shopping centre, in London.

The UNIC URW-706 spider crane was set up on the ground floor and had to lift two cars on to the upper floor of the shopping centre for a promotional event.

With a lifting capacity of six tonnes, the URW-706 and GGR’s bespoke car lifting hoist was easily able to lift both cars weighing in at 1210kg each.

Created by our own in-house research and development team the two frames of our specialist car hoist extend to 2.4 metres long to suit different car widths. Longer lifting slings can be fitted depending on the wheelbase length of the car.

The portable hoist consists of two steel box sections to support the wheels and sturdy slings which attach to the frame’s four points, so the car’s weight can be evenly distributed and lifted. The frame is simply slid underneath the car, straps and slings can be adjusted depending on the length of its wheelbase then the car is ready for lifting.

This portable hoist has been used for lifting everything from Mini Coopers to supercars such as Aston Martins in some of the UKs biggest airports.

Our giant spider crane had the lifting power and reach required to safely hoist these valuable loads into prime position for the client.
